thats not all thoufh. the pages continually spaz out and reload to the top of the page. i actually have to wait before scrilling, and even then it does random reloads. the desktop site sucks too. the spell check is the most unintiative thing ever.
why cant you use the same template every ither forum in the world runs. or hire new programmers.
Being a programmer, and a web programmer, I disagree, the desktop site is well thought out, but its obvious a few features were "tact" on after the original development.
But mostly its a good experience, especially in chrome. But the spellcheck is annoying, chrome picks up the errors but you cant right click and correct it like on the standard open source forum stuff.
But the mobile experience is a real disaster, like really bad. And TBH reprogramming for each new tapatalk plugin is stupid, it wastes developer time and costs a lot of money. Because doing [small changes, testing] can run into many many many cycles and really does eat away time. I honestly think a standalond tapatalk client like XDA-developers have is the best way to go, may be a little bit more upfront, but will save a mountain of money and time over even the first few months.
Why they don't do it, is really beyond me.
And also making a mobile website of this is a no-no, it will be too complex and too slow, its NOT worth the money IMHO, it could probably cost more then the desktop site to develop. And I cannot fathom anyone seriously considering this.
