Two issues on my iPad today.

1) videos are being cut off in the Video thread on P&G. See:



2) Long usernames are running into the post text block. See:

I also can't see Other Crap. I'm not sure if I had an active subscription, but will be happy to fix it if I didn't. Thanks.

On mobile when in a forum you can see who started the thread, but not who made the most recent post. Is that a me issue? And if not - fixable? Obviously low priority

Same for me. Also not a priority, but would be nice. If anything, I'm used to not seeing either from the old skin.

Another super low priority mobile question I mostly want to confirm I'm not just missing -- there doesn't seem to be a way to reload a thread in the mobile app without scrolling to the top and pulling down. You used to be able to click the icon on the top right and click refresh...which was much better for following game threads on mobile. Am I missing another way of doing this?

I too can't see the "other crap". Had updated/contributed very recently (in response to the Pliny thread making me feel very guilty about letting my subscription lapse) but did so using Paypal, and given Nip's comments, I'm not sure if it made it through. More than happy to contribute again. Thanks to all for your generosity and time in keeping this site running.

Again, if you're having trouble seeing Other Crap please state your circumstances explicitly. There are 2 different cases:

a) If you weren't previously paid up, you could see it but not post in it. Now you can't see it at all; that'll be the case until we figure out another way to pass the hat.
b) If you were previously paid up and could post there pre-move, you're supposed to be able to do so now.

There are so many people in category (a) that I'm not bothering to look at posts by people who say "I can't see Other Crap" unless they also say "I was paid up before and was able to post in P&G/V&N/etc". Nip may be kinder than me.
I was never paid only because I don't do Paypal (long sad story), and I don't do auto-renew (different but similar story). If you can find a way to avoid those two things, I'm in.

OK...so Nip and Sumner spent the afternoon granting access and giving away avatars.

Maybe if you need access, figure out your own avatar as a sign you've been paying attention?

Possibly the most minor issue but not seeing a way to mark a forum as read.

Apologies if it's already been covered, searched and couldn't find anything

Ditto.

Edit: read back through the last few pages to make sure I didn't miss any solutions and realized I always had read only access. Happy to subscribe when that functionality returns.

hover over forums (top left), scroll down and click "mark forums read". You'll have an option to mark that forum or all forums. Click button. Profit.

I can't see other crap, and did not have an active subscription (mostly because when I tried to pay it didn't work) but will gladly pay when the new method is up and running.
