idk, i dont have a problem navigating it on my phone. I do it all the time. I just zoom in to select the forum part I want with no issues. When I open a post, it automatically resizes it to fit my phone. Zero issues here...


^^^^ I'm with stupid!!!! (J/K on the stupid part, LOL)

I mainly agree as well. Only issue I have is the jumbo box to type a reply. I often cannot see what I am typing on my phone because the box is so big, it doesn't fit on the screen when I am using the keyboard.


Mine scrolls with what im typing. I dont see what the need for a mobile version will create or change? Like Dave said, more important things on the agenda besides a mobile site. Features that people pay for when they support the site. If I were Dave, and did create a mobile site, it wouldnt be available to people unless they were premium.

I agree with this. It only makes sense.

I don't think I should have to buy a new phone to surf a forum

I really can't think of anything this site needs. I assume that the ignore button was of higher priority.

I didn't expect such resistance to something that is going to be as common as whores in Bangkok in a few years.

But you could buy a laptop to surf the forum. Nobody is saying you need to buy a new phone to surf the forum, if the forum works on it, then there really isnt a problem. I like the full site, im used to the full site. hell i even opt out of mobile sites on all the rest since I know the full site better.

The other part is that you are not premium... To me, if you dont support a forum, why should it support you? its not a personal attack at all, its just a normal valid question.

^^^ to counter your point of a forum not supporting you if you don't support it, maybe adding more features like this for premium might attract more supporters.

But as Dave said, there are more important issues a hand to take care of first. Stability issues, server issue, they all lead up to such things as mobile sites. With out a strong core, it all falls apart. All this takes Dave's time and money.

Also, if you go into anything goes, there is a section called Premium Member Site suggestions. Premium people can go in there to make suggestions about the forum. Where they belong. The more people that put money into it, gets more out of it and gets things moving faster for Dave.

Not him singly, but it bugs me when people come in and complain about something free and want more. Its a free provided site that Dave doesn't demand anything from anyone. He said it is free and it will always be free.

I have suggestion. How about a mobile version of this site? Something like an app? I don't usually buy apps, but if had to pay for this I would.

My main reasoning behind this is I'd like to be able to upload pics directly from my phone to a thread or post.


Thank you.



I found that for you Vince.

Hahahaha I'm not a supporting member? Hmm that 3 years of premium and money I donated for new servers must mean nothing. I didn't reup when it turned into a place for all of the sandy vaginas, possibly people in this thread, to go and have pissing matches. .

I hate this stupid mentality that only paying members get all of the perks, a mobile site is hardly a perk btw. Ya that's how you bring new people into a community. Welcome! Now open your wallet.

Then why visit id thats what it turned into? I still support it regardless of what its become. hell darkstars is not on here much but has a membership until god knows when. Ill probably buy another 3-5 years here too.

Paying members should get the perks, Give the non paying members the incentive to go premium. Such as, editing a post in the case of double posts ^^^. If there was a mobile site and someone was premium, it would def be an incentive to have access to the mobile version of the site for a few dollars a month.


Posted from my phone with no issues.

Would you expect to be flying coach and get all the perks of first class on a flight? I dont either. Id expect to pay for the first class perks.

Edited from my phone as well, no issues.

While my original statement about a mobile site still stands (there are higher priority things that need to get done around here), a mobile site is now no longer at the bottom of my to-do list. As of today I am moving it up a few spots. Still no promises, but I'm seriously looking into it, and from this point on any changes I make I will be sure are future-compatible with a mobile site.

I don't have the time or resources to even consider building an app at this point in time.

I'm leaning against that. I want the site to be as accessible as possible to everyone, and have the perks go to the premium members. A mobile site in my opinion doesn't seem like much of a perk, it seems to me its just something that should be there for everyone. Don't worry though, I've got a few new perks on my to-do list specifically for premium members.

You clicked "preview" the first time, didn't you? I've really got to address that issue ASAP. (for those unaware, if you attach files -currently only available to premium members- then click "preview" instead of "post," those files disappear. If you click back and post, usually you are ok, otherwise you have to re-attach the files before you post.)
