I can fill my entire monitor with blank black space if I scroll to the right. Yeesh!

All ads should be hidden for Supporting members except for this last bastard that appears at the end of each thread. Working with our tech team to hide it.

Mobile is SO ridden with ads that the entire page becomes unresponsive, even if you were smart enough to be able to use the remaining 10% of real estate to find the sign in link, it doesn't work anyways.

Link to drop down to disable mobile doesn't work either.

Long story short: Mobile is so broken that if you get signed out for any reason, you're locked out of it forever.

And i'm REALLY sick of seeing hugenormous marijuana ads on Mobile.

The ads are a mess logged out and we are working to fix the issue that has them pushing the right rail way wide. That should help logging in once fixed.

In the meantime, if you are having issues getting the login box to work on the desktop style then try logging in with the mobile style first: https://www.miataturbo.net/?styleid=24

Once logged in you can switch to either style in with the button in the footer and you should not have any ad problems when logged in as a supporting member.

That would be fine and dandy... if the site worked enough on Mobile to be able to log in in the first place.

Like i said, it's so broken that i can't log in, nor can i even get the "full site" button to work. Site defaults to mobile. Can't do anything about it.

For funsies, i opened this thread on the phone three times.

1st time: ad takes up 80% of the space, no option to minimize it. Ad presumably killed browser. Loading status bar never finished, can't do anything in thread but scroll through it and peer through the 20% of real estate left. All buttons/links unresponsive.
2nd time: 14, count 'em, FOURTEEN ads in/around/between the posts in this thread. All buttons/links unresponsive.
3rd time: Ad takes up 80% of space, starting to look like scenario 1 again. Ad magically on its own decides to only take up 20% of real estate. I am able to scroll and view things with 80% of my screen. I count 11 ads in addition to the one at the bottom of my screen. All buttons/links unresponsive.

I know people like to blow things out of proportion, but this is quite literally the ONLY site of ANY kind that I ever have issues with on mobile. It's the year 2017. Why is this still so hard?

On my phone I use the APP instead of mobile version. It works pretty well except for embedded youtube videos.

concealer404 which mobile browser are you using?

On Chrome you just go to the settings menu and check the box that says "request desktop site." It will then display the desktop version... Which actually works.

Dolphin.

I'm not technologically "hip."

The complaint is that what works for every other site i've ever run across on the internet.... doesn't work here. Dolphin isn't populating ads on MT just because they think it'll be funny. :P

Of course, I get the problem -- just trying to help you with a workaround.

Internet brand absolutely tanked rx7club.com. and other mazda forum sites I enjoy. I understand they are in the business of making money... but the whole scrolling down to find your self in another thread is annoying.
