I agree I come on less because I use my phone. At the moment I'm even posting from my phone! While its possible to do, it doesn't display properly on mobile devices. That being said, we must remember that the mods do not get any payment for running this forum, and to create an app would cost money! They more than likely  will either need a large amount of donations, or someone that can create an app! :)
Good point...I didn't stop to think about that. I was just throwing out ideas...but hey, if you start small (just make a mobile site and re-structure the desktop version), then that could open up the chances of an app one day.

From what it sounds like we're not getting updated because they want a full site rebuild. Who knows if we're even going to stay at this domain but from what I understand at this point none of the mods care about this site because they're waiting for a rebuild.

If they truly are rebuilding they'll probably move to IPBoards because it's truly the most innovative and modern forum host currently. If they do rebuild to IPBoards all of their forums typically have a mobile version of the website that functions like an app without having to download it.

I would suggest switching to Invision Power for a new KPF. I'm in two other forums, one of which used to have Simple Machines like we have right now. Both of them are now running through Invision and it's everything you could ask for at this point and more. New and clean look, mobile web pages...not to mention, there's also a "reputation" counter, user status updates, custom profile pages (similar to the style of Facebook or Twitter), and some nice additions worth bringing to this forum. Only major setback at this point is that we'd lose a lot of the unique smileys...all in all, I think they are worth taking a look at.

Inivision Power is IPboards actually! It's definitely really nice and functionable. You can actually use unique smileys though don't worry about that. I've actually been a moderator and an admin for two different sites that run on IPboards and I can confirm that you can actually customize the smileys to whatever you want.

We are going to change KPF the moment Katy has a new album coming out. So if you have suggestions for what you would like to see then, let us know!

This is probably just my nostalgia speaking but having a theme similar to the one we had during the Teenage Dream era (or even the OOTB theme, which I've heard good things about) would be amazing!! Like, having rotating headers was awesome (unless I'm just imagining it now, LOL) For some reason I just found it easier to use, or maybe just having everything white throws me off, not really sure. And I agree with having updated emojis (or whatever we used to call them  :hehe: )

Anyway, thanks to Akateisakate and all of the mods for their hard work!!
