For those of you who browse TPR on your mobile phone, please try this "mobile theme".
Here's how to enable it....
1. Click "User Control Panel."
2. Select "Board Preferences"
3. Choose "Mobie" and click "Submit."
When you refresh the page you'll be on the mobile theme.
NOTE that this theme does not look well on a desktop and as of right now I don't have a way to auto-detect or auto-change themes so you'd have to do it manually. But if you're someone who browses the forum almost exclusively on your mobile device this may be a good option for you.

I enjoy it. It is definitely better than pinching and zooming (and better than Tapatalk since all forum features are retained from what I can tell), although I personally would not use it much since I do almost all of my TPR browsing on my computer.
Tried it out by squishing my browser as if it were a phone. It's pretty well-organized, that's for sure.
There should be more variation in the colors used, when everything is white text with a blue bubble it's difficult to see at a glance which are page numbers, which is the "new post" warning, etc... But I'm sure that's in the pipeline.
Possible bug, YouTube videos don't seem to scale in the window properly. It's not a huge deal as it would go full screen on a mobile device when you clicked the play button, but at certain resolutions the thumbnail gets cut off on the right side (since it's anchored to the left).
It's definitely very useful. It's really only lacking cosmetically.
My Home park is Six Flags America Coaster Count: 80 (I'm getting there lol) Top 10: 1.I305 2.S:TR 3.SkyRush 4.El Toro 5.Valravn 6.WindexCyanide 7.B:TR 8.KK 9. Mineblower 10. Volcano Instagram:kvng_coasters YouTube: Kvng Of Coasters
I don't usually stay signed into TPR on my mobile device, but here's how different aspect ratios affect the cutoff of YouTube videos. You can see how the posts / replies themselves scale just fine, but the YouTube video preview is locked to a specific resolution, and gets cut off on the left browser.
I browsed around the mobile version and here are my thoughts.
- I thought the mobile version loaded very quickly, faster than the desktop version on my mobile device.
- Is there any way to have the color palette to match the desktop version to have more consistency? This is a minor thing, but mobile versions of site's like Reddit or ESPN look close to their desktop version.
- I probably go half and half browsing TPR on my desktop and mobile device. Until it autodetects the device, I will probably stick with the desktop version to avoid having to repeatedly change, but those using it almost entirely on the phone could potentially enjoy this more.

Overall I think the mobile theme is easier to use, and I appreciate not having to constantly zoom to click the right link. I agree with what others have said that it would be nice to have a color scheme similar to the desktop version.
A few other changes I personally would like -Full version of the posting interface (with smilies, text effects, embedded links, etc) -I’d prefer for profile pictures to be visible when reading threads. -I’d like the page navigation to be on the main viewing screen (Instead of having to tap the ‘#’ to see it)
