    I was going to say that the trophies must be for boobs, but then you said toddler and I felt gross about it.

    Hey guys,

    The current donations goals I have are shown here on the right side:
    http://tweak3d.net

    There is also a button that links to Paypal to send a donation. Donations help with hosting costs.

    The server we use costs $90/month (this may be dropping to 75/month soon).

    I will do my best to increase the revenue and have made many changes to the ads, which only show to guests. I would downgrade to cheaper hosting, but the site wouldn't be as fast or as well supported since my IT guy is a good, local friend that can fix outages.

    I'm having issues and am looking for a solution. The forum skin appears to be attached to the account and not the device. If I change to the mobile device while on my phone, then my computer also switches to mobile. When I get back on my computer and switch it back to normal it changed my phone too.

    Any ideas?

    Hey Phantom,
    Something's wrong and that used to not be the case, at least on my phone.

    What device is it you're using? I will test this on the Android tonight too.

    Just confirmed that YES it is currently doing what you described. This is actually not an officially supported thing so I will need to make a fix for it. Let me see here..

    Edit - I won't have time to fix this right now, it involves a bigger solution.

    Mobile device detection is disabled, so you can manually set it. However you can't set it manually per device. This is the whole issue.

    I could make an easier button that appears when you have a mobile phone to switch back to mobile and make a standard icon on mobile to go back and forth. This will take some time to figure out. In the meantime I'd suggest using the standard skin for most phones.

    OR I could attempt to play with auto detect again, but there's again the issue of overriding it if you prefer the regular skin on mobile. There's also the issue of it incorrecting detecting devices and forcing your desktop to mobile skin. I will need to explore these options.

    Sorry about the outage today, it was software related and we had to copy a lot of files to fix the problem.
    Commissar Smersh says thanks for this.

    Tapatalk is giving me weird errors akin to not setup or registered or something? That said, the forums are pretty postable in the browser on the iPad!
