Just playing with an idea. What the topic title says isn’t technically what’s been changed, because what I’m actually doing is pushing all titles to the right. Here’s a simple before and after:
There’s ample room for it on desktop, and I feel like it makes the topic list considerably less noisy when there’s more alignment. I know it’s been argued in the past that the misalignment helps emphasise the special status (e.g. locked), and it does, but my opinion is that it’s too emphasised this way, and has a negative impact on the complete appearance of the topic list.
In the rare case of >1 icon, like with a bookmarked or solved topic that’s also closed, then sure, misalign it.
