I don't consider NG to be fine on mobile, there's a lot we need to do to provide a better mobile experience.

Also, I am posting off of a phone.

Thoughts?

It's not "headed towards" becoming one, it is one.

Think about it. Think about your favorite flash games. Now tell me how well they'll run in an iPhone. Or a tablet.
There's a reason NG isn't supporting smaller platforms. It's because there's just no point to do so. The main purpose of the site would be completely lost on handheld devices.


Programming stuffs (tutorials and extras)
PM me (instead of MintPaw) if you're confuzzled.

Well newgrounds is and has always been a laptop/desktop site really. It's never been well optimized for anything smaller than 13".

I would prefer it actually. I never browse the web from my phone anyways. Too tedious imo.
