What's the thing after the word "titles" in your title?

It's not showing (and unlike the confused gives no hint about what it might be).

it's a shocked face.

MNHQ need to sort this out!

You have never been able to use the MN smilies in thread titles AFAIK.

MNHQ need to sort it out and bin the emoticons off.

Agreeing with binning the emojis...

Hi 00100001, hi everyone else,

Yup, it's as Sparklingbrook said, the fact of the matter is you've never been able to use MN smileys in thread titles.

We do see the problem with emojis showing up though. It looks a blooming mess, and we are going to sort this.

The trouble is, it's going to take our Tech team a while to fix, so it's looking like this won't happen until after Christmas now...

please say you're getting rid of emojis for good <prays for a Christmas miracle>

00100001 Fri 18-Dec-15 17:44:08

and yes, I knew you couldn't use the MN emoticons, it was more to make the point! fsmile

I don't mind the emojis in posts. I am glad they are going to be removed from thread titles.

Well, you may just get your Christmas wish.

Only it won't be until after Christmas... fwink

I think they're a bit all or nothing though perhaps from a tech POV?

I'm glad you're going to get rid of them in titles, the current one in active convos is really annoying, if all titles end up like that I'm going to have to stop using the site, it makes it look childish imo

On a related note - can anyone explain what the heck santa is??

Sparklingbrook Fri 18-Dec-15 17:53:52

It's all in the emoji debate thread in Site Stuff. Loads of Mnetters can't even see them and they appear as teeny tiny squares.
Seems odd to have a function that not everyone can make use of. Plus they do look messy and remind me of a teenage facebook page.

Something to do with MN Secret Santa Vet.
