I updated a previously unbranded station to Shell; however, the update has taken place, but there's no Shell Icon on the mobile app of the yellow seashell. How would I change that?

"Logos are available to GB_Direct members who advertise with GasBuddy. "

Not necessarily, the majority of most popular station brands also have logos. Shell is not a GB_Direct member but we have permission to use their logo within the apps.

We usually do not incorporate logos for smaller chains/independent stores.

Steveo763, if you've made changes to a station brand, and the icon is replaced with an 'Unbranded' icon, please let us know through the website feedback area. There are back-end changes that can be made to complete the change of a station logo.

Steveo763,

Welcome to GasBuddy! Thanks for participating in the dialog. I had the identical question several months ago when the station near my home changed brands and when I added a brand new station near here. I believe it was the helpful suggestion of Gas_Buddy below who directed me to the help link. The logo was changed within several hours.

On behalf of the majority of GasBuddies who are humane to new comers, I apologize for the unkind treatment you received here.

Hang in there!

The OP was talking about the Apps, not the maps on the full site. All major brands have logos on the Apps.

Needless brambles and thorns? Interesting. Coming from CampKohler, this made me chuckle!

While logos clutter up the maps they do make finding a specific brand easier on the maps. I rarely use the maps to find prices.

Yeah, he had it answered, but not before he was subjected to needless brambles and thorns.

"As far as the trolling you had nothing worthwhile to contribute to this discussion besides questioning whether my question was worthwhile... I'd call that trolling."

While I wouldn't call questioning the value of a suggestion (or asking for more information, or asking why/how implementing the suggestion would be useful or benefit the membership, other than a small minority) trolling, and while I personally don't care if there's a logo icon or not, I think the original post has standing.

That said, as the member making the original post seems to have his question satisfactorily answered, perhaps this topic can be closed to preclude any further (for lack of a better word) sniping.

Steveo763 - I suggest you stop engaging with this member. He will keep going, engaging in disingenuous debate, twisting and changing the topic, trying to claim that you attacked him. His schtick is well known. Ultimately he will be protected by the moderators, who do not seem to realize that their rules make this place a safe haven for trolls.

A station logo helps if you are using the maps but not on the price boards. And they take up a lot of real estate.

I asked a question. Is asking questions trolling?

A station logo helps users quickly and efficiently differentiate between stations aiding them in finding a retailer. It also helps with posting because someone can quickly find the station they wish to update since it is rare for the same brand to show up at a certain area

I don't "troll around" Steveo763. I just don't see the importance of whether or not the station logo appears.

Thanks for answering guys, I contacted the mods through the help link.
I'm still learning some things, and glad I know this for future reference. Have a good one!

You cannot change or add icons to the station; you have to request the moderators make the change/addition. Moderators can be contacted using the Help link at the top of the Gas Buddy page and simply providing the necessary information.

You can not change the brand logo it has to be done by someone from gasbuddy.com

I'm asking a question to whomever might now how to update this. Do you really have nothing better to do other than trolling around here criticizing other's questions?
So anyway, how could I change the brand logo that displays on the App?
