    Question Forums iPhone (Mobile Web) Friendly?

    Ok. So sometimes while visiting the forums on my 3G network, all the graphics make it very slow to load and all the stuff loading just freezes my Safari and it just shuts down. Is there a way in which the forums could be accessed through mobile web in a way in which signatures are not visible and all big image files and stuff are gone? I know there is a "Safe for Work" option, but when you use this it is hard to follow up on posts and threads and stuff as it doesn't look anything like the desktop format of the forums.

    At the bottom, change the theme to "Mobile" it's like two themes over SFW. Through User CP, on the left there's Edit Options, click on it, look for "Thread Display Options" and there you can uncheck "Show Signatures/Avatars/Images". Once you get back on your computer, the options will still be the same so you won't be able to see sigs, avatars, or images, so make sure you change them back.

    In the mobile you can't see sub-forums like Britney and all that jazz. I'll try the other format.

    Use Opera mini browser, it reduces the page sizes dramatically because it compresse the pictures differently. a website which normally consumes about 3 mb are compressed to ~100 kb, insane!

    edit: I just realized that Opera Mini doesn't support the iPhone, sorry =/
