    On my smartphone, which is all I use now:

    When I click on icon to choose forums, the list appears, but I need to 'scroll' about 10 times to move the little gray bar down far enough to choose debates or spirituality. I need to do this every time I exit a forum and want to choose another.

    I don't appear to be able to access the 'little gray bar' with my thumb.

    A minor annoyance, but figured I'd throw in my 2 cents.

    It's actually getting annoying pretty quickly, and seems unnecessary because the phone scrolls on its own and doesn't require that 'gray bar'.

    The forums are arranged by activity now - so if a forum has received new posts, it will require no scrolling at all.

    I'm not talking about when already in a forum.

    When I hit the icon that has 3 horizontal lines, it prompts me to select 'new game', 'forums', etc.

    When I select 'forums' is when I must scroll and scroll (watching the little gray bar on right), at least 9 times, and only then can I select spirituality, which is at the bottom of list.

    Maybe I'm not explaining properly, but it's new and never happened in the past.

    Can we do something about scrolling the various data tables. I am talking about tables like 'most active player', and 'my performance'. There are several colums of numerical data. As you scroll down the page, the table header goes off the top of the page and makes it a little confusing to remember what the different data numbers represent.

    In other words, is it possible to freeze the header in place and just scroll the data columns?

    I asked this during the beta testing phase but maybe you missed it.

    This is not an easy thing to add. If you know of another site that does this well, then I'll take a look at how they handle mobile, etc. PM me any recommendations.

    Here is a site with a good example. It works on an ipad, can people check it on other devices please? I think the two examples are two different techniques.

    Can't you merely select Forums from the Menu and then All Public Forums?

    Then you get the usage ordered list of forums.

    This is exactly what I was asking about. The header that identifies the data in each column stays frozen at the top, and only the data scrolls.

    I viewed it on my laptop using windows 7 and firefox.
    I think this would be a very benificial improvement when viewing all of our tables!

    Yes, but I was doing it the other way for so long, and got used to it.

    You're not the boss of me Suzianne. 😀

    **is my courting getting any better?

    Yeah, which is great for addicts, but a bother for those of us who only visit the forums once a day or so. You get to miss things.
