moving text icon - what does it mean?

Socialise and chat about other areas of your life
I expect this has been asked and answered before somewhere, but what does that icon to the left of the topic mean in the forum's topic lists and why is it moving next to some posts? It looks like text :?: thanks - it's been really puzzling me. :dry:
Hi Robbie,

I'm not 100% sure but I think it indicates an on-going 'conversation' :)

I'll double check with the IT guys and get back to you !
I think it denotes a topic that you have posted on.

I don't think it is that Crocus - if it was a lot more of the icons on my screen would be moving :lol: :lol:
Good question Robbie58. Here's some explanation for what the different icons mean:
  • Red icons are unread items, blue/grey are read.

    A star on any topic means you have posted in it.

    The scrolling icon means it is a popular topic (more than 20 replies).

    Some icons are a strange shape and have an exclamation mark in them - this means they are sticky (they will always be 'stuck' to the top of the board, even if no-one has posted for a while).

    If there's a padlock in the icon it's locked.
Hope this helps - will try find a graphic which shows what the icon looks like and what it means as well.
Thank you Kate, that is really helpful.
Yes that is helpful Kate. Thanks very much
And thanks to susieq and crocus too :)

Robbie
