How do you view the forums?

Post by fonixmunkee » Sun Apr 15, 2012 6:12 pm

I'd like to make a few changes to the working aspects of the forums in the next few days. It's nothing major...a new theme, some new features, etc. etc. But before I do too much, I wanted to find out how everyone reads the forums. So I'm throwing up a poll question for a few days to get an idea of where to focus my improvments:

How do you view the forums? Do you use your desktop computer? Or your phone? Or your tablet? Do you use the RSS feeds in an RSS reader? You can pick multiple options (up to three)

This having troubles making the connection. How can I determine if I make use of this RSS stuff. Whatever is the automatic present is the one I use. I have not changed anything via the profile tools except the inferface color because the old color causing a bug in my message box.

Probably because you're using a Mac. :P

Seriously though, make sure you are only submitting three options. I tried submitting with the "MAC" option and it worked fine.

I tried to submit only one option, "A Mac". Same error message with both Safari and Firefox.


Edited to add: Vote for "A Mac" has been submitted and accepted.
