Post A very odd question about thread icons.

By icons, I'm not reffering to the ones we can choose on our new threads. I'm talking about the little paper ones that go on every thread; the ones where locked threads get the little image of a lock on.

Similar to that lock image, I've noticed on a few threads that there is a little orange box on a few. ??? I'm slightly curious as to the meaning of this. Just asking...thanks.

Edit: There is one on this thread.

Those are called 'dot icon's... they appear every time you have participated in a thread, by posting. It's an easier way to find out which threads you posted in.

Ah. Thank you. That also explains why all of my threads have that icon.
