The fancy icons for the forums have been updated and there are 3 new ones:
There's the RealWorld Logo, mainly used as a general software icon if what you are speaking about is covered or found in more than one program.
There's a Bomb, which could be used to mark threads as spam, need a response quickly or just not needed and require deletion.
Then finally there's a beetle, which is used to signify a miscellaneous topic.
If you have questions or comments, just reply and we'll get back to you.

The 'must see' (exclamation point) is used for must see topics. The 'social interaction' (smileys speaking) is used for basic commenting. The 'check-mark' is used to signify a solved or complete topic and the 'star' is used for announcements.
