Pardon me if this has been answered, but what do the little icons to the left of the thread titles mean, and who creates them, and why? Not the ones explained at the bottom, the second one.

I think it's the thread's post icon. At least in the editor I use (Intermediate?) there is a radio button selection for Post Icons below the edit window, which icon appears at the beginning of the post's subject line.

:D in this case.

If the post is the first of the thread, this icon gets displayed in that second column, defaulting to the piece of paper.

Hope that's right, and/or helps.

Thanks. I wonder why people choose the icons they do...

People generally do it to sum up a mood of a post
