Forum Icon Definitions

Post by allingeneral »

What do all of these different icons mean? Here's a list. If you see another icon that you;re unsure about, please ask (reply in this thread) and I'll find it and add it to the list.

(will finish the definitions later, I promise!) :whistle:

Is there a "one-stop shop" for forum related instructions? Like a user's manual or other such thing? I was always wondering what all the icons meant, and found the answers here. But I think I might be helpful if there were a link in site navigation to a "user's manual" or similar guide. New users might find that extremely helpful.

Cheers!
