    Text size in threads and the lack of the boxes is amazing. Looks so good! Also top page nav! Just needs a "jump to page"option.

    I would love to see the jump to top button return as an extra button on the top bar.

    I'll have to see how the pager is being done. That's one area where some of you guys' Homer Car requests might have to be vetoed. I'll look.

    There's probably no sane way to handle it, but gonna echo the folks regarding iPhone landscape browser

    Also it's doing some weird image compression that makes stuff like like hot doo doo butter™

    I'm getting pretty bad latencies since yesterday. Often >15 seconds to load My Bookmarks, and >5 seconds for a thread

    Mobile site seems to have started working in Dolphin HD now (previously couldn't scroll)

    I do get a strange floaty grey box covering the left half of the screen while doing so, but it vanishes when you stop scrolling. Bit odd though.

    Icy, you must be some kind of magician. The tap-and-hold bug with the current tab loading selected links is gone.

    I can take pretty much no credit for these fixes.

    Ah, the illusion is dismantled. The truth is so much less fanciful...

    If I may add my voice to the choir, will there be a change in text colours for the page nav buttons?

    It's almost like magic. We say stuff and it happens. My commute is improved immeasurably, as is waiting in places, as are cigarette breaks. That's a quality of life improvement of 30%.

    Also scrolling seems smoother. This may be my imagination.

    So, uh, while you're back there, could you throw in an option to choose how many posts get displayed per page?

    Totally niche case, but I travel on the subway an hour each way to work, so if I can load up say 200 posts on the one page and not have to wait an hour for internet signal to continue reading, I can continue to absorb PA as I travel. And not play some god awful iOS games. Yeah we have newspapers but I get up early to read the news on my fave sites.

    I still dream for an app that downloads every new post on the forum to my phone automatically, 3G or not, so I can read them when I'm underground.

    Also, can this thing do handjobs or what?

    Please don't hurt me icy

    Just adding my voice to the youtube thing. On an iPhone 5.

    Embedded youtubes, when clicked, shrink down to a single line height view only allowing me to click the name, which opens a new window for the video, eliminating the point of embedding in the first place.

    Also, there doesn't seem to be a reliable way to bring up the task bars. I scroll up and down, and eventually they appear. Is there something contextual I need to to, or do they just pop up after a period of inactivity?

    Same logic as the Safari context bars. Scrolling down the page hides them. Scrolling up a little (and pausing) brings them back. Scrolling to the top or bottom also brings them back.

    Kind of worried about getting banned from this thread now...

    It would be good to have more space for thread titles in the sub forum lists. If you head to Debate and Discourse, those wordy fucks write such long thread titles it's often not possible to discern what a thread is about because of the truncation.

    I promise not to post here for a couple days now. Quiet time for Spaffy. Icy needs to be fed and watered.

    Wow, I'm loving the mobile site now. Thanks for all of the quick updates!

  • EinzelEinzel Registered User regular
    1 can the new post notification for a thread you've viewed be colored so it's really identifiable?
    2 is the back arrow on the top toolbar the only way we'll ever be able to navigate between sub forums? It's very slow to work with.
    3 can we have more info on the page count bar at the bottom? It's nice to know I'm on page 5, but I can't tell if there's a page 6 unless I attempt to go to it.
    4 maybe it's a bug, but the chain quotes aren't compressing for me on chrome for android. One chain quote post can take up 1/2 the entire page.

    On my android, the toolbar buttons don't work at all and if I try to type the android keypad covers up the text box and the screen won't scroll anymore so it's impossible to see what I'm typing.

    I can tap the menu that pops out of the left side of the screen when I'm in a thread. Its acting as if its invisible, but the links still work, meaning I'll be randomly redirected to my profile or notifications or recent posts. That menu isnt even available while reading a thread; the button is replaced by the back button.

    Also the reaction avatars are a bit on the huge side

    edit: it seems I can touch them anywhere, but links that are supposed to be on the page, like links to forums or someones profile page are working as intended. Its as if the menu is behind everything.

    Internet Explorer

    this seems to have been fixed :D

    After today, I noticed this was only fixed while I was in a thread. If I'm looking at a forum, or the top page, the sidebar is still touchable without being visible.

    As in, I can accidentally touch a shortcut that is on the gray sidebar on the left, without having said sidebar open.

    The black bar at the bottom likes to get in the way of me scrolling when I use Opera classic. Plus I can't access my bookmarks.

    There are some technical reasons, and some philosophical ones. The technical ones are enough on their own, so we'll stick with that :p

    The page numbers are very difficult to read on chrome, light blue with a white background, same with the "search thread" box. I was going to complain about the huge don't but either I got used to it or you guys changed it since last I looked, seems fine now.

    Black bar is too cluttery, text is still too big, and scrolling is kind of slow.

  • skeldareskeldare Gresham, ORRegistered User regular
    I've noticed that often when I'm typing comments, even though the bottom bar will be hidden the buttons will apparently still function and I'll accidentally click them.

    Also image insertion still doesn't seem to work.

    The top bar seems unecessary, but it doesn't really affect me, so no complaints :)

    Also, the response for all the pages seems wayyyyy faster from where it was most of yesterday. If there was something you changed to make that happen, thanks! It worked fantastically, it is such a smoother experience now.

    Page numbers? I do

    Since the switch to vanilla the thing to go to the most recent new post takes you to the first post made since you last viewed the thread, as opposed to the most recent unread post. So If you're reading a long on topic thread in chunks you need to keep track of the page number you're up to (I keep them in evernote)

    I dont know if its related to the mobile update, but clicking on a spoiler inside of a spoiler closes the spoilers instead of opening the spoilered spoiler. Started happening after the roll out.

    At least on iPhone 5, there's no in UI indication of having received a PM or batsignal.

    Unless you physically check the black bar menus.

    I guess I'm missing the little red boxed number.
