It is very mobile friendly. Is there a signature or profile picture option? It's not shown on my mobile if it is.

Not shown on mobile version. Full desktop site available though with usual options. Same layout as old forums really.

In some respects, this might even be better than the NG Forums, as I can see there are video links available too!

I know most forums are the same, but is there any way of putting most recent posts first in a thread?

On mobile it's a pain to have to click in to a thread that has more than one page then click page 2. Maybe that's just a mobile though. Clicking through 150 pages of now playing however would take forever haha

I wonder if there are any more theme options for the mobile site. It's got a bit of an iOS 6 thing going on at the moment

Can you reduce the minimum character length for thread titles?

There is but it is confusing as hell.

Not at the moment but there is a thread on the support forums about adding a Last Page button to the mobile version. 

With the mobile version of the site you can easily switch to the normal view by selecting Classic Version from the drop down menu in the top right corner of the screen. you can then switch back to the mobile version via the options on the bottom of every page. Not a perfect solution but better than nothing!

The mobile version is not editable by me so you're stuck with its retro chic Laughing 

Moozo wrote:Can you reduce the minimum character length for thread titles?

I can't see it as an option anywhere and the support forums are coming up empty for me. What's the minimum number of characters at the moment?

Those look like upper limits of things we'll never reach.
Perhaps there's just not an option.

The minimum characters for thread titles is 10 at present

Well a minimum of 10 does stop an influx of "Free UGs" threads Very Happy
