Emoji = some are OK, some are 'squashed'

Have your emoji changed size recently?

Please would you have a look and comment below

 

Mine are rather a mixed bunch

The lower lines of emoji are rather squashed up & difficult to read the captions

@WispaRed7 

Yes mine have all changed this morning.(On PC)

The new ones are too big, the old ones are totally squashed.

Once posted they are fine but the emoji box looks very weird this morning

 

Some examples

Noticed this too, so it's in the preview box where you choose the emoji you want to add in your post, but as far as I saw it appears ok once it's added. There's a weekly maintenance update from Lithium (our forum platform provider, separate from any custom development that we do, such as the homepage) usually every Tue/Wed and due to the new homepage development work in the past few months these regular maintenance updates were paused, so I believe we got several Lithium updates at the same time last night going live. Looks like they wanted to make the smileys "box" more evenly displayed, but looks like it didn't work so well with smileys that are a different size than the "default" ones... thinking 

If you spot any other new random changes, I'd love to hear about it!

And it's on mobile as well. I just thought it was my phone, which is why I didn't say anything.

Oo.... how strange

Lithium seem to break things on a regular basis when they are improving things....

I've noticed too that the insert video button has changed position ...

Re: Emoji = some are OK, some are 'squashed'

Hi all.

I notice smileys were "squashed" making difficult to idenify which were which...

btw you experts - can anyone tell me in a non-geeky way - how and are we allowed to load smiley on here? I notice sites offering other free smileys with codes, click xxx to save, paste by clicking yyy, but when I tried putting one on post on Community thread just came up with webby address....

Hi @Mi-Amigo 

Have you tried a straight copy and paste? ie right click copy and then paste on your post. Like this
