For the last week or so the Members Gallery formatting is all wonky.  The comments are all different sizes.  Screen shot below.  It also now shows only two rows across nstead of 4.

We are trying to get the gallery to pass Google's mobile friendly standards. We have two main issues - display is too wide, and text is too small. We are still experimenting. We are not done yet. Unfortunately it may mean it will be a little less pretty on a computer screen.

Ah, ok.  I'm usually on Forum with a tablet or laptop.  Rarely a phone.

Unfortunately the world is going mobile and Google search engine indexing and rank is based to a significant degree on mobile phones usability.

As Charles has mentioned on another thread, now coins are spread out over several pages and only 2 rows wide in the personal gallery.  Makes it more cumbersome to navigate.

Right now, our priority must be on achieving Google's "mobile usability" requirements. It is a big challenge. Expect more changes, some not entirely pleasing. After we have everything working to their standards, then we can work on improving appearances. I expect this will take some time. It is challenging and expensive.

Google's "mobile usability" is essential to our search rank, which is essential to maintaining sales and paying our staff and keeping up this website.

Dear Joe

Sadly I have to state: Browsing through the gallery is a torture. Instead 3 pages as before there are now 54 pages! No trace of clarity.

A pity

We will get them back the way they were. It will just take a little time.

It looks like the gallery displays are up to a 3x format....perfectly acceptable, IMO, if that's the best that can be achieved due to Google's requirements.

We hope to have them display flexibly, to the maximum appropriate for the screen - eventually.

Joe,

We all understand that you have to please the 800 pound gorilla in the room.
