 some of them seem ambiguous at the first glance, specifically Merge, Move,
 or Split.

 Yes, I agree, I'm not a fan of the mock up myself either, so a few
 thoughts, thinking out loud:

 * For a standard user, they've only got a couple of icons, though in this
 case why not continue to include the text with the dashicon and hide if
 its required for small screens

 * For moderators there are 8 dashicons there, for topics, these actions
 are also displayed in the sidebar, adding the dashicons to prefix each of
 these in the sidebar could work as a "key" or sorts

 * Designing some more intuitive icons for these actions could be
 beneficial, it was quick and easy to mock this up as dashicons was already
 being used so that's what I did, researching font awesome, github octicons
