ALERT! Smilie's got blinking eyes.

While composing a reply I just used the live preview with a :slight_smile: in the text and I see that the eyes blink.

Thought I should alert the community ASAP. (well it’s been a slow day)

Well Ok then… :slight_smile: Sorry, just had to try it… Not blinking for me…

I see that the eyes blink

I’ve had that happen after going without sleep for more than 24 hours or consuming too many organic molecules containing a hydroxyl group. [smiley=wink.gif]

Yeah man, I think your tired or… how to put this nicely… CRAZY! :wink:

:slight_smile:

He’s right! If you click the “live preview” option, it does blink! But only in the live preview, weird.

It only blinks one time, its s non looping gif.

Can’t believe I fell for this. No blinking on my live preview. :slight_smile: For those that did see the blink, did the smily blink this?
…-. — — .-…
;D

Thanks sciguy, I’m not going crazy then (or we both are). Not trying to FOOL you liudr.

Maybe the different results are a browser thing, I’m using IE8.

EDIT: Tried these and I get the same with all of them.

Firefox 3.0.11
Safari 4 beta
Opera 9.64
Chrome 8.0.552.224

Too much blinking!

I’m using Safari 5.0.3 on Mac os 10.6.6

They blink for me, but only every now and then, you have to be staring at it to even see it

Too much blinking!

Of course only you can modify (and therefore see) it, but hey, that’s the happiest post I’ve ever seen.

This is a test :slight_smile: In the event of a real message this post would contain

Real message comming through

It is not the same file. Seems the preview file [smiley=smiley.gif] is 808 bytres long, and the embedded one :slight_smile: is 1107 bytes, and does also contain animation frames. Both are called smiley.gif

See ?

:slight_smile: At first I couldn’t find the live preview, just the preview. But yes they blink every now and then in live preview. ;D

It blinks for me about every 3 seconds…
Also, all of them are animated !!!
!!!

:slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile: blinks

Spot the difference between these two
:slight_smile: [smiley=smiley.gif]
I see a difference on the posted version (only one blinks), both blink in the live preview.

They both point to different files, so we can assume that the live preview simply uses smilies from a different folder and it’s not a conspiracy after all.
