it's a lot when you consider some of the posters here just plop a big image search resultsphoto gallery in a row.

Is it? I would guess people refreshing their "Your posts" or "New posts" pages in total take more resources than the one-time resizing of photo posters...

google indexing a site and google personally tracking you through multiple 3rd party sites via embedding are quite different things.

Google is personally tracking everybody whether they like it or not, what's one more site if it's a benefit to the users?

Why add another tracker when you can just click on a link?

I fully agree tapatalk is awful. The vogons mobile site loads and renders perfectly on my Google pixel 3a and our tablet. I don't see what's wrong with their mobile site.

Yep. Looks and works fine to me on an iPhone and iPad, also.

Really depends if you need bigger fonts or not. Default looks good but is not really readable on my phone (S21). When increasing the font size it doesn't look so good anymore and this could be improved imo.

I use the desktop site on my phone. Just turn to landscape mode and zoom in if I need it larger.

I don't like the mobile site interface.

I miss youtube embedded video in this forum. Some things are nicer in video form, but if its just a link to the video, usually gets overlooked.

If you're not on mobile, you can install Tampermonkey and this script to bring that functionality back:

Hi there,
I have a suggestion to consider.
Is there a way to add a possibility to address a forum memnber by nickname so that he/she gets a notification? You don't always want to quote someone's post, but just to turn to someone directly so that he/she is notified about it.
I've seen this kind of functionality on some other forums.

In theory it is possible via the phpBB extension „simple mentions“.
Whether to open that particular can of worms is not my decision. A couple of times I thought that this could be useful. OTOH if a user is already in a thread they will get a message of a new reply anyway, if they aren‘t it‘s better you write a PM instrad of adding a mention in a thread.
As it’s a forum and not a chat/discord, adding mentions opens the door to potentially abusive behavior 🤷‍♂️

Thank you for the respond.
Don't really see how this kind of functionality is connected with abusive behavior. PMs are more likely to be used for that. All I suggest is just a usual public message with a notification.
And actually the message comes only if the user is signed up for the thread, not just if posts in it.
Anyways it's up to the admins to decide.
