Updated Smartphone Feedback Thread

We're pleased to announce that we have launched a new smartphone view on the site, in addition to the recently added mobile view in the last upgrade. This version has been designed to have a cleaner look, to fit really nicely into mobile (iPhone, Android) browsers, and unlike most normal web based skins will also include features that are normally reserved for desktop or phone applications. We built this as we realize you all spend more time today on your phones on the forum than you did 2 years ago, and we want to get the mobile view to a place where you can do everything (and more!) that you can do on desktop.

A few notes as I know many of you may have questions:

* This does not replace the free or paid in-apps that you have, such as any mobile apps. This is web-only.
* This new skin will only show when you access the site from a modern (Android 4+, iPhone) phone. It will not show for older phones or for tablets, blackberries or windows phones.
* Please give us some time as we work through bugs. Give it a try, give us feedback in our mobile thread url, and give it a chance. Every change needs time to get used to!​


If you visit the site from your mobile phone, you'll get the new view automatically. You can login, post, reply, upload photos, view your private messages and more. You can also use the legacy mobile view by choosing the top left menu and Exit Enhanced Mobile Mode.

The feedback thread for any bugs, etc, please post below.

**Please let use know the device, software version, and browser being used if reporting any issues.

Thanks!

Smartphone/mobile view and updates of the site is great. However, your help is needed for a fix to eliminate/reduce, the amount of spam and non-forum posts that is being viewed on this forum. Your assistance is sincerely appreciated.

Hey there,

Thanks for the praise on the smartphone view, and letting us know to re-visit our spam protection.

We have implemented some new spam protection features and that should sort those bots out.

Thanks!

where are they posting mostly?

I'll see if I can close off that section to newcomers.

These are the most common, but Drivetrain, EMS Tuning, Site Support & Discussion, and half a dozen others also get them.

Closing the Nationals Meet Discussion section (move to Archives) is something I've thought about doing because there hasn't been one in forever, and I know I can turn sections into historical read-only sections really easily. I'd look at adding a captcha on thread creation for users with less than 30 days or 15 posts. 99.9% of the spam users created the account within the past 72 hrs, and if you look at the IP ban list additions (I assume it lets you sort by date added) you'll see the patterns and blocks of IPs you can blacklist and keep them out for at least a little bit.
