FWIW, it was this way in the beginning™ of prosilver, and it was changed for usability and aesthetics -- the row of "new post" icons at the end of the topic titles really didn't look so good, and was hard to follow with a mouse. Probably even harder in today's touchscreen world.

The large round icon next to it also serves the same purpose.

Can then remove the little icon?
And move tooltip "View first unread post" on large round icon
Sorry for my English.

Why do we need to remove it? Users are used to the icon, and it isn't in the way for something else really.

I had no idea such that the large round icon now has the same function as the little icon. By habit was aiming at her. If it was not, I would soon find a more convenient way.

I had no idea, too!

On some other bulletin boards, clicking the title leads to the first unread post, and I actually quite like it. You can just click [1] to go the first post. Not really sure which I prefer, though.

Why wait 3.2 for such a small change?

You see that the action is not obvious, and the functionality is duplicated. Why not fix it?

For the same reason that we didn't remove the deprecated functions in the code: transition.
It's not obvious for the user that the forum icon is a link now, they need time to deal with that.

It was implemented, and subsequently reverted, because it was too confusing IIRC ;)
