This forum is a nightmare.

First having to scroll down to LOAD new posts is really bad, especially on a mobile. Clicking a link then back means you must scroll load scroll load scroll load, how crap.

Then there is some sort of super heavy scripting that makes everything slow and some sort of delay typing, noticeable on the mobile version.

Overall a more traditional forum format would be much appreciated.

I always longpress a discussion link that I want to open and then select open in new tab from the pop up menu. So I do not need to go back and can avoid the scrolling, scrolling, scrolling

Yes I do that on pc but tabs on mobile is not as easy. Given the amount of scripting you would think they could recover the position though.

On pc that's mouse click right instead of left, but a similar menu is triggered with longpress on the link instead of tap on mobile. In Chrome on Android (phone) I then see a number in the browsers top bar, when I tap on it I can switch between the tabs.
It's different on the tablet where the tabs are visible as tabs due to the screen size.

Middle click opens a link in a new tab directly ;)

I personally think the forums are nice just the way they are.

You're definitely right. I feel the same way Jake.

I just found this forum because someone accidentally posted about "combo bonus" in a French forum and got yelled at to post here. But I can't browse to see the topics, I have to search??? There are so many mysterious features (like combo bonus and "vocabulary deck"?) that aren't documented in help ...
