With the mobile theme now shown to iphone users, the image of the week is not available. One can see the title in big letters, but not the actual image:

Can we have the picture back, please? On this site, it's more than just decoration.

    \$\begingroup\$ They call this a mobile theme? Its pretty bad on the iPhone. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ @dpollitt — and it's identical between all the sites, making it hard to tell them apart. But that's another issue. (Well, except for how the photo would help with that.) \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ I thought this was just a temporary solution. I REALLY REALLY hope it is, because this is neither very functional or good looking... \$\endgroup\$

As I understand it from talking to the designer, Jin, the iPhone theme is common for all Stack sites, although that might not be the final theme.

I can see how removing the image may be helpful for mobile users with restricted download quotas/speeds though.
