You see those folders to the far left of each thread title in a forum? Some are pink, some are yellow, some are on fire, and then there are those with a big fat black dot.

I understand that pink folders stands for an active thread with a new unread post, and one on fire stands for a "hot thread" but what's the deal with the folders with a big fat black dot? There are pink folders with a dot, normal yellow folders with a dot, and a folder on fire with a dot. So, basically, random folders have a dot.

I don't understand. What does that big fat black dot represents?

Any opinion is welcomed. :)

I had an answer, but then I was wrong.

If that's true, then why do I still see most folders without the dot?

03-02-2004, 07:43 PM
Dots are threads where you have a reply already.

03-02-2004, 07:43 PM
Do those little black dots not signify that you have replied to that certain topic. That way, you can easily look at the folders and instantly tell which ones you have been active in.

Huzzah. *gains a new black dot*


I curse you Nait for posting just before me. :( You make my opinion void.

HEY, you're right! Wow, I learn something new........ every once in a while. :D

03-02-2004, 07:45 PM
Yeah, I was puzzled by that when I was making icons for Aiyon but then I said buggerit and made everything look the same. :D

03-02-2004, 07:46 PM

The dots are there to make little girls ask questions.

Well I'll be.

See, even long-established member, RSL didn't know.

03-03-2004, 05:14 AM
You guys are noobs of highest calibre. I haven't sexored you enough it seems.

03-03-2004, 05:17 AM
what are you waiting for then? SEXOR THEM!

I thought it was to point out what you had posted in... or visited. Seemed obvious to me.

*makes mental note to always poke fun at Proto for this thread.*

The black spot is actually a <a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0117110/">dreaded pirate curse</a>.

03-03-2004, 05:59 AM
What the hell, Kishi?

Anyway, don't feel bad. It took me now nearly 3 years to realize there was an arcade here.

This thread is making my head spin. RSL too? You guys aren't joking about this, are you?

03-03-2004, 06:51 AM
What kind of staff are you guys?

I'm going to go ahead and agree with Del on this one. I knew that stuff the first day I joined. You people are whack.

03-03-2004, 09:20 AM
Haha, this reminds me when I didn't know that girls didn't have Adam's apples and everyone was like wtf.

03-03-2004, 09:34 AM
it's actually very useful, that black dot. now if only the folders would change color after I view the thread...

03-03-2004, 10:26 AM
The folders change colour if you use http://img31.photobucket.com/albums/v92/ifiredanuke/Eoffnav.jpg to navigate. :p

This thread had better be a pisstake.

If RSL didn't know about it, nobody else was supposed to until he did. You have all failed.

I see it all now. I was confused about those dots.

This thread is going to go down in EoFF history as the Humbling of the Staff.

I'm just waiting for the day of The Humbling of WesLY. That will surely be a thread to remember.

I knew about the pink/yellow folders, and sort of know about the flames (is it number of posts in the thread or something?)

But...whoa, there are dots?!

I need to post more.

The addam's apple thing was just as bad, but at least that was about knowledge. This is about logic and common sense.
