Q: WHat does the red Maple leaf symbol mean?

I've been reading the Answers forum for a while now, and although I understand what the thumb-up and thumb-down symbols mean, some posts also have a red maple leaf in the corner, with a number inside it.

 

What does that mean?

 

The forum search engine failed to enlighten me...

I always thought the maple leaf stood as a symbol of lesser quality and bad animation.

 

Oh...  You mean on the board.  Never mind, eh.  :)

I always thought it was the canadian flower thing and they just used it to show negative and positive. -1 would be considered red maple leaf. +1 would be considered green maple leaf.

At first I thought it was identifying Canadian members. The Red Maple Leaf being their symbol and flag of course. 

          It just seems to be a decorative icon. (or is it?) Maybe its saying "this post is TOO Canadian!".

If you get too many red maple leaves, Adminanswers sends some hockey players to your apartment to mess you up.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
