I always access this site from desktop, so I never noticed how poorly it performed on mobile. Is there some button I'm missing? It loads on my phone in desktop mode and I have to zoom in. I couldn't copy and paste into the message box either. It's 2018 and surely there must be a better way. Over 50% of traffic online is mobile.

Yeah, the forum doesn't work well on mobiles.

Here's a work-around.

1. Install "Opera Mini - fast web browser"
2. Inside the settings part of Opera, go to "Page Layout" and turn on "Single column view".

This will make the forum much easier to read.

Hope this helps.

What are the chances that this forum's software could be updated to be mobile friendly? I'm sure even if it costs money, you could get some members to chip in to offset any pinch to your wallet.

Sorry, the chances are pretty low. Money isn't the issue. I just don't have the time or expertise to upgrade this very old forum software with a later version. It wouldn't be a straight forward process with too many things that could go wrong.
