Forum Howto

Postby edroberts1943 » Thu Oct 06, 2016 1:06 pm

FG is great and the Forum seems to be one of the most useful I have ever encountered. There are relatively few nonsense post such as seen on many forums.

Could someone tell me where to find what the forum topic indicators (airplane icons) mean- red, red with small plane, red with exclamation mark, etc. It has gotta be someplace but I haven't found it.

Red means that you haven't yet read it, the other icons can be selected by the topic starter (IIRC).

Small plane means it's a subforum (so a category containing topics). Exclamation mark indicates sticky topics and the i symbol is used for announcement topics. Both of these stick to the top of a subforum, unlike the rest of topics that are ordered on last post date. The moderators use this for important or very useful topics.
