This Forum Not iPad Friendly
I will admit up-front that this is a wind-up but...
The page navigation "buttons" are quite diffulct to use on the iPad because the "buttons" are so small.
This is an issue with the iPad in general, but perhaps this forum should design the web pages to be more iPad friendly.

First of all, welcome to the forum!
Actually, I have notice the exact same thing (as I am sure we all have), but I have just gotten used to putting my thumb and index finger on the screen and zooming in on the numbers, then pinching the screen back down to normal size after I make my selection.
Other than that, this is a very friendly forum!
Same here. That's how I navigate much of the Internet these days. I don't mind at all, though I suppose iPad friendly forums might be a welcome addition to the web.

I am not just whinging by the. I am happy with my iPad and this Forum.
Most don't have to see the Flash banner ads though.
You win some, you lose some.....
I've felt the forum was not iPad friendly on the first day I got mine.
My main beef was with the smilies. For instance in an ordinary reply box the smilies are accessed through a roll down menu that you only see part of. It took me two weeks to find out that I could roll down more of that menu by dragging with two fingers.
In a reply box, smilies are limited in number so when you tap on more the page closes to open another one. Yuck! The icons look like two inches of pixelated color mess. Not cute.
If I were the owner I'd give the whole site a shakedown to change the appearance and to make it look and feel like an iPad app. Even to someone coming in on a computer.
Don't you feel it would be more relevant?

I have nothing to add. Speechless, actually. Which some might say is a good thing.
Uhhhm, the forum may not as ipad friendly as one would want it to be ( we all have our wants )
BUT , the members are!
Fate is not by CHANCE but by CHOICE.
