You could also use them to let the user indicate if he has a problem or that the problem is solved... that way you dont net to set [problem] etc before you posttitle

I don't like the icons.

Most threads don't have them, so you get a nearly empty column down the page that just takes up space. I think they need an option to be removed.

You can also use the permissions system to decide who can use them.

Very nice! This sort of gives them a purpose, in my eyes, but still not enough to merit having me use them. Thanks all!

Heh, don't forget that you can change the icons. So, as someone previously has said, you could allow your moderators to set icons, and limit the icon set to a cross and a tick mark to show which topics in a help forum are open and which have been solved respectively. A similar system could apply in a development forum to show which topics contain bugs which are open and which have been solved.

Lol, that's why I mentioned that your post about them being permissions-based was helpful, and why I see some use to them.

Our board really needs the topic icons.

They would help our large board very much.

Thanks for including them, and making them changable.

I'm really getting excited about the 3.0 release.

Thanks for ALL you do Developers.... :D
