Setting to display icon of your distros in LQ panel ;)


Hello!
I would like to add/display icons of OS distro's that I use and have mentioned in my LQ profile. I have seen that it's showing for many other members, but not in my LQ panel. Perhaps I don't know how to set it. Could anyone help?
See attached screenshot.

Have you seen this thread (there are more here at LQ): [SOLVED] fedora icon not visible in my posts....

This isn't distro specific, but a setting in your browser.

I had, but none of them were helpful. I am using IE9 on Win7. Firefox is also installed, but I don't generally use it.
However is there any settings in IE9? And do I need to make any changes in LQ profile settings?

The icon in the user-panel is solely based on the user-agent string of your browser. If you use IE then I would not recommend to change it to something different, since there may be sites that may be delivering workarounds for that browser, but not if you change the UA string.
The simple solution to get the icon of your distribution would be to actually use that distribution to visit LQ.
