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.

You're not one of those who thinks I'm posting mere "opinions" as "facts," are you? ha

It does look like a fish.......it does, it does! help

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

How about a red and angered Pac-Man, adorned with a halo, eating his epic arch enemy-shape: The triangle!

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.

Here, as opposed to there
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.

Plenty of fish here...



I'll figure it out eventually.

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.

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.

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
