We have a favicon now…

Published by at 9:29 am under Art,Navel-Gazing,Superhero Nation

Now we have a tiny favicon to help you keep track of which browser tab belongs to Superhero Nation. Favicons are only 16 pixels by 16 pixels, so they’re very hard to read. Here’s the 64 by 64 version.


I was mulling over a few alternatives, but they were fairly uninspired or unworkable: a book, a cape, something with a pen, etc. I’ll let you know if this significantly affects user-retention rates.

What do you think?

    A long time ago I was going to ask why you guys didn’t have one of these. But now you do. Problem solved.

    I think red when I think of SN, but that’s just me.

    Red for the background color? Or red for the letters?

    I experimented with a few different background colors. What do you think about these?

    I don’t like the yellow ones. The darker green looks quite nice, I think, but doesn’t really suit the site’s colour scheme.

    I would go for the middle red. I think the darker one is a bit too purple.

    Am I the only one that likes light blue? Aww…

    I’m very fond of light blue, but my impression is that it doesn’t complement the white as well as some of the darker colors. I suppose I could overcome that (to some extent, anyway) by strengthening the shadow.

    I like the middle red.

    Hmmm … I think I would go with the middle red as well. I have the site bookmarked (had it bookmarked the day I first discovered it:) and the blue …. either it’s too light or it’s not the right color. Or the font? I don’t know–something reminds me of cartoon network or something, when I look at it.

    Light blue is my favourite, but I don’t like the yellows.

    The blue reminds me of Cartoon Network, too.

    I like the top red.
