Icon change

Does anybody see the value in altering a couple of the icons?
Particularly I find it hard to distinguish the Sticky icon from the rest, perhaps it could be changed for a map-pin type icon, or perhaps the pin/star/whaterver it is could be recoloured to make it a little clearer?
The ones used in the PUG Theme are good examples of clearer icons.

I quite liked the padlock for the locked topic indictator too out of preferance.

Re: Icon change

Yes James the PUG ones are much better at least for me who suffers from colour blindness and cannot distinguish between the very small ‘star’ and the ‘!’ icon.

Re: Icon change

If you are going to make a change can you make the colours brighter so it will be more obvious when a forum has new posts

Re: Icon change

Yeah I agree they all look a bit too similar and their meanings are not immediately obvious to me.
Also many of the my_* variant icons (used for topics in which you have posted) have not been changed from the default which is quite confusing.
For example:
- sticky topic
- sticky topic in which i have posted
