What happened to my avatar??
Not on the forum home page or on my posts.
Check your PM.
When using a remote avatar, make sure your host works :D
That's why I recommend uploading to F1T.

For those with a technical mindset... I checked the performance differences.
  • Forum speed has improved a bit, mostly thanks to reworking some slow queries
  • The site's homepage is now 6% slower - but, it's temporary 8)
But, overall, I'm most happy that there are no issues, as replacing 500 source files can be tricky ;)

You mean it used to work?
I thought this never worked... at least it never worked on any of the mobiles I was able to test on.

Also, the Ferrari launch was a hammering for the server. Highest instantenous request/s in 5 years :mrgreen:

It might not have :lol: just something I just realized, and thought the update could be the reason 😄
But now that I think about it, as far as I remember it haven't shown reputation points on mobile either

That’s odd, because I have never been able to vote on my iPhone using Safari

Hollus do you use the default DNS or have you changed it?

I found in the past that can interfere with how some websites load & operate

& congrats on the hit-rate Steven, the site has got better year on year, you deserve it!

It works... if you hit the vote button, hit the button in the dialog box, go into portrait mode, scroll to wherever the dialog box has ended up, hit the vote button (which won't work) close the dialog box, hit the vote button again to reopen the dialog box, then hit the vote button again and voilà! It's just that easy!

The titles can overlap with the voting icons of posts. It is a very long title, though...
