    Mean nothing at all. They are called Avatars and thats about it. They serve no purpose at all except to liven up the board a bit.

    One in red is a "Popular" thread with new messages, since the last time you signed in.

    One in yellow is a thread (with less posts), with new messages, since the last time you signed in.

    Hense for the two above there are open envelopes.

    A grey one simply means there's nowt new.

    Those with black dots in, no matter what colour the envelope, are threads you have contributed to.

    Then theres the ones with the padlocks on which are LOCKED, ie you can no longer contribute to it.
