Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] Polling on Icons

The “Wireshark UI Metaphor” poll does not offer “start/stop” as an option. Even this thread uses “start and stop” and that’s still the name of the buttons.

How about a graphical poll that shows the new Start Capture and Stop Capture icon suggestions – see which they prefer?

I’ll open a poll to my mailing list with the (1) old image, (2) current 1.9.3 image, (3) green play with red stop, and (4) a plain green and red button set.

Should be interesting.  Will send –dev the poll URL in a few minutes.

I've added a quick explanatory intro text. Please let me know if it's
still unclear.
Feel free to forward to any Wireshark users you know, the bigger our
sample size (presumably) the better.
