What do the icons in the Dicussions mean? Javier Vegas March 07, 2016 17:57 Follow There are five icons you might see in the Discussions: The heart indicates a topic that you have bookmarked or was bookmarked automatically because you posted it.You can edit your bookmarks by going to [your name] > Bookmarks. The "new" icon indicates that the topic you are viewing is new or has a new comment. The chili pepper indicates that the Discussion topic in question has a relatively high number of views and comments. It is a way to pinpoint which forum topics have the most activity within the forum - your group's "hot topics." If you only have a couple of minutes to see what's new with your group, following the chili pepper is a good place to start. The lock indicates that the topic contains private comments, only visible to you.
