Hello Eshat,

thank you for your work! The style of your icons looks similar to those
at http://thenounproject.com/ that Valessio suggested at [1], so you
might want to save time taking things from there instead of redrawing
them from scratch. Style-wise, my comments are similar to those in my
mail to Valessio; I'll try to provide a test page this afternoon.

In terms of the format, yes, you can definitely get them wider. I was
even wondering if they could have a "progressbar" aspect ratio instead
of an "icon" aspect ratio: after all, they are representing a progress.

With a progressbar as a background to show relative progress, and icons
in the foreground to show the meaning of the current state, they should
convey quite a bit of information, and with a larger canvas it should be
easier to convey the complex meanings.
