    I see no section for suggestions for the site.

    1) Most forums will include a - + sign on the sections, so for those who don't use particular sections, they can minimize it so it makes loading the page faster as well as less to scroll by. Would make browsing this forum on the droid a tad easier.

    2) With browsing this forum on the droid in mind, I understand this site is tap talk capable and quite frankly, I don't have any interest in it, so why does the forum feel the need to blur out what im reading just to pop and tell me...yet again, that's it's tap talk capable. I've hit ok 2 times and cancel more than a dozen while browsing on my phone

    3) That's it really, <3

    I can't do anything about the structure of the forum - I have no problem with it as I go everywhere in here. But as to your issue with the Tapatalk prompt, most people only get prompted once. Droid users that have cookies blocked in their browsers are the ones who repeatedly get prompted. Open the browser, hit the Menu soft key then Options > Settings and make sure that the Accept cookies box is checked. That should resolve issue.

    Well this being vBulleting, the minimizing the sections should be available stock so it's up to the runner of the forum to change the setting.

    As for cookies, I'm using the dolphin browser and cookies are indeed enabled :) I think the forum just REEAAALLLY wants me to use taptalk haha

    I'll second a "Site Suggestions" addition. If I recall, at some point I was explained why there isnt one, but I still desire every now and again a place to add suggestions.

    I can tell you this. The forum has no interest whether or not you use tapatalk. It was only added on recently by demand of members. If you're having issues like you describe then maybe it's the developer of tapatalk you need to speak to.

    Cereal Killer is probably the most adept member of the staff at using tapatalk. You can feel free to pm for some additional information.

    Have you even sent a PM to an Admin suggesting this change?

    Haha cool :) thnx! As for contacting dev of taptalk, I. Shall do such, thnx guys

    [edit]
    Just another idea, over on a very popular site overclock.net we use a rep system there. Positive only of course. When a person is found to be helpful and/or providing info, the person in need can give them "+rep" by clicking the + symbol. Over time the more rep they get they receive special symbols under there name to show how helpful of a member they are.

    It's more a theoretical and mental thing, it doesn't mean much to some people but users who are getting a lot of rep can track their thank you's etc by rep showing up in their usercp instead of missing out on the thank you's lost in a popular thread so it motivates such a member to keep being helpful.

    Me personally I have decent rep over there, I like logging in seeing my reputation number growing knowing that I've helped some random person on the interwebs.
