These sorts of questions go in the Website Questions and Suggestions where its been moved to.

And this has been mentioned many of times in this forum, just hasn't been updated on the icon description page yet.

I am sorry for my bad forum choose.
Thank you for icon updating.
I still have a question. Everyone have to make a post to start a thread, but only I have post icon when I start a thread. The question is the same. why?

So, the icon is not right explained, because it should say: Thread you have started, no where you have post. I have posted in subjets not started by me and the symbol is not the same of subjet I started....
I think I have all clear, thanks
