  2. Since it has happened MULTIPLE times now, I want to be very clear about this. You do not get to abandon an account and create a new one. You do not get to pass an account to someone else and create a new one. If you do so anyway, you will be banned for creating sockpuppets.

    I post from mobile a lot, which is probably a mistake. Autocorrect tends to garble what I type, especially tabs. But I think that's an Android issue, not something you can fix.

    What is a thing I hope you can fix is cropping of avatars on mobile. I uploaded a 1:2 aspect ratio image as an avatar thinking I could use the top half for the square image, but poking it with my finger does nothing of the sort.

    I realize this is a minor issue that could be fixed by me using desktop to upload it (and obviously I'll correct it the moment I have access), but it is a bug and thus worth reporting, no matter how minor!

    Actually, as far as I know... all you would need to do is just log in on a computer and you should be able to adjust the avatar without re-uploading it.

    Mobile browsers do have actual limitations such as what you've experienced.

    Yeah, like I said, I'll be doing that once I have access. Power in the building is sporadic lately...

    Mostly I'm wondering if there's some technical solution. There's nothing else I can think of on this site I can't use a mobile browser for; rich text editing and everything works fine, the format reflows...just a minor oversight.
