What's up with the symbol only buttons beneath my threads? Am I excepted to freaking decipher your website functions from a few damned pixels? HELL NO! I can read perfectly well god dammit! JUST GIVE ME THE TEXT!

I'm sorry about the language,I really am, but seriously, please, don't make functions un-decipherable at a glance. Interpretations of icons are subjective. Written language is objective, please use a objective language to communicate your intention! It's the freaking basis of culture! How hard can it be?!? Are you ancient Egyptians or something, huh?

DO NOT USE FREAKING HIEROGLYPHS!

Again sorry for the language, I'm merely trying to convey my feelings about the matter.

The language is absolutely unnecessary. You can perfectly articulate yourself without it. Consider this next time, as it just appears to us as a post that should be locked.

On your actual concern. Is there any in particular which aren't obvious? All icons are fairly well established symbolisms. To replace them all with just text would take up far to much space. Not to mention that you can hover over them and get text. The symbols are also not our specific doing, they are standard the the forum software.

.. I also wonder what you do with literally everything in life. Symbols are used everywhere.

Its totally unnecessary to express youself with language like that to make a point.
If you want to learn more about discourse, you can allways checkout https://meta.discourse.org.
But i think that the symbols underneath a post are pretty straight forward.
and if you move your mouse over it, you will get a discription of what they are.
