Compared to other SE sites I've participated in, especially SO, the icon for "this comment was edited" sticks out like a sore thumb on Ask Ubuntu.

Could it be toned down?

Here's my crude attempt, alongside the original, of an orange-ish outlined pencil; I've merely erased most of the orange and then lightened it a bit:

    @roger, I agree it draws a bit more attention than needed. What do you think if the pencil icon is in orange, and the circle is just a 1px outline? – Jin Oct 18 '10 at 7:53
  • @Jin: That works for me! – Roger Pate Oct 18 '10 at 17:08
  • I agree. It could have a little transparency, to keep the color. – lovinglinux Oct 20 '10 at 15:43
  • @roger, a quick update: i still intend to change this, just been swamped lately. – Jin Oct 29 '10 at 16:59
  • @Jin: Thanks for the update; no rush as long I as know it's been seen. :) – Roger Pate Oct 29 '10 at 17:04
