Until recently every link in my browser toolbar had an icon next to it, except SimAirline.net. I now use a Firefox add-on named Favicon Picker 3 to put a KLM icon next to it, but I'd love to see an official icon there.

Is it possible to put these icons on the site? I chose KLM for my link, because I use the KLM page as my official SimAirline.net point of entry. I do that, because there is no news feed on the official homepage.

The icon you are referring to is actually coded into the webpage that is being viewed. Having an official one for SimAirline isn't a bad idea at all. The only problem I can see is deciding what to use as the icon since the SimAirline logo would not scale down to that size very easily.

I know. KLM is easy, and the one I use here comes from their own web site. Putting our own wings in a 16x16 bitmap will be mighty difficult, just like the SkyTeam logo.

Maybe we can just use the globe and put something like the number 27 in the middle?

My thought was to just use the letters "SA" in the same blue used in the logo...

I brought this topic up a few years ago. Aaron said that the dimensions do not suit the SimAirline.net logo very well, and at the time the management team couldn't come up with a simple alternative to fit the square dimensions, so it was left blank.

When I was on management, we were thinking of something like Starflyer's logo:

Even though it looks cool, I didn't see how this could fit our logo, as it's not even in the same class of fonts. The problem with the logo is that it wouldn't work out well being 16 pixels wide. My current favicon for the forums is the warning triangle from the last time the internet pooped out on me while trying to visit the forums and Firefox saved it as a favicon for some reason.

The only thing I can think of is to have just the letters 'SA', although that can be confused with South African and it isn't a recognised logo for SimAirline.net.

My only other idea would be to have a tail (like at the top of the page) with the SimAirline.net globe logo in the centre. However, does the globe standing on its own represent what we stand for? I thought the logo works only if all the aspects are put together (globe, wings, slogan etc.).

As Alex mentioned, this is something we have looked at before. We could have done it for each of our VAs, but not really for our corporate logo. (But, why do it for the VAs if you don't do it for the corporate?) The curse of wide logos! Similarly, if we had a logojet, the logo would not do so well on the tail. (I personally abhor the trend of partial logos on tails, a la Delta, JAL, United, et al.).
