    The forum experience should be very good on the iPad now. Part of the reason for this software was how the layout adapts for the different devices while still being consistent.

    Those tapatalk things are rubbish IMO and strip the site down

    I think the logic is Because one party leaving the conversation does not delete it for other particants.

    Yes, I can see the logic since this program sort of allows you to scaffold conversations.

    What I don't know is if when you invite someone mid conversation, do they see the entire thread including past msgs? Haven't experimented yet...

    I'm guessing that the width of the header image is setting the overall page width and the width of the content window is smaller.

    Chsalas I've done a quick hack to clean it up. Let me know if it doesn't work for you.. the style should be 'prototype v2' and its set as the default right now so you should migrate to it automatically - if not, select it from the chooser at the bottom of the page
