Where has Intercom gone?

Hello, I want to start  an EA chapter at City University London. Please let me know how to go about it.

How about a tag for environmental problems? Now it's only climate change. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planetary_boundaries

For one, I don’t see any intercom. (I’m on an iPhone).

For two, I wanted to report a bug that whenever writing a comment, the UI zooms in so that the comment box takes up the whole width. Then it never un-zooms.

Another bug, while writing a comment while zoomed in and scrolling left to right, the scroll bar appears in the middle of the text.

A third bug, when I get a notification that somebody has responded to my post, and view it using the drop down at the upper right, then try to re-use that menu, the X button is hidden, off the screen to the right. Seems like a similar mobile over-zoom thing.

Do you have a preference on whether to contact you or contact JP Addison (the programmer of the EA Forum) for technical bugs?

Please contact me for those, and I'll forward them to JP as appropriate. Thanks!

Where would you like bug reports to go?

Reporting via Intercom or email is fine -- whatever's easiest for you!

Hi, can you please tell people to stop posting inane, distracting and visually disturbing gifs in the comments? Like in a comment on Gideon‘s article on complexity and x-risks. Thanks.
