Maybe there is a mobile version I'm not aware of?  This site is about the least user friendly place to try to navigate on an iPod or any small touch screen. Trying to scroll down the list in the forums there are a million different sensitive spots that I brush just firmly enough to send me to subscribe to the magazine or visit another page or jump back to the beginning.

If we do ever get an updated site here, just adding some space between the headings and all the options of new topic, page 1,2,3 etc would really cut the entertainment value of watching me try to navigate - and since no one watches me but the blind dog. It really is a waste.

I've posted from my phone a few times.  It's too frustrating to bother with most of the time.

The current plan is to upgrade to the etch-a-sketch version first, then the can and string 2.1, followed by the cardboard cut-out with upgraded Crayola colors. There are no current plans to make a tablet or smartphone (mobile) version other than the previous can and string version. It will be considered when Windows 15.3 is released.

The upgrade from Lincoln Logs to Legos will take a while.  All those organic to inorganic conversions, you know.  Carbons to polymers.

I haven't heard about the can and string version Tigger mentions, but I have heard suggestions to adopt yodeling.  It is, after all, a broadcast protocol, but not entirely omnidirectional.  Yodeling could bring a whole new dimension to TPA.

Wait, when did we move from semafor? Rumors of morse code abound, too. I don't like it, not one bit I don't.

As for me, I'LL NEVER RELINQUISH MY GOD-GIVEN RIGHT TO YELL AT INAPPROPRIATE MOMENTS.

and you people are why the frustration of log out and trailhead register being both within the same finger space is worth dealing with when my husband and sons have the computer going on gaming all day.

It's really no problem. Just "expand" the page with your fingers. Or, turn the phone sideways and the text will become bigger.

Yeah, and then you can see about two letters at a time!  I don't read/post from a phone, but even on the iPad, the tendency to accidentally report you all for violations while trying to scroll is very strong.  There are just too many links!

What I routinely do on my iPhone. Probably post more from that than a laptop or iPad...

I expand the page and turn it sideways of course but I have trifocals and numb fingers so I still end up logged out or opening the thread two above or . . .

Could a stylus help? There's a number of them out there for touch screens.
