Hi
Any chance to get a better experience on mobile for this forum?
On the iPhone it looks super small and on iPad super large, and it doesn’t even let me change font size from the browser

I have the same problem, but anyway you can just pinch to zoom in on the iPhone.  I suspect this is related to Retina display stuff various iOS zoom settings...  Whatever forum package that VSL is using is not that up to date.  It is what it is.

Yea. The general experience of the entire vsl website on mobile is really bad. I wonder if the VSL team would be open to migrating the forum to discourse. Discourse is a really popular forum application that has taken off in the software engineering world. It has a great user experience on both mobile and desktop, and it takes care of all of the common features you'd expect from a forum. Its Open source so it's free to use. An example: discourse.haskell.org. It'd be nice to get an upgrade like that going

Discourse looks like the same Steinberg uses for their forums, which are working great

Ah yes you're right! I just checked their forums and they are indeed using discourse. I know a lot of orgs that have started using it; hopefully VSL will as well
