Thumbs up Simon is doing a great job!

OK, so I made a thread to just to praise Simon, but he actually deserves it. There are so many more Fooboard options since he was brought on the team . . . new smilies, new codes, new themes . . . hiring him was a GREAT decision.

Just wanted to say Kudos to Simon (kudos my hero?) on a job well done!!!

Oh, and getting rid of the spambots was a GREAT idea.

You really have done a great job, Simon, though do you think you'll be able to fix the "Visit Full Version" button when accessing the site from a mobile device anytime in the near future?

Yes that is still on my mind. I had a long list of fixes and updates to the mobile them and i'm about 75% of the way through them. The problem is the board is running on a very old version, I had a perfect solution for that issue, tested it fine on my test forum running 3.8 then realised it just flat out didn't work in 3.6 that this board is still running because the feature didn't exist until 3.7. So it was back to the drawing board, then I've been busy with other things.

If I can't find a solution the only option will be to disable the auto detection of mobile devices so people will have to activate the mobile theme manually, but they will be able to use that link to go back to the full one.

Ok. Sorry, I didn't mean to pry or rush you. I was just curious. Seems you've been working hard. Keep it up, Studly.

Haha yeah!

As a teenager one of my basic needs is obviously emoticons (haha), and we have plenty now! Also I'm mostly on my phone or ipod so the mobile site is awesome!!

Thanks Simon

Ah Pablo - I beg to differ. Jill's an undisputed superhero in the brains and wit categories and I'm quite sure she's very lovely as well (having not seen her, I'll take it on faith) but dear Simon's keen command of techie shit, unfathomable amounts of foo facts stored behind an adorable facade of boyish charm (and appealing countenance I'd bet) make him a certain bet for a second look...by me any way.

ok - enough of me sucking up to the mods (however sincerely) - thank you both for doing a rocking great job at keeping chaos at bay amongst the foo fighter people. It is appreciated.

Pablo Honey is my favorite poster, ever.

I have never been a tech person. They keep me around because of my sparkling personality and sweet nature. Fuckers.
