Hello my dear Staff. The forum is wonderful and I am so thankful for it.
I hope I have not missed the answer somewhere else - if I did, I apologize!
I've been a member for a while now, and I've really only ever found one thing confusing - all the different colored icons that appear for threads. There seems to be a teal, orange, red, and yellow.
Unfortunately I do not understand their reasons, because whether or not I've posted in a thread, I always see it with a different colored icon. Perhaps a legend of what each color means might be useful to those like me trying to keep track of what I've read and where I've posted.
Also as for the green arrow, I get that in threads I have and haven't replied to.

- popular topic (read)
You've read it, but it's not so popular
- popular with new replies, or popular which you haven't read
a new thread, not popular (yet)
