The blue 'active' and 'search" boxes at the bottom of the page and the 'paperclip' icon just under the new message box just changed to a different language confused. I'm vaguely familiar with Chinese symbols, but I'm not sure if it was that or not. It's ok now, not sure what happened. And no, I haven't had anything to drink.

Unless it was Korean and Kim Jong-Un is now hacking into MN hmm.

I get this quite often. Will be interested in the explanation now.

It won't be so funny when we're all wearing regulation blue suits and hailing the Dear Leader luis wink.

Don't forget the regulation haircuts. Did it sort itself out?

Oooo how strange. What device and browser are you using?

We will ask Tech what's happening...?

Mine's Sony Xperia, Chrome, Android

I got this yesterday
It was very weird
The font also went really big for a while
I'm using an android phone

Erk. Thanks for flagging - we'll see if Tech can let us know what might be behind it.

Can we confirm you're using the mobile site (NOT the app?)

Yep, the mobile site. Not happened for a while now (weeks/months?) but used to happen all the time - after all the messing about with it. Used to just hang for ages (still does that, of course!) and then the icons would appear as Chinese symbols for a good few seconds before changing.
