I agree that I'm not sure which ones are which now, but I do like having the cuppa & flowers on the app now!

MrsChristmasVamos Sun 02-Dec-12 17:07:42

Ahhh, not on app.

You need a laptop, Drink. smile

DrinkFeckArseGirls Sun 02-Dec-12 17:35:49

Well, I do have a laptop, but if I didn't have one I sure would go and spend £s just to see the old smilies. hmmgrin

Yes, on my iPhone. As I spend a lot of time on it MNing working O'd like it to be fixed, ta.

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 02-Dec-12 20:07:59

That is weird
Will see what we can find out.

DrinkFeckArseGirls Sun 02-Dec-12 20:59:56

Basically after the upgrade, the smilies now look like iPhone smilies abd not like MN ones.

It's just not the same, esp. with grin and hmm.

DrinkFeckArseGirls Tue 04-Dec-12 09:20:41

Actually it's much worse. confused <-- is a confused face and envy vom is this --> envy. shock

RooneyMara Tue 04-Dec-12 09:29:46

they all look the same as they ever did to me. (on a desktop)

SavoyCabbage Tue 04-Dec-12 09:33:51

I don't know what half of them are. Like the iced gem. envy and the shock dead body. Sad looks like downtrodden. sad

DrinkFeckArseGirls Tue 04-Dec-12 10:00:45

Rooney this heresy is happening on the upgraded MN App and I suspect only on iPhones.

RooneyMara Tue 04-Dec-12 10:04:53

I'm intrigued to see them now! I rather like the sound of 'downtrodden' grin is that wrong of me...?

SavoyCabbage Tue 04-Dec-12 10:28:46

Whoops, Rooney, hmm is heartbreaking. Oliver Twist asking for 'more' has nothing on sad.

Startail Tue 04-Dec-12 10:29:44

The green heart for envy is all wrong or perhaps all right,
since DD1 and I do love non dyslexic DD2, but we are very envyof her being able to spell.

BeaWheesht Tue 04-Dec-12 10:30:51


All done on iPhone - none of them look different to me?

DrinkFeckArseGirls Tue 04-Dec-12 10:35:18

Bea have you recently upgraded the MN app?

CaptainKirksNipples Tue 04-Dec-12 10:36:25

Just loaded them on the app and my iPad. Much prefer the normal ones too!

RandallPinkFloyd Tue 04-Dec-12 10:42:06

Ooh, weird.

Opened this on the mobile site which is what I normally use and they all look normal.

Went onto the app to have a look and they're all weird!

The pombear is just a blank post!

BeaWheesht Tue 04-Dec-12 10:53:04

Ohhhhh I see now

What is biscuit?????

SavoyCabbage Tue 04-Dec-12 11:09:34

biscuit is the biscuit!

Is confused supposed to be hmmmm? Or is this hmm hmmmmm?

winkThis one is a saucy sailor.

TimeyWimeyStuff Tue 04-Dec-12 11:11:17

Yup, I can't tell what half of them are on the iPad app. I'm not going to update the iPhone app as a result. sad

BeaWheesht Tue 04-Dec-12 11:21:00

I updated just to see how shit they are and now I'm stuck with them. hmm

HoratiaLovesBabyJesus Tue 04-Dec-12 11:25:52

They are normal on the Android app.

Proof if further proof were needed that Android spanks Apple grin grin grin grin grin

PuffPants Tue 04-Dec-12 17:20:21

I just accepted the update to the app and rush I could undo it. The smileys are horrible! Please put them back to how they were or I will stitch my eyes up like this shock and then go to sleep like this sad.

Also not getting on with new layout but that's probably just me...

bonzo77 Tue 04-Dec-12 21:46:25

Viviennemary Tue 04-Dec-12 21:53:26

You're not invisible, and we're sorry the app is being such a PITA. The app doesn't seem to like pointy brackets, but we are working on it!

The main app thread is [[ here], so please do come and wave your knickers at us there.

DrinkFeckArseGirls Sun 09-Dec-12 19:51:04

It's been 7 days and 15hours...
And the shit smileys are still here! angry

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 09-Dec-12 20:01:36

'I go out every night and sleep all day
Since you took the 'envy' face away'


Seriously, we're sorry about this. We're seeing what we can do and will post a proper update when we can.
