You have a point, no doubt I'll do it! But top priority now is a very good "normal" version with as much as possible old messages available again.

Having said that, I'm suprised to see that the forum / website is looking fine on my CRAP Blackberry Curve 9300! Unpractical but looking nice :lol:

How about a millage and expenses type section? Here is a thread on vpcuk that does that http://www.vpcuk.org/forums/showthread. ... -2013-2014

it might be better as a sub forum so that everyone's posts do not get mixed up etc.

Given the phone I'm running, even if it looks fine on your blackberry I'm sure it's a pain to fly it! My laptop died at the weekend and I'm starting to understand why I don't use my phones internet much, even though it has a full HD screen!

My fav tool is a 7" tablet, super screen and no Microsoft yey! A few pointers would make it more usable.
Avoid small click targets, like page counts
Avoid high res displays that are hard to read and touch.

I'm not registered on that board, I can't see it. Do you have a printscreen?

Subforums will definitely be used for this "general V3M/Volvo" section, don't want a huge chaotic general section as before, important topics have to be separated.

Of course, zoom in / out / scroll continously, just afwul on the Blackberry, such phone isn't made for reading websites :D

FYI, just made an upgrade of the upload files parameters in messages. 35 files allowed instead of 15, 1Mb/file.
