Do you mean to say you "get the envelope with the dot in it every time you start a new thread" ?

Any thread you post to, whether you start it or someone else started it, will show TO YOU with an envelope with a dot in it. The purpose of it is to point out to you in the list of threads in the forum just which threads you've participated in - as topic starter or replier.

Not a silly question at all Lori! I had to figure it out myself when we first got the new boards and had the task of sorting through all the bells and whistles.

Welcome and don't hesitate to ask no matter how silly it may seem. And you can always PM me if you'd prefer.

And that's actually what I'm trying to figure out too! All these bells and whistles are awesome!

Is there a central thread that explains most or should I just keep wandering around?

The FAQ may answer many things for you but I imagine there may be some things that aren't covered in it. If so post here and I'll try to help.

Also you'll find some (but not all) of the icons explained at the bottom of the threads index pages.

I am planning to gather some of the questions and answers from this board and include them in the FAQ so your questions are useful. Thanks!
