It kind of annoys me that this site does not have one of those neat little icons that can be displayed next to the name of the site if you save it as a bookmark and what not.

All of the other websites on my bookmark toolbar have icons next to them (the actual name of the particular icons escapes me) and make the bar look much better, and the site much more professional.

Any computer-savvy climbers out there should try there hand at designing those little icons (they look to be only about 20x20 pixels) and sending them to the website admin for inclusion in the site's identity information. Good idea??

Haha it really does! Just makes my browser look a little worse than it could. Granted, I'm sure this is my OCD speaking but why not make an easy improvement to the site? A simple image would bring a much more professional look to an otherwise great site, so why not do it??

How about this, when I get some free time on my hands I'll make a couple different images to choose from and make a poll. Whichever image wins the poll I could throw it to a webmaster to add to the identity information. Yay or Nay??

Favicons
I am no good at graphic design, but I have attached an example.
If anyone else wants to play around with making one, but isn't sure which software to use, this site makes it easy (just start with a square image): http://www.html-kit.com/favicon/
