App icon getting smaller and smaller

Mine is almost gone. I feel like my life will cease to have purpose if it disappears! (J/k)

It’s a running joke that came from a livestream malfunction. Fans turned the white dot into a character. On the April 1st show they displayed it as a joke.

Has it already been determined whether or not the icon is collapsing upon itself? Is it about to go nova?

Not yet. Why’d you ask?

Perhaps it will become a pulsar icon and flash several times a second!

I’ve seen this movie…and I know how it ends.

I’ve seen that movie too and it ends with a wonderful philosophic speech, so maybe this icon thing will lead you to a new view of the universe.

It was continuing to shrink, to become… what? The infinitesimal? What was it? Still an icon? Or was it the icon of the future? If there were other bursts of radiation, other clouds drifting across seas and continents, would other beings follow it into this vast new world? So close — the infinitesimal and the infinite. But suddenly, I knew they were really the two ends of the same concept. The unbelievably small and the unbelievably vast eventually meet — like the closing of a gigantic circle. I looked up, as if somehow I would grasp the heavens. The universe, worlds beyond number, Android OS, God’s silver tapestry spread across the night. And in that moment, I knew the answer to the riddle of the infinite. I had thought in terms of the icon’s own limited dimension. I had presumed upon nature. That existence begins and ends in the icon’s conception, not nature’s. And I felt my body dwindling, melting, becoming nothing. My fears melted away. And in their place came acceptance. All this vast majesty of creation, it had to mean something. And then I meant something, too. Yes, smaller than the smallest, I meant something, too. To God, there is no zero. I still exist! And I’m going to update my phone tonight when I can plug it in!

CAN YOU BELIEVE THERE’S NO GIF OF THIS?!?!

(OK, I couldn’t find one, but it’s gotta be out there somewhere, right?)

Is it truly an icon if you can no longer see that which has shrunk smaller than perception?

Does the icon at that point still exist?
– Will the forums disappear when the icon is no longer tangible?

I’ll be slightly sad if it is not in fact linked to the phases of the moon, and has some reasonable technological explanation after all.

I feel like Android is gaslighting us. “No! Your icons have always been that size. What are you even talking about?”

By the way, if you get tired of seeing how small the icon will get, you can reset it:

  1. Uninstall the forum app.
  2. Visit forums.mst3k.com in Chrome
  3. Reinstall the app from the link at the top of the page.
