    If I think a long time ago, I turned up needing some help with my phone. I stuck around for two reasons. I wasn't called a noob like they'd do on xda and I loved the atmosphere of all the games in the lounge and whatnot. I know I've not been a regular so much but every time I'm here it seems harder to find the things which defined you from the rest. Now I have to search so hard to find anything which isn't about a phone. Honestly if you asked me, I couldn't say how I found this sub forum. Only found it because I knew it used to be there. Opening page is just recent posts. Fair enough you can favourite something but it's hard to favourite something if you don't know it's there. Fyi, didn't think you could say "let me google that for you" pretty sure that's what the tip means when suggesting the title.

    I miss "The Lounge". I think it's "Off Topic" now.

    Yeah, well ... um ... get in line? ;)

    Rob's pushing the app, which is ... to put it as nicely as possible ... a work in progress. The forums were reorganized to accommodate the channel approach, which may have promise, but at the moment is a bit disheveled. :rolleyes: It's not the better mouse trap and sliced bread all rolled into one as i think he hoped.

    Now let's explain how we get to "Off topic" (no laughing face anymore so lol) Exactly my point. If you've just turned up with a new phone how can you find anything? I've only been looking because I knew it always used to be there o_O

    That game mouse trap never worked. All the time to set up and it was always disappointing :D

    The truth is, they're not finding it. Just check out some of the channels.

    Yeah, this forum isn't as active as it used to be, maybe because it became more difficult to navigate IMO.

    In theory there's an easy fix. Search Android forums and press the link you get last posted. All the url is actually missing though is /forums. If you can get that to show up in a google search then you're sorted ;)
