Suggestion....On the front page, place the Latest thread post picture scroller thing above the Latest images from our media gallery picture scroller thing.

Here's what the front page looks like on my phone. As the top images only change once, sometimes maybe twice a week It looks like there is very little activity on site. I reckon the Latest thread post would engage both regulars and passers by more.
Third.

Third that! OK, fourth that!

Another similar suggestion....
The message scroller at the top of the page is on every page. I wonder if it makes sense to have it only on the front page?

I suggested (further up this thread) the scroller at the top of every page is redundant and probably better only on the front page as it takes up so much space that pushes the content people come here for further down and off the page, especially on a mobile platform where space is a premium.

But this thread (the only content on that scroller) was started 5 months ago and hasn't been touched in over a month. Surely the content of the scroller is no longer current, relevant or accurate any more? It makes the site look less cared for than it is.

While I'm on the subject..... Next/previous page buttons at the top of a page (as well as at the bottom) would be welcome (and there's plenty of space that's taken up by the scroller), it's currently hidden by CSS. If i'm working my way through a thread and have to flip forward or backward, I have to scroll to the bottom of the page or rotate my phone to landscape. Not always easy if I'm, for instance, holding a glass of wine with my orther hand, eating lobster thermidor or driving a car!!!! :eek:

And the issue of the dates on the ‘newsletter/member’ posts? :)

Poor Matt. I think we should have a whip around for a nice tin of biscuits (cookies, for everyone else in the world).

The Mobi Member albums? If that's what you mean I'm thinking maybe the albums, apart from the winners albums are redundant nowadays.
I used to upload all my b/w's into an album but after the 'change' I discovered after uploading 6, it embarrassingly took up the whole front page :oops:
So I stopped ! Nick Leon did the same and hasn't been seen for weeks :eek:

No, the text based scroller.

The info on them is out of date, the link is the same on each panel and takes you to this thread, which is out of date itself and the scroller is, redundantly, on every page on mobitog.
It's in the prime content space directly under the blue navigation header. On my mobile it takes 100% of the display space below the nav header in landscape and about 70% in portrait. On my tablet that's more like 70% and 33%. In each case I have to scroll to the content I care about. Not that I don't care about the site update, I just don't continuously care about it for 5 months running.

Not sure about the album thing. :eek:
