Squares to the left of posts?

(Formerly the "Support, Feedback and Forum Announcements" forum.)
Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

If you have a question, problem, or suggestion regarding the review team system, whether as author or a reviewer, please use the private contact forum.

It's not new, but not a lot of threads have them. They're just optional icons when opening a new thread :tiphat:

Though I'm not sure they're available for all forums :eusa-think:

I'm not really technologically inclined (and I'm sure it's been obvious in some of my posts), so I've just been guessing about the boxes without really knowing for sure. :D :oops: :roll:

Haha I'm in the same boat as you, I've always wondered about them and now the mystery is solved thankfully. :)

I wish I had found this thread a couple of months. Very helpful, especially being able to tell which threads you've posted in, as some are very similar.

Another cool tip: if you click on the tiny square (located next to the title of threads with new posts), it will take you to the last post you viewed in that thread :)

Just don't ask how long I'd been here before I found that out :doh:

So all of my posts are grey because I am a new member, right. What does a star mean inside a box and two boxes are on top of each other. And what is a sticky topic?

A star means you have posted to that thread at least once before. And you are correct about the two boxes on top of each other. :)

When topics are grey it's because you've viewed/posted to them, and nobody has posted after you. Two boxes on top of one another means it's a sticky topic (sticky topics stay at the top their forum), and two boxes beside each other means it's a global announcement.
And the stars indicate that you posted to the topic at some point :tiphat:
