    Where's an explanation for all the forum icons?

    I see icons to the left of threads in the forum, of different kinds of envelopes. I don't know what those are. Where's the explanation for these icons? I'm not talking about icons the user entered, such as the emoticons.

    Thanks!

    The dark envelope means you've read the thread, a red one with an yellow arrow means the thread has been moved, an envelope on fire means the thread is popular (has been viewed many times), an envelope with a lock icon means the thread is closed and an envelope with a green circle and a white arrow means you've posted in the thread.

    TheRaptor has given a full explanation, but if you want the pictures along with it, then you can find it at the foot of the index page for any forum.

    You can also hover your mouse over the icon for a moment to see a tooltip explanation of what the icon is.
