Is Frank trying to suggest we practice our scales? I can't make heads or tails out of it. He's definitely trying to tell us some fin.

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.

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*

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).

You guys are tripping, that thing looks nothing like a fish. In fact, it doesn't look like anything other than two concentric circles and a triangle, with white outlines.

Boy, Mark, you really opened a can of worms with this thread. I can't hold you completely responsible though because, after all, we took the bait.

Yes -- As they say, "Sometimes a concentric circle and a triangle with white outlines is just a concentric circle and a triangle with white outlines." smile

LOL, Mark!

Is not the brilliant design of this little logo meant to say, "[See this arrow? See this button?] Click Here!!!" ...and all communicated efficiently and effectively in as long as it takes you to glance at the little visual masterpiece? Advertising manipulation extrordinaire! smirk eek mad sick frown

LOL right back at you! smile

To tell the utter naked truth (so to speak), it looked to me like some kind of stray smiley that had somehow gotten on there, and I tried mightily to edit it out of my post till I realized everybody's posts had it. ha

Seems that ever since "the fish" appeared here, clicking around for me on this forum is PAINFULLY SLOW. So I dunno if it's da fish or my computer...anybody else?

Yes, sometimes the forum pages look like they are constantly loading, even though they have clearly loaded.

Someone get rid of this annoying fish - it's distracting. I'm going to have to create a signature so it banishes it far away from what I'm actually posting.

I don't think it's the fish. smile I've noticed the site being slow on-and-off at times, including in the last few days, and I think going back to before we had it. But I'm not sure about it.

Yes, Mark; I agree. The occasional sluggishness of this site pre-dates - by many moons - this new mystery icon/symbol.

Today, for a few seconds, the icon I have in my "most visited" bar in Mozilla for the Pianist Corner changed to another icon, which is still part of PW, but is different. It was the one usually associated with the PW Picture File Upload... Then it went back to the normal icon.
Strange things are going on with icons in this corner of the world...

This little icon is a link to the "Share This dot com". It is very annoying. It was either added to PW by the admin/owner or was added by a hacker. Unless the webmaster deletes it soon I must conclude it is there with Frank's permission.

THANK YOU!
I was wondering if maybe it was stated somewhere else on the site. But I figured even if it had been, it would have been mentioned on this stupid thread too. smile
