    I'm not trying to argue against a mobile site, but why? I mean, everything works perfectly well on a phone or tablet. I haven't even owned a computer since about 2007.

    At least make it so the mobile site is optional. Like a switch to turn it off.

    This site absolutely does not work well on mobile devices..it's terrible. It's 2018, most people browse sites on their phones so making the site as mobile friendly as possible is basically a necessity at this point.

    I typed this up on my phone and it was brutal...

    Responsive themes work by scaling automatically based on the screen size. Typically anything below 1024 pixels and it'll go into mobile mode.

    What made it so brutal? My login is saved. I click on new posts and read the new posts. When I feel like posting a response, I post a response. I do not use any sort of mobile mode on any forum I am on, and it all works exactly like it would on a computer. What makes it so brutal?

    it does not. you have to constantly zoom in/out on the page just to properly tap buttons and such. that's not how a responsive/mobile theme works.

    actually use a properly done, responsive theme on a phone versus this site, for example, and you'll know the differences between the two.

    The one thing I've noticed is uploading pictures to the site from my phone is IMPOSSIBLE.

    I've never been able to do it.

    It is impossible, at least on an iPhone.

    That was your first mistake.
    It's Gumby's fault.
