We apologize for the downtime. During this maintenance period, the site has been upgraded to the newest versions to enhance the user experience. Please note we are still working on the site, so its appearance may change from time to time over the next few days.
We're pleased to announce that we have launched a new smartphone view on the site, in addition to the recently added mobile view in the last upgrade. This version has been designed to have a cleaner look, to fit really nicely into mobile (iPhone, Android) browsers, and unlike most normal web based skins will also include features that are normally reserved for desktop or phone applications. We built this as we realize you all spend more time today on your phones on the forum than you did 2 years ago, and we want to get the mobile view to a place where you can do everything (and more!) that you can do on desktop.
A few notes as I know many of you may have questions:
* This does not replace the free or paid in-apps that you have, such as any mobile apps. This is web-only.
* This new skin will only show when you access the site from a modern (Android 4+, iPhone) phone. It will not show for older phones or for tablets, blackberries or windows phones.
* Please give us some time as we work through bugs. Give it a try, give us feedback in our mobile thread url, and give it a chance. Every change needs time to get used to!
If you visit the site from your mobile phone, you'll get the new view automatically. You can login, post, reply, upload photos, view your private messages and more. You can also use the legacy mobile view by choosing the top left menu and Exit Enhanced Mobile Mode.
The feedback thread for any bugs, etc, please post below.
**Please let use know the device, software version, and browser being used if reporting any issues.

The pulsating page arrows (not the arrows bit the page # of # they are working with) at the bottom are super annoying though.
Agreed. My other issue is that this format really hinders browsing as everything is huge so you have to do a lot of scrolling and page turning. It also hides all thread titles until you are in a subcategory.
Well now the update seems to be working correctly (last night I was having the same issues as everyone else). I'm on a Samsung Galaxy s3 and it's sure is nice and green. I'll play around with it later after work. It's better then the old site at least now I can type on it.
