Do you no longer get notifications when someone @'s you here? I get them for when my posts are quoted, or of course when a watched thread gets a new post, etc, but I would've thought the whole point of @'ing someone is to alert them of your naming them.

They've only rarely worked in the past, and seem to be totally broken at the moment.

If I'm in a forum and enter a thread, then hit "back", I'm returned to the top of the forum page, not at the thread I just left. This is in safari and it never used to do this.

Whenever I try to post a picture from my phone, I get an error message that the file is too big. I have an iPhone, no idea what I should do to post directly. What I normally do is email the Pictor myself and then post a png version from my laptop but it’s a bit of a pain in the neck.

I have tried using the ‘Attach files’ link, the picture icon in the toolbar, and just pasting the photo in. No luck on any of these.

Any ideas?

This is the piece I was getting wrong. I actually did try that this morning but it was on a screen shot that I took of a picture instead of the original picture I had taken. The screen shot only has the 1 size instead of the smaller options that the original has available.

Thanks!

Is there a way to mark an entire thread as "ignored" or "automatically read"? I want to know if there are unread posts in the Port Cellar, for example, but I might not care about a particular thread there, so I want any new posts there to not cause the forum to be highlighted when I view the main page.
