    Where can I find a guide to the meaning of the various symbols used in the Forum? For instance, what do the different kinds of envelopes that precede the thread titles mean?

    Hmmm, we should have a user manual that includes such stuff. It would be handy...

    Coincidence. I was asked about their meaning few days ago and Kurdt told me where to find them.

    There is another icon not in this list. It is a combination of the "No new posts" version of "more than 50 replies or 500 views", and "You have posted in this thread". I think the picture in "You have posted in this thread" is an actual picture of me wearing a blue pullover, but I can't be sure. It is anatomically correct, but not politically.
