Quick poll on how you use the site

Unread post by admin » November 7th, 2011, 8:59 am

Please choose an option - we're working out the number of users that would browse the site on mobile devices.

One of the biggest problems we have with Mobiles is the large images that are posted in threads will not display very well (and be very slow!) on a mobile.

I use all three.
The forum works well on IPAD i feel, although with private messages it hides the "Port Reply" button at the top left of the text box.

All three for me too, with 'computer' being the one that gets the LEAST use!

You aren't wrong about large images being an issue! Another thing that is a real pain on the smaller screens & 'phone is the number of people who use 'Quote' every time they reply, even when it is to the last post in the thread & all they are saying is something like 'X2' or even worse, quoting the last reply that quoted the post before it too!

Computer for me. As for imagine sizes there already to small as it is. If you browse using a mobile you shouldnt expect everyone to post smaller images cause of your small screen! Making the image size any smaller would be an absolute joke. :crazy:

Well now that we know the majority use a computer to veiw the forum can we please gear the forum so its best performance is on computers! So increase the image size and stop editing quotes out of peoples posts. Its becoming a joke with moderators just editing quotes out of your posts cause they want to. And NO they were not in breech of forum rules!!

All three for me too. Prefer the computer, but if its been used ill use the iPad. When i'm out or bored at work ill use my phone. Using the phone to reply to threads is a pretty tedious affair though.

Cheers,
