If i reply to a post sometimes it doesn’t show up as a reply to that post. And you can’t see a reply chain. Think this only started happening today. Doesn’t seem to affect notifications.

Yes! Hadn’t noticed this before but happened a few times on mobile yesterday (i.e. earlier today UK time).

I’m just reading the daily thread right now and this memo confirms that the mod squad are already aware of the situation:
