Read it and weep, fella


I resisted for awhile because I didn't think I'd like messageboard-ing on my phone, but I finally broke down and tried it last night and I like it. I'm using my Android (HTC Incredible) to type this post right now.

Anybody else???

Well your IP would be different and I'm guessing your browser/agent would be as well, but I'd have to really be looking for it in the logs.

One of those things I always wanted to do was create an m.the-w.com mobile version of the board which stripped practically everything except the text, but I've never put the time into it. (Heck, I think this idea even predates me having it - I seem to recall Aaron wanted to set up blind.the-w.com before phones could surf the Internet)

Plus, this site looks pretty good on my phone so *I* don't need it, therefore nobody else needs it either. ;-)

What's REALLY annoying is when I have to log into the server to reset something. I can DO it, but that tiny keyboard isn't doing me any favours. I don't want to ever have to do anything incredibly complex. Fortunately, over the years we've just about eliminated every "easy" way to hack the board, so I haven't had to do a whole lot of stuff away from a laptop recently.

I visit the site frequently with my BB Storm2, and it loads quickly, and I never have any issues. I usually just read the topics from the phone, but I'm fairly certain I've replied a couple of a times.

When I use my Blackberry browser, it looks a little goofy, and I don't think my "mark forum read" clicks are actually registering. It's way too big of a pain to post with that browser anyway, so I'm not too concerned about it.

When I use my Opera Mini browser, it looks completely normal, (although it doesn't fit on the screen). When I make posts with my Blackberry, it shows me as American in the IP Flags.

Welcome home, men of the 2nd Bn, 127th Infantry, 32d "Red Arrow" Brigade, WI Army National Guard! Job well done in Iraq!

I also occasionally check out The W w/ my BlackBerry Bold 9000 over AT&T's 3G network.

Yeah, posting something is a pain in the rear with BB's web browser, but it's easy enough to read. The way you've got the joint set up, Brothers Zim, is fairly easy to read from a mobile phone.

Curious to check it out with a full touchscreen phone, though...

I used to check the boards when I was using an AT&T Tilt Windows Mobile phone, but I had SUPER slow internet access on my phone (T-Mobile WAP, yes even on my smartphone). It looked just fine but it was just too slow for frequent usage.

Now I have an HTC Evo 4G and everything looks great and runs at an acceptable speed. I don't know if it's because I'm running at 3G speeds (at a minimum) or because Android > Windows Mobile 6.5 or just because my phone is much faster now. Regardless of the reason though, it's good enough that I check pretty frequently and even post once in awhile.

Yes, I access it via a HTC Hero & now, also, a Motorola Droid X when I'm bored. Basically from what I can tell the browser included in Chrome minus flash. Webkit style. Though I do agree with CRZ, m.the-w.com would be good. My suggestion is start with the basis of the Dial-up mode & maybe add just tweaks that it loads speedy enough for mobile web. Heck, my mobile web get the board up pretty fast so I can't complain about it not being accessible.

I check the site pretty frequently on my BlackBerry Storm since I can't access the site at work. I've never had any problems other than convincing the phone I've actually hit the little chevrons when trying to look at new posts.

With my current phone (BlackBerry Bold), I find I have to switch to "Column View" to be able to read everything without having to zoom and and scroll left-to-right, but it works. It's like "Column View" increases the font size while Zoom doesn't, or something.

I almost never read this site through my phone, though.

I check it on my iPhone occasionally, but it is kind of a pain because when I zoom into the post-text it cuts off the column with the poster info, so I have to scroll all over the place. It does create the "read the post then identify the poster"-game, which is kind of fun though.

There actually is 50% or more of a full text version of some of the pages, somewhere. I forget why I started this, it was over 5 years ago. I ran across it the other day.

I think it actually works too, we just never made all of the pages (forum, index, etc.) to go with it.
