Why has [brew] taken over [hmm]?

And thanks instead of [ blush ]

Are they slowly eating the other emoticons?

They're even listed that way in the smileys list at the bottom of the page confused.

Have I missed something major?

On the App, I don't get all the emoticons on the bar, but I can still type them in anyway.

The bar on the App shows these :

But I can also type thanks brew and if I could think of any more I could type them.

Nope, that was just a test. As it's October.

[ hmm ] = hmm

[ blush ] = blush

I'm on the main version of the site.

Not just a tipsy smile then, eh?

Sorry, TheTermagantToaster, but we don't quite get what you mean.

Are you saying you're typing [ blush ] and getting thanks?

Yes, I was last night - and when I looked at other threads, I saw lots of brew where context would indicate a hmm would be more appropriate.

But now it's all ok again confused. Even the examples I typed last night have reverted to what they should be. Must have been a glitch...

How odd. Are you sure you weren't on the wine?

Sadly no sad

Toddler and pregnancy putting rather a dampner on the old social life atm.

It could well be sleep deprivation...

I think I remember this happening before, where all the emoticons got jumbled.

I can't remember why or what happened, but I do believe you saw it.

Thanks Nagoo. I was starting to think I might be going mad!

I do not believe you. I will shame you. I am an amoticons appologist.

Hi that happens on iPads sometimes. Are you on an iPad when it happens?

Ooh, hello. Yes I was on the iPad, good to know (have nc, obviously). Thanks Tech!
