    When your name is posted in like 2 different parts of your post already I don't see the purpose of signing your posts even further.

    To answer your actual question, you'll probably have to wait for one of the masterminds of the forum change to chime in with info. It's also possible somebody has a backup of the icon database around here as well.

    It's all backed up... somewhere... I think.
    So in a perfect world, it should just be a matter of importing the stuff somehow.
    Which is now on the to-do list.

    Heh, I remember that when I first joined the "leveling system" of the forum really appealed to me.
    "Weeee! only 36 more posts until I become the next weapon!"

    Kids are retarded.

    Whereas now you're all like "Wheee! Only 268 more posts until my member becomes well-known!"

    I'm not sure how it works either, but I suspect it has to do with trophy points and such.

    I haven't researched it too thoroughly, but it makes sense.
    For example:
    Me: Active Member
    Smuel: Well-Known Member
    Ring lord: Member

    Me: 1378 posts
    Smuel: 1355 posts
    Ring lord: 733 posts

    If it were just posts count, I'd be Well-Known as well.
    But if we look at Trophy Points.

    Me: 38 TP
    Smuel: 138 TP
    Ring lord: 18 TP

    Every Well-Known that I've checks has the Nasrudin incarnate trophy.
    So basically, everyone who supported Pillars of Eternity.
    Not sure if this support was participating in Beta or donating to KickStarter.

    Well there are some junk trophies for getting a lot of likes.

    But I still think I should rename Like to Meh

    Thanks a lot! Although if anyone remembers what sources the various portraits were taken from I'm happy to go looking. I'm sure my lovely old avatar must be somewhere on the internet.

    Yes, change "like" to "meh." If my understanding of the internet is accurate, it's that voiced apathy translates directly to appreciation.

    Good idea! Change other stuff too, like "report" to "Suck it, loser!" or something.

    You seem to have developed a thing for my Mom lately.
    Were she not currently confined underground in a cement coffin storage chamber, she might be flattered.

    I thought it might be something like that.
    Though either my memory is faulty (given) or the ytzk thing happen before I moved in or during my absence, on account of I don't remember this.
    'Course I might remember, but not be aware that I remember.
    I've had far less sleep than my mind needs these last few weeks, so the mind is starting to take naps of it's own accord.

    Also, the previous reply was supposed to be black humor, but came out rather grim.
    Good thing I said confined instead of moldering as was my first intent.

    If your mother really is deceased then you have my sympathies. Please be assured that I didn't actually have sex with her last night. In fact I can say with some confidence that I have never met your mother at all. Despite this I am certain that when she was alive she was a fine woman with many good qualities, and I am sure I would have considered banging her had the opportunity arisen. Tenderly at first, then with increasing urgency as our animal instincts came to the fore, our loins mashing vigorously together, propelling flecks of sweat from both our bodies as her buttocks quivered under the onslaught of my relentless pounding, until finally we both collapsed in a panting heap, twitching with the aftershocks of our simultaneous climax.

    Again, I'm so sorry for your loss.
