Hope this is the right place.

Noticed a few annoying things in the mobile view
1: when you go to a topic, want to post, but you're not signed in, once you sign in you go back to the main menu. not the page you were on.

2: It's very hard to distinguish between the stickied topics, and the ones in the normal part of each forum

Not huge things, but it does say to report any issues :)

Ok, sounds fair. Will talk to RedJungle about it.

Another couple:

- For big threads, there is no way to jump to the most recent page. (so it would take you about ten minutes to move through the pages of the Galazy S2 thread to reach the most recent posts)


- An equivalent page like the 'most recent discussions' instead of having to go to each forum individually would be a nice to have.

From the topic list you can jump to the last page of any discussion. There is an icon next to each title.

Thanks, I wasn't aware of that. On my phone, using Opera Mini 5, that icon is just a text marker saying 'Image' .
It would also be nice to have a 'Last page' navigation from within the thread itself.

I can see the icons for marking whether a topic is sticky or hot

What I found is that Geekzone full is very fast on a mobile anyway - that's what I use.

Biased much?

Finding on various browsers (Android ICS - Opera Mobile, Chrome Beta, Default browser) that the text in posts isn't re-flowing quite as nicely as it used to when zooming to any level on the main site. Not looked into it in any detail from my end as yet.

We haven't changed anything on the mobile site for months now. What I've seen is that more and more mobile browsers seem to be behaving in different ways - and each one is messier than the other.

Pretty sure I wasn't having the same problems with Opera and the default browser on Gingerbread. Obviously there is no Chrome option for GB.

Need to do some more testing.

ETA: This is for the Main site, not mobile. Haven't bothered with the mobile site as the main site is PDQ.
