What do all the symbols mean?

Postby mattjgilbert » Fri Dec 05, 2008 11:59 am

next to topics or posts (e.g. to the left of all the items in the most recent topics list on the forums index page). Are they just random or are they symbolic (a good thing for symbols :) )?

It's somewhat symbolic of symbology to be somewhat esoteric and occult in it's hidden meanings somewhat.

I don't know either, perhaps we have not been initiated into some Spacktastic inner cult/circle, wherein the meaning is revealed???

But, if anything is (un)sure, if the sybolic symbols were chosen pretty much at random, their meanings will probably be more interesting than if they are truly represesntative of something (as we can invest them with all sorts and make yet another religion up on the spot).

Right at the bottom of the home page of the forums a few are shown. I'll add the rest, I thought there were already there.

Skull: announcement
Fist: you have posted in this thread
Wolfhead: you started this thread
Inverted skull: Popular topic (lots of replies)
Lightning: no special meaning
Padlock: locked topic

and then the colour matters:

White: no new posts
Orange: new posts

Ha! I guess I don't pay enough attention* (or visit the bottom of the page very much).

* see the recent "black and white what admech stuff now?" scenario in my ultramarine project log. Stuff that's obvious to some often just bypasses me completely.
