Poll - how do you visit The Dinosaur Toy Forum?
« on: February 09, 2013, 11:04:50 AM »
This recent thread (http://www.dinotoyblog.com/forum/index.php/topic,1216.0.html) has prompted me to investigate how most visitors view the DTF. I'll also check google analytics but I thought a poll might also prompt some discussion.

As for me, I always use a laptop. Hence, the issue of mobile access hasn't really been on my radar.

I have a desktop at my store, a netbook hooked up to a 17in monitor at home, and a Asus Transformer tablet when I'm out and about. Although right now I'm on the tablet since I have browser issues and can't use the computer.

About 35% of visitors sometimes or mostly access the forum using a mobile device. That's quite high, and I bet the figure will grow with time...I suppose it's time to make the forum more friendly to such devices...

I could not agree more! I do find them efficient for mobile devices since they save a lot of space, but it bothers me when I see touchscreens for laptops or desktops. Like, why would you ever want that? >:D

My problem is I am like Dr. Alan Grant every time I touch a Touchscreen it goes black on me. Plus when I had to get a new camcorder, no more view finder it has a bloody touchscreen. We went to the Grand Canyon and with the glare from the sun I couldn't see what I was filming! They are just plain evil!

I have a laptop with a touch screen that can fold into a tablet. So best of all worlds depending on what I need!

I use my iPhone 5s almost 100% time. I find myself very often trying to switch to the desktop version of sites because the mobile ones can be a little tricker to access content, and I like to see everything at once. If there was an app to download I probably wouldn't get it, just because it takes up space on my drive as well as my screen and its easier to just go to my browser, and that way you don't have to exit the app to view links to other sites. But I'm open to what's next

As a busy mom of two (soon to be 3) little ones, I rarely go on a desktop computer.  I always have my iphone with me in case of cute photo ops with the kids though, so I often end up checking the forum through my phone.  If I come across a thread I want to reply to, or want a better look at the great art or photos on here, I will then go to my desktop to type or see the pictures.


My chickens as the raptors they seem to think they are.  :P

On my laptop...usually, although I do like the bubbling cauldron idea. However, why no selection for palantiri?
