    Default Mobile Site Limitations

    On the mobile site, which I predominantly use, some critical functions are missing:

    1. Formatting options. Some I know how to input manually. Others I have no clue.

    2. Non-OOTS avatars. These are important/relevant in some threads.

    3. Private Messaging. At least, I haven't been able to figure out how to do it.


    Is there any chance these functions will get added to the mobile site so people who can't always get on via a desktop won't get a gimped experience?

    I realize I can view the desktop site through my phone, but the format is obviously not optimized for a phone and there's no clear method for getting back to the mobile site - I'm still not sure how I managed it last time.

    There is a theme dropd down box in the lower left corner where you can select "Playground Sand Mobile". That is imo clear enough.

    The lack of avatars is the reason I'm using the standard site on my android. They are just so very useful to keep track of who is who.

    Ah, thank you! That's helpful, though it would still be nice to have the mobile site itself be a bit more fully featured.
    78% of DM's started their first campaign in a tavern. If you're one of the 22% that didn't, copy and paste this into your signature.

    Where did you start yours?
    I started with a false start on a planet seconds before it collided with another planet. When it started for real, it was on a prison transport ship that got shipwrecked.

    This is unfortunately a necessary limitation as our avatar system doesn't host and resize your avatars.

    Press the grid menu button ().

    Then, once there, click on Messages ().
