At the bottom left of our posts are three thingies. (Please forgive the technical language.) One is a feather-like image which I know is for rep points. The circle to the left and the triangle to the right confuse me. I was not able to find anything in the FAQs section to tell me what they are. Can someone please enlighten me, and tell me what the different colors on the circle mean. (I suspect red is not good, but I'd like to know.) Thanks so much!

You can find out by moving your mouse over each icon and waiting for the description to show up. :) The dot on the left lets you know if the person is online, and the triangle one is for reporting when a post is offensive or generally horrible.

Cheers,

Torin

A red dot means you're on anonymously. You'll see it only on your own posts. When you're on anonymously, everyone else sees the "offline" color (dull blue) on your posts.

Thank you both so much.
