I'm not sure about that Discourse, Timmy... (Maybe its just such a huge change) I guess if you wanted to make the forum more 'responsive' I wouldn't mind Invision Power or ZenForo. ;)

My 2¢ :)

I'm with whatever forum software that allows me not to see certain boards all together on Active Topics lists, like screenshots etc.

Rather than "No, I don't care", I'd vote "No, please don't!"

So far every site/forum that's "updated" recently to be more mobile friendly has sacrificed pc-user-friendlyness. I don't see what's so "responsive" about it when everything is designed solely for tiny and vertical mobile screens, ending up with bigger fonts, cryptic buttons for links, and tons of empty space despite having social media hookups everywhere. Maybe I'm getting old. :lol:

then these sites have done it all wrong

responsive means that the forum detects which device you are on and loads the design that is optimized for it and not modify the main theme to fit on mobile devices too

Intel Core i5 6600K - Gigabyte GTX 1070 G1 Gaming SLI - Gigabyte GA-Z170X-Ultra Gaming - 16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4-3000

Speaking of theme, it's time for a new one. This dark theme is a little depressing, give us something nice and bright and truck-y

Or make it a Welsh theme for Reef. :lol:

Surprised no one suggested SMF already :o

It's fairly similar to phpBB, highly customisable and mobile friendly. And free!
