I'm not sure how a mobile friendly site encourages development of add ons and modifications but if you can think of ways it might I'm sure the brass at vBulletin is listening, just as they always have. You know them, always thinking of the end user first.
Well having a mobile theme would allow developers to respond to their threads for support, etc and it would allow more people to browse the mods perhaps to download at a later time.

It would also benefit this site from an seo perspective.

At any rate we are not talking about a major undertaking here. We are talking about adding a mobile theme to use the forums...

I have used my phone to visit the site and have never had any issues with viewing replying or anything really. Don't really understand why they would need a mobile theme...

Yes you can do it but you are using a desktop theme, text is small when scaled with the desktop version and it is very difficult to edit, etc.

Plus like I said, it is a simple thing adding a mobile theme to just browse the forums.

Just because there are a couple here that do not use mobile devices and do not mind using an inferior method of viewing a website does not mean it would not be beneficial to the site in general and useful to members.

I wonder if any one against the mobile theme does not have a mobile theme on their own site?

On 2 of the sites I help admin, we use Tapatalk...but I hate the way it lazily bypasses most of the plugin hooks and is incapable of rendering LaTeX, not to mention the signature spam you get in posts, unless you use a mod to prevent it. I would never use that hot mess on any site I owned.

We use Tapatalk as well though I really am not too happy with it. We also have the paid one and it is only $10 per month but not so great..

Here I would be happy with anything for mobile.

Yogi Bear, Picnic Baskets, and Boo-Boo - Ranger Smith is not being responsive.

Dead horse? How now brown cow = diphthong

Edit: Silliness aside, I suppose if it irks you that much, a browser plugin should suffice with a little effort put into it;

I've made them myself using a copy of the default theme. Not difficult. Time consuming.

However, a default installation has a lot fewer CSS changes than this site would have.

I wouldn't say I'm opposed to it. If for some reason they do it, great for those requesting it.

But I'll never use it. I'm never on this site from a mobile device.

I would rather beat a dead horse then a live one.

Good info there.. Not sure if it would work for this but neat.

I agree with this. Not all users are here to download mods. Some are here to post questions and find answers and in some cases post answers like I usually do. Surely this site is not all about downloading mods but in most cases posting/browsing.

I know this site will never be responsive. But I just can't understand the justification of "no users will download mods from a mobile phone" as a reason of not making this site not responsive.

I don't want to put words into anyone's mouth but I understand the number of regular users of this site being able to be counted on two hands as a justification.

If the site had thousands or even hundreds of active users, meaning people who do more than download and leave, I'd venture it would get more consideration.

As of right now you can count the number of active developers on one hand and the number of daily users who post on two. If they announced they were shuttering this site when vB4 is declared EOL I would not be surprised in the least.
