Um what does this mean?

(72 Posts)

On the app it looks like someone just shat themselves.

What emotion is it supposed to portray?

MrsRajeshKoothrappali Tue 01-Jan-13 18:51:28



I was wondering that. I do not like the new app. It doesn't have a proper hmm face.

KnifetyForks Tue 01-Jan-13 18:53:35

I hate the app smilies. confused one and also shock one - I don't like the crosses where the eyes should be. envy is stupid and biscuit I presume is supposed to be a biscuit but it looks like it has a weird moustache.

shock So shocked I died?
blush Embarrassed shock?
biscuit Nazi leader of the choc biscuits

RubyrooUK Tue 01-Jan-13 19:34:04

I can't tell what half of them as supposed to be either.

For ages I thought this smile was an embarrassed smile. Then I realised the smile emoticon just had rosy cheeks.

I also thought this one hmm was going to sleep. I thought it was really rude how many people fell asleep during people's sad stories.

Is this biscuit really a biscuit? If so, what variety? It looks like a motorcycle helmet made of poo.

RubyrooUK Tue 01-Jan-13 20:37:03

Wait hold on - which of these two is sad?

hmm Or sad

I genuinely can't tell. Bring back the old emoticons MNHQ!

biscuit On iPhone emoji alphabet is sushi so not sure how it ended up as a biscuit on here!

PickledInAPearTree Tue 01-Jan-13 20:53:07

I HATE the new smilies.

blush What's this? Straining for a crap?

biscuit Cycle helmet?

angry Satans love child

wink Sleazy cheese face?

Shall I report this and get it moved to site stuff so that someone looks at it and realises the mistake? They clearly didn't mean to give us shite emoticons did they? grin

PickledInAPearTree Tue 01-Jan-13 21:01:55

Yes yes! I hate the new ones!

everlong Tue 01-Jan-13 21:04:38

New smilies?

PickledInAPearTree Tue 01-Jan-13 21:05:25

These I phone abominations everlong!

noisytoys Tue 01-Jan-13 21:06:22

I can't stop laughing this thread is so funny already grin

Bubblegum78 Tue 01-Jan-13 21:07:42

I think the buscuit one looks like a boob!

SavoyCabbage Tue 01-Jan-13 21:07:59

blush unexpectedly sat on a hedgehog

sad down trodden

ReinDearPrudence Tue 01-Jan-13 21:08:17

this is why I haven't updated to the new app.

PickledInAPearTree Tue 01-Jan-13 21:08:56

I want to know what actual fucking biscuit they have modelled it on biscuit

biscuitbiscuit What the fuck biscuit is this???

PickledInAPearTree Tue 01-Jan-13 21:10:07

My old app was freezing I had to hmmor sad

GreatCongas Tue 01-Jan-13 21:17:46

It's a Chinese cracker with seaweed according to google

RubyrooUK Tue 01-Jan-13 21:23:36

But what do those two actually mean Pickled? I realise now that this sad one is probably sad. So what is this hmm one?

A bit miffed?
Slightly perturbed?
Mildly irritated?

<genuine question alert>

PickledInAPearTree Tue 01-Jan-13 21:32:23

It's I'm going to be sad in a minute if you carry on...

fatcuntroller Tue 01-Jan-13 21:33:22

Mine havent changed confused

BertieBotts Tue 01-Jan-13 21:35:31

This is hilarious when reading it through the normal site, not having a clue what the "new" emoticons look like grin

Nixea Tue 01-Jan-13 21:36:40

I had to view this thread on the app and in a window just to see the new faces...and it confused the crap outta me! The nazi biscuit made me roar!

TheDeadlyDonkey Tue 01-Jan-13 21:39:57

I'm downloading the app as I type just to see what the fuss is all about grin

hmm Pissed off

Nixea Tue 01-Jan-13 21:42:04

Glad I'm not the on,y one who's just done that DeadlyDonkey! grin

thanks Stingy bastard only brought four blooms aibu?

TheDeadlyDonkey Tue 01-Jan-13 21:44:08

God yes, they're terrible!
I'm a complete saddo, cos I'm going to try all the smilies and see what they look like on normal MN.


Can't remember there being a heart?

TheDeadlyDonkey Tue 01-Jan-13 21:44:41

Yeah, the biscuit's shit on the app.

I have reported the thread with the message:

Can this be moved to site stuff once we've taken the pee out of every new face?
On a slightly more serious note, the new faces are pretty shite.
We miss the old faces, IMO, the confused face, biscuit and hmm face are the worst.

rubyrubyruby Tue 01-Jan-13 21:45:35

You are all bonkers

TheDeadlyDonkey Tue 01-Jan-13 21:45:50

So the heart is envy? Weird.

PickledInAPearTree Tue 01-Jan-13 21:46:17

I just had a peep at site stuff and its on the list!

