Folks,

So I ran into the phpbb developers at the con last week, and they let me know that there's a new Mobile theme for phpbb. So I could have another stab at creating a phone-friendly version of cookaholics. I'm not gonna do it though if its going to be as underused as the chat has been. So, vote!

I'd use it, but I'd vote for the SFS screen first, or anything else we can do to stop spammers without overwhelming my email with attempted spam registrations.

I would use it if iPad friendly when traveling. Now, I log in from Safari and have not experienced problems. I would not use it on phone since I always have my iPad with me with 4g.

I also agree with Amy. I am a very heavy smartphone user (I work for a smartphone manufacturer) and would definitely use a mobile version if available. However, the volunteers make the board run, and if we can take a load off of them first before adding new features, I'd be quite happy with that.

TL; DR: Do what works best for you and the others who keep us running.

I'm all for progress, Fuzzy, but we still have a wall phone in the kitchen which is my go to phone at home. Doubt I'd ever use it.

I use the iPad for 99% of my internets, and have had no problems.

I would use it, but I have no problem checking in via Safari on my phone and iPad, so I'm not sure a mobile version would be much better

I use a smartphone but am not a fan of many mobile app versions. As long as I can get to the board via someway I'm good. Agree that making the mods and your life easier comes first!
