Wii Friendly Forum Suggestion

SquashuaSquashua __BANNED USERS regular
Maybe I do not yet know the control to do get back to the page top yet, but when browsing the forum via wii opera, it would be helpful to have a duplicate of the links at the top of the page located across the bottom of the page.

by links, i am referring to tools, search, user panel, members, home, faq.

this would save a drag back to the top of the page

poastin from my wii :D

    As a workaround, you could click one of the forum structure links at the bottom.

    For maximum Wii-a-tude it would be nice if you could browse and post to the forums in "Printable Version."

    The "Printable Version" of forum pages display really nice on the Wii.

    How does it look on the Wii? I thought they used the same rendering engine as the desktop Opera. D:

    It's really the browsing scheme on Wii that is hte hang-up.

    You can scroll up and down a hell of a lot faster with a mouse and/or pageup/pagedown keyboard controls.

    When trying to get back to the top-page links from the bottom of a 50-post thread view, it takes a minute.

    Can't you just press the 'Top' Link at the bottom of the page, and that'll bring you back up to the top of the page?

    I wouldn't mind a PSP-friendly version. >_>

    What happened to the mobile version of the PA frontpage?

    Yeah, didn't know about that link, thanks.

    While we're at it, why don't we get a PS3 version, and a Windows CE version, and a Palm Treo version, and a Blackberry version, and an iPhone version........(hopefully everyone gets it by now)

    I'd love a Wii version, but ya, lets draw the line.

    I wasn't asking for a Wii-specific version.

    I was asking for a slight re-design to accommodate a browser that doesn't scroll quickly.

    Fortunately, the "top" link in the bottom right pretty much solves the problem; it'd still be nice, but now there is at least a very good work-around.

    My issue with "top" is that it's not all that prevalent as it took this very thread for me to notice it.

    How about just a "non-pc" version that's pretty basic?

    Why on earth would anyone seriously browse Penny Arcade from their Wii anyway?

    PC is upstairs and turned off; got bored playing Mario Strikers and decided to check in on the status of the various Forum-based games we're all playing without you in the ODAM, SE++ and D&D forums.

    Plus the Wii has keyboard support now, so I'm told.
