Why would they redesign the entire site to work on mobile and then... have it not work on mobile? Seems like something is missing along the chain link there if you know what I mean.

And I'd be happy to design an app if only I knew how. Surely someone among us does and would.

Because shit happens. I mean, it's like saying just because a game is bad, it was never designed to be good. This is the world, people try doing stuff and sometimes it doesn't work. I'm sure Trucks either didn't fully test the new layout on mobile, or it did work on his phone despite not working properly for other people.

I'm glad you're hopeful about an app, though, I'm certainly not.

I'm not hopeful... I've been coming here far longer than my profile says and it's never happened. It probably never will. Doesn't mean there's any excuse for it NOT happening though. I mean, have you searched the app store lately? There's apps for just about the stupidest shit on earth. Certainly a site this size deserves its own little app by now lol.

It does sound like a good amount of work, though. As in, lots of work. Of course, pretty much everything has an app, but pretty much everyone has a mobile-optimized site too. VGC isn't everyone, VGC is outdated and I think a big reason why is because we don't really mind that.

I mean, I certainly don't care enough to go out of my way now to talk to Trucks or Talon about making it happen or whatever, because I'm fine with how it works on my PC and I barely care about using it on mobile. Since this applies to mostly everyone, well, we get stuck in time.

Anyways, if I might wanna ease my conscience and feel like I've done at least something, I'll just summon them here. @TruckOSaurus @TalonMan I summon thee. (this is also my first time using the mention thing, hopefully I did it right!)



Simply put not everyone is having the same issues you describe. On my s7 i can use the poll and open threads. Try a different browser or see if it works on a different device ( hey applecare )
The scroll thing is just personal preference.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

I'm also having trouble clicking on threads, also with music playing and being unable to stop it. If im listening to music on Spotify I simply don't visit the site.

one day one day lol.



 

 

i concur that that the front page is currently not working well on mobile. one of my biggest gripes is i can almost never click on my account and go to my user page. it just doesn’t respond most of the time.

i also don’t really enjoy the massive amount of scrolling associated with the front page. in all honesty i preferred the desktop layout on mobile to this current “mobile” site layout.



Question is anyone of you using adblock ?

On my IPhone SE, the front page is a nuisance.  Polls are unclickable, the threads are half clickable, and you can't log in on the front page.  The only way to log in is to open a thread (from about half that work), and back door it.  Also, the front page is one super log column with far too much scrolling required.

Anyone looking into this?  I can't be the only one who's mentioned it.   

the same, i thought it has to do with my smartphone, but now it seems i'm not the only one



Is there really a big problem with mobile? I mean, the front page seems kinda cramped, but otherwise, nothing has changed for the worse for me.



My true form. You like it?
