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?

    $\begingroup$ 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) $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak Jul 5 '14 at 19:15

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.

The number of users who added the question to its favorite's is shown below the star.

  • $\begingroup$ @MPW Yes. Plus deleted questions will not be deleted from your favorite question's list, (unless you 'unfavourite' them). $\endgroup$ – Git Gud Jul 5 '14 at 17:36

    $\begingroup$ To see deleted questions on the list of favorites, @MPW would need 10K rep. $\endgroup$ – user147263 Jul 5 '14 at 17:55
