Font awesome depending on the number of forums. Loading the whole of FontAwesome from the CDN will probably be better for loading than a load of png images. Yea, you could sprite them of course,but still. If the FA icon set covers all the images you want go with FontAwesome

I prefer font awesome as its easy to customize the icons since its just a text... also all icons would load at the same time, once the stylesheet is loaded rather than loading each icon individually if images are used...
