What does that circular icon next to each thread title indicate? Some have lines moving upwards and others are still.
I have tried to find out by hovering the cursor over it but it tells you nothing.

Seems to be just a miscellaneous icon which indicates a thread supposedly containing info. It's like a box that isn't ticked. The red coloured ones highlight threads with unread posts, and the globe shape ones are presumably stickies.

The ones with the red stars are ones that the user viewing the page has posted in.

I always assumed the scrolling indicated that the thread was more than one page long. Not sure if it's that way in all cases though.

The scrolling occurs when there is more replies than the average topic. That icon changes when there has been 24 replies, meaning 25 posts in total so far :P

Why does such an eye catching icon have to be so shrouded in mystery?
You would think there was an easier way to work out it's meaning than to start this topic.
It must be more for the benefit of those in the know than regular readers who are subject to seeing all that scrolling. :roll:

Well actually, when it's at 24 replies that is still the 1 page. 25 posts per page, so at 25 replies (1 after the scrolling icon appears) will be the start of the 2nd page :P
