Didn't there used to be a little yellow 'envelope' next to any threads that you were subscribed to? Where have they gone? It is a lot harder to keep track of threads without them.

Has anyone else experienced these disappearances, or is it just me?

There have been a few little things disappearing, but nobody told me just what each little change of the envelope meant, so I didn't pay that much attention. A black dot means you have a post in that thread though doesn't it?

I think so. The yellow symbol was very obvious, though, and I could just glance down a page and see what threads were mine, without having to plow through the debris.

Would have come in handy. Though I just look at the thread starter list usually, unless I see an interesting topic.

Well, I suppose. Still, I prefer the old way...

P.S. Who just bad-repped me on this thread? What did I say that was offensive / rude? It was only a question. 'Welcome Back' is not a valid reason!

Really? Well, why can't I? We are talking about the same thing - the little yellow symbols that indent the title slightly, right?

As far as I can recall, that means that the thread is 'hot'. ie. more than 30 replies (this is from way back, when 30+ posts was extremely rare).

ok - thanks - but after i've clicked on it and read or made a post and gone back to the main page it goes back to grey or yellow again.

it's all a bit complicated for my tiny brain :confused:

When they show as red or yellow it means there are new unread post in the thread.
After you read it they go back to gray.
It just helps to see where the new posts are.

How many points did it take off you? I'm guessing it would be Maskall, trying to hide the fact and that he can no longer give bad rep on the other thread.
