Other forums I go to, indicate one way or the other,(sometimes a check, other times my nym) threads I have posted to. Is it possible to do the same here?

I do not think that it is possible with our current software but Eric would know for sure.

There is a ✰ that appears on the far left side of the thread listings in all forums. When you see that ✰, it means that you have participated in that thread.

However, I will tell you this... I cannot see that star with my Firefox browser. I have to use Chromium to see it. So, for me to keep track of posts I've participated in I use a combination of "Notifications" and the "Unread" link, which I have customized to show posts that I "follow" when I click on it.

Ah, that is what the star is for. I figured it was something else as it is grayed out.

I don't think it's actually grayed out. I think it's just that faded color on porpoise. ;)

I see the star in Firefox 78.12.0esr. Didn't realise what it meant until now, so thanks Eric. You seem to have occasional weird problems with your FF, too many custom user preferences?

Nah... more than likely, it's my VERY locked-down security settings.

Thank you for explaining the significance of that star! I did not know what it meant. Problem solved!

uhm, are you sure about that? When I hover over a filled in star the minipopup says "go to first unread post". Unless by "participated" you mean read a post and not just wrote a post.

 I think a filled-in dark star means you have contributed and there are new posts in that thread. If there are new posts in a thread to which you haven't contributed you will see a blue circle.

Contributed also includes clicking the "Like" button on the lower right side of a post, I believe.

And yes to this. I forgot to mention the blue circles in my replies above.

wow, to me that star / circle is very subtle , didn't realize they were not the 'same' thing. how do people using phones tell the difference?
