I'm aware of that, actually. I'm using it to point out that I'm -really- annoyed about the now broken mobile skin.

I'll happily leave ads on on my desktop, where 85% of my Neowin access happens; but I'm only putting up with ONE annoyance on my phone, especially as it costs me part of my allowance for them. I used to use the front news page a lot, now it's useless to me.

What platform are you using, if this is windows phone 8 we're in the hands of microsoft to remove us from the compatibility list :(



And we appreciate the feedback, maybe the next update to the mobile skin will not have scrolling headlines. But for now, we just need to pretend its metro where everything is cu...


WP7.5 but it had reverted back to scrolling headlines this morning. :iiam:

That was actually a bug with how it rendered in IE9 Mobile...they fixed that. It's mentioned in another thread here in this section of the forums. :)

Ok. Here it is how it's looking on my Opera Mobile for Symbian for the last three days or so! :/

Hope the admins could empathize with my situation....it is really irritating ....I can still see the whole headline in landscape mode but then I don't use my mobile in landscape much and it's an irritating hassle particularly in situations where you don't have both hands available! :/

why link a thread about it that's almost 3 years old? there are plenty of more recent threads
and it has been said a few times that they can't due to certain incompatibilities or something like that

EEEK, we don't really support symbian anymore, let alone opera :p. Will look into it, hopefully the iOS version is the same.

Edit; Should now be fixed.

You are kidding, right? Symbian still has a vast user base and it is Neowin which is losing if you are igoring it!! (Not that I don't know it is dying but will hang on for some years to come)

And about Opera. Opera Mobile is pretty much in development for Symbian^3 along the same cycle as for other major platforms. So it should not be the issue of unsupported features by a browser as far as I can see it, particularly when I extensively use it and it works like a charm like it does on my iPod Touch and Android tablet.

And finally, you did fix the issue. :p Thanks a ton!! :woot: (Y)

Some interesting mobile stats for Neowin.net, 52% iOS, 26% Android, 19% Windows Phone, 1% Blackberry, 1% Symbian, 1% Other

Its actually less than 1%, I rounded these figures.

I think I noticed this last night. I thought there was a problem with my phone until I saw this thread.

I'm glad that the "mistake" has been corrected. :p ;)
