Today I couldn't use my computer, forcing me to surf the web on my itouch. Once I'd logged on to KHI, I realized that we don't have a mobile site which would make it easier for people on the go and it's a bit irritating navigating the site on a mobile device.

So what do you guys think? Should we have a mobile site or is it fine the way it is?

I wouldn't mind a mobile site, but the only problem would be people typing in text message esque language, which is really annoying.

It's a good idea I suppose. I just don't think that the trouble of creating a mobile site would be worth it for the few people who would actually use it, unless it were more like a iPhone/iTouch/iPad App.

I don't have an iPod though lol. But yeah, if your typing names, it could change them to something bad. I once saw someone saying something about some person named Anna, and their iPod changed it to anus lol. But whatever.

And then the voice of the iPhone/Touch speaks the voice to you. :S It scares me sometimes.

Personally, I can see why it's a good thing to have, but ehh; I've toddled on KHI with my iPhone, and the only thing that really bugs me is the buttons being smally on it. Luckily I have pinky fingers. :D

My main problem is the text boxes. Sometimes when I type in them, something messes up and the text is either split in half or not there.

A mobile style would be great. Ideal, even. Though I don't know what resources we'd need for it, or if staff/the owner would even want to go through with it since everyone is so busy these days.

Well, except now; it's winter break. lmfao

You are posting this as if you are going to make a mobile site yourself if there is enough agreement.

I've been browsing on this site with a handheld since I first got an iPhone 3G 2 years ago. I have an iPhone 4 now and I think it's safe to say that anywhere between a third to a half of my posts are made with my phone. I don't think it's difficult at all. So we don't need to mobilize per se, but if it'll help some of you out, then why not?

definitely....
or at least make it so apps like taptalk or other forum apps will work with it. My phone runs on android os and there are alot of apps for forums but none work with this site.

I certainly wouldn't mind it, seeing as about half of my posts are made from my iTouch.

Of course, I don't think it's necessary, per se, but it'd certainly be swell.
