I work on a platform where users post requests and other users are connected with them, so they come and solve the first users' problems. Pretty much like a freelancing website. I need an appropriate icon for making a request - like.. a clock would be for fastness. My question is what characteristics would fit the case.

Any advice, please?

Best of luck.
