I just joined here this week and I have to say I really like BC a lot.  I'm figuring most things out pretty easily, but I have this one question.  When I click "View New Content", I've noticed that some topics have a star in the left column whereas most just have a round circular icon.  I gather that someone has deemed this topic to have more valuable information in it.  Is that right?  Who makes this determination?  I've read the forum rules and perused the Tutorials forum, but haven't come across the answers yet, so I'm posting here.  Answers anyone?  TIA.

Edit: Moved topic from Tutorials to the more appropriate forum.~ Animal

The stars represent topics that you have participated in.

 Thank you animal.  Now I don't have to strain my aging brain to remember whether I've commented on a topic.   :rolleyes:
