Icons on this site

Is there some place where we can look up the meaning for the Icons used in this forum? For example:

Yeah a FAQ entry with a key probably would be pretty good. Not sure if that is something Scott can add or if that section is just locked into whatever comes with phpBB. But I think I've worked out what the icons are that you questioned:

  • The first is a sticky topic (see description here)
  • The second is a topic where you have posted a reply
  • The third is a topic with more than one page
  • The fourth is a topic with one page

Any items with a red outline are new since your last visit to the forum and once you are in a topic, there are little document icons next to each posting. Orange for "new" postings and white for "read" or "older" postings. You can click an orange icon to change it to white after you have read a posting if you wish to manually do that.

And "icon" Mike Yenco (not to be confused with "iron" Mike Ditka) once intimated that we may at some time have new ones that are a bit more intuitive. Might be a good idea to wait for those before updating the FAQ.
