OK. So. Just to confirm - I enabled a setting that gives 60 seconds to edit posts after they are written. I can set it to 5 minutes, that's fine. It SEEMS like nobody sees it but me, though.

Like I said, most mobile sites suck add, especially this one. No indication of what thread was last updated. All mobile sites represent compromise unneeded since we had razr phones.
This is not my experience. I go to the site on my phone, ensure I am logged in, click the icon which is three horizontal bars and up comes a menu. "Your posts, New posts, Unread posts."

Additionally, when logged in I see the message bases in red if there's new stuff there.

They have multiple things in place to say what's been updated. Are you just not logged in? They can't say what has been updated from your last visit if you are not logged in, sir.

No, I am genuinely trying to understand. It seems that some things are missing from what you are seeing, compared to what I am seeing. This is not me doing a bit or attempting to mock you or silence you. I despise the great, great majority of "mobile experiences" as you do. I just wanted something better for our time together here, that is all. Let us shape. Let us shape young mobile minds together.

Why are you so worried about the experience of a guy who doesn't even care enough to select an avatar?

nah, it's good man. I just will keep looking at the regular desktop website whenever possible which is anytime I have at least a smartphone in my possession which I always do.

This posting will be saved with two lines following the above message. The next line will be deleted if editing is possible. If this is the last line, editing is possible.

This line indicates editing is not possible.

This line indicates pickle-flavored Utz potato chips.

Oh and I can't edit immediately after either.

One of UTZ advertising campaigns pointed out that they are a regional supplier and "You can't buy UTZ in Dallas. Too bad for them." Their website confirms they operate east coast and southeast, going no further west than Louisiana.

No, they don't. They don't offer any size lard-cooked anything.

You fucking one-eyed obese retard.

For everyone else, this will ruin any hopes you had of losing weight but you will NOT care.

THINGS WHAT I DON'T LIKE ABOUT THE NEW BBS

I am not including "youtube and image links don't work", because I haven't checked it lately and am not sure if that's still true.
Actually, YouTube links now inline automatically. If you paste a YouTube https: link on a line it converts it to the actual video without tagging.

This was nasty, cruel and absolutely unnecessary. You could have simply said I was wrong. The fact was, I searched for it and didn't find it.

You know, for all the complaints about my previous allegedly nasty behavior, you might want to learn that acting like a bastard is not going to win you many friends and makes you look small and petty.
