    If I am out and about I can usually survive without logging in to LPSG. My vote goes for no i'm afraid.

    It's not like you can open LPSG on your BlackBerry at the dinner table vs MySpace.
    I'd have to say No as well.

    You mean like the mobile version of facebook but with more penises? Hmm... that might be a bit tricky when in public space.

    I kinda agree, though rather than a 'no' vote, I went for the 'don't really care'. If some folks have to be glued to their mobile phones, then so be it.

    But until phones get more user friendly (even the vaunted iPhone sucks when it comes to pics being sent by phone...and I love my Macs) and access charges drop, then there really is no reason to spend the effort to be getting on to LPSG on my mobile.

    As for you of you that do, go for it! I'm sure you'll have a great time.

    You can view LPSG on an iPhone or iPod Touch.
    Don't as me how I know this... it'll make me sound as if I'm too addicted to this place. :biggrin:

    With that said, however, it would be interesting to see an app dedicated to these forums in the same fashion as FaceBook or MySpace. It would never get on the Apple Directory due to its explicit nature, but if an individual download could be made then I'm sure some people would go for it.

    What i meant by mobile friendly is the ability to get on on any mobile device. Not everyone has a high end or expensive phone, and sometimes the phones say things like "not enough memory" when going to normal sites. Im pretty sure no one really checks lpsg all the time, but to be able to get on while on a long train car or busride would be cool.
    Im also sure that people wont be able to see what you are doing on a phone, as most screens are no more than 2-4 inches. I personally dont come to lpsg to see users pics. I use it as a social network. Im not a huge fan of porn n pics in the first place, although it may seem like it from my sig. Lol

    It already is mobile friendly. If you are having problems viewing it on your cell, then the problem is most likely your phone not the site.

    It's been mobile forever.

    And like QT says, if you can't view it on your cell phone, then your phone/plan doesn't give you "real internet"

    Do you mean .mobi?

    I think that going mobi would be a big mistake because it's unnecessary and this site would lose much of it's branding. I have found this site to be very easy to use on the iTouch. I think this site would lose much of it's branding if it switched to .mobi.

    LPSG has an impressive thumbprint on the Web, and particularly on Google. I don't think that this should be messed with.

    I actually prefer searching this site through Google rather than this site's horrible--almost useless--search engine.

    apple probably remembered to leave out the ability for the iphone to be able to do that















    so we'd buy another one
