That beautiful swirly thing beside messages?
Aight, so lemme be real -- that thing is beautiful. So much nicer than just a simple dot. A great touch, really. But has anyone ever noticed it just doesn't show up sometimes? I'm wondering what it is about that image that makes it show up sometimes and not others; perhaps the hardware using Cherubplay? I've seen some mobile versions have it and other's not -- same with computers. This lil' thing has been an enigma for me and I just cannot figure it out.

Yes. I am defeated by a swirl. Shuriken-y swirl? But swirl none the less.

Sure you want me?

RE: That beautiful swirly thing beside messages?
For me, it depends on the browser I'm using. Google and Internet Explorer don't seem to load it, but Firefox does no matter what device I'm using - be it laptop, Macbook, or mobile.

So I'm pretty sure it has something to do with that. If someone's willing to correct me, however, go right ahead. :>

I use chrome on my laptop and mobile, but I do remember for a while it didn't show up on my phone.

It always shows up for me, but then again, I only use mobile devices and Safari, so maybe that's why.

AA is right, the "Shuriken-y swirl" is the weather symbol for a cyclone/hurricane/typhoon/LRS (Large Rotating Storm). Oddly enough, on mobile it appears as a blue Archimedean spiral (the coiled spiral on an immature cherub's cheek).

I think, on further investigation, it might be a mixture of how the browser and device handle unicode, because I know some phones can't read emoticons, either. I gather its the same sort of issue, best as I can tell.

It appears but it doesn't umm... "swirl"? For me sometimes, dunno why.
