On Stack Overflow the facebook, Android, and adobe tags have icons on, could we allow Icons for tags such as iTunes, App Store, Bluetooth, Mail.app, etc?

  • I'm curious what the use case for these icons would be? I personally don't like them at all, but perhaps I'm not seeing the benefit?

  • just an aesthetic. It does help in some instances such as the Adobe programs all having the Adobe icon. Dec 6, 2011 at 21:21

Tag icons are sponsored. Companies purchase the right to put their icon on a tag for a period of time. As far as I am aware this is currently only done on StackOverflow, and not on the rest of the network.
