There still needs to be an app for mafiascum for OS and IOS

This forum is for ideas for the layout of the site and forums, both appearance and content.

Okay

I think I have complained about this before, but I'm sick of going to Google, and needed to search up mafiascum to get to the site. Then find that even with mafia scum mobile layout, it still isn't the most user-friendly. The admins and mods need to make a userfreidnly app that is designed to be easy to use from a mobile device and we can have the app on our home screen.

I mean, a lot of the time I spend on site is either with my phone or checkbook at lunch. It is sometimes hard to try to play mafia when you have to scroll 5 billion lines then zoom in super far just to change format. And click into a thread.

Thank you for reading.I hope you consider.

Maybe something like the tapatalk plugin. Not sure if it is compatible with this forum software.

If you use mafiascum enough it shows up on your home page when you open a new tab

Yep, it's the tone in these posts that makes the people who could do these jobs want to do them. This isn't a full time or even a paying job, folks. Maybe ask nicely?

the only feature that isn't really usable on mobile is site chat. in theory I guess a dedicated site chat mobile app could be neat but the primary forum functionality works just fine from a phone. I guess you could argue that it would somewhat be easier to format posts with a WYSIWYG posting interface but 1)that's gonna be a mess to implement in a usable way unless it only supports a small fraction of the formatting tags that exist and 2)for simple things like vote tags it's minimal effort to just type "[v]" manually and I'm not convinced the amount of work that would go into developing such a thing is worth the tiny, tiny amount of time end users would save

I mean, I'm happy to code whatever people want if they want to pay me.

OP is basically saying "work for me for free!" to the people who already put in tons of free hours to make sure this site works.

It's really ungrateful.

probably just hasn't considered the work involved
maybe we really should consider raising money to fund site improvements
idk if some phone app is where said money should be going but i know there are a lot of more well-thought-out projects going on that might be sped up with more incentive

Several people have pitched the site chat app idea to me but I don't see a huge benefit. The main motive I had in building it was that you had to be on the site to use it.

Mobile friendliness will be improved when we upgrade to phpBB 3.2. It is the main project being worked on right now. Other nice things will follow that project's completion.

Still a work in progress but to give you an idea, here's where I left off on porting mafBlack over tonight:

Do what I do and always keep mafiascum open in a tab on your phone.

In fact with my phone's web browser it saves a tab of basically every page I go on and you have to actually go out of your way to erase them.
