However I’m not convinced this is a TLP bug.
Cannot reproduce on site with only TLP as plugin. It doesn’t occur on Reviews - Rideables for example. (Though admittedly that’s not got as many topics)
Also, as a quick check, what if Latest on HSP is turned into Tiles? Does that then exhibit the same problem?
What if you turn off Tiles for the Category? Does the problem go away? Can you turn off Ratings in that Category? What happens?
What happens when TLP is the only plugin on HSP? Can you demo that? What happens with all the plugins except Ratings?
The solution may simply be to not use Tiles on mobile where there are so many other plugins enabled. It may be you can use it in a category, but not with Ratings.
