These goofy little doodads!

Gawd, it looks like an arts and crafts fair in here with all these kitchen magnets!

These are just too cute. How about some knife icons, instead?

Love and kisses on the new software!

I don't mind the ones on the individual posts, but I think I'll avoid the rush and start hating the ones on the topics right away. For most forums, they don't add much information. And they do add clutter.

Can they be selectively disabled? They'd be great for Good, Bad, and Ugly, for example....
If you don't like them, don't use 'em, right?

Insert witty quip here
The extra column, whether it has the default
icon or one of the others, makes the topics page cluttered, without adding any cognitive value.
Maybe we can make some custom ones later. For now it is just a feature of the software and Spark and I have no real control over them.

So for now I agree they do detract a bit but as we get used to them the newness will go away.

Do it! Do it right! Do it right NOW!

They also attract attention and now I have to be more careful when I read BF at work!!!
