    I think what he meant is pinned favicons through start screen and taskbar

    Yep.

    I thought I'd have another look at this and I seem to have cracked it

    If you pin the site now it shows the site logo on the metro screen.

    Why is this sites pinned icon/color a plain jane?

    I don't really NEED an answer, I was just curious about what comes into play in determining those parameters.
    I've done a few tests tonight and the tile color is determined by the dominent color in a sites favicon.

    It worked like a 'charm' :)

    You have achieved a nice royal blue color with your site specific icon embedded within.
    No more Metro IE lower case "e". Thank you for your efforts, much appreciated.

    Yes, that light blue back ground blends well with IE, Thanks John.

    I've also sorted sevenforums.com to do the same (nice red color thought).

    Eh, not a fan of the orangish color. Red may be better, but blue matches the site's default color better.

    MS decide the color from the favicon so there isn't much I can do without changing that.

    Good work fixing that, I agree with Brink though, I like the blue much better

    Maybe the Seven Forums favicon needs a bit more blue
