1) Are you using the "mobile" version of the editor? Or, the desktop version?

2) Are you uploading the image directly into the post, or is the image hosted outside the post?

3) And of course, the usual: mobile device? browser? version?

1) I'm using the mobile version.

2) I'm uploading the image directly.

3) Galaxy S9+ Android, Chrome V 81.0.4044.96 (I just updated and retested before posting this) 

So - one possibility (without me breaking away and spending a ton of time investigating this), is that the image you're attempting to upload is too big. There is a cap of 500k for image sizes (and even that may get reduced in the very near future). If you are using the desktop version, uploading a file greater than 500k will cause a "Your file is too big!!" message to appear and won't allow you to upload - unfortunately, I was not able to get that same message to appear in the "mobile" version of the editor (this is a 3rd party app, using 3rd party plug-ins - so there's only so many weeds I'm willing to stumble through, for something like this!!!). Even without the message though, the cap does remain in place - so attempting to upload a file larger than 500k might appear to be successful, but the storage function will simply drop that image if it's too big...

...can you confirm the size of the image you're attempting to upload? If you have access to a desktop (or can hit the "display as desktop" link at the very, very bottom of any page when viewing the site on your mobile device so that it can emulate "desktop" on your mobile device) - can you try to upload the same image using the "desktop" editor?

Let me know how you make out...

Edit: Sorry Talon, I completely forgot to respond, but I appreciate the feedback.

I just now tried a smaller image, and it works fine, so I assume the problem was on my end.

Hey Talon, I was on this news story https://www.vgchartz.com/article/443153/2k-partnering-with-humble-bundle-to-raise-money-for-the-covid-19-relief-efforts/ and upvoted the comment to +4. I left, and almost immediately returned to make a comment of my own, and saw my upvote was missing, and it was at 0. I upvoted to +4 once again, and decided to leave and return, to see if my upvote would disappear again. Nope. Now it's at +8. :) I realized you likely have more pressing issues to deal with, but wanted to bring this to your attention. On mobile/android.

@TalonMan has added a Ribbon of the article type to the "Latest Stories" section on the front page. It was something that was previously used years ago. 

Below is what it looks like:

Yeah, looks great. Takes some getting used to at first, but it is more efficient!
