What happened to text copy on iPad?

Sometime in about the last week, the ability to copy text, say, from a comment or a post, has been lost on my iPad. If I try to copy text, I am confronted with only the choice to copy an image—an image that appears to be the blue background. I am no longer able to select or copy text in either Safari or Chrome on iOS (iPad in my case). I have tested several other sites and this frustrating deficit seems to be limited to metafilter. Have somehow, after years of participation with iPad somehow lost my way?

IRL alerts aren't working

Granted with the pandemic, there have been many fewer IRL events, but given IRL alerts aren't currently working, shouldn't that be noted on the IRL page? Right now, anyone who checked out the IRL page would think they were working. [more inside]

Back button with iPhone 11 snaps to top of AskMeFi page

When I am under the fold and then swipe to the right to go back to the main page, it snaps back to the top of the page instead of where I left off. So I need to scroll down to find where I was. It doesn’t happen with other MeFi pages or other pages in general, just AskMeFi. I use Safari. It’s so annoying I often just give up! Please help. [more inside]

Issues with Recent Activity page on mobile Safari?

When I load this page, regardless of settings, it jumps back and forth between two apparently presentations and is totally unusable — you can’t read or click anything. Is this just me, or is it a broader problem? My iPad is new and up to date.

Flagged!

Am I the only person who keeps accidentally almost flagging posts instead of favoriting them? [more inside]

Impossible. Perhaps the archives are incomplete.

I'd always thought MeFi site searches were pretty much comprehensive, but last night I came across several search terms that were clearly missing content. Has anyone else noticed this behavior in the past, or could this be a new bug? [more inside]
