What are the icons on a post for?

Across the bottom of your post you will see several icons, each of which will perform a different function on a post. You may up or downvote a post, remind the post, leave a comment, or boost the post. You may also access the edit menu by clicking the edit button near the top right corner of the post, indicated by three vertical dots, from which you may make use of more options such as edit post, share, remove pin, translate, follow/unfollow, and delete post.

I don't know if this is the right place to post this, but I have a suggestion for the interface. On the left where the 'icons' are, not all icons are immediately apparent what they do (same with the top icons.) Don't fall into the google overly simple interface crapola. Having some text underneath each icon would do wonders for beginners to this platform.

What is the pulsating red dot besides the group icon? A blue dot on the top of group icons means a new post in that group has been posted, but what does a pulsating red dot on the side mean?

It would be great to have tooltip on icons on the navigation panel. Most of the icons are self-explanatory, but some of them are not very clear. For example, it is next to impossible to know what plus symbol or a star is until you click on it. The tooltips can be implemented very easily by including "title" attribute on the HTML element containing the icon.

Can we make it so that the albums is easier to find, a caption on the menu icons when mouse hovers over them, and a feature for moving our images to an album after we post them?

The "Points" and "All" icons should be pull-down menus and not full on links. I get a notification while reading a post and want to take a peek, then lose my place.

Does anyone know how to post pictures in the comments section to other people's posts while using the Minds app on iOS?  I don't see any icons or anything that allows someone to share a photo in the comments.

Noticing that there are blue comments icon in a few posts that I remember commenting before, but when I open the comments section, there are no comments from me in there at all. If that's not the case, then it should only be blue when you commented on the post, because that's how the vote and remind icons work.

Still think mouseover text on the icons will be a good idea ;)

Icons need tooltips on them. For a new user the interface can be extremely confusing.

Hi @minds and @bugs - Seems the social icons are still not there. When going to my newsfeed and attempting to type a message as I am now here there are not social buttons. Even if I somehow manage to get them to appear when I click on facebook to test the cross posting it just takes me to what appears to be a cross post page to FB but then just stops nothing happens. So the ability to post to facebook is not working. Is anyone else having this issue or gotten the cross post function to work yet?

MOVE THE VOTE/REMIND ICONS TO WHERE THE 'PAY' ICON IS.
I'M CONSTANTLY CLICKING ON UN-INTENDED ITEMS B/C IT IS TOO CLUSTERED TOGETHER AT THE VOTE BUTTONS. SEE EACH OF THOSE ARROWS ABOVE? THOSE ARE THINGS ONE MUST AVOID TO VOTE ON A COMMENT. MOVE THOSE ICONS TO THE RIGHT-SIDE OF THE POST!!!

I am new as well! Is there a tutorial for this website? I find some of the site intuitive, but other parts are a bit unclear... Do I post, then boost my post to get subscribers? or subscribe to other feeds 1st? Also, how do I remove birth date from public view? I tried to edit my account, but seem to be missing something. (Alt tags or hover effects on the icons that provide a brief description of the icons functionality might be helpful!) Any Help is appreciated!

Yesterday and until around 6 am, I saw words instead of icons. Icons are restored. For the last hour, although I can post titles and URLs as text, no graphics appear. Asus laptop/Windows 10/constantly updated Firefox/CyberGhost Update at 14:31 EST graphics restored.

There are so many 'sorry ther was an error' messages on Firefox Android that it obscures icons and reply texts.

Just a thought but would be good to have some text showing when hovering over the left hand side icons to see what their function is. Thank you.

Minds in Mozilla, Android. There are texts instead of some icons. Sometimes it makes the page unusable (some elements are hidden because of different sizes of texts and icons).
