    You may have noticed that there are now stars in the prefix of some thread titles. What do they do? What do they mean?! Well, calm down, I am here to tell you.

    They look like this:

    They are basically to say that the project has been entered into either our Mod of the Month competition or our Modding Update competition.

    Any thread which has a star is a contender - Simple!

    Why have we done this? Well, one, it helps us to see who has been entered into the competition already and two, it means by clicking on the prefix you can see ALL of the entries that have been entered in the past months with a single click of a button, pretty awesome huh?

    It is only bit-tech staff and forum admin/mods that can apply these prefixes.

    So, that is it, have no fear, the stars are nice and they will not harm you.

    Oh this is pretty cool. Hmm, could have a silver star for when the build is entered into one of the above comps, and then a gold star if it wins?

    Is there an option to 'filter threads by stars'?

    It could be done, but I don't really want too many separate prefixes. We already have 11 in the Project Log section! :eek:

    just click the prefix and it will show you all threads with stars :)

    Can we have it so that competition/voting threads have a colour different to all others? They can get shoved down and are hard to spot, but I do like my vote :)
