What happened to purple snowflake and red ski symbols?

Post by Altitude High »

I used to see drawings of purple snowflakes and red skiers beside user's names. For some time now, they're been replaced by tiny blue and red boxes.

Very rarely, like for a day a couple of weeks ago, the cool drawings will return. Then disappeared to tiny, unimaginative squares again.

I know, they're just symbols on a computer screen. But I thought they were cool.

I don't think there was ever a purple snowflake icon.
Only blue.

Only blue.
We're all purple snowflakes, in our own minds...

If you're seeing colored squares instead of the actual images, it's because your browser has not fully downloaded the font file required by the page. Maybe you're on a super slow internet connection? You could try clearing your browser cache and refreshing the page.
“Today, up on this hill
I'm counting all the killers
They sway as they swarm
A look of gluttons in their eyes
They mutter as the body loses warmth
They pick your bones like locks inside a tomb
And take great care to not take care of you”

Because they were Prime mates?
