the animated plus/minus icon
So I've seen this animated gif icon on many, many websites. It seems to always be related to comments or feedback. My questions are:
1. What is the common name for it?
2. Who created it?

I would like to use this image on my own website, but I need to figure out if I can get permission to do so.

  • Editing the question to include something like "I would like to use this image on my own website, but I need to figure out if I can get permission to do so" would satisfy the on-topic requirements for this site. Oct 7, 2013 at 16:27
  • I love that the attention on this question is its format, not its answer. Thanks for the help though @StephenOstermiller.

  • Your best bet would be to attempt to replicate it with your own design. Oct 7, 2013 at 17:36

To answer #2 - I believe it was originally created by OpionLab, which is an enterprise-class feedback management service. You'd have to subscribe to their service to get permission to use it.

  • Hi Dale. You guys must be really, really busy tracking down all the poor slobs using that comment icon and demanding royalties.
