  3. Sometime in July I noticed that I stopped getting any comments on challenge entries. I also noticed that for some reason my pin descriptions are only showing on mobile devices not computers. I am not sure if that is effecting my entries. I am not sure where to reach out to ask about this. Can you please confirm that my submission are being entered? I will put egomba on the title of my submission this week. thank you!
