I'm happy I'm on the mobile app right now. I'm afraid to try The Forum on my computer.

Nolan, when can we expect your team to have the forums un-fucked?

I'd love to use the mobile app if they'd actually update it to work with the current Android version.

Fortunately the mobile site works okay, save for the occasional redirect with the loud "CONGRATULATIONS" out for everyone to hear.

site needs a max width. no reason it needs to ever go wider than ~1200px, makes it hard to read.

Hah! My time spent on this forum is limited to only when i'm on a PC for that reason. The mobile site is completely unusable due to being overrun with ads/possible malware/redirects. It won't even stay working long enough for me to get to the "turn off mobile site" option.

I still want to puke every time I open mt.net now. It looks like the mustang forums, which are the opposite of mt.net in terms of actual content.

Now just like on RX7 Club we have those annoying "similar" threads appended to the bottom. Most of which have absolutely nothing to do with the thread you have opened to read. Has anyone actually asked for this stupidity?

As Chiefmg mentinoed, the "similar thread" that opens can be pretty annoying.

I am enhoying the infinite scroll function for long threads. The layout also look well after the black boarders were removed. Much appreciation to the work that goes behind the scenes.

Not one person in history has asked for the "similar threads" "feature."

It's there so they can register more clicks to inflate their numbers to better market to advertisers.

Any ad issues should be gone and please report any pop-ups or redirects you see so we can block them. Once logged in, the ads on mobile should be minimal. Supporting members have no ads on mobile as far as I can see.

I've posted all that a time or dozen in the past here. Seems easier to just not visit the site on the phone. If it makes you feel better, i do the same on most Miata sites, too. Mobile internetting seems real hard for forums to figure out.

What specific elements are you missing on mobile? I am on several forums outside of IB and nothing even comes close to ours in terms of parity with desktop.

The ads shouldn't be a problem on your account as there are none when logged in.
