So... why the [insert colorful language here] would anyone design it that way?

Best guess?

For those that do not have computer, and only have their cellphone.

If you ever tried to go to cs on a tiny cell phone net, you'll see how slow and hard it is to get to page to page. Put it in mobile, and it's fast and easy.

CS mobile doesn't have all the options of the full site, but it still works pretty well.

I discovered, kind of by accident, that you can use the Quick Style Chooser at the bottom of the page, and it only changes it for the computer or device that you're on at the time.

I use the regular version on both my laptop and iPod touch. It works great for me.

Perhaps there's a misunderstanding here: did you intend that as a reason to design it so that, once you choose the mobile version, you cannot switch back?

I'm sure it was a rush job. I don't know, you'd have to ask Vbulletin why it's that way. It likely was just for those only have mobile, instead of having to go through the same process every time they logged on

The mobile skin was provided as a third-party app, not by VB. I'm slightly hesitant over doing more than just installing that skin right now, which I hope to do in the next hour or so, as VB has gone up a notch or two. Unfortunately, the notch it went up with added features was about as bug-ridden as a nickel-a-night hotel. It may have some sort of automatic functionality included for mobile skins and detection, but after my experiences of upgrading the DP forums I decided to wait until they get it out of the alpha testing phase.

When I had my iPhone 3G, I still used the regular version. Never had a problem with it. Now I am wanting to get a tablet, so yeah.

I have a Nokia 6350 and I've discovered I can access the web when away from home.

And yep, I've tried the mobile skin for CS on it . . .checked in on it a couple of times while at work (gotta have something to do while waiting to be picked up after work.)

seems to work pretty good . . . except when I was doing a search the other day, I got a "memory full" message and the page didn't finish loading.

Guess I need to check with my owner's manual if I feel like digging it out of the nightstand drawer later
