What do the left, ICONS mean.

Postby Methiculous » Sat Apr 27, 2013 3:17 pm

Beside posts, on the left, there is an Icon and it is mostly a circle with what looks like a 'paragraph' most of the time.
Sometimes it is red, sometimes it animates and scrolls upward. There is one that is a light bulb and many others.

I'm just wondering what they mean?

(Again, maybe this is obvious to some, but not to me.)
I am a curious laymen.....

I looked for a 'legend' to describe them but couldn't find one.
I close my eyes and see what I can see, whatever it may be.
It could be the sea, or I could see a bee.
Don't you see? It doesn't matter to me. Just let it be!

Anytime one of them is RED it means there are new posts.

The Paragraph looking one is the normal one.
The moving paragraph means it's a hot topic, I believe, with lots of quick posts.
The lightbulb is a stickie post.

I'm trying to find a legend to show...
