Just wanted to know what the binoculars meant.
Here is the image:
Your picture doesn't show up, but usually binoculars are for search.
My sense is that they mean (if it is the same symbol that I have in mind) - that you yourself have made a post to that particular thread in the relatively recent past, - perhaps as recently as this very day.
I tweaked your post to show the image.
I believe what you are seeing there is you are "watching" the thread. So you either manually clicked "watch thread" at the top, or you replied in the thread and have your settings configuring to watch threads automatically when you reply in them.
Where should that image appear? I've never seen it, either on threads I contributed to (which are watched automatically) or on threads where I manually click "Watch Thread". I tried it again, by manually watching this thread before I responded. I don't see it in the thread itself, or where the thread title appears on listings of threads.
It does not seem to show for everybody. I don't see them either. This is a known issue and I'm not sure of the answer.
But they show up on the thread list view. Here is a screenshot from Smallnetbuilder Xenforo forums where you can see a couple threads I am watching. You can see the sticky and locked thread icons there also.
I don't believe it ever shows up for me with iOS, but it does show up with Firefox on Win10 when browsing a forum list.
They, in fact, also appear on my office's iMac. Perhaps it's a mobile vs. desktop issue?
I'm on desktop using the latest macOS/Safari versions and don't see them.
Haha. Of course not!
They should be there, but perhaps it's all still related to a somewhat old and odd issue that hasn't quite been figured out so far: https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/missing-icons-no-padlock-or-pushpins-showing-up.2018636/
