Fix-it Guy
 
I'm a forum fix-it guy asked by Sanjay to help with genmay.

What do you think is the most broken part of the website?
How would you improve it?

Only serious replies will be considered.

Browsing the site on mobile = = constant, relentless redirection to the app store. Even without tapping anywhere on screen! That needs to stop, because it makes the site totally unusable.

Feel free to leave that intact if you must, but go to a subscription system. People who pay (or have the sub gifted to them) are 100% ad free on desktop and mobile browsers.

If possible, can you give Pyramid control over smilies? A lot of them are outmoded, and more of a nuisance than anything.

Example: The entrance gate to Baloneyflaps's property looks like shit because the brick wall he laid is crooked and lopsided.

There ARE others which need to be modified, I know you can probably blow "trance" away right now but some other smilies need to be deliberated/discussed prior to making any changes

Can you bring "Trinity" back in any capacity? (Forum spamming bot.)

GhEttOrAiD 07-30-2015 02:54 PM

Oh, also... Our moderation staff are a bit lackluster. I should be promoted to put the fear of God back in them. Remind them that they're not untouchable.

Yeah, the site is absolutely unusable on a mobile device on regular browsers like FF, Chrome, etc., due to constant redirection to app/play stores by the advertisers.

You can use Tapatalk to bypass all this but Tapatalk (or genmay) doesn't render BB code properly so the rest of the userbase not using Tapatalk has to literally see the BB code in the post.

There's no real good solution on Android (I've tried ABP as a stand alone app for the entire device and that particular device's OS or as an app/addon to a specific browser or as a combination of the two with some relief, but it's minimal)

On iPhone/iOS I've found that paring the Ad Block app (not associated with ABP afaik and not free) along with the Dolphin browser blocks the redirects 100% of the time... but, c'mon, that's just too much work for most and totally shitty to ask people to have to go through all that just to view the site (I didn't mind researching and figuring it out, but most - ESPECIALLY NEW, YOUNG USERS ON MOBILE DEVICES - don't want to deal with that shyt).
