If you are using Android and chrome browser to access neogaf,
Paste the following into the address bar and enable the highlighted feature.

Code:
chrome://flags/#enable-framebusting-needs-sameorigin-or-usergesture

Since the Community threads tend to die rather quickly and get little attention due to being hidden on another tab, I'd propose expanding the little Community box at the top of the normal Off-Topic / Gaming sections, so that it lists something like the top 3 recently updated Community posts in a prominent way.

See I sort of want the opposite...for the mobile website anyway. I think having the 'Community' subforum links along with the forum description text is taking too much space on the top portion of main Gaming and Off-Topic sections. It kills some of the minimalism aspect that I liked about gaf (iirc the old layout wasn't like this) where you just click on the Gaming forum and would be hit with a neat list of threads...no scrolling to first thread needed.

Not sure if this has anything to do with the redirects, but why is there a (2) next to the tab in chrome?

I don't know how realistic this is, but I posted this in another thread a while back. I'd like to see console Giveaways sometimes.

I curious though with respect to the mobile layout. For me the notification and message icons don't appear in portrait mode. I have to tilt my phone. I'd imagine checking notifications is one of the more used features.

I can already access my profile from the left menu...so there's a bit of redundancy. I think notifications at the very least should be accessible in the top right.

No, I meant console game giveaways. Not actual consoles :p.
Console game giveaways are tricky because nearly every code for a lot of the major digital storefronts are region-locked.

When we officially source Steam keys for giveaways, we do our best to make sure that they're globally usable and not region locked.

Hopefully soon we'll have our system in place so that users can submit items to be given away. When that happens, there will be the ability for users to give away console games as well as PC games.

Yeah, I forgot about the whole region locked keys on console :(. I guess the only to get by that would to do physical, but then you would have to ship the item, etc. And that just becomes too much.

That last part sounds like a really cool idea.

I just realized something. I can't access my private messages from mobile unless it's just not apparent.

Just needed to say: activity on NeoGAF is great right now :) People post slightly faster than I can keep up, so there's always new comments to read, yet there's not an overwhelming thousands of postings. It's just right.

Feels good to be on NeoGAF during E3.

We briefly had a bad instance in our cloud start chugging about an hour ago (causing intermittent slowdown to some IPs that hit that particular one on page loads, including me haha) but we removed it from the cluster ASAP and everything seems smooth atm. We'll see how it goes for Nintendo!

It was one of the instances not letting the other members get load.

I also changed the behaviour of the way XF handle the connections, it should be faster now.

No E3 GIF thread for world-class gif artists on GAF? Shame! :)

Is there no way to check notifications from vertical mode on the mobile platform? I noticed the other day that I had go horizontal to get the option.

I would like to put in a request for the refresh button on OldGAF that refreshes the thread posts without actually refreshing your page. Was stylish.

Some feedback for mobile site - notifications for likes/replies seem to be pretty borked?

Also, would be great if we got buttons on mobile thread listing enabling users to jump straight to the last unread post on a thread

If you click on a thread, it will automatically go to the last unread post (I’m on ios mobile).

Doesn't seem to work on Android unfortunately - always seems to take me to the first post of the thread.

I'm have Android (FireFox) and it takes me to last unread when I click the title of the thread. I remember there being a setting for it somewhere, where you can choose what it does, but it was probably for the old forum. I'll have to see if it has to be changed on this new forum software too.

The stillness of time.
Ive noticed a few things on mobile that definitely are QoL issues, or perhaps i am just dumb.

  • Private messages cant be viewed on mobile. There is simply no option there.
  • New posts cant be viewed either in a notification on mobile. All i see in my tab is that there are (2) notifications, but there is nothing that makes me able to open this.
  • On desktop, the notification number (which is in red) could be bigger.
On Phone i run Android 7.0 on CM Browser. On Desktop its Firefox Quantum 59.0.2 .

Just poking around for an update to see the status of hide images/avatars, or if it's still in the pipeline.

Also, love the achievements, silly fun, and I wondered who I pissed off to see the 33 alerts when they were implemented, lol.

It's not as bad as it used to be, but is there any movement to get a politics related separate board for all that jazz? I feel like OT has become a political section again with minimal attention going towards other stuff.

Keep up the good work!

I've been getting these more and more, I have to close the tab and re-open. It's REALLY annoying.
That's weird because I was getting them a lot but in the last month or so haven't had it happen at all..

I did clear the 'Cached Data' on my phone recently but I'm not sure if that was the difference maker or not.

i got a few of those in the past week. i almost never even use neogaf on mobile anymore because of all the redirects
I had the ad folks deploy some additional countermeasures for this crap that seemed to work quite well for a couple months at least, until recently. Adddds :|

Take screenshots where possible of the redirect stuff and post in there if possible. Helps with tracking it down.

I'll deploy gaf gold soon as an equitable alternative for us staying ad-supported, with the forthcoming 2.1 launch around the end of the month. But I won't neglect ad experience either and this stuff is not acceptable. Just pass along any relevant info about bad ads to me in here or via PM. Thanks.
