    Cool little update for you! You will now see Gilliam as icons in the different subforums. I will probably write a small proper guide on the meaning of the different icons but it's pretty self-explanatory. I tried to make it easy to identify things.

    Firstly I need to thank forum member Melubnio for creating the original Gilliam sprites. I was planning to put this visual upgrade on the forum years ago and almost finished it up but shelved it for some reason. I added some bells and whistles to the sprite so it looks different for different things.

    So here's a quick explanation. If Gilliam is on and blinking that means there are posts in a thread that you haven't read. If Gilliam is grey and not blinking that means you've already read (or at least loaded the last page) all the posts in that thread.

    If it has a star on it that means it's a "hot thread". There are a few variables that can make the hot thread star appear. If a thread has at least a thousand views it's a hot thread. If it has at least fifteen replies it's a hot thread. Er, I'm sure there are other reasons, but I forget.

    If there's a lock on the thread, well... that means it's presently locked! (Shocker.) In the much rarer instance that the thread was recently moved to another forum (or was moved from) it will have the Leyline dragon symbol on it.

    I think that's about all you need to know. I hope you like the new look!


    Edit: While I'm here, I'm sure you already figured this out but a similar rule applies to the forum index. There are wong coins as icons next to each subforum. If the coin is coloured it has threads you haven't read in it, and if grey nothing new.

    But...he never left. I mean, he's been giving us gaming news this whole time.

    I like it! Adds some life to the otherwise static interface without breaking the OLS theme or old-school forum feel. a very fine line to walk, but walk it you did.

    You're mistaken, that's Gilliam II. This is his daddy from the XGP15A-I, just Gilliam.
