You have indeed been busy!

I just want to give my feedback about the way the forums break down for the manufacturers. I really like the current discussions feature. It's slick!

+1 for Rich.

...and we're back

We had an outage in various stages last night and this morning. The site was never fully offline, but it was near-unusable for much of the night, and the forums had to stay offline for much of the morning. Everything seems to be back up now; I hope for good.

I apologize. I was doing some site upgrades over the weekend that didn't go as planned. The database got mangled a bit and the forums had to be restored from Saturday night's backup. Unfortunately that means a day's worth of forum messages were lost, and the restore process took parts of the site offline for hours at a time. We are deeply sorry for both of those inconveniences.

Site update

This weekend, we launched an update to the site.

The big change is promoting "OSes" from just a few small forums to more prominent pages on the site, which - in addition to forums - include pages for related news.

As part of this change, we also changed how we list single-vendor OSes like iOS and BlackBerry. We're now treating them the same as multi-vendor OSes, instead of considering them "proprietary". (The way the smartphone market has evolved in the past few years, I think this makes the most sense going forward.)

A slew of other changes have been rolled out in this update (and in smaller updates earlier this month.) The highlights are:
  1. The main Forums page has a new look, making it easier and faster to get to the most

This site loads slow as molasses now...

Noticeable lag... cannot scroll the site for 10 seconds or so when loading the homepage. No problems loading any other sites.

Same thing using Safari, Firefox or Chrome.

Looks odd on the page. The contrast is not that great.

Y U NO Review Rezound?

I understand that this phone had a silent release, but i would've figured that you guys would've had a time to work up a review on it.

I love the thing, honestly, and IMO is a better phone than the Razr.

Dear Sir's RE: Forums Question

A) that's what a proper subject line looks like Users of Phonescoop Razz

B) any plans to condense the forums ? Ya know to pretty up the place Cool

What?of course I have suggestions Razz

you could pretty much condense the main forums page into Tabs Like PhoneTalk (with all the phone stuff), ShopTalk,CrazyTalk(the lounge), Phonescoop, and Canada....well..because. Laughing

maybe have a news ticker with the headlines from the frontpage

change the log in to email and people would stop cluttering up this forum with " I didn't get an email...oh...THAT email..."

and show us all usernames under that we can switch id's easier and can troll faster Twisted Evil

this site would be better if rendered entirely i...
