I knew I wasn't going to perform well this time... anyway, thanks @Mi-Amigo for this last great summer activity on the community and well done everyone!

@Mi-Amigo I've noticed you had to adapt the way you post the answers and awards, do you reckon it was an issue with the community platform?


Thanks @RafaC 

The issue is with the Community platform.

I did a test - copied question from quiz and attempted to paste in Google search, It worked.

But when copying text, it won`t paste on forum.

When I came back on and replied to posts, I did test again on forum - and problem seemed to be solved

- but now the problem is back and I can`t copy and paste. 

btw - I cleared caches, hstory, etc and all the usual things which have been suggested when problems with other issues in the past, and nothing has solved this. Note - it isn`t a problem when I try and copy and paste elsewhere.

 Typically a problem arises on a Friday so nothing is gonna get done until next week. 

Annoying - as it means so much more work for me with posting the initial WRQ and WHD threads and then with the results - not happy.
