What do the various message icons, such as the dog-eared page, question mark, etc, found in the left margin, mean? And who puts them there? The poster? If so, why? Is he/she trying to hype his/her post--like, "Hey, this is hot stuff!" or is he/she tellingl readers to avoid reading that post? I understand the emoticons, but dog-eared pages??? Please 'splain.

When someone starts a new thread, they can choose to give it an icon from among several available. If they don't specifically choose an icon, the forum software defaults to what you call "the dog-eared page." Since it comes with the forum software, I can't speak for why the software developer chose it, but I would assume it has something to do with "a well read newspaper" or something along those lines.