Thank god. confused

Nixea Tue 01-Jan-13 21:46:56

bear plus when did fancy cocktails replace a decent glass of wine!! wine

Why is envy green?
Are we mumsnetters only allowed to love with jealous envious hearts?

There's already a thread about this in Site Stuff - but one more can't hurt!

I still have the old app so it is pretty funny looking at these posts and imagining what the new emoticons must look like.

Nixea Tue 01-Jan-13 21:48:49

"Why is envy green?"

Dunno but it could be sponsored by LV!

PickledInAPearTree Tue 01-Jan-13 21:50:09

brew And I think this is coffee!


This thread is making me laugh. I'm not sure ds appreciates my wobbling boob as he's trying to feed!

I said on another thread I've been using envy for congratulating people on my antenatal thread without realising its the envy one on the desktop site blush

RubyrooUK Tue 01-Jan-13 21:51:22

For me that last post reads as:

Picture of steaming cup of shit

<falls asleep>

Subliminal advertising! Now there's a whole scope of conspiracy to be made from this!!!
thanks Does mumsnet invest in tulips?
brew Are they opposed to milk sales?
wine Shares in spirits
biscuit No comment on the possible subliminal message here.

RubyrooUK Tue 01-Jan-13 21:52:45

Not your one Spotty. Pickled's last one. Oh god I'm fucking this up again.

shock Or hmm or confused or blush

I'm sure one of those must convey something relevant.

GreatCongas Tue 01-Jan-13 21:57:25

envy Is green because its supposed to be jealous/envy, fuck knows why it's a heart then

wink Scouse brow gone wrong

butterfingerz Tue 01-Jan-13 22:08:11

I'm on android, they look ok to me? I downloaded the app just to see what all the fuss is about...

butterfingerz Tue 01-Jan-13 22:10:56

though I've always thought the mumsnet mug looks like it has a hash leaf on it rather than the logo... thought it was a 'special' brew...

Perhaps it's an iPhone thing?

DrinkFeckArseGirls Tue 01-Jan-13 22:43:03

I already started a thread about it in site stuff yonks ago. Apparently they're on it hmm.

DrinkFeckArseGirls Tue 01-Jan-13 22:44:25

Yes, it's the new iPhone app upgrade issue. sad

Thick question probably but what is the benefit of the iphone app as opposed to viewing the webpage?

RubyrooUK Tue 01-Jan-13 22:52:17

I never use a desktop at home and generally find the app easier to read than the mobile version. Also I stay signed in on the app more effectively than through the mobile web version.

That's about it really.

I was wavering about starting this thread myself but I wasn't sure if everyone else had the shit faces and I would look a but mad.

Except now I never look mad or angry or hmmmy. Just very sad or dead-eyed. And I usually love a good hmm.

GlassTrees Wed 02-Jan-13 07:16:59

I'm on an iPad and EVERY TIME I just rest my hand to read a thread I accidentally touch the Just Giving thing at the bottom and go whizzing off to it's web page. It's in the wrong place!!!!

GreatCongas Wed 02-Jan-13 10:36:37

Glass trees I do that on my phone too


Also why does £ sign now read &pound; ????

HazeltheMcWitch Wed 02-Jan-13 15:31:49

Stupid android. I want to see all these shonky emoticons. I want to see a Nazi biscuit, dammit!

SandyMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 02-Jan-13 16:39:10

Loving all the malarkey folks. But please take note, these emoticons really do live in your phones (oh yes they do) and they have FEELINGS people, feelings.
<returns to console a sobbing biscuit>

Feeling all smug that despite having to waits YEARS for the Android app, ours are all still beautifully the same grin

Would like to see these ones though. ..

shock I don't think this one has feelings anymore sandymumsnet.

BrianCoxandTheTempleofDOOM Wed 02-Jan-13 18:07:39

I think you are all mad.

But then I only MN on the mobile site (non app) or desktop, so this thread reads as though you are all taking acid.


(that's a grin btw, no idea how it will turn out on your iPhone!)

It looks like a grin of someone on acid. I'm looking at you mnhq.

MirandaWest Wed 02-Jan-13 18:55:12

They're the emoji emoticon smileys aren't they? I use them on my iPhone and iPad. Don't use the MN app though as it always crashes on me

Yeah they are but they're a selection of bad ones!

TameGaloot Wed 02-Jan-13 20:07:23


PickledInAPearTree Wed 02-Jan-13 20:15:47

It's a grin Brian but it has Simon cowe teeth in its smug gob!

PickledInAPearTree Wed 02-Jan-13 20:16:25

Cowell grin

IceTheChristmasKateMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 03-Jan-13 16:35:18

The weirdest thing is that the emoticons come through as normal on the big site. So you all look crazy.

BUT we know you and love you and do realise that the emoticons are screwed up. Sorry.
