Responsive Board

Hi!

It's just a question : why your board/forum is not responsive (optimized for mobile / tablet viewers) its just so hard to check here only with my laptop :/

PS ! background Image is to heavy and so ugly (no offense!)

PSS ! and There I think you might want to reconsider the way your showing gameforge banners here... They are so annoying!

ok I'm done. Sorry to be so lame. just felt I need to explain what I think it's wrong as a web designer myself :) good job for creating and moderating such an awesome board and best luck with whatever your doing in future :love:

Long story short :) this is partly due to the version of board software currently running on our boards. Unfortunately until we upgrade we don't have a lot of choice to a few of the things you've mentioned. Hopefully that will come sooner rather than later, however.

Do not meddle with dragons, for you are crunchy and good with ketchup.

By the way, Frozen, I'm not sure what you mean in regards to mobile and tablet users. I know I personally will check the boards from my phone (using Chrome) and it seems to work fine.


But baka, how can you be the cop if you're not playing?

There is a great mistake : it force people to scroll both horizontally and vertically. Its so bad when it comes to talk about user experience. 2nd mistake is about the animations (for example emoticons, animations of profile pictures , hover animations , ...). 3rd mistake is this high resolution background which is loading everywhere :) even when there is not enough space for it to be shown clearly in the back. and advertises are just so annoying in low resolution devices (which are mysteriously gone right now :P)

The better approach is to make some different pages for different devices. or changing CSS files for specific resolutions.

@Turkeh Lets see what's happening in future :) ty for considering my opinions

Ad that was coming from the top right corner was really annoying.Even ad blockers would make it disappear until you navigate to new page on the boards and then there we go again...

Yeah they are gone now.Hopefully there will be an option that once we close that ad, it won`t reopen at least during that specific session.

or you can show some banners in top /bottom of the page (inside it) never show pop ups / modules out of page. they make users angry :)

and I'm agreed with Lord Aragorn . you can let the people decide if they want to see ads longer or its enough . showing it more than necessary make them angry and lead to ignoring usually :)

I am cool with side, top and bottom ads, but pop up sort of ads is annoying.Not just here but anywhere on the web.

I browse the board daily also from my phone... why I haven't see any popup ad, only in the top and side?

no! the one your calling a side ad was a out of page module. it wasn't popup but its not inside the page. in different resolutions it shows different results. :)

I don't see any ads on the page using my phone, Can't complain tho.. I'm loving it! However, I do agree with the fact that I have to scroll both horizontally and vertically to read

annoys me.

As I said before ,all the ads are mysteriously gone for some times (right after publishing this post). I wasn't here for a long time before that. so I don't have a clue about before. but in my little time I was here in your community I saw a very big ad in right top side of my browsers in all my devices (phone , tablet and laptop) all the same suggesting there is no resolution limit for them :) so I felt it's necessary to be mentioned somewhere for further developments and plans. :)

That ad goes and comes back.So it will probably be back again.


@Draxo

Not that a new windows pops out, but it was popping out from top right and covered almost quarter of the screen.One more observation is that, some time after this thread, ad remained there but there was no content in it.Basically I could see the board through it, the only thing visible was the border outline of ad and X button to close it.I guess they are doing something about it.
