    Howdy, just wondered if it had ever been suggested or contemplated to make the site available as a mobile version?
    I use the site 99% of the time from my iPhone and to be honest do find it a bit of pain in the rear to use. However then pluses far out weigh the minuses so I put up and usually shut up.

    Cheers Chris

    Unfortunately the version of the forum script doesn't support the mobile variant. So it would have to be upgraded to the ver.5 or 4.8 at least. But Mods can't do that themself. All it depends on our main Admin Horse.

    It has been mentioned in the past. The issues though have been covered by Wurger, so it is something we will look at doing in the future.

    We can't get the banner changed, let alone get the owner/main admin involved. Why worry about a mobile friendly version? :)

    Cheers Chris

    Strange, but explains the banner!
    Is the site in any danger of going offline if he/she does not reappear?

    I have just requested to join the fb group as a contingency.

    We recently had a server problem that put us offline for a few days. But through the efforts of the Mods, we were back online again.

    If this happens in the future (it can happen, the internet is what it is) then go over to Facebook and stay in touch with the gang by way of the ww2aircraft.net group.
