I'm having difficulties with the site following installation of IOS 8.1. It's become extremely difficult to copy and paste into a reply box.

I've tried this on two different IPads - iPad 2 and iPad Air.

Any ideas?

I'm still using my iPad 2, and I've had problems with this site specifically when trying to copy from the post I'm replying too. The way to do it is to tap in the post entry box before copying.

Phew, that seems to work, thanks.

Its almost like you have to move an invisible cursor there before you can tap and hold to bring up the paste menu.

So you have to touch where you want it, and then touch it again and hold it.

I'm trying to look at this using an iPad 2 running 8.02. I'm finding the copy behavior to be rather balky in both Safari and Chrome. It's difficult to select precise text. I didn't find that "clicking" in the reply box first helped.

I'll be working on a more mobile-friendly version next year. If there's anything else you guys have noticed that I need to focus on please let me know, particularly features you may have observed at other sites.

At the far bottom of the page you have the "Contact Us" button right next to the "All Topics" button.

When I get to the end of a thread, I like to go back to the all topics page. But sometimes my fat finger accidentally hits that contact us button instead, and that causes my iPhone to open up the Mail program and then initiate a new message to your admin email address.

Its really fucking annoying to have a whole app open up just because my finger was off a touch.

You should move that button. Or put a bigger gap in between them.

It works fine on 8.0. It's the upgrade to 8.1 that screwed it up.

Btw - if you have an iPad2, don't upgrade, it slows everything down.

I have the same issue on my ipad Air.

But when I use the Mercury browser the issue goes away.

I'm using the Mercury browser.


The above ontological example models the zero premise to BB theory. It does so by applying the relative uniformity assumption that the alleged zero event eventually ontologically progressed from the compressed alleged sub-microscopic chaos to bloom/expand into all of the present observable order, more than it models the Biblical record evidence for the existence of Jehovah, the maximal Biblical god designer.

-Attributed to Dawn Bertot Message 286

Does a query (thats a question Stile) that uses this physical reality, to look for an answer to its existence and properties become theoretical, considering its deductive conclusions are based against objective verifiable realities.
