given the need to improve performance & maintainability we should really look at including some sort of icon-font to replace most if not all of the iconic images that we use throughout the forums.
Their are really two global categories of icons
- Those currently beside all the links
We need a widely used, open, well established, vast set of icons at our disposal. I am suggesting that we use Font-Awsome as
- GPL compatible.
- Good support community to leverage requests for addition of new icons.
- Widely Used
- CDN availability
- 439 Icons and counting
- Screen Reader Compatible
- Lots of additional utilities that other icons fonts do not offer

*Note as of right now their is no icons for ICQ or AIM but they have issues created for both of them to be included all we need to do is up vote them
