Do you access the Discussion Forums on your mobile phone?

I'm curious if anyone tries. Outside of the forums the site is mostly mobile friendly (improvements still needed), but I haven't switched the forums.

Would this be of interest to anyone?

My only source is my mobile phone. I never have had a computer. I've been accessing this site through a mobile phone since 2010.

I pretty much only access on a computer. I do enough business and work on my phone that I try to keep the "fun" stuff on a larger, easier to see screen.

I wouldn't be surprised to find I'm in the minority on that.

Computer.

A nice feature I would like to see is a "like" button similar to Facebook. Sometimes I would still like to engage in comments or posts without having to post something myself, especially when I don't have anything relevant to add.

Computers.

But not those also known as "cell phones." :-)

I frequently am on here with my mobile. I think it would be good to have a more mobile friendly forum.

No, and no. Computer only. I do use smartphones and tablets extensively, but not for heavy lifting. For www I use only laptops.

I'm definitely going to move forward with making the discussion forums mobile friendly and I like the additional suggestion from mucciared of having a Like button for posts.

I still want to hear from others if you haven't responded.

I use both but mostly computer.

I like the concept of making the discussion forums mobile ready.

I also like the concept of some type of "like" button. Many times I agree with other posts but don't have anything new to add to the discussion.

Yes, on occasion.

Since the forums are mostly text, I don't have a major problem with it loading threads on my phone (aside from Drachen's yearly one that gets large and filled with media).

It'd be nice for the forums to be responsive (mobile friendly) though, so everything is uniform.

Yes, I for one would like that as my smartphone is utilized by me far more than my pc. And I must say, using my phone for this site is challenging at best, especially the forums 😊
