Bit of a long shot here guys & gals, but have you ever considered a mobile optimised forum layout, as opposed to just the browser version ??

I thought it was? I mean, it looks and works fine on my Android & iPad.

Was there something in particular that you were thinking about with regards to this?

The text boxes are slightly wider on my iPhone, so I always have to pinch it slightly to get the whole box in view, plus it all feels a bit small I suppose.

I just wondered if there’s was a more mobile friendly version, like you see with other websites and such.

It’s cool though, I’m not mad.

It's fine for me on Safari on my phone, Suits. The only thing that's an 'issue' (not an issue personally) is that it only displays about two thirds of any videos people post.

All text, boxes etc look ok, so maybe an i-setting?

Is there an i-setting ??

There used to be a cool App called Tapa-Talk that optimised everything for phones but it turned into some nonsense advertising software.

Also displays very neatly for me on iOS Safari for the most part, although I have the text slightly enlarged which might affect it slightly.

OK here on Android.

Still getting the random logging out though which is infuriating, although probably nothing to do with the forum itself.

Works fine for me on iOS with safari too.

I’d love to be able to upload photos from my phone directly so that would be a feature which would be nice albeit a luxury.

When I want to include a pic with my post I use this site: https://imgbb.com/

Works great, can upload from phone, and it'll even create the correct forum code for you to paste straight in to your post.

Not sure what's going on with all that nonsense but in the meantime, I've deactivated his account.

It's him, I'm sure, I don't think you need to lock his account. He's done it before and used the same "snip." replacement for a bunch of his posts.
I've had a few wobbles and have come close to asking for my account to be nuked.
It's easy to have a crisis of confidence somewhere like this where you're not getting any sort of feedback a lot of the time, never mind positive.
If you're insecure to start with, posting something totally innocuous can make you fret for days.
I don't think he's angry or storming off or looking for attention, I think he's just worrying and having some time out.
I'd leave the door open, hope he comes back and not make a big thing of it. He's a good bloke, I always like reading his posts.

Editing 1048 posts is concerning behaviour.

Has he talked about feeling like he plays too much games and cutting back from that before? (I think he has, just can't remember). He may be feeling that way again and decided that the forum isn't helping, idk.

ThirdMan, stay safe out there mate.

I know that feeling. Just spent 2 hours typing my thoughts on FFXV in a post I'm still convinced is a bit crap.

It's going to make searching for posts containing the word 'snip' a fucking pain in the arse, isn't it.
