Thanks for the report, 93. You need to hard refresh. It'll fix that.
Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
Also -> Amazon link
. Click that when you go to buy something on Amazon and MVS gets a kickback.

To those of you like me who use a smartphone and can't stand the new super bright :shock: washed out :shock: look. I found the answer! Go to the settings and put the phone in night mode and the eye straining :shock: washed out :shock: look :shock: goes away and this is what MVS looks like. I think in night mode makes MVS look great and easy on the eyes. :P June

That's a really great solution, June. I'd make a night theme, but I don't want to troubleshoot/support two (or 3 etc) themes. One's hard enough.

"quoted by" in the notifications doesn't show the user name.

Also the user name is shown twice on every post.

See screenshots. Chrome on Android 9 using a Nokia 8.

Seems Samsung does something right with that night mode :-)

Seems to have done the trick. Probably the first time ever I've done so, just waiting will usually sort it out ,:-)

Now the significantly larger hamburger menu shows as well. Nice.

Really all the colors in the text on the black background looks better. I wish I had discovered night mode long ago. You don't have to do a thing, just the users of Android who want to try it just need to turn it on and the phone does everything! I definitely am not modern computer literate. My note 8 Samsung does all I need in my case. Though for the record I do still have my IBM Totable 386 with its Windows 3 and orange screen down in a closet. So I technically do own a computer. Haven't turned it on in years :lol: June
