What do the wee symbols mean?

Post by artelagro » Sat Sep 16, 2017 8:41 pm

5 x Black lines in a circle
5 x Orange lines in a circle – (Sometimes 2 x sets of lines)
A black flame in a circle
A black dot at 1 o’clock
An Orange paper clip
Why do some of the above move after a wee dram?

Am I the only one who can't use a computer?

Black seems to indicate that you've read all the messages, whereas orange indicates that there are unread messages. This should apply to all the symbols.

This is probably just the default icon used for a topic.
2x sets indicate that the forum section contains subforum sections.

This is a "hot" topic. I think it might be classified thus once it reaches a certain number of posts.

I believe the dot indicates that you have posted in the thread.

An Orange paper clip
The paperclip indicates that there are attachments to some posts, e.g. photos or other files.

Thanks for that Morne.
Have you ever seen the moving ones or is it just me?

I thought you were asking about the symbols on register switches, but I've never seen them so weird.

I don't recall any moving symbols. It might be that something just happened, e.g. a new post. Or it might just be that wee dram after all.

That's only when you install ALL the bells and whistles! :D

Artelagro:

Drink enough wine and they ALL move !
The keys move, the registers move, everything moves.....of course you can't play very well when all that stuff is moving. Anyone that's played long enough in clubs, (I suspect) has found themselves in a situation when there are a lot of moving things !

These days we are older and more mature.
