Having harder time than before adding in pictures and getting to my galleries right now.

Used to be able to access media from the profile silhouette from the top bar, but now need to go to my personal profile, click on media link from there and add photos from there.

Similarly adding photos to a post I need to go to above and copy the image address from my album and post that in the insert image link option rather than being able to pull straight from my galleries.

Though maybe there is an easy way to do this that I am not seeing.
There is a little camera icon next to the smiley icon in the reply editor. Click on that, and it will allow you to embed from your gallery.

Thanks, did not see that earlier today for some reason. Is it possible to get a quick link to our galleries in the profile sub panel like we used to have?

Are you not seeing "Galleries" in the navbar next to Buy&Sell?

Prompted to enable push notifications. Will I regret enabling? what is the effect of this?

You'll get a little notification alert when people respond to posts or send you messages via conversation. If you don't like it you can always disable it.

This is a small thing, but I've noticed that when a blocked member quotes you now, you get an email notification, whereas before you didn't.
Further on that @LA Guy , I think an interesting feature might be to make blocks two-way (with control going to whoever initiates it, of course).

Right now, if D blocks M, M can still read and quote D, who (buggily) just got emailed and reminded of M. This is unpleasant to D and serves to reinforce how little power blocking gives them.

If once blocked, M cannot read D's posts, or see that they exist, the utility of the forum is reduced for M with every person they annoy, eventually driving them away. A sort of evolutionary feedback loop against the trolls and the impolite, without the drastic, arbitrary, and occasionally error-prone (and therefore cautiously applied) need for active moderation.

The method is relatively more robust than using downvote counts or ratios as signals for shadow and full bans. Downvote counts can be abused by crowds (as can the report button), whereas having reading privileges withdrawn is driven only by the creator of the interesting material, who is less likely to be on the forum for abusive reasons.

While a very interesting idea, this little bit of coding is in the core functionality of the forum software and unfortunately beyond our control.

Cheers,

Fok.

I dont see a button in the first message box that provides that option. Atleast not on my end..
It's probably because edits are limited to one day after the post, and the post you're editing is more than one day old. I think I have a solution, if you can respond to my PM.

Is this a recent addition? Does it apply to all posts? What happens if one feels like Vox that one should delete one's more controversial older postings?

It has always been this way for all posts. If there are old posts that need deleting, people are welcome to contact a mod and request deletion.

Why is there a bookmark and lightning bolt icon on mobile that seem to both take me to the same place? Desktop I only see the bookmark.

Did you click on both of them and get to the same place? Lightning bolt takes me to "What's New", and the bookmark takes me to "watched threads."
