  • Wiforums..

    Would anyone actually use this? The idea of wiforums is to allow mobile phone users to interact with the site while on the go. I know I have spent many an hour in class posting on sites that have wiforums, but it's something I figure I would put out there before making another $160 decision on.

    I think it would be neat, but id definatly wait for a serious demand before dropping $160. Just my $0.02.

      That would be neat, but not something I personally would use. I already spend WAY TOO MUCH TIME on this forum as it is

        yeah, it would be neat, but I doubt I would ever use it. My day's pretty busy as it is and I keep my browsing to when I'm at my desk. But it would be cool for those who are into that.

            I surf from my treo600 all the time.
            I watched the old BB.com fall apart on my phone.
            Truly, a less than desirable way to surf most forums.
            The graphic elements throw things off even when you don't download them.
            I would use the wiforum on occasion, or an RSS feed more often..
            I would think that you should see a strong demand for the service before spending the money.

              Although what might be cool is a feature where we can submit photos from our camera phones while on a ride. (not on the bike obvisouly.)

                can you give a link of a forum that has it up and running. id like to try it out. but if its decent and donations allow it, id be all for it. tbh, i have never heard of this, maybe time to bug some other admins to get this installed.

                hm, i tried out some of the forums mentioned on their site... doesnt seem to do anything... looks the same as forums that dont have it installed.... this something special i need to do?

                  wiforums is for your cell phone. One of my regular forums is sprintusers.com

                  if you goto wap.sprintusers.com on your cell phone, and then goto the Message forum link, you can see how wiforums works.

                          I consider myself a geek. I always seem to have computers around me wether at home, work, friends house. For that reason I don't carry a pocketPC or need Wiforums. I feel you loose a lot of the experience with the web, excel, whatever when on these platforms.

                          Maybe you could solicit a subscription for the service. Short of that, buy a $160 accessory and write a review.

                            Honestly im not that hard up to check any forum on my phone that id pay for it, above my usual donation. (That will come next month, im pretty damed strapped still from christmass.)

                            But is there a trial version you can implement?

                              Well the donations gathered recently bought VB...anything collected from here until early spring will be put towards an advertising campaign. Business cards are being designed and I am dealing with ABATE and MSF to get into some classes and hand out cards for newbies...but we'll see.
