Thread icons instead of avatars

Following my last thread im checking with the demo site the features I currently use, and having a custom thread icon is the only one missing right now.

Is there any way (preferably free) to change the avatar to a custom icon chosen when the thread is created?

We use it to filter some information:


I know we can use tags here but the extra visual feedback would be nice, and the avatar doesn't seem a usefull feature anyway.

Thank you for the help.

I even created a little add-on which turns the mini-me avatar into a search link, to show your posts in the thread.
Side note having the avatar and mini avatars is one of my favorite features on XenForo, I love easily distinguishing my posts and the posts I've posted :D
Didn't thought about it that way. Maybe mixing both and letting the small one stay and chenge the big one for the icon?

Anyway, it's not a limiting factor to our purchase. If it Brogan says it wouldnt be hard to develop, I will experiment with it to see where I can get to. :)
