    I don't think anyone likes to type messages on a phone. This is not a read-only website.

    I use both. I use my phone to check in during the day, but mostly just to read and rate posts. But to post things I'll usually use my laptop in the evening.

    You are bucking the trend.

    I hardly ever use desktop as the site is responsive and works well for me on mobile.

    But good to know that desktop is alive and well.

    I'd much rather type on my laptop plus if I am making a post with lots of links, like in the music voting threads, it's much easier to organize on the laptop. I also often post pictures which sometimes need to be resized, usually with Photoshop.

    Also I'm usually on my laptop in the evening anyway and will flit between Soapchat, YouTube, Facebook and Netflix.

    I use both but probably more on my desktop.

    I often read posts on here with my phone while I'm travelling on buses and trains and sometimes post using my phone too. When I get home I often find myself using my desktop to correct typing errors introduced by my phone's autocorrect or I'm changing incorrect ratings I've made when my fat fingers have tapped the wrong one on my phone's screen/

    Anything other than a short post with no images I generally leave until I have access to a desktop computer.

    What did you expect from people who watch old crap like Dallas and Dynasty.
    Maybe there are some trendy wendys in the CWDynasty forum?

    Anyway, for me it's the difference between using 1 finger or 10 fingers.

    I only ever post when on my laptop. I occasionally look in on the forum using my phone or tablet, but have never posted using these.




    Sorry, off topic ... love the Deacon Blue video BF :D

    I check the board more often on my phone to read. But I mostly use my desktop to post since it goes a lot quicker to write when you have an actual physical keyboard.

    I don't own a tablet. I find them difficult to write on as well.

    Desktop for the most part. I do check the site for post with my phone when away from the desktop. I just find it harder to type and sharing images using the phone. [​IMG]

    Interesting. Our stats show that 58% come via a mobile device. That is well below the norm and probably indicates that we skew an older range of people.

    I hate my phone. I have it because it's a requirement of modern life it seems. In reality it's just a tracking device. I don't even use my phone to listen to music. I would much rather play a CD than use my phone for that. I will only post on here on my laptop. Like @Richard Channing I am usually on my laptop in the evenings. Usually on the same apps as he too, flitting back and forth.

    The 58% are the super-advanced robots.

    Snap, I still buy CDs and far prefer that to downloading

    I hate using phone to type, my fingers become sausages and hit every key other than the one i want! Desk top far easier and less strain on the eyes to scroll!
