so you know how the little red icon comes up telling you how many new emails you have, or how many updates you have(app store/cydia). It's always in the top right of the icon.

I'm making some smaller icons to go on the quicklaunch bar(or whatever you call it) and the little red # is way out of place.

How can i change the location of this little guy? and can i just change it for the email icon or is it a global setting?
