Bots and Links

Re: icons?

There are several icons in the system but the only ones that mean anything are the "?" the heart, and the lock. Thanksforallthefish is right that "?" means advice is welcome and the heart means no advice in that thread. The lock means that the thread has been locked, and that can only be put in plac...
