Can I add my own OpenID provider icon to the list of Google, Yahoo, AOL and myOpenID?

I have my own OpenID server, and I would like to have an icon for it, right next to myOpenID. Is there a way to do it?

If not, could I please have it? (It would fit snuggly under Site Management/Content, I believe.)

I think the reason this was downvoted is that it doesn't make sense for SO/SF/SU. But I see you've tagged it stackexchange; maybe you meant to ask on meta.stackexchange.com instead? –  mmyers Feb 4 '10 at 15:26
Thanks a bunch. This was very mysterious to me until your comment. –  Prof. Falken Feb 4 '10 at 15:27
Need close reason "belongs on meta.stackexchange.com" to facilitate automatic migration. –  Ether Feb 4 '10 at 19:13

As it would be for you only, it wouldn't make sense to change the page.

You could however do it with GreaseMonkey. I have some JS at meta.stackexchange that tweaked the login page to make to more like the current SO login (it added in a large MyOpenID login and a link to a MyOpenID affiliate). I've disabled it since we moved to Beta 6 as the email login made it less relevant.

You could copy some of that code into a GreaseMonkey script to add an arbitrary icon to the page just for you.

He is asking for it for his stackexchange site. Look at the tags. –  GEOCHET Feb 4 '10 at 15:30
That doesn't that change my answer though. He can either use the script I referenced if it is to be used by the admin of a site, or use Greasemonkey if he is just the user –  Rich Seller Feb 4 '10 at 15:34
But it is a valid request for a stackexchange site. It is another piece of the site that should be customizable. –  GEOCHET Feb 4 '10 at 15:36
I don't disagree, I asked a similar request to add MyOpenId affiliate support, and posted the linked answer as a workaround as they've declined such requests in favour of implementing email/password logins –  Rich Seller Feb 4 '10 at 15:38
Fine. Just needed to point out that I don't think a client side solution is going to help when this user wants to offer his OpenID provider to his stackexchange users. Nice of you to give him some kind of advice though, even though this is the wrong forum. –  GEOCHET Feb 4 '10 at 15:43
