\Posted from...\" - Bring it back"""

By: oldyorkie | 22-02-2014 03:27

Hi
The observant among us will have noticed that the "Posted from..." that appeared at the bottom of a post made from a mobile device has now disappeared.
The not-so-observant will have missed it :smileytongue:
This is actually quite annoying - and restrictive to the helper - when people had problems before and you could see if the message was posted from an iPhone or an Android etc it was much easier to suggest the solution in some cases. Now we have no idea what device unless they mention in the OP (which they rarely do!)- a real pain :mansad:
And the dreaded multiple c&p settings for every phone under the sun have reappeared as a result :manfrustrated:

As an additional observation, I've also noticed that against my username and avatar on the full site, I had enabled my mobile phone info to be displayed on the forums by going to preferences>personal information >mobile phone and typing in LG Nexus 5 32gb -...

That's also disappeared - despite still being current in my preferences??

My suggestion is simply this :

Bring both back.... Please :smileytongue:

This subject is about something that is long before I was using giffgaff, so really is a lot of considering going on with it as it is the best part of five years since it was suggested so unfortunately I don't think it will get implemented soon.

That said in the help and support section an option to allow the type of phone and its browser platform to be included in posts asking for assistance could be used by people who are going help with the queries.

It's useful to know if  a Help query is from an iPhone or Android user
