Before I even start, I already signed the little petition thingy to revert the changes until they can fix the issue. Get off mah d.

But let's all calm down a little about the "mobile update" people. It actually isn't the end of the world. It's kinda shitty for a few random reasons now, but once those reasons are fixed, I could see myself using it a lot. It would certainly make navigating around on my phone a lot easier.

The two things, in my opinion, that they need to fix.

1. Notifications. This one is pretty obvious. The new format has absolutely f*ck all way of showing when someone's replied to you or sent you a message. It makes it a pain to keep up with conversations and, in general, use the site. This is a need-to-fix.

2. The zoom size on the screen. At least on my iPhone (I believe it's a 4S), whenever you open the mobile page it has the text super zoomed in so that you can't see anything without rezooming the page and messing with everything. It keeps going microscopic zoom with each page load, so constantly haggling with the zoom on the screen is a pain.

But once those two things are fixed, I feel like it would certainly be a lot easier to use than the old format on mobile devices.

I liked being able to click a message directly from my notifications thing, I liked being able to click to the forums directly without having to click on that new thing that replaced the icon (which, I also found much more ascetically pleasing). I find everything to look like sh!t on mobile - the forums, THE DEBATES, the polls...

Really, there is no positive. There has been no functionality change for the better, and I don't think it'll actually end up with me liking the site more on mobile.

False. If me being slightly inconvenienced by the current mobile layout of a debating website I occasionally frequent is not a big deal, I don't know what is.

It's not really easier to navigate. You have to scroll down forever just to read someone's forum post, to read a debate, and to read a poll. It's an unnecessary burden.

I'm going to demand a refund for my gold status. Wanna conference that call with me? You are better at words then I are.
