...I won't even pretend to know what that means. I will honestly admit to being ignorant of such terminology. ^_^'

It's the database/bulletin board software B used to make this iteration of the site. Similar to myBB, vBulletin, etc

Welp, I'll check it out tomorrow. If it's better than the app, I'll go ahead and delete it. It'll free up some space on my phone. XD

I quit the legacy to use the browser version a couple of months ago. It takes some getting used to, but it was worth it in my opinion

Currently using the mobile site. Let's see how it goes.

Edit: I see I've lost access to the RP-chat function. Sad, but not crippling.

Okay, so both have their ups and downs. The mobile site runs much slower than the app and lacks the chat function, but the app screws up text and makes it impossible to make links without exiting it to retrieve them in the browser.

Since I'd rather have the speed of the app, I'll probably just keep the app for day to day use and simply use the site when needed.

last time I used the legacy app, it was literally the same exact thing as the browser, so I saw no use in using it. As for ads, I use an adblocking browser on my phone. I had to get it because I kept getting redirects that would kill posts.

The site shouldn't redirect anymore. I haven't had that issue in a while.

I was using Firefox while on the mobile site, and it generally runs pretty fast, but the forum was really slow when loading. And it was lagging like crazy while I was typing.
