    I just noticed the small avatar of your own userid that shows up to the bottom right of the thread owners avater on the forum list, looking like a "picture in picture" display. Is there an offical xenforo name for it, I like it better than the "dot" or whatever else was being used to signify that "you" had participated in that thread.

    It means "you've posted" in that thread. :) The dot to the right means an unread post as been made.

    Yes, I understand that, I like it, but is there a name for it? Is it the "image that shows that you've posted in a thread" feature?

    The "dot" I was referring to was the system in vB 2.0 and later that would indicate that you had replied to the thread.

    I think it's likely to be referred to forever as the "mini-me" feature.

    The poll says it all, it's called the Mini-Me feature.

    Speaking of which, was the new post icon ever resolved or has it been put on the back burner?
    Or is the blue dot staying?

    What poll? Is there a thread for discussion about this or can we discuss it here? Honestly, I like it but I wish it was a bit smaller. :)

    It was actually intentionally made bigger than its previous iteration.

    It's now officially been named, mini-me.
