I have seen topics having folder with red asterisk next to it. What does that mean? I know about red circle means resolved. I read this page Ranch Guide but didn't find about it.

Look at the contents page of this forum or any other forum, and scroll right to the bottom of the page. There you will find all the folder icons with explanations.

The forum has marked the topic as a "hot topic". I believe the formula is based on the number of responses. The topic needs a lot of responses to be marked as such.

Not sure how many responses; I have somehow got 15 into my head, so that is probably wrong.
[edit]I have found a 16‑post thread with no red asterisk, so 15 is definitely wrong. Maybe it is 20 responses.

Thank you all. Not complaining but thought to inform you as it always makes me ponder on that

BTW, this is true for the old view... it seems that the legend didn't completely move to the new (now current) view. Perhaps this needs to be looked into?

Or move the icons to the Ranch Guide mentioned earlier?

This sounds good, all information would be available at one place.

Ganish,

Well, the ranch guide page is a wiki page *and* you have lots of cows, so hence, can be trusted with it...   ... How about doing it yourself? And perhaps, earn some more cows?

BTW, you may need to switch back to the old view, in order to get the legend images (and descriptions).

Hope this helps,
Henry

Yes sure why not. Already switched back to old view but where can I get the legend images with description?

On the contents page for any forum. Scroll down to the bottom of the page.

My pleasure

Beware: those icons will probably vanish when the old view is discontinued.
