    I'm sorry if this has been posted already, I did search.

    I see your forum is powered by vBulletin.

    A simple Google Search for 'vbulletin iphone' brings up tonnes of results about vBulletin iPhone compatible skins. I'm sure you could find a way to modifiy one of these themes to match your current design, then make it appear when the Safari iPhone/iPod browser is viewing the site.

    I love to visit this forum but viewing it from my iPod Touch can be really tricky to use and navigate!

    Just a little suggestion, hope you find it useful.

    This has been suggested before I'm sure, but I'd also love to have this too

    Actually I believe bgizzle only gets money when ads are clicked. (and I'm guessing about no one clicks them a lot)

    We're working to improve the current layout for usage on Mobile Safari. We do not have any plans to make a "mobile"-only site.

    Also, if you haven't noticed, most ads are disabled for members. We care about consistent user experience more than advertising, so this decision has nothing to do with that.

    What donate buttons?

    iPod touch Fans has never asked for or accepted donations. If anyone claims otherwise, they are probably trying to rip you off.

    This site works fine in Mobile Safari. There's no need for a mobile version.
