So this is an update, so It works with 1.6 and you can uninstall it from the ACP?

Care to give us any more information?
Also, I dont mean to be picky, but is this version of Ficons 2.2 or 3.0.
The plugin files state 2.2 but the thread says 3.0 :/

I am happy to see upgraded plugins especially this one. I will give it a try, the previous version wasn't working fine with my theme2 I have installed on my forumscanada.com, even after going through the installation steps... But before I reinstall, please:
1. If someone could take a look, I may have some problem, in a regular thread I can see an extra column compared to this forum, did I change something and I forgot to change it back? This may impact the plugin if I reinstall it... I will attach a snapshot.
2. I noticed on digitalpoint and namepros, they have avatars showing for threads which look good, could we do this with ficons, maybe in that highlighted spot shown in my attachment?
Thank you

That should be the column for thread icons.

You can see the smiley face there in one. Try to install Ficons, it should work out right.

1. You likely have a colspan issue. You'll need to check the troubleshooting section and alter the appropriate colspan.

2. You should be able to change a template to use the $forum['ficon'] for an image. Just would require some alterations to a template
