I just noticed that this forum has a mobile site

The good thing about it is that it's a working mobile site.

The bad thing about it is that the mobile site is practically a relic from the past - it was designed with WAP browsers in mind, and since today's mobile devices either are powerful enough to handle a reap mobile site using mostly the same technologies of desktop sites, or utilize the cloud to do the crunching for them (Opera Mini and Nokia Xpress).

Ever thought about a nicer mobile site? The WAP site is very basic, and it IS fast, but sometimes I feel like I could have done more with it.

(I typed all this on my phone.)

The mobile site is simply a theme I installed because it was requested of me for a certain user ;)

I simply don't have the time anymore to make new themes from scratch and this theme translates to modern mobile browsers pretty well :)

Indeed, aside from how the text sometimes seems a bit small. Or the buttons. It is serviceable though.

I suppose at the very least the choice to use the WAP site should stick between browsing sessions. :P

You should be able to change your default theme in your profile :)
