I have it enabled for admins and mods but id like to edit posts of regular users for it to appear.

In essence, it will highlight good topics of debate, but i dont want any user to be able to use the forum icons. Anyway to do this?

Then you should just be able to edit the first post in the topic and add an icon, just like we're able to do with the topic solved tick.

Double check all the the options and permissions then.

Make sure it's on in the forum management and that you have permissions to use it in the forum permissions.
