on my browser, IE where you woudl type in www.whatever.com (http://www.whatever.com) there is a little image to the left of it in front of the HTTP. Most sites when you visit them have those!

Tim,
Your talking about the favicon.ico (favorites icon) right.

Right. The first time I added Yesfans to my favorites list I had that logo for about a day, then it went away and was replaced by the little 'e' for Internet Explorer.

I just deleted it a minute ago, and added it again and yep there it is.

The reason that your "favicons" disappear is that they are stored in temp internet files. You can save them and point your favorites to that icon and the'll stay in your favorites list. Just add "/favicon.ico" to any address.

We need our own, not the IE icon. Lets see some little "YF" things!

I nominate relayerjim to be an official consultant to Yesfans.com

Who seconds the motion?

No disrespect to you Mr.ZuLu!!!

Actually I re-nominate a team RelayerJim & Mr.ZuLu

For the same reasons that no mod can be here 24/7 nor can our creative team be expected to be.

No disrespect to those that have already posted ideas - they look really cool! - but maybe you could take the Y and F from the banner logo and use those in this one. That way you're keeping it familiar with the other graphics on the site. Just my two cents... :D

Favicon’s are difficult to make because they end up being 16x16.
That’s a tiny image so too much detail tends to get lost.
You want to keep it as simple as possible.
To get an idea what the ones we created really look like at 16x16
save the image and convert it to an “.ico” and use it in your favorites list.

I'm new to photoshop so I still got a lot to learn but it's such a cool program.
You should get it...

Of all the ones I tested this one looks the best at 16x16.

I'm a big fan of all the graphics you create.
If you have photoshop you can get the ico plugin here, it's free..

I LOVE ART!

But what are we talking about here?
An icon in an address bar that I never look at because I'm trying to pay attention to what I'm typing and reading.

You guys rock!
Details I love details!

Good idea but when it's resized to 16x16 you can't see any detail.
Try it with a white background, this might help.

This is the latest icon on my desktop, looks great without resizing.

At that size it does look great but the logo Tim is looking for is for use as a "favicon.ico".
The little icon in the address bar of the (ie)browser which is scaled down to 16x16.
Try using your icon in the drop down favorites list of your browser and you'll see what it looks like at 16x16.
