    Lets be real, who actually uses a computer anymore?? Everyone uses a cellphone for the majority of their day. If you really want rhis to be successful, then youll need to make an app.

    I use a computer. I do very little surfing on any other device, despite having a modern, reasonably new, up-to-date smart phone. But ... I'm not the typical person online.

    So, to help you expand your idea:
    What features do you see existing in an app?
    If the app did 5 things, what 5 things would they be?

    An app is possible. But not on our list of priorities right now...

    I don't know that we need an app, but a more mobile friendly page would be super.

    Agreed. this site on a phone is pretty brutal... that huge header/banner definitely doesn't help. it needs to go away on phones... too bad this site isn't bootstrap, the fix would be super simple. heh.

    Well, if you want the site to grow.... Perhaps switching to a more mobile-friendly framework sooner rather than later would be a smart idea. I rarely use it, because it's a pain on mobile.

    I have no idea how easy the change would be in xenForo, I just happened to know the Bootstrap framework. I'm sure the staff have their hands full implementing all sorts of changes... I've noticed quite a few random improvements over the summer...

    I'm a bit of a nerd, and I've never even heard of xenForo, but it feels outdated as hell and in need of modernizing. Badly.

    Agreed. I'll mention this to the higher ups.
