I use my phone as a phone and my computer as a computer... does that make me weird?

Kind of. You don't own a smartphone or tablet?


yes (not a tablet, just the smartphone)... but I use it as a phone. I got the phone for free when I signed up for my cell phone service :)

There's many reasons to use a phone browser over a PC, don't be so small minded.

Wow, did you keep open the thread in a browser tab for two and a half years, with the resolve to answer it as soon as you've worked through your other tabs?

And welcome back, nice to see you again online.

Being reliant on Google alone for income is never a good position to be in anyhow.

Haha thanks! I logged in via PC for the first time in over 2 years (I was trying mobile and it drove me crazy) and I got an icon saying there's a new comment. I didn't realize it had been dormant for so long until I posted it.

Interestingly(and sadly) the website has done nothing to address the mobile accessibility since then so I figured it's still very much relevant.

Well, recently there was movement, ioi has given control to other people. I heard that there is work on a new UI that should be more mobile friendly.

I actually prefer desktop modes of sites when I'm on my phone. Mobile sites suck most of the time.

From memory ioi was into expensive fancy cars, chances are that's where all the site profits (if any) have gone towards and that's why we're left with a decaying website (I'm just throwing hypotheticals). But let's not forget half the website was actually built by the users so the least he could do is fix the mess up, which you say is happening. *fingers crossed*

I've also noticed the numbers have been slipping very far behind. We used to come before NPD, not after.

Oh, you missed the worst lag in the numbers. This has recently got a lot better, since two people now do the numbers. Must look up who it was, but thumbs up to them. Since then numbers have gotten more regular.

Wow - another 'old school' user has shown up!! LOL!!!!

I only recently came back from the dead myself...    ...and yes, it's TRUE!! There is a responsive re-design already underway (some of the major sections of the website have already been converted!!), and TruckOSaurus is the guy responsible!

Meanwhile, I've been busy resurrecting the REAL game database back to the way it used to be - and it won't be long now before that's up and running once again, too!

 

 

...yup - you picked a damn good time to decide to show up. ;)

Lol now there's something you don't see every day.

Kinda funny to see a necrobump in a thread I posted, though. I think it's my first time!
