May I add an complaint:

For the last week (couple of weeks) the scrolling works wanky on this site on iPad and iPhone. I do not have this problem on any other sites.

My problem is that the scrolling is sticky, if I do a quick swipe with the finger the scrolling stops instantly when I lift the finger. The normal behaviour is that a qick swipe followed by lifting the finger should keep the page scroling with simulated inertia.

It must be some programming on this site since this site is the only one I visit with this behaviour.

I want to add a few lines to this problem.

I usually browse VGC on my laptop and the scrolling doesn't work the same way it did before. While I can scroll each forum page with the mouse wheel without problems, I cannot move the page up or down with the Page Up/Page Down keys nor the directional keys pn the keyboard, unless I first click with the mouse on empty space on the page. But that defeats the whole purpose of scrolling a page without using the mouse.

This is not the first complaint I've heard about the scrolling - though there seems to be some inconsistency between different browsers - I will have to investigate.

I'm most interested in the mobile issue, Spindel - what browser are you using?

VGC has a couple iframes.  I wonder if one of these iframes or some other hidden scrollable element is taking focus on page load.  Could try an onload window.focus() though that will only likely work after the iframe or scrollable in question has already stolen focus.
