Can someone please tell me what the little brown stars are for? They are right beside the number of posts to individual forum discussions. Some have them and some don't.

I was wondering about that too.  Couldn't find any info on it anywhere on the site.

I've wondered about those things .......... when you enter a forum some entries have stars - some don't.

Posts with a star are "new to you" and haven't been read by you yet.

Hey, the site did get the stars for new posts working, I just read this, went to another post & returned here and the stars were gone. Too bad my points are not working, I have not received any new ponts since Oct. 21 Cry.

That can't be.....because a couple posts that I started had stars beside them right after I posted them and the stars stayed there after people posted comments there. Also, I've read numerous posts others have started and the stars have remained there. So I'm not understanding what you mean here by those comments because they conflict with what is happening!

Carol:

This bug of the stars not being accurate is related to your posts appearing/disappearing as well.  We should've said that the stars are SUPPOSED to highlight what is new! Once the software bugs are fixed all will work correctly on the message boards.

That is the online chat with a Nestle representative, not chat amongst friends. :(
