Icons Decoded

Post by shafer » Thu Dec 16, 2010 3:24 pm

This is a summary of the topic icons and what they mean.

Two general points
- Red icons are unread items, blue/grey are read
- A star on any thread means you have posted in it

For example:
Image - Read topic (No one has posted to this topic since your last visit.)
Image - Unread topic (Someone has posted to this topic since your last visit.)
Image - Read topic that you have posted in
Image - Unread topic that you have posted in

Other icon definitions (the blue=read / red=unread rule applies to these as well)
Image - Announcements from the administrators.
Image - Sticky thread
Image - Hot topic
Image - Locked thread
Image - Moved thread
Image - Forum with subforums
Image - Link forum

More icons:
Image - Attachment
Image - Go to last post in the thread
Image - Go to last unread post in the thread
Image - Subforum read
Image - Subforum unread

I find the sticky icons under the topics heading highly confusing. Can stickies be reduced or moved to the announcements area? The Freshwater Forum looks great and is easy to follow compared to the the Loaches and Fish Health Forum. I won't even go to the Fish Health forum anymore because it's too much work figuring out which posts are the most recent. I have to scroll down a 2 full screens just find new post. Thanks.

The moving "Hot Topics" icon is my favorite. I think if they all moved it would be confusing.
