On quick glance they looked like they had a chunk taken off the top left, but on closer inspection they do look like stickers, nicely done! I approve!

Like your other ones too, even though I use Prosilver 8-)

Added Cuban-Pete's read/unread and sticky icons to Subsilver2.
Added Cuban-Pete's read/unread and site-icon.png to Prosilver.

They seem too big for prosilver theme. I think they need to be 27x27 or the theme alignment/spacing needs fixing.

He should crop the blank space off either side of the graphic. CSS (in ProSilver) or HTML (in SubSilver2) will then position it.

The "G"-icon has the same specs as the original image. The original image was made for subsilver and not the old blue one.

Anyway, I have chopped off unneeded empty space.

Using Prosilver here and agree with Sektor's comments.

I noticed the GTAMP logo is new, but on Prosilver the red bit on the "MP" doesn't seem to fit in well with the blue background. Also, mousing over "Grand Theft Auto Media Press" (which is a bit hard to see on Prosilver dark blue text on slightly lighter blue background anyway) comes up with some nasty red hyperlink underline and changes the text to red as well!

"Grand Theft Auto Media Press" is no longer a hyperlink on Prosilver (actually fixed this a few days ago). GTAMP.com is still a link.

http://gtamp.com/forum/styles/prosilver ... m_read.gif is only 27x27, so any Prosilver replacement icon will need to be close to the same size.

I just realised that this icon can also be used for the GameHunter icon or perhaps the replay files or?

ProSilver adds the images as a CSS background image. So there's no physical restriction on its size; any excess just runs underneath the text or gets clipped at the edges of the row.

It looks like the "Grand Theft Auto Media Press" is a hyperlink again on ProSilver.

The attachment icon is freaking ugly, so I ripped one of the internet and coloured it blue.
Much better!

I wanted to do a more GTA2 themed attachment icon, but I all I came up with is this cheesy briefcase... which does a bit too busy on the forum, I think.

Briefcase as a themed icon for attachments is a brilliant idea!
