  • Problems with the mobile version of Flag-Me
    limited/no functionality of the mobile website
    Due to a PHP 7 upgrade there's only limited / no functionality of the mobile version of flag-me.info (http://m.flag-me.info). The migration of the mobile website from PHP to Python in the next few days will solve this problem.
