    Only one question: will we still be able to create polls?

    Yes. At least I assume they'll leave it turned on. I was messing around with the demo and it was built right into the thread creation functionallity. I'd post a screen shot but I'm not sure how...HA!

    Better mobile access will be worth the pain.

    Yeah we will have a brand new app too. Eventually...Gotta walk before we can run. Hoping the mobile site will be so good you won't even need an app.

    I wouldn't waste time/money on a mobile app if the mobile web site does everything the main web site does.

    What's being added? Other than not being able to "like" posts the mobile site is already very functional.

    Will the website be able to handle the inevitable mega thread during the next round of conference realignment?

    probably ads, they arent making any money on the mobile site right now if you havent noticed.

    Ill be glad to see a new mobile site that has a few more features even if it has ads, hopefully no video ads though.

    Not sure what all is involved here, but saying that Hawkeye Nation is already using the other platform is not encouraging . . . and not just because they are Hoks. I find their site cumbersome. For instance, it is awkward to enter discussions to read new posts. The ease for doing this on the current CF site is a big part of what makes it so addicting.

    Can I use the Tapatalk app to access the CF forums? That app is the best way to navigate forums on mobile. Would love to see that!

    If the new software/version of CF doesn't have the same lagging/freezing/Shockwave crashing issues that this current site has, not only is the change necessary, it's 100% welcome.
