Which ones are you speaking of specifically?

I know the "wink" icon gets weird on me. Sometimes it'* annimated, sometimes it'* not. Never could really put my finger on why.

Sometimes come up differently, the php coding name is the same or something, same word, 2 different images of the same theme.

Look at the difference between JDB'* signature line and the wink in my post above.

Something weird going on there...
