I suspected that some people would prefer not to have the tabs stuck to the top of the screen, which is fine. There will likely be one of two possible solutions to this: a) we create an option in Account Settings which allows mobile users to "unstick" the navigation so it scrolls naturally with the rest of the page (as it does if you use Skinner Mode), or b) we have an option in Account Settings which allows you to use the alternate two-button navigation on mobile.

Of those two, the former would be a lot easier than the latter. I've definitely considered both, we just didn't have time to include either of them in this latest patch but I can see adding one of them in an upcoming patch.

Yer doing a good job of offering up solutions to people who don’t even have to pay to be here.

I appreciate that a LOT. I know how development goes, this place is a living breathing thing that will never be static and “finished”. And that’s because you care about it and the people that frequent the site.

Cheers for ALL of your work!

They should have gotten rid of the least popular, and added a "Favorites" tab which the user can customize.

I like the look and layout much more.
There's no way to make all of us happy, I guess.
But, it shows they're open to input.

I do not expect to be catered to. Especially at the level of dollars I have contributed. Reminds me to make another donation!
