Is this new, and is it permanent? I could use my phone to vote recently, though I prefer not to. I can vote on my tablets. I like using my desktop for a final run through. Just curious.

I thought it was never allowed so you must have found before a way around this.

Nothing has changed recently, so it's not "new". Officially we currently block voting on images from tablets and phones. That some folks seem to be able to do so is a bit of a mystery, and I suppose it has to do with operating systems, at least in some cases. For example, Penny has a tablet running Windows and she can vote with that, although she does not. I have a tablet running Android and I cannot vote with that, even though it's a sizeable enough, and high-enough resolution, tablet that I'd be OK voting with it if it came to that.

This whole issue is being looked into as we adapt the site to modern internet usage, but I'm not part of the tech team that is working on this and I just have sort of an overview on what's being done. As far as I know, no decision has yet been made on whether to enable tablet and/or phone voting at this point. It's a complex issue, and probably not one that's easily addressed by, say, polling the membership, because the goal here is to bring in new members, and making the site mobile-friendly is a major component of that.

Weird. My phone is android. My tablets are also android and I can vote with them. Maybe a recent update on the phone tweaked something. Interesting.

My tablet just did a major Android update, I'll take a look and see whether I've been unleashed. But for SURE nothing the recoding team has done is intersecting with the current site, and it never will. There will be a whole new iteration of the site on a new server when the changeover is finished.

There ya go... My latest Android version allows me to vote from my tablet: Samsung Galaxy Tab 4. Curiously, I can only vote in upright orientation! not in landscape...

I have always been able to vote on my IPad Pro but never on my IPhone, not that I would ever vote on my phone.

I can vote on my Android tablet, but not my Android phone. I thought it had to do with resolution and/or screen size. At one time I couldn't do it from a tablet, so I thought there had been an update to allow it.

... I don't do it, but I can
