What do all those icons mean?

This doesn't really belong here, but I couldn't find anywhere better - please move it Rick if appropriate!

I've often been frustrated by the apparently random and meaningless icons against each forum and topic here, and occasionally somebody else has asked about it too. I've eventually found the answer - http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... 2#p3706355

You certainly wouldn't be the first to wonder.

Most recent instance that comes to mind is this one.

They're not all terribly intuitive, are they?

Intuitive - No! (Good to see you around detroit!)

And I discover that Locked is low in the order of precedence, so Forum Games (and probably loads of others after the work Rick's put in) is full of Locked topics that don't show up as locked!
