All the other sites I have bookmarked have little icons, so I can just have the icon on the toolbar and get rid of the text (saving space). However, QOL doesnt' have one, thereby forcing me to take up extra space with the letters 'QOL'. Is it in any way possible for QOL to get a little icon?

It would be extremely easy for me to create a favicon.ico file (the file you're talking about) however as I no longer have access to upload it to the main directory of the site, it would be useless, so as it stands at the moment the answer's no I'm afraid.

Though it wouldn't work on boring old Internet Explorer (as far as I know), you can set the favicon in the page header for FF... I'd appreciate that if you or someone else can edit the template files. If not, I'll just associate Queen with a sheet of paper.

Hardly, a favicon.ico file has to be 16 x 16 pixels and have no more than 16 colours in it... ;)

How do you manage it without text? I have tried to have just the icon but it won't let me, so I need to put text next to the icon. Could be that we are using different broswers, I am using IE.

I'm using Google Chrome, I just edit the bookmark and delete the name and the icon stays there.
