These message icons are not a novelty anymore (after the first half-an-hour that you see them). They are just annoying to the eye, and you have to look twice to sort through the list of new/old messages.

A funny icon might draw attention to a special message, but if EVERY message has one, then you just ignore them, so there is no use for them!
 
Yes, please - do get rid of them....

I agree, nix the icons!!!!!!!!!!!

I like the old lite bulb, now you don't know if there has been an update or not and you have lots more scrolling to do.
 
AMEN
Bob Ah hell I'm used to them now.

I like them. Some were even designed by Spark. I'd like him to point out which ones. I think he even won a design contest. Give it more time. There are other forums that have these and none of their members complained about them.

May I suggest the option of no icon. If this was set as a default then we would not have the clutter but they would still be there if the author thought it necessary

They are either on, or off, nothing in between, sorry.

I really dislike them. They dont really serve any purpose and make the forums look cluttered.

Fully agree, I dislike them greatly.
My vote is turn them off. Just in case anyone is counting.
 
This is a good topic for a survey! Damn, should have thought of that earlier.
