In the row of icons on the right hand side, on the second row, second from the left. That one looks like the character is peeing towards the one to the right of him.

It's kind of unfortunate. :\

I totally don't see it... hmm.  Well, normally these won't be shown in context like that.

EDIT: Anyway, we'll take a look at changing it.  Thanks for the catch. :)

I didn't see it at first, but now I can't see any other way!

Worst part is, I didn't see that... but the one up and to the right of it immediately made me think, "That's kinda phallic..."

I don't know if this speaks worse of those creating the icons, or those viewing them...

That one we went through a number of edits on to avoid that, actually.

To be quite honest, all of this... 'this looks like this...' feels like it is sort of reaching... i mean, give me a break, I would even go so far as to say that they are trolling, it makes me mad, but well... some people just 'see' stuff.  So i won't yell at anyone, but i still feel like it is all 'really way out there'. It's almost like you can't make anything without someone making it out to be something dirty, or they don't like it... or whatever.

I better shut up before i get madder, it just seems like, 'too much'
Anyway, everyone have a pleasant evening and enjoy, i am looking forward to TLF, icons and all!   :)

I think the folks here are honestly trying to help us avoid problems from future trolls, so I appreciate it.  I really don't feel like anyone here has ill intent, though it is frustrating when people do find stuff like that, but it's not their fault. :)

I think this is much ado about nothing. At least it's not next to the purple or green alien icon, right?  :D

Yeah, after posting here for quite a while and going through two alpha tests, I didn't randomly decide to start trolling. :)

It could be a local thing. In this area, decals on trucks that look similar to that are pretty popular, except they have some company logo next to them that the person doesn't like. So it's the first thing I saw when I looked at it. In another area it could be totally different.

But it's what I saw when I looked at it, and I felt it was worth pointing out because if other people saw the same thing only while doing a review, it would be suboptimal.

The "phallus" is really so different from the expected shape, and generally geometric in nature, that I wouldn't worry about it.

I can't unsee the peeing alien, though  :-X

I don't think you're trolling at all. In fact, I agree with you, and I told Chris so privately yesterday after you posted about it. So, all good! :)

That alien is much less penisy.

I suspect that's the last time I will say that phrase in my lifetime.
