Do you mean like these?

Those are the icons for "hot" topics. They show up when a topic has had a lot of posts recently.

In this post on my forum, you can see some animated icons I made...... http://78sentai.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=174

They're really all the same be they the stock prosilver or any other....They're animated .gif's which are not that hard to make. You simply make a starting picture, then alter it as though making several freeze frames. Then using a .gif animation program, it combines them all into a code, so the single picture moves....These are all the same as well :roll: :lol: :oops:

That's actually incorrect. They will show up once a topic reaches a certain amount of posts, so whether it was 5 years ago or 5 days ago, it doesn't matter. You can define how many posts a topic needs to become "hot" or popular in the ACP => Board Configuration => Post settings => "Popular topic threshold."

Ah, thanks. (I never did bother to learn when topics were considered "hot", only that it happens when a thread is posted in a lot :P ).
