    I was wondering if it was just me or if anyone else has some issues with the usability of the forum using a mobile phone?

    although everything works, features such as logging in and seeing the 'account', 'conversations' and 'alerts' buttons at the time can only be viewed if the phone is sideways. It just feels very awkward to use.

    Maybe its just me!? ;)

    anyway, if this an issue for other people, maybe we can look into this to make the forum more mobile friendly?

    @3ph0r is this a new issue? I recently added a caching add-on to the site and it may have had unexpected side effects.

    I first noticed it a few months ago but tbh it was the first time trying to use it on my phone.

    @3ph0r I see what you mean. It might be the custom skin we are using. Down towards the bottom/left there is a button/link called "Indie Gamer". If you click this, there are other skins. Try the one that says "Default". This seemed to be a bit nicer to use on mobile. Let me know what you think.
