    Anyone else having problems with the mobile version of the site on an IPhone or iPod? The comments sections is very laggy and practically unusable at the moment. The main site and forum seem ok though.

    This is after upgrading to version 5.1.1 on an ipod touch.

    I can't login from the Vita in Mobile view. I click on the box and it highlights, but no cursor appears and the keyboard doesn't come up. This works in portable mode.

    Also, I'm having trouble posting from the Vita now in general. Sometimes I click on the text box and it registers, the keyboard comes up and it work. Other times I keep tapping on the box and nothing happens. Also, if I'm already typing and I hide the keyboard, clicking on the text box no longer has any effect. I couldn't edit my post either - same problem.

    Here's some feedback, could we have a black or otherwise dark background option for the forum?
    It's kind of hard on the eyes late at night.

    I just clicked onto the 'What are you listening to?' thread and it's bugged back to when I was last drunk and posting on the forum. Is this a new feature?

    iPhone 4s - clicking plus or minus on comments has delays or doesn't work after the first few ratings

    Mobile site appears to be doing some kind of click capture thing which is messing it up on my iPhone 4. If you highlight text then you can't tap to deselect it.
    Also sometimes I have to tap a link several times before it actually navigates to it, although the phone responds to the tap, the action appears to be getting cancelled.

    I thought it was just my phone on the blink but EG is the only site that does it.

    Yeah, it's fucked.

    No one at eg reads this thread so don't expect it to get fixed.

    I thought it was just me? I shall also express my displeasure at this. Exactly the same problems as Nazo, on both iOS and Android. I'm cancelling my subscription to your magazine until it's fixed :p

    Ah, we've been using FastClick recently, which is a script that helps to reduce the delay between a touch and the navigation event firing on touchscreen UIs. I don't think it's quite mature enough, so it's been disabled. Let us know how you get on.

    Ooohhh didn't know this thread existed!

    I've mentioned this elsewhere, but I seem unable to alter any info in my profile (I'm guessing this may have to do with the space in my name). I can't change the email address this account is linked to - which has long gone - or any of the witty "about me" stuff which I must've added a good seven years ago.

    If this is sortable, that would be great! :)

    Just to confirm after a couple of days use, it's definitely fixed now. Significantly faster and links work first time :)

    Just a thought, but can we PLEASE have an iOS, Android and Windows Phone category? Lumping them all into a "mobile" category is like sticking Xbox, PS3 and WiiU in a generic "Console" category.

    Sub-categories might be nice too, so you can choose Platform - review for example, seeing as stuff like user reviews seems to have gone the way of the dinosaur on this site (fwiw I really liked them)

    Links on articles to take you straight to forum threads would be nice touch too, leading more people to the forum instead of an ethereal comments thread that will never be seen by 99.99% of people from a week after the article/review was published. (i.e, an automatic forum thread created with each review).

    I appreciate the amount of server space this might create though, but other sites do it (see Comicbookresources.com for one example)

    There are problems with threads where the OP is on ignore. Such threads (usually - sometimes, inexplicably, they do) do not appear on the list and the number of replies is listed as -1. They do appear on the "threads I've posted in" list, though.

    Edit2: also, when I am in such a thread, I get no "go to page" or previous/next controls.

    Put a dot after the question mark at the end of the post.
  • Deleted user 3 January 2013 14:38:06
    I PMed Craigy about this bug - not sure if it's been reported previously - but he's probably swamped with PMs.

    Anyway. When viewing PMs, the pagination drop down menu at the bottom of the page reflects however many PMs you've had since you opened your account and not actually how many are actually live. I might have 0 PMs but the combo suggests I have 65 pages' worth.

    Also, you can't delete sent PMs.

    What happened to the forum on the mobile site? The list of most recent posts (useful) on the front page has been replaced with a massive list of all the available boards in a non mobile friendly format (not useful).

    Edit - nevermind, it looks like it has changed my display settings for some reason.

    The feeds down the bottom there have pretty much stopped updating since the New Year.

    The front page now causes my anti virus to go off. It's not too dramatic, it merely complains about hidden iframes, but you might want to take a look at it anyways. Luckily I am the administrator here so the virus alerts land on my desk and not someone else's :)

    The tools for groups are still broken. I cant rename any threads in The L4D Group for some reason. When i click the rename button on the left it just takes me to the front page. This happens when using both Firefox and IE.

    Is there a fix?...Craigy?...Ven?

    It's like that scene in Zero Dark Thirty where she keeps scrawling the number of days elapsed with no activity on the window.
