A "cloud" icon in the the panel is ambiguous: too much like weather indicators
|||The Sync Menu||
The 'cloud' icon for indicator-sync makes some internal sense, but many users have some kind of weather indicator running. These often show a cloud in the panel. That behavior makes sense, too, and is pretty established. Unfortunately, that makes this icon for indicator-sync too ambiguous. I hope that something else can be chosen.
I've seen graphics for 'the cloud', with elements representing network connections, wires or arrows or other things, with a cloud as the background. I think a cloud behind some other clear graphic would probably not be ambiguous. So I'm not arguing "there must be no puffy clouds whatsoever!" A cloud on its own, that, I'm concerned about.
