I'm sorry for my delay responding. You can certainly customize these icons.
To do this you'll need to ensure your logged in as an administrator and visit the Admin CP.
On the left within the Admin CP expand the Skins & Wrappers panel. Click Manage Skins.
Locate the drop down list to the far right of your active skin and select the Edit Skin Message Icons option.
Here you can edit existing message icons or add new icons.
I hope this helps. If we can assist further please don't hesitat to respond. UPDATE:
The icons referred to in this post has since been removed in favor of Topic Types within newer versions of InstantForum. For this reason this topic will be closed.
