We’ll be happy to deal with any and all inquiries via PM.   

I get the reasoning for getting rid of the thread. However, I don't think quietly doing it, with no explanation, is the way to go. This is a community, and not everyone used it as a piling-on thread. There are some who went there for context, and it is useful to inform us of the circumstances, to avoid putting ourselves in similar spots.

 

Are we owed an explanation? Probably not, but more trasparency is generally better.

Again, if you have questions, please send a PM to the moderating team.

Maybe i should clarify that I, personally, do not. I was just making an observatio/giving an opinion.

you have to swipe left from the right edge of your screen, and that'll all show up.

 

I HATE it, and consider it a bad feature but it's all there.

Yup. Annoying as can be at first. I'm used to it now but I still don't like it.

At some time over the past couple of weeks, I seem to have lost the ability to resize a picture in a post made in the mobile interface.

 

I used to be able to tap twice on the picture in order to call up the dialogue box that allowed me to adjust the image's length and width. But no more.

 

Now when I tap twice on a picture that I am including in a post, this has no effect apart from highlighting that picture. I can no longer adjust its size.

 

Some photos and graphics are a lot bigger than they need to be for a post; and so the ability to shrink them down a bit was very useful.

what's the fastest way to upload an image to a host so you can post the link when in phone? 

I’ve been using the imgur app.

Does the inability to upload pictures here directly have to do with some members avatars disappearing?

 

(Also if someone could tell me if my avatar is still there it would be appreciated. I'm pretty sure I saved this picture and uploaded it directly here, but it was a while ago.)

More than likely. In order to get the server bill under control, some older attachments had to be removed from the server. Anything uploaded between Jan. 1, 2016 and Aug. 31, 2016 has been removed from the server, but those files were backed up and are available upon request. 

 

I can still see your avatar.

I have a suggestion in the Concepts section:

 

Since there is the Sports Fan Fiction subforum now, I wonder if all Logolympiad stuff should have it's own subforum as well? That way the current Logolympiad and years-past can all be viewed together, including the follow-up Portfolio threads.  Primarily to avoid cluttering non-Logolympiad threads

Has anyone else been redirected to an virus-containing site while randomly scrolling? It's been consistently happening  to me for the past week.

Thank God for antivirus.

That happened a TON a while ago to me, but it stopped a couple weeks ago. Are you getting redirected to a site that says “You’ve got the secret chance!” and has a thumbs up on it? If so, that’s the one that I got.

I don't actually know, the antivirus just aborts the connection before the website can load.

Not sure if there's a new version of this redirect, but whatever it is, it's now mysteriously finding its way past my antivirus. Very difficult to get out of once the page redirects.
