Hi Folks. The second column of posts show a variety/selection of "Post Icons". Do they serve any purpose or are they just excess baggage?

I guess if you were in dire straights and really wanted to get someone's immediate attention you would use the exclamation mark icon.

Using icons helps catagorise threads and gives the reader a heads up on the nature of the content, ie happy about something, a good idea, a tip etc.

"...use the exclamation mark icon"?

instead of: "URGENT PLEASE HELP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

You're right they probably wouldn't get someone's attention any more than the usual CAPITALISED thread header, but that's what they are there for :)
