Mobile friendly, please

Suggestions on improving the site or comments in general?

Mobile friendly, please

Postby HillSpam » 08 Oct 2015, 23:38

For me, mobile is how I like to play diplomacy. Those spare minutes used perusing the map.
So my request is for the site to be mobile friendly. At the very least have large buttons to avoid my constantly expanding and shrinking the page.

Weird, I just prepared my request for the same thing and I see someone else has asked. Is the wink mean you're going to make a mobile version of the entire webpage? Or simply do this:

I think the "mobile friendly" version in that illustration would be good for the PC as well.

Has this idea lost steam? Surprised more aren't interested in this enhancement.

I think lots of people are interested. I just think it isn't an entirely new discussion, and Dipsy would be the one to implement it, who is already quite busy. So I just think it's lower down on the priority list. :D

How are priorities decided?

I'd suggest publishing the list of proposals with a ranking vote limited to premium members.

I believe Mods prioritize what can be done with the time they have to volunteer to the site. Remember they are volunteers and this is not their day jobs.

So cut them a little slack, give them some respect and be happy with what you get when you get it. Besides not every decision can come down to a democratic vote among players...jeez, talk about the inefficiencies that would create!

Also you might be confusing premium membership with special voting rights. Yeahhhhh that will never happen and frankly shouldn't ever happen.

Asking a reasonable question and making a constructive suggestion do not amount to showing disrespect.

Not only is it NEVER going to be a vote...but as Gambit said it depends on what we (and by we I mean dipsy) has time to do. And everything I have heard every time a mobile friendly version comes up is that is going to take basically a total re-write of basically EVERYTHING we have in order to make it feasible.

So not only is it a time issue, but its a money issue that will have to be figured out how much and when and who could/would even do any of this. So there's a LOT going on with more mobile friendly versions. Its always on the backburner of something that we are looking at...but its getting there. And just because something is voted up / down ... doesn't mean that its going to happen faster / slower.
