    A very minor thing, but does the forum have a logo? I personally have the bookmark bar constantly open at the top of chrome (between open tabs and webpage view), and to save space I delete the text in the name field, leaving only a tiny icon which is the logo of the bookmarked web page. I've got this forum bookmarked and so it'd be awesome to have a logo :D

    A competition for the forum users, perhaps? :D

    I should add straight away that I am no graphic designer either!

    Certain instances have occurred where uploading images either onto the forum or through conversations caused the page to freeze with the progress bar just going round.

    The issue was caused by an incorrect SQL statement in the database and should now be resolved.

    Some users reported issues with logging into the forum with TapTalk. I have now installed the latest version of TapTalk which should have addressed these issues.

    Not sure if anyone else has this problem, but when viewing the mobile site from my phone, I can't find an option to log in anywhere. Perhaps I'm just being dopey? I don't use Tapatalk as I can't get on with it, and the mobile site works great. I just can't find an obvious place to log in without clicking on the sign up link first which is right at the bottom. Perhaps a simple "log in" link at the top somewhere is needed?

    I'm using a Galaxy S6 on Marshmallow 6.0.1. I've tried using the stock Internet app but it's the same if I use Chrome. It looks like a link to log in is there for a fraction of a second but then it disappears.

    It's not really too much of an issue as I can click on the sign up link which let's me log in from there. I just thought it was odd not having a log in link. Turns out there is but I'm just awkward :D
