    I have AdBlock installed on Chrome but typically let ads run on EG! Tried the good ol' "switch on, switch off" with it, nothing.

    Just thinking I'll sign into EG on my phone to see if it does the same on there.

    @FuzzyDuck That reminds me of something. I'll add someone to my ignore list if something they post comes cross as particularly pointless, then unignore them when I forget why they were on the list in the first place :D

    I no longer seem to be able to edit my GamerTag.

    Also, can't delete sent PMs and the SELECT box at the bottom of my inbox suggests I have many pages of PMs when in actual fact I don't. I suspect a manual counter needs updating.

    Um, where has the 'portable' option gone?

    ... just mobile and HD to choose from all of a sudden!

    Where's the fucking classic/portable view? The HD view is about 600 pixels wide.

    Its not because everyone was using 'portable' as adblock for dummies. No sir.

    I've actually had to turn on Adblock now. Those ads make browsing this forum too obvious in the office.

    I would be willing to bet that if you looked at the stats, people using the portable view measured barely a single digit percentage point.

    And no one is going to maintain that when there are two other, far more popular, views to neglect.. i mean 'maintain'.

    Yeah, but then the HD mode was enabled by default on the desktop and the mobile one on phones. One had to make a conscious decision to switch to portable. Sort of like Linux and its market share. ;-)

    A sensible way to do it would be to query the browser window width and select portable automatically for people who do not have their browsers maximised.

    You guys are quick(er than me)! I was just about to post about this.

    We're rebuilding various parts of the site at the moment and one of the changes to the next version will be a responsive design, i.e. scaled to fit (almost) all devices, from HD screens down to mobile. So you will have a portable view back.

    As we gear up to update the site we've dropped the middle version. It's become a pain to maintain three versions and it's slowing down our ability to implement some of the other changes we want to do.

    When we made the last version of the site there was only one tablet of note on the market (iPad) and therefore building a version for it's dimensions and the "fact" that everyone would soon be browsing websites on tablets made it seem like the right idea. However, now there's loads of screen sizes and dimensions we've painted ourselves into a bit of a corner with this version. Basically, I should have thought it through.

    If you loved the portable version, I'm very sorry about this! I hope this temporary inconvenience isn't too much a problem. We did give it a little test on a lot of tablets and it generally works well but if something's terribly broken please shout.

    @dominalien: I'm not a techie but I don't think you can query the browser width. It's done based on device... but obviously this becomes less of an issue with responsive design.

    @nickthgun: Yep, the %age using tablets to browse EG is very low.
