    Not sure if it's because of Chrome or not... Sometimes when I try to give an Ovation, nothing happens when I click the button even repeatedly. Other times I click the Ovation button on another post and it works.

    Also, sometimes when replying on a thread, the Editor shows the Font and Style, Emojies, etc. options at the top. Other times there are no options at all, just a box to enter text. Not sure why.

    There is a limit on the number of ovations you can give in a day. Maybe you hit your limit and that's why you can't give anymore.

    As for the editor I'm not sure on that, it has happened to me before and I have generally just gone back and then restarted my reply after that's is been fine.

    Ok thanks. Generally, the Ovation problem happens when I haven't even given any for a while. Don't think I went close to the limit. If I can get logged in in another browser I will try on the same posts I was unable to earlier.

    I've seen the same problems with chrome, explorer and on the iPad, but I cannot get it to fail on a regular basis, so I just refresh the screen until it's working again.

    I use google chrome and get chunks of other byc pages blocking the text on any page I try to use. :( They are stuck in place and I can't move them. Refreshing just moves them around on the page, mainly.

    Hey, thanks for the note!

    Which version of Chrome are you using and on which operating system?

    Can you post a screenshot?

    Any other members experiencing this issue?

    This is happening to me, too, but I just thought it was a redraw bug of my graphics card. Pretty easy to repeat, so I'll get a screen shot the next time I'm on the desktop. I'll also reply with the version I'm using.

    Yes this has started happening to me, too. I use Google Chrome as my browser.

    I have Windows 7 Ultimate and Google Chrome Version 47.0.2526.73 m.

    Great feedback!

    If y'all could post a screenshot or two and also best-guess when it started (like after an upgrade, or all of a sudden on x day at y time) that would help!
