There are a few suggestions for site enhancement.
I doubt anyone would be resistant to changes that make the site more user friendly and increase traffic.
I think it's a case of Spanner finding the time to implement any such changes, so it may take a little bit of time.
If we have a consensus though(no objections or problems with an upgrade) can we say that he has the green light....at his convenience... to proceed with any adjustment that improves access to the site.

Yes, green light from me, and from all of us I'm sure.

Yes it's fine, the site has to do what the site has to do! ;)

...and traffic to the site will naturally increase once folks have more to talk about, ie when the real stuff starts.

My main access is via laptop or android tablet. Very occasionaly via smartphone but this is very small and cumbersome so only used for quick checks. If there is a way to improve the phone access I would like to see it followed up. As others have said, many people use phones for most of tbeir internet activities nowadays so it's important for us to keep up with this.

The Tapatalk app looks like a very straight forward installation. It seems to just be a package installed via the forum admin panel

I don't visit any other forums at all these days and don't visit this one very much in the off season because I haven't got much to contribute and am not overly keen on pure speculation.

I would not have been able to contribute in the first place if I had not been able to do so anonymously.  Having said that, it was good to catch up with an occasional member from time to time - greetings to Crash plus Mr + Mrs Baggers :)

If it ain't broken, don't fix it.

I expect to get more involved again when the season comes around.

Ahh the Nokia approach. Don't change and hopefully the world won't.   ;D

Whilst anonymity is obviously important to some, fixing things up (and in this latest discussion, making it easier to browse on mobile devices) doesn't need to come at a cost of anonymity.

A mobile friendly version of this site would be awesome, I mostly use my laptop for this site, my phone occasionally when I am away from home.
