That'd be great...
It seems like vBulletin could largely assist with that...

Its a lot of effort to reskin something for mobile.
Hold on, I'll check what its like on my various devices;

Opera Mini (HTC Legend) = standard mode like below, sadly the single column view doesnt work nicely at all on this forum. Too much clutter.

Default webkit thingy (HTC Legend) = Must admit, I dont find this too bad. Obviously a fair bit of panning, but I can get to stuff only marginaly slower then PC.


Networks (Nintendo 3DS) = Layout nearly perfect, blury when zoomed out, looks good zoomed in. Smaller width would help a heck of a lot here though. (this browser lacks the shrinking collumb view that Opera Mini/Opera Wii has sadly). Lots of panning needed. Allthough the panning is at least nice and smooth/fast.

Opera 9ish (Nintendo Wii) = Used it before, so this is from memory, small but looks ok and works fine.

So, yeah, for smaller screens another skin would help.
Dont have the time myself though.

My suggestion was focused specially in two things: Loading time and Screen size.

Let's count an relatively slow internet connection (I don't have 3G), EDGE seems to take a little to load the site, maybe improving amount of data sent would help.

And let's count that my screen is 240x400, MBN looked good zoomed in, like in PC, but zoomed out it was impossible to read anything...

I don't care if it's just a default skin, what matters is the content, and the ability to read it in a convenient way (ie: not panning all the time), I'm pretty sure vBulletin can do this automatically, the new version comes with an android app for browsing forum, I'd be surprised if it didn't support mobile browsing in other ways.

A simple google search will give you vBulletin styles for mobile, just install them and make them be applied automatically according to useragent.

that's a good idea. Sometimes I check the mbn on my phone with the standard nokia browser. It loads fine and it good to read, but it's quite heavy with all images and scripts...

I'll try writing an script in PHP to fetch the site (maybe via RSS?) and display it on mobile when I have time for it...

Mbn isnt dead, in fact, I think activity has increased recently a little.
(probably due to Boxon, as well as the concept art).

I agree, MBN is 10 years old and still active, I suppose that if it was dead, El would have already stopped paying bills for it...

Well, that's true...
I'll manage to get the my mobile version working, when it gets an good state I'll post the link...
Btw, I would be happy to know people phone's resolution (other than 240x400, 240x320 and 960x640)... :P

Everyone: Mods cant be everywhere/watching everything, and its not nice to make work for us. Topics can wonder a bit and thats fine, but deliberately going offtopic and posting crap is different thing.
