So the new mobile version of the forum is broken and is completely horrible to post with...

Is 10C aware of how totally awful the new mobile version of the forum is when it comes to posting functionality? It's pretty close to unusable. Even worse than it was back before the big change in 2014 or whenever it was. It even makes my browser crash while I'm attempting to get what I'm typing out of someone else's quote (it never works) pretty regularly. It's also pretty damn hard to type while the keyboard plus this top banner with the band's name on it that drops down often covers up literally the entire typing field. I'm just wondering if anyone is working on this huge problem or if 10C at least agrees it needs fixing?

    No, definitely not just you. I am reasonably handy and patient with this stuff, and I have literally never encountered a mobile website that worked this badly in so many ways, from basic functionality to layout to navigation. It is a huge deterrent for anyone using it. And with that, I'm outta here because I just can't take it anymore.

    I can post, and I can wrangle my way out of someone else's quote box if I'm lucky, but for the love of god can we please get ride of the endless boxes of quotes within quotes within quotes as they currently display on the mobile version?

    I have been able to navigate out of other's quotes rather effectively but the DRAFT SAVED notification is annoying as hell. Consistently appears right over the text I am typing or over the post button. Completely in the way.

    Also, the navigation is terrible. You have to go back to the home page every single time you want to go to a different sub-category. Plus, how do you PM with the mobile version?? I can't find that anywhere. Does it exist? I notice that a lot more people are posting private messages on people's public walls now, because there is no apparent way to PM.

    If you go to your private messages section (bottom left icon), there should be a "new message" button at the top right.  Then type in the username.  Kind of a pain vs non-phone mode.

    Well, thank you for the attempt, but I already have one level as the selection but all the levels show up on the mobile site.

    A horse once heard Stone Gossard playing guitar on the other side of a wall. And that, my friends, is where giraffes came from.

    Quote issue is present on my phone as well.  Only way to work with a quote seems to be laptop.

    Unable to sleep and last night on vacation I was reading threads I've never opened. Glad I did because I could never figure out why sometimes I get the 3D looking quote, and sometimes not. Reading this I finally realized it's only on the mobile site I get the ridiculous 3D version. Mobile version is terrible, I hate it.
    id donate a Benny to get it fixed, except I don't have one, and I'm already kinda over it anyway.
