We have installed a new feature on the site which enables you to drill down onto the post you want to see. When you are making a new post you can select the following prefixes
  • Match Thread -
  • Player -
  • Tournament -
  • Announcement -
This will enable threads to stand out more on the forum and enables easier searching of the desired topic.

Hi Alex.

I don't know whether this is just me, (or just my phone)  but when a new page has just started (specifically the Word Association Game) I am unable to get to see the previous page.

Eg. The first item was just posted to Page 12 by someone else.
I could get to look at Page 10, but if I asked to go to page 11 I was taken to Page 12.

Is this just specifically on mobile rather than on your computer?

I rarely if ever look at the site on a computer so have had to wait until this morning.

Seems to work fine on a computer.  No problem at all.

But going back to the phone, page 12 is now half full and I still can't access p.11, or even p.10. Not sure how far back it goes. I can though access p.4 (chosen at random).

That seems to imply then that's it's a problem with our mobile theme, I will have a word with the author of the theme to see if it's a common problem.
