Curiosity Question Re Karl's Forums Website Icon
JackInCT - 14-10-2017 at 14:17

I've been a long term user of the Dashlane Password Manager program.

Among its list of my websites that I have stored the usual login stuff, is a listing for Karls Forums.

The embedded image file show what it's 'dialog window' is for only Karls Forums, i. e., none of the others in the list. Its a pretty small screen capture image and you may have to click on it to zoom it out as to what I'm referring to.

The website image icon inside the square box has the characters "K D", i. e., that's all there is; most of my other ones have little pictures in their 'square box', typically their corporate logos.

My questions are, (1) is the "D" in "K D" a typo, (2) does the embedded image represent Karls Forums 'official' logo, (3) is the content of the image icon actually something that, as a for instance, been created by, oh say, the forums webmaster; if NOT, who came up with it, (4) IF not created by anyone in an official capacity associated with this forum, do you think that someone at Dashlane took it upon themselves to create one, (5) it's not a very striking/eye catching work of art as insignificant as a website icon may be; so do you think that somehow, someway a more attractive icon 'logo' could be had, to include throwing out a request for a new one to the posters on this board to test out their creative juices.

Karl Davis started this board. His wife Dreamweaver keeps paying for it in memory of him.

As an aside, it seems that with Firefox, SeaMonkey and Chrome, you can change those icons, for your own, if you have the need.

Looks like they only work for bookmarks, though, not tabs.

Not that I ever see the icons, myself, unless I happen to have a zillion tabs open.
