OK, is anyone else seeing that weird reflecty thing going on with the usericons today?

I just added the reflect effect this weekend. I'm not yet sure if I like it.

It's not bad, but the effect would be more pronounced and interesting if the background were darker.

edit: and I can't tell if it's doing anything for my animated pic.

Oh, that's what that was. I thought it was a shadow effect. I like it :D. It's nice.

Cover up your icon with your hand and watch the reflection - you can discern that it changes slightly.

Fun, kinda mesmerizing for simple minds such as mine. But now the tea will spill out of the teacup's reflection.

Incentive for me to get a user icon! Now just make it give you a free order of tea when you move the mouse over it...

Thank you for your suggestion. We will file it with the suggestion, made by a guy named Joe, for "Give Free Tea To Guys Named Joe Day." I can tell you, however, that it does not look likely that either suggestion will be taken seriously any time soon.

But good try :)
