Well I got 2 PMs today and both dated November 1, not the 9th. So something is being squirrelly!!

Also still not seeing any comments on news articles. News articles says there are X comments but none being shown.

I reported it to our developers, but, it's probably better to just get used to the mobile web view on toucharcade.com - Remember you can always add a bookmark to your homescreen which works pretty similarly to the app.

They might do though, have some faith Eli! They probably should consider it, comments seem to be far lower than usual since app users can't see nor post right now.

Curiously, quality of the comments have gone up as people can't just rapid fire junk via mobile anymore.

Well I have been unable to post comments since mid July. Never got an answer as to why since I was on vacation for 1 month prior. So can I get an answer?

They could, just it's a pain so at least there's that bonus.

I think I'll stick with th app while it exists, you all did a fantastic job building a platform that is perfect for tracking and reading TA news. The site doesn't compare, e.g. Being able to "dig down" through links then go back to the surface level is great, as is unread stories being tagged. It really sucks you got screwed by Apple on this.

Hopefully you can at least bring comment viewing back, if not writing. Sure, there was lots of junk, but it was nice wading through the interesting opinions. It feels a little sterile without them.

The current problem with comments just started last Friday or Saturday. Apple did not release any updates in the last few days, so I can't figure out why this problem should suddenly appear? Did TA do anything or make any adjustments in something late last week that could have caused this?

I was wondering if it was just me. I don't have a PC sadly so the app is what I always use. It's really odd because I can see and post in some new game threads but things like the "tonight's games" post I can't read or post anything.
I love this app so much. It's just way more convenient than safari.
