XF 1.2 Avatar key icon


Active member
I've created a brand new usergroup today and the only thing I did different, is a custom banner for that specific group. I've noticed everytime I log with any of the users from that group, a small key icon appears near the username.

Can anyone tell me what's that? :)

What do you mean by "everytime I log with any of the users from that group"?

Can you post a screenshot of the key icon?


Active member
sure, this is the key icon thing:


here is the normal look for all other users, including the admin (myself)

Another admin updated the avatars for tha specific group without telling me and while the avatar itself doesn't look anything like a key, the very small version does...thus the retarded confusion. I really thought it has something to do with permissions :)
