Hey guys,

Dunno about you, but I'd be visiting now and then depending on my workload at work. But anyway, I have to enter through my phone, and I'd gather even in desktops the following would be greatly appreciated:
A button for the Board index at the bottom of each thread.

And no, the scrolling thing at the bottom won't work, cause you know, the buttons are already small as it is, imagine what do I see on my phone! I'd be using glasses before getting old (er).

I bet Alberto would agree with me. He ate some parasites on some mittens today.

*bites Dinowoman's tail*

When you say the scrolling thing, do you mean the drop-down menu? If so, then I can certainly understand that would be pretty hard to read on a phone.

And stop biting my tail! >:( (:P )

Yeah, the drop down menĂº haha. Can a back to top or back to forum button be placed below? It will make ours lives easier (especially mine lol). It looks as if I'm tickling the phone when I want to go back from a long thread! Hahaha

So you're looking for this maybe?

The easiest thing to do is hit that and then hit the banner at the top of the page, which links back to the board index.

Well, actually one to go to the Board Index. The go to top is the second option, but are you aware how small that button looks on a phone? XD

Yeah. The post I made before my last one was made from my phone.

Would one closer to the size of the New Topic and Reply buttons below the viewpost list be better?

Is that a hassle? I guess it'll do without a back to main page button for the moment. Btw, how big is your screen dude?!

(That or I'm going blind here ;-; )

I don't think it would be that big of a hassle, no. I can probably look into doing it tomorrow if you think it would solve your problem.

My phone is actually kind of small. I don't like the newer larger screened phones because I like one that fits comfortably in my pocket. I just zoom in a bit.

I have to zoom like a lot to get to most buttons. At least the above link to the main board is easy to press, despite the size. What's funny is that when typing sentences for posting, letters turn GIGANTIC. I once thought that I had messed up the format of a post, but thankfully (maybe sadly), that wasn't the case.

Have you considered using a stylus for your phone?

I have to admit I have huge hands and fingers and I don't have this degree of issue.

Is a stylus even an option? I thought most touchscreen phones relied on the electrical conductivity of the skin (something I was disappointed to learn when I got my first smartphone).

Thanks dude!

Btw, here's a pic with no zoom of what I see. Keep in mind that my phone is of the 4 inches type.
