I was just wondering... Does anyone know what the different coloured note things at the side of each topic means? Sorry if it's obvious :oops:
Some of them are pink and still and some are white and shaking. :?:

Full explanation is at the bottom of the page. Its all to do with number of posts and wether or not theres new posts.
Red means its a low post number . white and shaking is more posts and its a hot topic. Orange /peach means theres new posts there :D

It's English, like mine. Actually, it's Anglo Saxon. :wink:

Mine = "Wyrd bið ful aræd" ("Fate remains wholly inexorable")

Pip's = "Gæð a wyrd swa hio scel!" ("Fate goes ever as she shall!").

Wyrd means Fate and that is significant to Wyrd Sisters as, in Norse mythology, the Fate (or Norns) are three women who weave the fate of men. :wink:

Its from Beowulf and basically means 'fate goes wherever she shall'
Thought Tony's was cool so went for something similar. Plus it had been years since i'd read Beowulf so it was nice to catch up :D
