I'm trying to figure out what they all mean.

Thanks so much. I guess I wasn't really very clear about what I was asking. When you first enter a forum, there's a column on the left titled "Topic". Next to each topic is a little icon. I understand the "sticky" ones, but I'm unsure about the others. Some are like bells. Some are animated bells. Some of the bells have a black dot on them. That's what I'm confused by. I notice it gives a little information when you hover the cursor over the icon, but it's not very specific.

If the shape in the middle of the circle is green, it means that there are new unread posts in that topic. If the shape is white, it means there are no new unread posts. (This doesn't always work, though.) The black dot means that you have posted in the thread.

The topic icons, I am looking for a legend but can't find one yet.

This is the PHPbb list:

Icon Descriptions or Legend
Two general points
- Green icons are unread items, blue/grey are read, orange/brown are locked
- A dot on any topic means you have posted in it

Image announce_read_mine.gif
Image announce_unread.gif
Image announce_unread_locked.gif
Image announce_unread_locked_mine.gif
Image announce_unread_mine.gif
Image forum_link.gif
Image forum_read.gif
Image forum_read_locked.gif
Image forum_read_subforum.gif
Image forum_unread.gif
Image forum_unread_locked.gif
Image forum_unread_subforum.gif

Image icon_post_target.gif
Image icon_post_target_unread.gif
Image icon_topic_attach.gif
Image icon_topic_latest.gif

Image topic_unread.gif
Image topic_unread_hot.gif
Image topic_unread_hot_mine.gif
Image topic_unread_locked.gif

Think I got most now, with the file name mostly explaining what they do.
