Hi all.
As for symbols, I also prefer heart or plus. The ankh is not
appropriate (it's not "invincibility"!) and hard to understand (much
more cultural than the heart symbol). The smiley is completely

I'm not yet convinced of the yellow thing. It too much reminds me of
chat/IM smileys.

So I'm not entirely happy with any of them:
- they stand out too much; most items "blend" into the landshape, they
look like something on a different layer.
- the yellow is too strong
- the yellow _marble_ looks like something you can bump into and push
away (i.e. other actor)
- the heart symbol is more of a "love" symbol, the "plus" is to generic.

What I'd suggest:
- use a heart symbol with "+1" printed on it. That somewhat suggests
that it is something you collect but might lose.
- make it look more like something lying on the floor.

Something like this:
Maybe a bit more plastic, I couldn't get the filter to work the way I wanted.

But I don't remember all of the discussion, maybe we had already
talked about it not bearing a number like this +1 or not being red...

best regards,
Erich Schubert
