Post #85


Melissa (ladybug) (LadybugsDoodles) | 523 comments yes, everyone else (but me) can see stars. Since that is what I want everyone (even me, lol) to see, I am just going to laugh and hope it corrects itself.


Midu Hadi | 2487 comments huh, Melissa..no stars? *can see them perfectly*


Melissa (ladybug) (LadybugsDoodles) | 523 comments hehe, stars didn't come out there either. :p, looks like my post. oh well, since just I have problems seeing correctly will just laugh and call it computer problems.


Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 15262 comments Hummm. Well, GRs was acting a little wonky for one of my posts, too. Earlier. I was getting %@ type symbols for a bullet. But it went away. Just so you know, the stars look fine to me. Copied the following from your post.

Melissa (ladybug) (LadybugsDoodles) | 523 comments To me, look like Aramaic or Hebrew writing. Weird that! I tried to edit, and in the edit screen is stars. But went back to weird when I clicked edit post.


Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 15262 comments They look fine to me.


Melissa (ladybug) (LadybugsDoodles) | 523 comments My stars are all wonky O_o?
