I use my samsung s2 and my Android tablet. A Mobile site would be good. An app would be excellent. Have you thought of using something like tapatalk forum app?

Nook color tablet
iPhone 4S with iOS 7

I access the site with both.

The iPhone seems to be ok for the most part...I have not run into any issues as far as posts malfunctioning, or the forums/website malfunctioning. However, I think a more mobile website would be good in the regards of possibly putting the key features in more accessible locations...because you so have to do quite a bit of scrolling to get anywhere. However, some mistakes that some mobile websites have, that I have found, is putting too many menus that you have to click to find where you want to go.

The Nook has a few other issues that I have found. The site is quite small, as it displays it as a computer would. If you put the Nook on landscape, it helps a bit, but it also makes links malfunction as sometimes the labels overlap each other. As far as posting...this is where the real problem lies. When you put in any of the emoticons by clicking on them, it sends you to the top of the post ad you have to scroll back to where you where. However, if the post is long enough that it starts moving the box, if you get moved from where the last typed character is, you cannot get back to it. it just makes the screen jump if you try to click or move the cursor down and so you cannot get to where you were. does that make sense? I have not noticed any other issues...hopefully that is it. :smile:

I exclusively use my android phone and (as you can see by my post count) have no difficulties at all other than typing the posts in. But that is not a site issue.. It is a stupid fat finger on a small keyboard issue.

BTW. Love this place!

And.. I STILL don't like spam and do not want your magic hair tonic!

Neither are we (like spam). :wink:

I took care of it, thank you.

By the way, one can report spam by pressing the "report this post" button above the post itself.

Is that the exclamation point doohickey? I guess I would have known that but I employ the dude rule of never reading the instruction manual.

I think it is somewhat ironic that the spam was on this thread..

I think the best thing and easiest thing to make the mobile website better is to simply make an app which is specifically for use on a mobile or tablet like once I joined the website the first thing I did was to see if you have an app in the App Store but you don't not only will having an app be easier but it also means that when you are typing a reply you do not have to continuously zoom in and out so that the writing isn't too small or the button isn't too big. I use an iPhone and Have iOS 7 the latest one on Apple

I am unable to figure out how to log in on my mobile device. I am using a apple phone and I use it a lot more than my laptop. I have a hard time figuring out how to log in anyways on my computer. Although, I am new to the website. I did notice my main problem on my iPhone is being able to log in or find the place to log in.

I use my nook hd plus which is an android tablet. I haven't had any issues thus far and I have been using it for about a year now.
