Sam H Arnold, I have been trying to clap for your piece and the claps won’t register. James Finn has been communicating with Medium Staff about the problem of claps through the phone app not registering. I want to make him and them aware of what I noticed here.
James, I clapped 44 times for this piece, left the page, returned, and the claps weren’t there. Did the same multiple times. Then, I noticed when I returned to the page and no claps showed, if I scrolled down the piece the clap hand would be colored indicating claps were there. I then added a couple of claps to see if they added to the total and the total decreased as I added claps! I then left, came back, and all my claps were gone. So, the problem not only exists but how it exists varies making it impossible to know if and when your claps register.
