I read through the Hot Network Questions list quite often and it's definitely a great feature for me, but I find it getting more and more difficult to use.
Increasingly, different sites are getting their own icons which are usually very abstract. Where previously, the English Language Learners Stack Exchange had a fairly intuitive speech bubble with an "ELL" it now has an abstract ribbony thing instead. Looking at the HNQ list right now I can't see any icons that are particularly intuitive.
Is there a way to use the older letter-based icons for all questions on the HNQ lists instead of the new ones?
