The Murmurs icon

This is going to sound odd, but here goes…

Over the last few weeks, the cassette icon on my Murmurs app has been getting smaller! The icon is now a white square with a teeny tiny cassette in the middle!

Is this happening to anyone else?! I promise I haven’t been drinking…

It happened to me as well! I thought I was the only one. The cassette shrunk into a small dot, I had trouble opening it. I reinstalled the app, the icon came back to size, but I think it’s starting to shrink again. Wierd!

Well, I’m glad I’m not the only one! I thought I was going mad!

Yeah, it’s on my phone it’s happening. Also Android. It’s a veritable Murmurs mystery… the mystery of the incredible shrinking cassette. Where Poirot when you need him?

I don’t use it on my phone, only on a desktop PC. But it’s got two sizes anyway. The smaller one is there when you get into a thread and it brings the site’s name; the bigger one shows up after you roll and the thread’s name shows.

It’s not just you guys! I’ve also been noticing it on my (Android - shut up, I’m cheap) phone. I thought the first change made it look better, but now I just get the sense the icon is moving farther away every day. It keeps me on my toes!

Ha! I didn’t notice it until I read this. Yes, the app’s icon has changed. That’s going to drive me nuts now :smile:

I think this site murmurs runs on discourse. It appears to be a bug. :beetle:

“Google acked this bug, fix incoming.”

Is it me or is it smaller today?

Bug or not, it’s undeniably interesting! Is it trying to retreat, discouraged by the tiny number of visitors? Or is it drawing away slowly, trying to entice us to follow to some mysterious other location? Is it becoming an icon in another sense? Come back again to see!

I reinstalled it back to size, it’s slowly shrinking again. :mag::no_mouth:
