EviLore EviLore , are there any plans to make the select boxes in watched threads any bigger? They’re difficult to select on mobile and often end up opening the threads instead of selecting them.

Can you take a screenshot and show me what you mean?

Boxes on the right take a lot of precision to check due to their small size.

I so miss being able to upload photos here. I hate using Imgur or an external site.

Wouldn't be such an issue if it wasn't for me being stuck on a stupid phone.

Alerts still broken for me on Chrome in desktop.. tried literally clearing all my watched threads, tried the "read all" a bunch, etc.

Randomly works occasionally and doesn't delete the number, but in general it does.

Like I woke up this morning with 14 notifications, and the alert stayed.. but for the last 45 minutes browsing GAF the alert hasn't worked.

My phone really doesn't like this new version...

There is a way to use the previous one?

or can i just personalize what to see? like if i want emoticon and spoiler tag without clicking the 3 dots...

Can anyone tell me how to GIF now? The only button I can hit is that paper+magnifying glass in the top right but it doesn't do anything at the moment?

If I can't gif, I'm borderline useless on this site. My intellectual shallowness will be exposed.

There is the chain link, the picture, and the 3 dots. Hit the picture.

The 3 dots brings up more options so now I can do this

Maybe I missed it but how do I insert images? There used to be a box we could click on and insert images we had saved on our PC but I don't see it anymore.

Not working as intended but from what I've noticed, it is working properly when you edit your post.

The picture is greyed out for me. I can't hit it! I wanted to gif you a response but I'm stuck looking like a damn fool typing these words!

Image upload functionality has been restored. To upload images, simply click on the "+ Image" button below the posting box and select a file.

Very cool. I really like the added "similar threads" section. Not too high on marking my notifications as read, but I'll adjust.

We are still fixing a few outstanding bugs with notifications, and are also working on some new functionality with how they work in general.

So is uploading pics coming back? It's a real hassle on my phone to have to upload them to Imgur and forced to watch video ads before they upload and then link it back here.

Nice.But I keep getting "Upload Failed" even on images I know will work so maybe all the kinks are not out?
What file type and size? Upload it to Imgur or somewhere directly and we’ll grab it and see if it’s a browser issue or an implementation issue.
