      Cortex rox!

      My wish list for v 1.0.3:

      -- Being able to create articles from my old ass iPhone 6. The "Cortex Menu" but still doesn't work. Not clickable n my phone so I can't create any Cortex stuff on my phone. I wanna be able to post articles in the evening when I am just on my phone. :)

      -- On MY FEED, show how many Cortex Points each article has gotten. Maybe a little icon right under the article's photo in that empty space. So instantly you see "I got tonnes of points for writing an article!" and "this article got more points than this article". If you somehow reused a smaller version of the "splotch" graphic from the Carnage Report page that would be cool. Write the point on the splotch.

      -- Same as above but on the ALL POSTS feed.

        I’m trying to figure out what got nerfed if everything gives you more points now.

        Also: what heathen uses light mode?

      Would I be heavily misusing cortex if I do a bicycle maintenance article?

        Nope, it's for whatever you want to make posts about! (Within reason, porn dumps and whatnot probably won't fly)

        Nope. Cortex has the same community guidelines as the Chatty.

        If you include a link to Queen - Bicycle Race it's not.
