It seems kinda weird that that's a tap menu at all - I don't think anything would be lost if you had to long press to copy the url of an image.

I think I intentionally set all taps to bring up the menu and I really like the menu, but a long press menu would be a good compromise.

The nice thing about this would be that it would eliminate the step I have where I long press the image every. loving. time. to bring up that menu and it never works.

and the top ten juiced up players

i seem to remember one of the devs saying it needed to be a tap for some reason? i would prefer it be long-press as well. maybe the "no image options when the image is in an anchor tag" problem could be corrected at the same time

I've used Awful for years but just now noticed I have no idea how to post a new thread or filter by post tags. Is either of these possible

You can not make a new thread

Someone actually snuck in a bit of a backdoor, I dunno whether it was server-side or in the app.

If you send a "private message" to "?forumid=219", for example, it'll post a new thread in that forum.

If you're dumb like me, you might don't know this, but if you long press a thread in your Bookmarks, you get a pop up menu with a nice list of options!

I literally just discovered this fact when I did a long press on a thread in an attempt to see the time and date of the last post in it. I was hoping it would work like when you tap the Username area of a post in a thread, and expand with that info.

It didn't, but I do like the other stuff it offers.

I'm getting an issue where trying to view threads is causing a crash. I have tried an assortment of threads and all seem to cause an instant crash. Chrome and the app are up to date and have were updated well before the crashes started. This is on a Pixel 2.

Edit: Clearing my Chrome and Awful cache did not help.

It was updated around the same time as Chrome on March 12. It's currently version 89.0.4389.90.

Same here. Mine worked until sometime between 11:30am-3:30pm EST. I was browsing at lunch but it started doing the same thing yours is by the time school was out. The forums load and the unread post numbers are going up on threads, but as soon as I tap one, it closes.

Pixel 4xl if it matters.

What's really weird is that it's not a full crash for me, more like the app goes into the background, but still seems to be running. It does sort of reopen if I go to it from the running apps menu, but it go back to the forum list. Can't view the thread either way. Other apps also seem to have similar issues, so this exact problem may just be me.

I can view threads just fine on a Pixel 5. So not a global issue, at least?

Having a similar issue where I can navigate the forums but not open threads. On an S20 with Android 11. I'm also having a similar issue with the "Out of Milk" app but their website it also down so not sure what all is related here. Restarting my phone doesn't help at all.

I mean, if you're a successful actress and you go out of the house in a skirt and without underwear, knowing that paparazzi are just waiting for opportunities like this and that it has happened many times before, then there's really nobody you can blame for it but yourself.

Just wanted to inform you that the version installed from Google Play crashes whenever I try to open a PM someone sent me. No other issues that I've noticed.

Idk whether this is just my system, but a mildly annoying experience I'm having:
1. Play media with sound in a thread (usually an embedded tweet or mp4)
2. Swipe right to return to bookmarks without pausing media. Sound from media is stopped
3. Use Android square button (? The app list one) to switch to another app, then again to switch back to Awful
Expected: bookmarks list, no audio
Actual: bookmarks list, audio from embedded media from previous thread

Also, would it be possible to not have bookmarks bump to the top of the list if the only new post is from someone I've ignored?

Ty for your hard work on this app I've wasted SO much time on it

I love the app, but I hate switching the post font size. Is there anyway it could be a dial instead of a slider?

I'm mostly bouncing between 25 for daytime and 27 for when I go to bed without my specs, which is a pretty big difference imo. The slider in place is pretty finicky. As someone who uses it frequently it seems like too small a slider with too many variables.

Love the app to death besides that! For real!
