Same. Once the forums get wild again, it'll be an amazing time waster while out and about.

Yeah, being able to check the forums from my phone is probably going to be a blessing and a curse. I suppose it's better than mindlessly scrolling through IG, though.

How does one get access to dirty dozen anymore?

 

Once things pick up steam, I plan to set that back up and will also be expanding the perks on it. Hold tight, spread the word and help get this place bumping again so its worth setting it all up.

If you guys have any suggestion to improve the experience on iPhone or spot issues, speak up and I'll do my best to address them.

It may only be me but I live on the New Posts page of forums. The recent activity page under forum nav is an eyesore for me and doesn't give me the simple info I want straight up - the most recent posts, in what thread by who.

 

However, the new post page still exists here - http://forum.12ozprophet.com/find-new/1804054/posts if there are any forum pedants similar to myself.

To be honest, there's a better than fair chance I'll replace this forum with a much simpler version despite having just finished. Trying to bridge the registration and login system literally cost me months of time and tons of money despite never having been finalized. Everytime I got close, a software update created an issue that set things back. Not sure how much you guys care about having a sitewide login and registration system, but maintaining two separate accounts for 12oz (main site and forum), has caused us nothing but trouble for years now. There are some integrated solutions that now exist that would be bridged by default, but all are much simpler forum systems.

 

I know it's got zero to do with what you commented on above, but just letting everyone know. When we tried to custom develop a forum system it was just way too much to tackle from a development point of view, let alone maintenance. As such, we generally buy into commercial forum systems and then modify it to fit out needs. Issue is the more you modify, the more potential for something to go wrong, which led to the last huge meltdown a couple years back that about killed the login system. Its complicated and timely to pull off so my new rule of thumb is to try not to tweak things too much.

 

I know its a shitty reply, but knowing its impossible to please everyone, I've strived to do what I think will please most. At this point, I'm just trying to keep things working so people can easily register, login and post. First goal after that is to try and ensure the experience on mobile in solid since so much traffic seems to come from mobile. I'm hoping it gets better with time since once we have a solid platform, we can then evolve it. This latest site launch was all about that... Basically starting from scratch and ensuring we have a very well built foundation we can then evolve over the coming years... Site and forum.

I don't know about others but I basically never use the main site. I'm only on the forum.

 

Not sure if that feed back is any use to you.
