    Mobile version clicks you into member profiles A LOT

    Is there anything you guys could do to stop this happening? When you scroll on such a small screen, it's too easy to hit the member names above posts as they roll past. So you constantly end up viewing member profiles - which probably starts to look kind of creepy. It definitely feels creepy. & then you have to mess around getting back out. Which is mildly annoying.

    It's definitely not a huge deal, but is it possible to change it to maybe double-clicking member names before you can access a profile? Or is there some other way of confirming you actually want to look at it? If it would be a huge drama to change it, feel free to completely ignore this & I will continue my (accidental) profile stalking.

    not really. the forum is a product that we buy. we can make some tweaks to it, but it is what it is.

    Hah, only just noticed these. Now that I've got a tablet with the "request desktop site" option I'm seeing a whole new mds! Reps & vistor msgs were things I'd never seen. So now I get the point of visiting - & I discovered you have to click the member name first & then the "view profile" button on the desktop site, so problem fixed. That's pretty much what I was hoping for & it was there all along.

    All it took was my shitty phone getting a virus & forcing me to get the world's smallest tablet (last wk my taxi driver thought it was a special over-sized phone for the sight-impaired). But thanx for answering guys, sorry it took me months to notice, I got kind of caught up in how different mds is if you're not confined solely to mobile. The only downside is I can't use accidental stalking as an excuse anymore. Damn.
