View Full Version : What do the colors around the thread envelopes mean?

Why are some of the envelopes orange and some are grey? I read through the FAQ but couldn't find it anywhere. I know when they have the yellow arrow, they have been moved, but I can't figure out the other part. The only thing I could think of is an online member is reading the thread, but I don't think that is it.

Gray you've read, red(orange) means there's a new post?

It stays orange or grey I believe. The title is bolded when there is a new post to a thread you have already read or a thread you haven't read at all.

Idk, but I know if I click on a red envelope, i.e. read that thread, it turns gray immediately, and if I see that thread again is red, it has a new post.

Hmm... Mine doesn't do that. Maybe it is because I'm doing it through my phone, the browser is set up differently. the envelopes are this color for me

yeah lol mine are red... now I'm curious and feel a tad stupid, you know the answer to this is probably common sense

Probably. I can't think of what it might be though. I started a thread the other day about quitting smoking that shows up orange now, but this thread we are talking on shows up grey. Hopefully spamgirl or taintturk come to this thread. They seem to know just about everything I've wondered about so far.

Been at least 15 years, maybe it is a flashback ?

the blue means it has new posts and less than 150 views

(so the grey turns blue when it has new posts!)

If the envelope is fluorescent orange, it means they're about to shut off your utilities.
