The lights are on
We're updating the site tonight.
i echo meta, you guys do a great job, joey. and i'm happy to help if i can.
the only vid i tried tonight on the droid was the crysis 2 demo (not sure if that was with the new tech). anyway weirdly when i expanded the view and tried to watch it was laggy and would only play whenever i touched the screen lol. but when i watched it at its default size it was fine, even when i expanded it after having started playback it was fine.
the mobile format works well on my droid. the only issue i have is that i can't reply to conversations, i.e. i can't type a response. however, i can type and post replies in discussion threads or blogs (maybe even user page comments if i remember tho it's been awhile).
regarding on pc internet explorer, most functions work fine, though sometimes pix won't download (seems to be universal though as when i'm having trouble seeing them apparently so do others). the biggest issue, however, is with connecting to successive pages on multiple page articles. usually i can't link at all, though sometimes it will refresh the same page but i can never link to a subsequent page.
interestingly, i can link to subsequent pages in the same article using my droid, but then that's with the google browser (right?). so that's what i have for now. thanks for asking. i hope that was helpful. i'll try to monitor things like that and post feedback as appropriate.
GIO Usage Guidelines/The Newcomer Cheat Sheet/Terms and Conditions
This is helpful. Thanks. I thought the multiple page article paging was fixed. We'll have to investigate that bug further. As for the mobile experience, I'll let Mike know about it. He's the one that tests things on the site.
My dataplan only allows 25mb of data a month. I'm afraid that if I visit GIO I'll reach that cap on the front page. Any plans for a mobile page for people like me who own a "no phone left behind"?
We do have plans for a mobile version of the site, I just don't know what the time frame is for it. But you bring up a good point. Have you tried consuming our RSS feeds via your phone?
Can we do something about posting on here and following threads? I hate that it automatically emails me and starts me off following every thread I post in. Is there a setting for this somewhere?
I'm not sure if this is the proper place to post this (direct me to the right place if it's not) but I am not able to see anything beyond the first page of comments on any of the podcast pages. I don't see an option to view pages 2,3,4... for any of the Respec Radio, The Game Informer Show, or Gamer Gorilla Radio posts. Is it just me or is anyone else having this problem?
This isn't the forum to post bugs, but I know it's not obvious. You should post bugs in the Site Feedback group's forum. That said, I'll get with our QA dept. (Big Mike) about it. We're a bit short staffed now so please be patient with us.
