Seeing "Subscribe!" in top right of desktop app, but I am subscribed

Unfortunately, I'm not sure if this is due to v0.0.102 but I'm suddenly seeing "Subscribe!" in the top right. I tried entering my code from January but it said it is invalid. Syncing still works between Desktop and iOS so maybe it's just a UI thing?

Spectrum is alive again! Post a new thread or ask anything quick in here!

A while back we moved to reddit but I've noticed that it's not nearly as easy for people to quickly post a question if they don't already have a reddit account. There's no reason we can't have both communities open and people can use whichever they prefer. Eventually it would be…

Syncing

Not able to sync with my iphone. It keeps asking me if I'm on the same network, which I am. Tried it on both the .97 and the Beta version to no avail. Tried reseting the sync, and again to no avail. Any ideas?

Thoughts on moving to reddit?

I wanted to get this discussion going: I want to move this community to reddit. What do you all think about that? I like Spectrum as a lightweight forum but I keep finding myself wanting to either be more like a real-time chat like Slack or more like a fully-featured forum like…
