Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I'm a member of a number of Stack Exchange sites, including some beta sites, such as English or Photography. As a shortcut to visit these pages, I often visit the 'accounts' (Related Accounts) tab on my profile, to get to other Stack Exchange sites. However, I'm part of 3 different beta sites, but I can't tell the different beta site boxes apart. The three beta boxes have the same icon, whereas Stack Overflow, Super User, and Server Fault have their own icons, so I can tell which site I want to visit. I have to guess what site, OR remember my rep score, which is hard for beta sites, because I'm not that involved yet, so they have similar scores.

The point: can we work on the Beta icons? perhaps add a name to the beta boxes until they leave beta and receive their own icons?

We now do custom sketchy letter icons for each site, like so:

You can simply mouse over the gravatar to see the site in a tooltip.

As for the rest, see the duplicate question:
Please don't share the [B] favicon for all SE 2.0 sites

I'm on a mobile browser a lot and can't see tooltips. I don't think they should be relied upon. Not the end of the world by any means though. – colithium Aug 16 '10 at 6:02
