60x60px for iOS homepage bookmark

Hi Huw. I gather you have some control over bricksetforum.com. I've saved the forums as a bookmark on my iPhone home screen, however there's only a screengrab as an icon which doesn't look too nice.

I've made a 60x60px png file from the brickset logo if you'd like to put it into the root as per this webpage:
http://www.hanselman.com/blog/MakeYourWebsiteMobileAndIPhoneFriendlyAddHomeScreenIPhoneIconsAndAdjustTheViewPort.aspx

I'm not a developer, so I can't confirm this works, but if it does, it'd be awesome to have a proper icon for us iOS users.

Cheers!

    This article seems a bit more descriptive:
    http://gigaom.com/apple/how-to-create-ios-device-home-screen-icons-for-web-sites/

    Let me know if you'd like me to create any/all of the files listed for Brickset.

    @Huw is out of town at the moment and he'll be able to answer definitively when he returns, but bricksetforum is hosted by VanillaForums so my suspicion is that we don't have the ability to introduce the icon ourselves. It might be possible to request VanillaForums to do this, however.

    The icons are in place for both the main site and the forum and on my iPad they work just fine.

    The icon for the main site works on my iPhone 4, but the one for the forum does not. Both work correctly on my iPad.

    Odd, they are both the same icon, as you'll see by inspecting the head section of the page sources
