I only just noticed the 3rd icon next to the acorn. What is it for?
I know. I'm really bad at seeing things that are staring me right in the face. Please don't laugh at me.

Hi Kyle,

I assume you mean the icons at the bottom right of each post?

From left to right:
- "Thumbs-up" (show you like or approve of a post, etc.)
- "Acorn" (give acorns to the post author)
- "Bookmark" (add this post to your bookmarked posts, accessible from the person icon at the very top right of the screen > Your Profile > Bookmarked pages)
- Post options (i.e. quote, edit, etc. - these vary depending on whether you are the author or not)
- "Report" (the exclamation mark - report a post - use this for spam or inappropriate posts)

No worries. No one will laugh; it's a good question. In fact, just a day or two ago on a different forum, someone asked the same question.

If you hover over each of the little icons the name will show up.

Oh cool, it took me all year to understand that! The acorn? I thought it meant that squirrels read the post! Rolling on the floor laughing
Thanks so much for the explanation.
