Heya! @The_Buffalo

navigating the new mobile site on iOS takes a bit of muscle memory development..…. 

please REENABLE the “REQUEST DESKTOP WEBSITE” option in iOS. Currently, it just kicks back to mobile version. 

Sometimes, zooming in is easiest. 

Thanks

    You’re crazy.

  • The mobile version has clickable nav at the very top which is helpful, especially when not signed in. When not signed in, you have to go from first page to last page and all around. So if you just scroll way up you can navigate to “look at a different thread” a little better than back.

    I use this site 90% via my laptop and 10% via my phone. I only use the phone while cooking if I'm out in the backyard.

  • I miss the old desktop version as well.  I’ll use both versions almost equally, depending on where I am.

  • I just hate that the recent messages stops with no way to keep scrolling so now I just see the same 4-5 threads that are always at the top

    Clicking on notifications brings up the list of new comments in a small number (6) of threads, a quick way to jump to the new comments. That is a good thing from my perspective on the desktop.

    But clicking on the "Mark All Read" at the bottom right on the mobile app indicates the button is pushed with a rectangular grey/gray (nod) box that does not appear on the desktop version. Also, I expected the list to contain one less entry after clicking on a link, reading the comments, and then clicking on the notification icon to go to the next listed thread.

    The new comments feature does not appear to be for individual members but rather a universal list. Nice idea but I can see how it would become unmanageable with new comments in a large number of threads on the main page. Clicking on my Icon at the top right of the forum command line and then clicking notifications shows the list of new comments that I would expect to be removed, having read them in the threads. 

    Stating the obvious here, this only works for Main Egghead Forum threads, Off topic threads with new comments are not included. I know, it is a work in progress and I appreciate the effort.
