User feedback from user testing "what is this icon supposed to mean", "shouldn't this be a picture of a document or a video or image?":

User Stories

As a SecureDrop source, I want icons to aid in my comprehension of the functions of the interface.

More thoughts on the pancake icon: DropBox and Google Drive's web interfaces at least use either no icon and just a text button or a blank file with an arrow like this: https://thenounproject.com/term/upload/1268576/.

Looks like there's already an upload icon being used in-line with the submit button; Arrow in a cloud. It's a bit out of place in the button imho; It might be advisable to replace the pancake icon with the cloud icon, then use a single-color checkmark-in-a-circle icon for the Submit button and add a x-in-a-circle for the Cancel button.
