I've had ordinary posts come in landscape making it very boring to read...Yes, this is a known issue with apple products and the site. It has to do with how you took the photo. If you took the photo with the volume buttons pointed up, it's technically "upside down". Some software auto corrects the issue, reorienting it to the proper direction. The site however can't figure it out, and the result is the sideways picture. If you take the photo with the volume buttons pointed down, this should rectify the issue.
Unsure of what you mean, though that's because I'm part of the admin team that only comes to the site when something breaks. If something is broken there, where is this thread supposed to be?
