View Full Version : Already posted symbol?

Okay guys/gals -
So I've run into a problem in the P101 forums specifically. Some of those surveys and questions tend to amass pages and pages of responses. I like to get my two cents in before it goes to more than 10 replies, and I sometimes do. But once it runs over 1 page, it becomes incredibly hard for me to know if, and what, I commented on the post. Is there an icon, or can there be, so that we can tell what we've already responded to? I know I'm not the only one who's responded twice to the same survey because I can't remember.

There is one. On the skin I'm using (Bingo!), when I've already posted in a thread, this icon will appear to the left of the thread title (with the little black dot in the middle): http://www.virtualteen.org/forums/images/styles/bingo/statusicon/thread_dot_hot.gif or http://www.virtualteen.org/forums/images/styles/bingo/statusicon/thread_dot.gif

This is what it looks like when I haven't posted in a thread: http://www.virtualteen.org/forums/images/styles/bingo/statusicon/thread_hot.gif or http://www.virtualteen.org/forums/images/styles/bingo/statusicon/thread.gif

This key is visible at the bottom of any forum section I'm browsing:

The default theme has it too.


So I think we can asume the mail icon with a dot in the middle means you've already answered that thread :D

In some themes it changes. Dark Inferno for example:

aren't all the surveys pretty much the same thing asked over and over again? (answer: yes)
