Don't  even know what that is ... thus, probably not.

We intend, by design, to stay away from 'social media'.

Not social media. An app which lets you scheme through fora that you are members of on your mobile phones/ tabs etc  , speedy and not resource hungry.

Please have a looksy

It is difficult for a *photo* forum to display well on mobile devices regardless of Theme being used.

The forum is all right on mobile (I use it roughly 75% mobile), only these little things that disturb:

1) the text input box does not adapt to resolution so I have to scroll sideways writing / editing or insert hard line breaks all the time

2) The "compose message" and "open thread" windows are so cluttered that I have one line as input and this line is scrollable left-right

3) Some linked images do not resize properly and need sideways scrolling too, but this is minor.

Conclusion: To make the forum very nicely accessible on mobile devices also those with "only 1200x800 qpix" resolution the only thing that has to be done is:

-- Possibility to get rid of three lines of clutter (B) (Mona Lisa) (Smileys) in my settings
-- Textbox adapts to screen resolution, so no sideways scrolling necessary.

This answer comes via quick reply. Uncluttered view. I have 5 or
6 lines to write and can see them all.

When I hit Reply I get all options but only one line to type.

When I open a thread or write a message it is the same.

I would appreciate this very much, too!
advantages:
+ tapatalk takes care of reformating contents on mobile devices, so no workarounds for various devices necessary
+ afaik supporting tapatalk just takes inclusion of a few code lines in the forum code
+ NG-R would be listed in tapatalk fora search.
- it's free for both users and site owners, the "price" being ad-injections in tapatalk. But whether this is an annoyance or acceptable is up to everyone's individual opinion.

I am adding Tapatalk to the list of things to look into.

There is also a more mobile responsive version of the forum software which is on the horizon.
Hopefully that upgrade will be available soon.

((I must admit that I am slightly mystified about why anyone wants to look at a photography website on their cell phone?? The fotos are so tiny on a cell phone!!!))

I just noticed that the NikonGear logo is displayed, albeit slightly soft, properly in "Curve" theme in IE11 on my Win7 now.

Thanks, Andrea, for the further improvement!

Now that I finally figured out how to display it, I can clean up the details!

There is an unrelated motor vehicle forum that I frequent on which several members apparently use Tapatalk to post their forum replies.
At the bottom of every single message they post, the last line is "Sent via Tapatalk"
It is extremely annoying to me...it is useless visual clutter and, worse than that, it is advertising.
I'm sure that Tapatalk is the greatest miracle of the computer age, but please don't allow Tapatalk, unless the Tapatalk advert at the bottom of every post can be turned off.

As Tapatalk apparently is financed by those ads, they might be impossible to filter out? Have you tried if Adblock or similar browser plugins can keep such annoyances away?

The NG Team is firmly opposed to allow advertising directly or indirectly on this site. It will not happen. Same as buttons for [a]social media. Or recurring pleas for donations. We are not into NG for the money.
