# Meaning of star symbol by each question?

To the left of each question there is an upvote arrow, a vote count, a downvote arrow, and a little star symbol. What is the star symbol?

• As with most things, numbers, dates on SE: Just hover with your cursor over the symbol and you will be shown a tooltip. In this case, the tooltip says: This is a favorite question (click again to undo) – Martin Sleziak Jul 5 '14 at 19:15
• @MartinSleziak: Unfortunately, one can't hover using an iPad – MPW Jul 12 '14 at 14:35

The $\Large \star$ button, when clicked on, becomes $\color{orange}{\Large \star}$, signaling that the question was added to the user's favorite question's list. You can access this list in your profile.
