    How do we vote for a caption contest photo submission on a mobile?

    Is there a way to do this now? It's been almost a year and I still would really like to vote for photos from my phone and hope I'm not missing something.

    Not when I click on the photo, per thread instructions.

    I've still been been trying to vote on photos in the caption photo thread and I still can't find a way to do it on my phone in mobile view. If it's switched to desktop view, the option appears but it's so tiny it's difficult touch the right place more than once. If I zoom in, the option moves off the screen and I can't pull it back. I haven't found a way to do it at all on the iPhone app.

    I know it's a month & a half early this year, but I'm hoping if I ask once a year someone will eventually have an answer without me bumping my own thread.

    I have just checked on mobile version of BYC and the thumbs up button was visible, do you not see this icon circled in red? ~

    Thank you for your reply! I see it on threads and I see it where it's supposed to be on selected photos. It's perfect on threads, but not on the photos. It's tiny and difficult to tap correctly without exiting the view. Here it is on my computer & on my phone:

    You don't need to open the photo to vote. You can vote for it by giving a thumbs on the post the pic appears in so you should be able to do this mobile version of BYC. Hope this helps :D

    Thank you. The beginning of the photo submission post states the photo needs to be opened to vote, so that definitely needs to be changed.

    Thanks for bringing that to my attention, I can't say I had noticed that but it's been a while since I read the first post :oops:
    I shall find some clarification out on if they have to be voted for in the thread or on the actual picture.
