    Re: USCHO Upgrade - Good or Bad?

    Well, someone's reading the thread. There is now a "Switch to Mobile Style" link on the top, and my iPod has a different look to the site than before. It loads a more streamlined version rather than the bulky full site.

    For that reason, I say bad, but otherwise, on a laptop or desktop despite getting used to the look, its no different than any other change and we'll forget about it in a few weeks...hopefully
    Seems like the only mobile options out there are

    top link is a vBulletin style suited for mobile browsing. USCHO would have to add it as a viewing style option and they could even impliment a browser detector so that it would automatically switch styles.
    Second link is an iphone/android/blackberry app. Users download the app, but the forum owners still have to install the plugin on their site for the app to function.

    It's hard to understand why this wasn't done in the offseason. They both installed a new version of vBulletin and changed the site itself. It seems like they didn't beta test the site itself at all because almost nothing worked correctly at first. I can't blame them for most of the problems with vB.

    I have found that on Friday and Saturday night's, the response time for this site is extremely slow. I go here to to look for the scores of the games in progress and I end up giving up since the site has been timing out a lot. I hope it gets better.

    So far so bad. But things should get better soon.

    Bad job on the upgrade. The poor mobile message board, and a lousy scoreboard layout make me want to look elsewhere.
