Just floating an idea here... I am planning to test a change that will see visits to www.geekzone.co.nz NOT redirecting to mobile site unless you select the option to see the mobile site by default.

 

If you enter m.geekzone.co.nz on mobile you will still be served that.

 

The main site is fast on mobile and I want to measure exactly how much is influenced by the redirection.

Cool, I was loading it from home screen on iPhone so could go to full site straight away.

Can just save it in favourite bookmarks now, before bookmark was going to mobile site.
Full site works good.

I fully support this. I had no idea that the desktop version of the site was fully functional on mobile until it was mentioned on that other thread recently, so many others may be getting unnecessarily frustrated with the mobile version.

This is now in-place. You can browse the mobile site and use it for posting replies but all defaults go to the main site - including links from emails.

I'm always keen for a full site on mobile as default.  Can't stand mobile sites these days.

Sounds good. I almost always browse the full site on mobile using the Opera browser, so I can actually get proper text reflow and resizing.
