Hey, what's with these topic icons?

Some have scrolling text, some not. Some have a star, some not. Anyone figure out what they mean?

It looks like it might have something to do with the number of replies-

Every post with 24+ replies has the scrolling icon- maybe to alert us to the hot music discussion topics (like the weather... :? )

I think the star indicates that it is a post that you have replied to.....

Great question!

I don't know about the "star" or the "scrolling", but if it is "blue", then you have posted on the thread. If it is "red", you have not.

I'm guessing if it is scrolling, maybe you have read it?

There are a lot of threads I have not read or posted to, so I can see the correlation.

Ah, crap! Never mind. I just saw one thread I started that was "red" and one that I started that is "blue"! It blew my whole theory.

Oh, yeah! I always check on those people 2-3 thousand miles away to hear what their weather woes are!

Just a observation. Leave cursor over Icons pop up says.....
Blue circle "No new posts"
Red circle " New Posts"
Star "Threads you have replied to"
Little icon next to thread title takes you to "View first unread post in the thread"
Scrolling post "Who knows" :?

That was a genuine, "Laugh Out Loud!" Nice one.

And I was too embarrassed to ask the questions y'all have.
