Folder_hot.gif image - what's it mean?





peaceninja
So when I click on view last posts when I'm in the Forums page (I'm not even going into why I think this option and many others should be available regardless of what screen I'm on), I see this icon in addition to other icons:



I understand the other icons (one indicates recent activity and one indicates no activity). But I don't understand this one. it's labeled folder_hot but it's topics as "hot" that I would interpret more as "stagnant". So what makes a topic hot and what are the conditions under which I would see this?

There are several different designations a folder (thread) might have:
-hot: has a number of posts above the popular threshold (set by the admin)
-new: has new posts in it
-sticky: will be above the other posts normally
-announcement: will be above even the stickies
-locked: cannot be posted in

Any thread can have any combination of these attributes (except that sticky and announcement cannot co-exist), and the more common combinations have special icons; the one you posted is one of these.

There is a key at the bottom of the topic view page; (not animated below)


It's listed as popular there which helps to explain it better though ocalhoun has done a good job as well. Smile

this is a big help, thanks!

it's hard to get information because the search feature does not seem to let you use quotations, and rules and FAQ are not really complete, and each page does not have the same legends or menus.
