TFS Mobile
I was at Starbucks last week waiting for the BF to come pick me up. It took him FOREVER, so I decided to go on TFS to cure my boredom. Unfortunately it took forever for the page to load (and it took up so much of my monthly mobile internet bandwidth) - I figured that TFS doesn't have a mobile site.

I think it would be a great idea if TFS could go mobile though, especially for those who have to sit through boring lectures or ridiculously long train rides all the time. Opinions?

^I was thinking the same. I have unlimited bandwidth, but when a website takes a while to load (more than 5 mins), it just stops loading all together because it renders the site as being inaccessible.

Although, I figure it would take a bit of financing to set up a separate mobile site.

Yay! I don't think it would be too costly to make a mobile version of TFS right? Basically wouldn't it just be TFS minus the avatars, CSS & ads?

I don't think that's in the works for the company that owns us ... since they actually are an ad company. They must have the ads for their clients .... without ads there would be no income to pay for this.

I'm not a techie ... so I could be way off base here: But many of our threads are 1.000 and up to 5,000 posts long (probably why it takes so long to load) and a large portion of that is images. I would think we'd have to loose most of those if we went mobile ... so what's the point, if we can't access all or our images?

I use an iPhone 3G and tFS is really fast and very easy to use. I'm practically always on it, even when I shouldn't be.

Regarding this topic. tFS now has a mobile-friendly version right? But it seems to have a number of limitations...

yeah, I always switch it back to the full version because I can't see any photos, and let's be honest, what's a tfs post without photos?
