I used to use Tapatalk to browse on my cell phone but I had to quit using it due to there being no distinction between what was quoted from a previous post and the new post. I know that it's not a Tapatalk issue as I browse other forums on there and don't have the same issue with them. 

 

I also second (third, fourth... etc??) needing a way to get to the last page of a thread on a mobile device.

I don't want to be someone who suggests something that everyone else hates, but I personally would like to have a little feature where you can "like" a post, and maybe even a tally in your personal profile, to keep track of how many likes, or productive posts, you have personally generated.

Just edit the page number in the URL.

I hope that the mobile forum can remain the same. It is the most user friendly mobile format that I've used.

I really 2 like themes (for probably the same reason): SixteenNine Pro theme and Eleven40 Pro Theme.

 

My reason is that those two in particular appear to allow for easy and intuitive links to other areas of TBD.

I trust you and am glad to hear you're all about keeping it simple and de-cluttered. 

 

My suggestion, which I think I made before to you, is to remove anonymity (Facebook or Google plus login required). That would encourage civil discourse since cowards wouldn't hide behind their avatars, especially in the politics forum.

Other forums I use have a notification area that tells you when someone replies to a comment you made and will take you straight to is.  

 

Always liked that feature

I've been looking around at forum themes and nothing really pops out as being that much better than the others.  I think the social integration that many of them have is step in the right direction.  Being able to tag other posters, create groups chats, like comments/posts to get more attention, etc...I really think that's just helps broaden the overall experience.

 

As for TBD, SDS, is there anything else you're looking for as far as ideas?  Seems like it's mostly just you playing around with things to find the right feel (outside of the font and screen resolution question you posted).  I spent some time going through all of the themes again and I still vote for Metro Pro, but since we don't have near the details of all of the issues you have to think about, it's a hollow vote.

Oh God please no unless it can be turned off.  I don't need any more email.

I hope TBD doesn't do this.

I don't do FaceBook or Google plus so I'd be out. Besides when I read comments on sites that require those logons, they don't seem very civil.
