    Default what do the new icons mean?

    Is there a legend somewhere that explains what the new post icons mean? I'm making some guesses, but some documentation would be nice.

    I find the red rather dark and easy to confuse with the black. Probably because I'm a bit colour-blind to red.

    I have seen (now?) something like a legend with four icons explained down on http://forums.opensuse.org/ . It is called
    Icon Legend
    .
    And also e. g. down on Forums Feedback with other icons but also called
    Icon Legend
    .

    And I like the colors (but I think that was not known to Kim and so not the reason for that change... ).

    Ah, but that only has 4 icons and also I never bother with the front page. I just go straight to new posts.

    And also e. g. down on Forums Feedback with other icons but also called .
    That page has the full legend but it's even harder to distinguish the dark red and black in those small icons.

    But never mind, I can see that it's not a concern to me whether a topic is hot or not.

    IMHO they are too large and too bright.

    Yep, I aggree. Way too bright. I am not sure about the color, they break the harmony.

    Not sure if that was intended. Probably something that went wrong during the last update

    Good point. A significant percentage of the male population suffers from colour-blindness to varying degree. The most common is red-green (IIRC).

    I hope it is only a blip, as I agree with those who said: too large, too bright, and breaks the harmony. Also more difficult to spot the "previously posted in" threads.

    I like the design, but IMHO the red icons should be green. Not just to make them better visible for @ken_yap.
