What does this icon/button mean? I've never seen it before.

It means: "the butter has slid off your toast and almost entirely off the plate."

I would guess that it has something to do with the Mainline Campaign Development thread on the very top of the page
99 little bugs in the code, 99 little bugs
take one down, patch it around
-2,147,483,648 little bugs in the code

The image is called "forum_unread_subforum.gif". That board has unread messages and has a subboard (like a subdirectory, so it contains a link to another board with messages). The unread messages can be in either the board itself or in the subboard. The "Scenario & Campaign Development" board has "Mainline Campaign Development" as a subboard; kind of like a symbolic link, because the subboard is also a board by itself.

Thanks, guys. I'm glad Major got a real answer to his question too.
