Emojies have shrunk!
« on: January 26, 2019, 12:51:42 PM »

Hi,
As I've now got a newer  Android phone with a larger screen I sometimes answer threads using it. Generally just a quick reply.
I realise if I go above the reply box to use the emojies they come out on the preview/posted thread much smaller like this :-[

I have noticed smaller ones in other threads so it appears to be happening with other people.
Let's face it, it's no real problem, just.....odd and noticable with more people using phones.
Just an observation...
Cheers
;)

Ah now.... hang on a minute.
Viewing this email ( and others I've written on phone ) now on my pc and realise the emojies are full sized!
Obviously an artefact of viewing the web on a phone.
How peculiar.
Problem sorted!
cheers

The emojis are images, and there's all sorts of variables that affect the scaling and relative sizes of images and text.

Getting web pages to adapt properly to both PC screens and phones is a black art, and the normal melnet pages are not designed to work well on small screens. (instead there is a WAP option which is plain text, with no images at all, and works nicely on tiny screens)

If the temperature drops by a few more degrees you may hear the thump thump thump of them hitting the floor...................

Hmm, well, I'm not sure if you're showing genuine disdain for them or not. But, if you don't like the forum's smiley/emoticon/emojis, you can turn them off and they will be replaced with their text equivalents by changing the 2nd dropdown here: http://forum.melodeon.net/index.php?action=profile;area=theme

That will apply to your profile across all platforms though.

Thanks, Gena. I don't like them, as I feel that they're another sign that the "powers that be" are  sneakily taking us back to primary school! Plus; the time I tried to use them, I was too thick to work it out, haha.

This shrinkage of everyday objects is nothing new. The great palaeontologist and populariser of science
(the late) Stephen Jay Gould wrote an essay entitled 'Phyletic size decrease in Hershey bars' which was
published in 'Hen's Teeth and Horse's Toes' (1983).

Seems they may not be reducing in size collectively though, as every time they come out in a balloon to temp us to use them, there seem to be more and more variety of the flipping things..........

Not like the nice, polite, well trained melnet ones which sit patiently above the text box
