Recommended Posts

what does this symbol mean? the one all the way to the left that looks like a fat comma that got spun around a bit:

I think that is a flame, that is supposed to indicate a "hot topic".

If you mouseover the little icon, it has popup text that says "hot topic." Although Mr. Snazz thinks it's a duck.

Thanks for the 'splaining!

i think (but am not certain) that it's meant to tell you whether or not there are new responses since you last read it.

what constitutes a hot topic? I'm guessing there's a reply threshold. But are there other ways to make a topic hot?

Are we talking about the folder or the flame??

 

I couldn't point you to where it explained but I think the yellow folder = new replies, while the flame = hot topic. (no idea when a topic becomes 'hot')

Other possible descriptions are: a thumbs up = hot topic

or: a yellow duck = hot topic.

 

Everyone knows that yellow ducks are way hot.

In the other forums I read a "Hot Topic" is one that is viewed quite a bit. It has nothing to do with the amount of replies.

 

With InfoPop, who knows though. They dance to the beat of a different drummer it seems.
