I only just now figured out that the top right nav bar is... well... a nav bar. 

Of course now I've also noticed that it gets filled with "gravatar" style icons for question-rooms I'm participating in and I can fast-navigate. 

Here's the one for _this very question_:

![roomicon.png](/image?hash=f23bad3ee56e94922e34e1f534235cd5550a8c18595fac53189628a49fa0a0f2)

Sadly though, only the "room"-rooms have friendly icons and the questions are auto-generated. Would it be pragmatic to add a "custom icon" option for questions to make them more distinctive in the nav bar? 

To also head off the conversation around certain obvious compelling truths about why this might be a bad idea here's an ["LMGTFY" for free icon libs][1] (although I imagine the one with the best API would be the winner).

They already do!

If you find the right room :). I've added icons to a few — basically those I expect will get chat traffic for years rather than days/weeks:

Feel free to post suggestions for other long-lived question rooms (like this one?) as answers here — I've subscribed to this question so I should see them.

I'm not sure this is a good idea. Already the "real rooms" (top level room(s) belonging to sites) are being drowned out in the bar by the somewhat less important and transient question rooms. I would almost argue that all question rooms should just have a solid color (matching their parent site theme) with no icons at all, or that the identicon should be dimmed out or tinted or something so than the rooms with _REAL_ icons stand out more.
