Forum Thread Count Highlights and Meanings

After more than a year and a half on the forums a question riddled me…

What does the individual highlights on the forum thread counts mean?

So in the screenshot i took this morning we have

• Number in Grey
• Number in Orange
• Number in Brown
• Number in a Blue Circle

It’s probably a stupid question but can anyone kindly clarify what these mean and also any other status’ which i may have missed from the screenshot?

Thank you

The blue circle means there are new posts that you haven’t read.

The orange and brown relate to how “hot” a thread is, measured by like to post ratio. The more likes per post, the brighter the highlight.


That’s very enlightening :grin:
Thank you for the detailed answer actreal.
