Why can't you just middle click instead of normal click? I always find it dubious when sites decide whether to pen things in tabs for me.

Abolish Life. Abolish a job. Abolish a career. Abolish a family. Abolish a fucking big television, Abolish washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical tin openers. Abolish good health, low cholesterol, and dental insurance. Abolish fixed interest mortgage repayments. Abolish a starter home. Abolish your friends. Abolish leisurewear and matching luggage. Abolish a three-piece suit on hire purchase in a range of fucking fabrics. Abolish DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on Sunday morning. Abolish sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth. Abolish rotting away at the end of it all, pissing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked up brats you spawned to replace yourselves. Abolish your future. Abolish life... But why would I want to do a thing like that? I chose not to Abolish life. I chose somethin' else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you've got care-tags?

i use my iphone for the majority of my web browsing and it baffles me that anyone would desire a mobile skin. mobile interfaces are my own personal hell.

artodia looks like the best choice and i will look at it this weekend, plz get in touch if there are any other suggestions.

My only problem is viewing the rep a post has in mobile is very painful.

By the way, I think I potentially found a problem/bug on the site... who should I talk to?

agree with ben. i use full desktop 100% of the time while mobile browsing. haven't seen many mobile skins that don't strip away most of the functionality of the site.

Also, how about a requirement on users to make a certain number of posts before they can start a thread? Something small like 10. Could prevent bots from spamming the site while discouraging people from joining only to sell in the market section.

fuck tapatalk, those popups are annoying and they're slimey as fuck with app updates. every so often when they release a new paid version they turn ads on in the old paid version to force people to buy the new one.

There are plenty of mobile themes if you dig around. This guy would be my choice: http://themeforest.net/item/marina-resp ... me/6509951

Fully responsive so it would look good on computers/tablets/phones and everything in between... Responsive images so you wouldn't have to worry about people linking giant imgur photos. etc...

Feedback should be required in the WAYWT thread for rep because I'd like to know what people like as well as what others don't like about certain fits

I'm not sure how you imagine such a requirement being enforced but no, that's not really an option.

Just ask for advice/feedback.

You should be able to tell a lot from a users vote based on who they are, the benefit of it not being anonymous

how about making the market only visible to members? I'd feel better about giving good deals for my things if it was more likely to stay in the community, and this might also discourage drive by postings.

Is it possible to implement a minimum post count for making threads? This is getting ridiculous.

Likely to end up with them just posting in existing threads (we've had that before) and then some braindead mod accidentally deleting an important thread in his or her haste to crush the spam i'm sorry

There are mods for blocking any posts with links in them below a certain threshold - that might have more success
