    What's With the Forum Symbols


    Where can I learn about the symbols used in this forum that are positioned before the question title? "Solved" is easy enough to grasp, but what about the thumbs up, smilies or blue question marks? I don't get why they are there, and I couldn't find the info in the FAQ's or anywhere else.

    I don't get why they are there,
    Why do people use smilies?
    The thumbs up, smilies, light bulb or blue question mark are something to hi-light your post.
    Can make it easier to find your post or to express a feeling.

    IIRC you can add emoticons to your thread title. These emoticons are unique to thread titles when you create a new thread. Other than that, you are stuck with the basics. I think people should tell more jokes so I can use the emoticon.

    OK, I guess some of them are more applicable to some topics, but maybe not all.
    Thanks.

    Yeah, I am not sure what the "Post" icon is supposed to mean. I think I have recognized that icon in other forums to mean there is information listed within the post. Kinda like an FYI.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
