    A few threads on the Recent and the New Posts Forums show a checkmark in a black circle just left of the Replies column. What does this symbol mean? I can't find an explanation anywhere on POA.

    Thanks in advance, and (is it too early to say this?) Happy New Year and Happy, Safe Flying to all of POA!

    It means it's a watched thread. Either because you explicitly clicked "Watch Thread" on it or you set the "automatically watch threads I reply to" in the account preferences.

    And if you hover your mouse over it, a tooltip pops up saying, "watched".

    It means if you happen to click on that thread, you are now on the NSA watch list.
