Hello Mc Barnes,
I will try to answer your questions. The orange square with the white corner, if you click it will just take you to the last unread post, or reply in your topic. If you roll over it with the mouse you will see it says goto last unread. If you have read the topic and there are no new replies then you will not see the orange square. I am afraid I do not know what you are referring to when you say a black oval next to your topic. I am wondering if your browser is not properly rendering the proper image and replaces it with the black oval. Without a screenshot I couldn't tell you.
As for the suitcases. There is a key, or legend explaining the different suitcase icons and what they mean. They are found inside each individual forums main page. If you click on the General Chat link on the main forum page inside there at the bottom of the page you will find this legend.

Also, don't forget to check out the Tutorials
There is a lot of very useful information there.
OH!! Maybe the little black oval is the paper clip, which indicates that an attachment is present in the topic. I bet that is what it is.

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.
