Symbology meanings

Is there some place I can go to see meaning of the different symbologies that are next to each forum subject. I am talking about the circles with a flame in the center or a circle with lines in the center. What do the different colors of the circles mean? What is the significance of the red start on the circle? What is the difference in the black flame vs a red flame? What what does the yellow flame on the circle mean?

Is there a legend somewhere that has all the different meanings?

(copied from another thread)

Those are "Topic Icons." I thought there was a key for those, but I don't see it. @Schnoff probably lost it in one of the many, many upgrades that he's done.

The lines in the ring are test, which means it's a simple text post. It will change to a flame when it becomes hot.
The grey flame is a "hot" topic, one that has at least 25 reply comments.
The little star signifies a topic to which you have written a response.
Red icons are unread, or new.

Some have an "i", meaning that they are set as informational posts by the mods.
And obviously the lock designates posts that have been set by the mods to always appear, usually at the top of a forum.
Also, a little bar graph under the topic text shows that there's a poll.

Did I get them all?

Thanks Tom. You got them all but one. What is the little symbol at the bottom left of the circle that looks like an atomic symbol like the one in the Journey forum next to the subject -Forcing her hand.

It means the author chose that as the thread icon. When you create a new topic, you get to choose an icon, which then shows up next to that topic.
