What is the new fish-looking icon for in the first place, does it have a purpose?
I'm afraid to click on the thing...

http://www.sharethis.com/ Some sort of widget thing in our posts. We are being encourage to share.
Whatever this whole sharing thing is... I sometimes share my lunch with birds attacking my vehicle. More of a self-defense mechanism, rather than sharing.

Very fine.

Wait-- are you kidding? That's what this whole thread is about. It all started because Mark decided it looked like a fish.

It's ShareThis, basically a way to share your post on Facebook, Twitter, Digg and stuff.

As can be seen, it hasn't exactly been implemented that well.



Also, this thread is a bit................................fishy. *bursts into uncontrollable laughter to the point of pain*

Frank's trying to add some social media features here. Frank, if you're reading this, why not just implement very small twitter and facebook icons (the 2 biggies.) I've seen this done on other sites to great success! smile

Well, it's the first thing I saw too - a fish. Are some of you saying that it's NOT supposed to look like a fish? No way...
It's very distracting, and now my internet explorer constantly looks like it's trying to load the page with it's little green bar churning away.
I don't like change! frown

This will be enough, thank-you. IMO... I'm not really sure what it looks like. Now if I were back in my pot-laced uni days... well all bets off. smokin

(who started an eternal battle with the circle, by colliding into his left side, making a triangular dent which formed Pac-Man. This interrupted the very nature of being, giving the circle a consciousness, a name, and - indeed - a mouth. Not to worry though. Goodness favors edgelessness. God, as a result, blessed Pac-man with a halo, giving him the power to defeat his enemy. As he swallowed the triangle, it filled his triangular mouth, thereby dissolving Pac-mans consciousness. He once again became a complete circle, and the conflict of the universe ended)

Or an astronaut fish? Floating through the white-khaki void, surfing by the litter of the billions and billions of words that surround him - each containing a world of information within, and ... perhaps, each cosmically linked to each other to form a galaxy of sentence. Mystery surrounds him, he is but a traveller.

If, when you first log on and then arrive at the "Forums" page, toward the top of the page you'll see icons for "sharing" PianoWorld with other sites that you may visit such as Facebook, Twitter, etc., etc. I'm sure the "fish" is connected with the sharing aspect in some way, shape, or form.

Apparently, it is called a "chicklet", which is either
- to indicate the availability of an RSS feed,
- an animal (chiclet)
- a chewing gum (Chiclet) (the logo looks like the "fish" button, so it makes sense).

It's a play button trying to upstage a record button (probably got jealous of the record button's greater powers).
