Wondering what you all think of this idea...have been coveting a little icon next to our forum for awhile now like a lot of the other forums have. Thinking I'll send a little Sherlock Holmes type .gif to the powers that be and see if we can use it...or does anyone know if there is another procedure to get this done? What do you think?

Trying to add a photo to this text and can't figure out how to do it...so adding it to my signature line instead. I have signatures blocked so will have to unblock to see if it's working. LOL

Yes!  A little Sherlock-y thing or maybe even a magnifying glass.  SOMETHING.  We are a very busy forum and I'm starting to feel like a red-headed stepchild. :(

I have been looking for a magnifying glass with an eye, but so far haven't found any good ones that aren't copyright protected. Will try to do some more searching tonight when I get home...although my Kindle Fire is supposed to arrive today so I may be a little 'busy.' LOL

I like the Sherlock--and I think it's a great idea. Be sure to let us know what you think of the Fire as well!

I sent in a query via the 'contact us' about what is needed to get it added. I like Sherlock too and just wasn't having any luck finding something else. At least we will be noticeable and not just another paltry forum. LOL

 Cheryl --- I think the Sherlock figure is really wonderful.  Hope you get positive news from whomever makes such decisions.  Also, good for you to get a Kindle Fire --- I am still an electronic reader holdout!!!

They wrote back and I sent them Holmes...they said it would be added 'when they had time to add forum icons.' So who knows how long that will be--not high priority I'm sure, but hopefully won't be too long.

So far I am loving my Kindle Fire!

Cheryl, did you ever hear anything else on this? Do you think they forgot?

I have not heard anything from them, and obviously the icon isn't there so they haven't done it...I reckon it's not a priority. :(
