The board looks very very different in mobile. I appreciated how there were bigger buttons on the old page for my clumsy thumbs. This doesn't seem to be a mobile-specific version of the page.
I just wanted to update this that I was completely wrong - there is a mobile-specific version of the website, and does seem to have nice features. However it does use much smaller icons than the previous version of the page, and so is hard to use. Is there some setting that enables a larger font and icon size for the page?
Not that I'm aware of. What are you using it on? On the previous version of the Board, I had implemented a separate mobile version. I was looking for an updated mobile version, but didn't find any. Then I tried my phone, and the new style seems to work very well on my Android phone, so I figure that that is why there isn't a separate mobile style like there had been -- the new style accounts for mobile devices.

Same experience here, no link to mobile, pretty much the same as the regular board (ok, it's slightly different, but it's nowhere near the difference between the mobile and regular of the previous version), I even don't have that much of a problem pressing the buttons, and if I did, pinch and zoom still work.

Thanks to Volante, the polls now have the correct percentages and the bars are showing up properly. We're still working on getting the participants' votes back on there as well.

Im wondering if the board wants that on. Many of us use the face icons to comment exactly which ones we got right in the comments, and several more don't even look at who the exact answered were, or care most of the time.

It was discussed long ago, and people said they wanted it. I certainly liked having that feature. If there is significant opposition to it, we don't need to have it.

There are also people who compile poll results, and I like seeing how many FJs I've gotten right in a season without having to go through and count them myself.

I always find it interesting, especially when people don't otherwise post.

Seems I had forgotten about that vote, and was unaware. Rather than having people add on to it, I'll definitely approve of alietr's efforts to have the names restored.

I don't remember seeing this mentioned in this thread, but I am not receiving an email when I get a PM. I verified that the box is checked in the notifications section.

Yeah, Andy mentioned in the e-mail notifications issue in the first post. Anybody have any ideas?

I got one, but it came from agefen at comcast dot net rather than andy at jboard dot tv. Maybe it's a spam filter issue?

Actually, that was another mod that I had added to do that. I'm going to have to dig around and see if there's an updated one, but I hadn't noticed it the last time I looked through the mods.

While you're at it, see if there's a YouTube mod, because our inline YouTube video thing seems to be broken. Either that or it's an HTTP vs. HTTPS issue.

If it's the same as before, (HTTP works, HTTPS doesn't), then no change; HTTPS didn't embed previously either.
If HTTP isn't working either, that's new.

Thanks to Volante, the polls now have the correct percentages and the bars are showing up properly. We're still working on getting the participants' votes back on there as well.
The "total votes" below the poll results is still the sum of boxes checked rather than the number of voters.
