Left side icons

Post by Railroaded » Fri Mar 05, 2010 9:12 am

What do the icons at the left side of the message listings stand for? (one looks like a scrolling letter with a star, one looks like a padlock?)

The icons you speak of, are just small animations depicting the thread status. Scrolling text means its a "Hot Topic" with more than 20 posts. The star means you have contributed in the thread. The Padlock is a Locked Thread, which means that it is accessible, but posting is not allowed, unless you are a Moderator/Admin.

The scrolling means an active topic that gets a lot of responses.

The lock means a moderator has locked the thread and that discussion has ended for the time being.
