What are the symbols on the side of threads?

On the left there are various symbols. (Crosshairs, bullet hole, etc...) For example a locked thread has the locked symbol...I understand that one. What do the rest of them mean.

If you "hover" your pointer over each one, it will tell you what it means.

The little circle is online status, the upside down yield sign with the exclamation point is report an inappropriate post, etc.

...And if you scroll down to the very, very bottom of the thread list in each forum, you'll find a little list of the different left-side-of-the-title icons, with explanations: No new posts, You have posted in this thread, etc. A couple of them aren't listed, like the little padlock with an arrow through it that means "You have posted in this thread, but now it's locked."

Oh, threads.

My explanation is for the symbols to the left of the individual posts.

Sucks getting old...

Those left side of title icons were the ones I couldn't figure out. Thanks folks my question is answered.
