What does the red star mean on the circular "Topics" icon?

For Example
Click on "Board Index"
then click on "Moving to Andalucia"
You will see a red star on the icon for the variuos topics that you have posted to.
You haven't made many post in "Moving to Andalucia"

A screenshot for you.

The red stars in the icons against the variuos topics ar topics that I posted into.

When you access "About this Forum" you should see a red star against the "cant post" topic as you posted in there. I didn't.

Hi Enrique
Perhaps the system run out of red stars for you as you post so many times?
:think: :silent: :wave: :silent: :think:
Must confess that I hadn't taken any notice of the red stars until I looked for them.
I then did a bit of digging to come to the conclusion what they where for.

You won’t see it if you haven’t posted to the topic.

I have to say that I can’t really see the point of it. If you are a contributor to the thread I think you would know that and not need to be reminded.

Enrique - I bet if you looked at the computer section, there would be some red stars ! They are in the blue/red edged circle (depending if read or not) to the left of the thread title, & just above the little lines that represent text... see them now ? ;-)
