Hello my friend,how are you...
New Forum Icons? Really? They're All Grey.

Several issues at play here.
(1) - performance: the new icons use "CSS Sprites" for far-fewer HTTP calls on pages like Recent Posts and the Board Home. As much as 30% of our traffic is now from mobile users, and we're beginning to be cognizant of total bandwidth and http calls.
(2) - file size: color means big files... at least when migrating to CSS Sprites. The new design focuses much more on distinct shapes that are hopefully recognizable, and the larger icon sizes will help in recognition.
(3) - design: these are actually (not the right color-scheme yet) the new logos that have been created to compliment the new HTML5/mobile-ready site under development. So, hopefully, this and other incremental changes will help the new site "feel" familiar once it launches.
