A note on the continued usefulness of Brave -

  • There is a bug with the post editor. Images pasted from other websites from your clipboard will automatically use the [img] tag instead of uploading a copy as an attachment. Please manually save the image, upload it to the site, and then insert it as a thumbnail instead if you experience this.

    The [img] should essentially never be used outside of chat. It does not save disk space on the server because we use an image proxy to protect your IP address and to ensure people do not rely on bad third party services like Imgur for image hosting. I hope to have a fix from XF soon. I REALLY WISH THEY'D HOTFIX THIS SO I CAN REMOVE THIS NOTICE.

I started Brave today and on the main screen there was some menu for a program called Binance. You can turn it off on the preferences tab, but I never asked for this. Is Brave becoming like every other browser and adding a bunch of shit you don't need because there is some unwritten international law that you can't have a browser that is not actively ruining your browsing experience?

The below article is not very promising. Bloatware incoming?

If rewards are enabled, the new tab page will sometimes display an ad. You do get rewards for those.

Usually it's just a themed background image and an ad in the corner where it would normally display the photographer credit.

Is the site no longer showing up as being verified to receive tips for anyone else, or is that just an issue on my end?

Huh, mine shows verified on both. I did a quick search and it's recommended to try this to fix:
"Once quick thing to try is disabling Rewards, closing the app, clearing it from system memory (killing the process), relaunching and re-enabling Rewards."
Hope that helps!

It didn't work for me.

On another note, apparently there's a glitch with claiming earned rewards this month. Brave gave me the message to claim, but when I tried to go through the process, it wouldn't finish the task. At least my reward is still there, though. Some people's rewards have disappeared. I found a post about it saying they are working on it.

Sorry your bucks haven't arrived yet, Null.

I'm having this issue and looked into it. if you're on mobile it's supposed to be fixed soon.

An update regarding verification status on mobile devices.

We are currently rolling out some major upgrades to the verified publishers and creators list that mobile devices use to check whether a site is verified. As part of this maintenance, we have temporarily disabled the verified creators and publishers list for mobile devices.

What you may see: Some users on mobile may notice that no websites or channels are appearing as verified, or that newer sites are not being detected as verified when they should be.

Once these upgrades are complete, verification status detection on mobile will return to normal.

We thank you for your patience as we work to improve the Mobile Rewards experience, and we will keep you updated on our progress.

Thank you,
The Brave Rewards Team
