Giant Emoji


#1

For our new members:

The giant smileys are a quirk of the forum software. They result when you type in a smiley emoticon; that is a : followed by a ).

You can obtain normal sized emoji by clicking on the “smileys” button on the bottom left when composing a post, and picking one’s emoji of choice.

Of course, if you like the giant emoji you are very welcome to use them. This is just to explain what is going on. I expect most are pretty surprised when the giant smiling face appears upon saving a new post.

It may also be helpful for people to know that any text-based smileys are problematic in general right now, so using the blue ‘smileys’ button below the typing space may be best.

Typing anything other than a colon+right parenthesis (smile) is really messed up. A left parenthesis for a ‘frown’ emoji may make the post vanish, rather than be posted. A semicolon for a ‘wink’ may wedge the software.

These are just a couple of the bugs that showed up back in May. Reference: Link: new-forum-issues/disappearing-posts

@adminpaul - Have you heard back from your IT guy yet? http://www.psaudio.com/forum/new-forum-issues/disappearing-posts/#p48370


#5

No, he seems to have vaporized. I’ll start a new search.


#6

Wow, that’s not good, and it must be frustrating for you, Paul. frown Good luck with the search; hope you find someone that’s good (and can count on) soon.


#7

@adminpaul - It’s been a while, Paul. How’s that search going? We’re still hopeful that the various bugs that suddenly showed up last March will get fixed soon.


#8

@adminpaul - Just in case a list helps… It appears that there may be some additional challenges that were posted in the ‘display-inconsistent-on-list-of-unread-posts’ thread, which was renamed to ‘Help Us Improve the Forum!’’

  • 'Most recent topics with unread posts' button not functioning properly
  • Giant smileys
  • Wink-smileys making posts disappear
  • Post counts being stuck (no longer incrementing)
Forum members that have been around for a while have been muddling through, using various workarounds (which are still a pain in the neck), but this all must be pretty nuts for any newcomers.

#9

Yes, it must be very frustrating for new members.


#10

Let me try again to get our programmer on the case. I have a new one that’s pretty effective.

It’s great that you found someone. Thanks, Paul. Hope he can fix the bugs easily. http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys/smiley-computer004.gif
