Re: Thread Icons

well the 2012 switch was a completely new software (the old software had been selected by our former partners at vwvortex.com, but it hadn't been supported in like 6 years). this time around it's just an upgrade from phpBB 3.0 to phpBB 3.1, so most things won't change too much!

Reporting is the right way to do it. I'll take a look at the two reported posts and see if I can sticky them, it's unfortunately not a simple process because of the way that gconverter migrated the posts and inserted a bunch of invalid code into the posts.
