Template #15 Issue #1
Jun 7, 2017
<pre> which is wrapped in <blockquote> replaced above <blockquote> / check my template
Sam
Looks like nested pre inside blockquote is not supported. bad design.
Accepted by admin
Yes, nested <pre> inside <blockquote> is not supported in the IV format.

It would be better to not generate an IV than to generate an IV with corrupted, missing, or misplaced content.
Template #17 Issue #1

code is not where it should be.
Accepted by admin
Template #18 Issue #1
Jun 7, 2017
<pre> inside <blockquote> converted to regular text, looks bad. there is no way to display this blocks correct in IV, so they should be unsupported
Declined by admin
Template #20 Issue #1
Jun 7, 2017
IMG is located ahead of its container. Construction should be fixed if its possible or unsupported.
Declined by admin
Template #21 Issue #1
Jun 7, 2017
line break is missing
Pavel T.
No idea why - ul inside ul, must work.
Your decision (add special symbols before <li> and <br> after) seems incorrect.

Nested lists are regular situation in HTML and this problem must be fixed not by us.
Accepted by admin
Formatting for the nested list is lost. Either no IV should be generated then or some workaround (which looks good on all devices) should be used.
Template #22 Issue #1

The formatting of the nested list is lost on mobile devices
Sam
Which mobile devices have you check? it's fine on my iPhone 6.
Accepted by admin
Formatting is lost.
Template #22 Issue #2

Five spacewraps at the enf of blockquote?..
Sam
Checked your version, looks much messing. I don't think br is a valid issue, whitespace helps user scanning quickly, not stopping them.
Declined by admin
Not a critical issue
Template #25 Issue #1
Jun 13, 2017
To telegram Admin:

When somebody reported my template here, https://instantview.telegram.org/contest/howtogeek.com/template22/issue1/, no detail report was given, which mobile? I've checked both iOS/Android, they works as I expected. Please give me more detail.
Declined by admin
This method is reasonable since it does work in both iOS and Android Telegram.
Template #25 Issue #2
Jun 17, 2017
Text is out of context because of <cite></cite>. My template handles it better.
Accepted by admin
Template #26 Issue #1
Jun 18, 2017
Can't easily separate between the two paragraphs, should add one more br between them.
Pavel T.
<br> exists, it's separate text blocks. This is a non-issue.
Accepted by admin
Unfortunately, this is a valid issue, since <p> will be stripped from <blockquote>, and single <br> will cause the entire blockquote to seem like one big block of text, rather than separate paragraphs.

The telegram.org/blog sample IV template also specifically adds double <br> within blockquote. You can see the code here:

Pavel T.
I'm sorry, but in a lot of previous issues on other templates you said that it's not critical issue.
For example: https://instantview.telegram.org/contest/macdigger.ru/template24/issue1/
Accepted by admin
This is a valid issue. Template 28 properly supports blockquote line breaks.
Template #28 Issue #1
Jul 13, 2017
This article doesn't seem to contain any unsupported materials.
Declined by admin
It appears that the layout of the website was changed after the template was submitted. Since the template would have won the contest, had our admins been able to sort through all the issues immediately after the contest was closed, we will decline this issue.

We kindly ask you to support the new layout after the winners are announced.
