    Morning Sexy Peeps...
    One thing I am being asked often about, is why people are using so many question marks in chat and is there an issue.
    What's happening is, the person typing is not using our emojis smilar to WhatsApp and Apple's own keyboard set, but instead using other emojis which do not parse (translate) in chat.

    So an example could be;
    "Good morning peeps ????"
    When it could/should be
    "Good morning peeps ;) :love:"
    (for example.)

    So I would suggest using the emojis in chat or the WhatsApp and emoji keyboard or Apple one.

    Secondly, across the forums you may also see these off some members;
    ☺ ☺

    These also do not parse (translate) - they will for you if you use them and have them installed on your phone, but they won't for others who do not have them installed.

    If you're reading this thread and are wondering what I mean, here's a screenshot of how odd these things look;

    So there we have it.
    The ???? situation is by not using our emojis or say the Apple ones on your phones, and not the person you are chatting to - being offensive through excessive punctuation.
    And
    These smilies on the forums are not parsing (translating) as they are device specific and only work if you have them installed.

    Hope this helps.

    You still can't get the smilies to parse in the chat? LOL

    No it's not that, it's people using different smilies from their phones such as the default ones in say Samsung Galaxy - they won't parse correctly as they're not on our systems rather, the individuals phone.

    Of course parse works in chat with keys etc. ;)
