"yay"

Hi guys

I am not posting about an error. I was just wondering - has anyone else noticed the word "yay" in the top left hand side corner of the redirection page (edit: but, seemingly, just on the one after editing a post)? Was that a part of debugging the forum code?

Either way, I like it like that. It makes me smile whenever I see it. smile

Re: "yay"

Hi;

Yes, I have seen it. It makes me sad.

Re: "yay"

One of the underlying themes of the three movies was the refusal of deleted programs to go into the Recycle Bin for dissolution. Instead they chose exile or like Agent Smith the desire to control everything.

Re: "yay"

It seems that Essex girls are getting everywhere.

For them it means "a word used ...... to express happieness,  ......." (Urban dictionary) and is nothing to do with drugs.

Re: "yay"

Apparently it is also slang for drugs.  I didn't know that.  I think yay = happiness.

I know that yayo is slang for cocaine. But I did not know that about yay.

Re: "yay"

I think it may be limited to the UK and maybe just to Essex.  I'll ask my daughter,  who says it a lot, as in "Lewis Hamilton is doing well in Formula One,...., yay!"
