It seems there might be a wee bug with the board software (or so it appears to me)...

One of my posts ("The Hoop" in the Glamour / Erotic section) has 17 replies and the icon has now changed to the "hot topic" one. It no longer shows the red folder to indicate to me that I'd posted in that thread.

Is this by design, or by glitch?

Huh?

(My question is a dumb question?)

Take a look at the screen capture I posted: The first circled icon is for a thread I posted which is popular. It does NOT show any red in it.

The second is also a popular topic in which I responded. As far as I can tell, this one and the first should have the SAME icon. They do NOT. This one DOES have red in it.

The third circled one is a less popular thread I started, and it shows the red folder.

It looks (STILL!) like there is a bug in the code that determines the icon displayed, and it screws up depending on whether or not you were the thread starter. I rest my case.

I think the problem is that only one icon can be shown at any time. If you have an icon that shows topics you have posted in, and the topic then becomes a 'hot topic' then the software defaults to showing the 'hot topic' icon. It could be described as a bug I suppose, but it has to show one or the other. I guess it assumes a 'hot topic' trumps the 'topic I've posted in' icon.

I'd like to see us get different icons altogether for "hot," etc. Something a bit animated would be nice.
