What are the symbols?

Postby jojo54 » Oct 18, 2010 5:40 pm

I am new to the forum and wondering about the symbols on the left-hand side of the forum list. There is a circle with whaa looks like blue writing or red writing or rolling writing. Then there also is a circle with an i in it. I can't find anywhere that tells me what these are.
I love gardening, chickens, baking, reading - not necessarily always in that order. check out my blog http://mountaingardengleanings.blogspot.com/

Blue means no new post since your last login.

Red means new posts since your last login.

Rolling writing means a very active topic.

A red star means a thread you've participated in.

Well thanx Skwij. :) I always wondered abt that 'scrolling' in the circle thingy. :wink:

The circle with the 'i' in it???? I'm noticing that Kelly didn't just leap in there and explain that. :wink: I'm thinking that it has something to do with the IT crew onsite.

An asterisk in the circle thingy means that u have posted in that thread. :)

I'm a little slow and but I turned the brain back on again!

That one is used by admin and mods to make an announcement of some sort. Essentially i is for Important!
