    Please for the love of God, make it so you dont have to use tapatalk. The Last version was perfect the way it was.

    You don't have to. You can browse the normal site however you please. However, mobile skins are a PITA to maintain and take a lot of time and resources that we don't have. If you want to browse the site from a phone, we recommend Tapatalk. It works better than any mobile skin we could develop would.

    Could you at least make it so it doesnt display the entire first post of every thread? It also shows the join date, location, etc. under the last person to post also.

    See, this is part of the problem.

    My phone doesn't exhibit any of those issues. It actually looks quite good and is totally readable and usable for the most part, just slow to load (which is more a function of my old-ass phone than anything else).

    There are literally hundreds of phones running hundreds of different implementations of tens of different browsers. I don't have access to an armada of cellphones to test a mobile site with. That's what makes the app so nice - it's a consistent experience across all phones/platforms.

    My phone displays this new forum just fine in the browser. Tapatalk is just much quicker and easier so I'm not zooming in all over the place. The reply function is also much easier.

    Spend the 3 bucks man...

    I don't know if it has been said or if it exists anymore, but bring back the "Last page" link on the menu of all the threads. (e.g. go to page 1, 2, 3... go to last post... go to last page). I miss it :(

    Instead of saying "last page", the last one in the list is the actual last page. As for last post, click the little double arrows next to the name of the last poster in a thread.

    Because posts only show if there are threads immediately underneath. Both of those sections consist of groups.

    Would it be possible to change "Forum" to "3.7 Main Forum" or something similar?

    Thats the way the old site was. It was just a simple thing that made it easy to navigate. No big deal, I just thought it would flow better.

    Yeah, I dunno. Just seems like adding unnecessary words/clutter to a title bar that is already getting unwieldy with words and links.

    What about moving it or increasing the font size? I agree, it is pretty cluttered, and its hard to find the tabs on the fly.

    Which "forum" are you talking about? I assumed you meant this one.
