you are failing at pictures, that is happening. smile.gif

The image automatically resizes to fit the width of the forum.

Cheers,

Excellent news about the mobile forum. In regards to the quoted part: If I'm not mistaken there are two my post 'buttons' when on the forum page. One is approached via the forums drop down menu and one via the New posts drop down menu on the right side of the screen. Both require mouse over which I at least have not been able to get to work with the one touch screen device I own: the HTC DHD. I remember the same problem with the often used 'My posts' button. Since then you've made that one a 'hard button'. Thanks for the effort, by the way. It is appreciated.

One other thing, for the mobile platform, it would be nice if it was optional to use with a mobile device, for those who are happy with the current layout, and want to keep using that.

Hmmm... that seems reasonable. I'll see if we can do this. However, nearly all resources are being poured into the drive to bring out the fully mobile site, which will alleviate a the problems people have now (see CDFS's comment.) The mobile version of the site will make navigating very simple. And I'm sure that most of you will agree with me that it's about fucking time. So, yes, I'll push for this, but there is a much higher priority target on the immediate horizon.

You do know that if you click anywhere off of the gallery frame, the full-sized images are dismissed though, yes?

Thanks and yes.

+1. Being forced to use a "mobile" layout is one of my top #firstworldproblems

do you guys not use tapatalk when forum-ing from your smart phone?

will be very interesting to see if the mobile site alleviates the need for tapatalk.

You have to mouse over the Forum button to get the new post button. I've never once used the My Posts button, but use the New Posts button all the time. Listen, its not the end of the world. But it was so much easier on the old site when you didn't have to bother to get the mouse correctly over a button, or wait until the page finishes fully loading. You could just slide it in there right after My Posts.

really? i use it all the time.

especially for uploading pics from my phone. all of my pics are taken on my phone. instead of uploading to PB, and then logging in to PB, and then copying the link, and then pasting it into the text box, i just upload it into the thread direct from my phone with tapatalk. easy as pie.

also, when i dont have my computer handy, the load time with tapatalk is far shorter than the internet browser on my phone.

^It mashes quoted post together with newly written post, thus I'm reading everything three times.
post #10826 of 15052
yes, but i find it very easy on my iphone to select the text of the bundled post, and delete it, to cut down on clutter.

To each their own i guess. smile.gif

The thread image gallery is awesome.

If you don't want to moderate the CE, then don't, but have the decency to drop the pretense. Be honest about it. Put a disclaimer up top that says "The CE is an unmoderated space dominated by the worst elements on the Internet. No attempt to make it civil or sane will ever be made, so enter at your own risk."

Blame mordecai.

So, I'm barely a member anymore but...

That photo carousel of the threads that are promoted/deemed most interesting(?) by the mods is... bizarre. There's the one random food dish that taken outside of the context of the thread that is really strange. "How do you want your woman to dress?" (Perfect for a men's clothing site!), Athletic Women Appreciation and one thread that makes sense. May have left one off but it hardly serves as a good way to promote the forum when women's clothing, a creepy thread and two non-sartorial threads are promoted. Maybe there's a way to select better photos or something that would make that feature more useful. The current lineup just isn't working.

Also, there are several threads I want to be able to follow and track when new posts are made but I don't really want to post any more. I can subscribe to them which allows me to track them "easily" with the front page, I just select to show subscribed threads. However, there's no way to get to the latest post, just the first or last post. Am I missing something? I just want a page where all my subscribed threads are located and I can get to the newest post easily, like the "Participated" page.

That's catchy. It also applies to my body.
