I do occasionally from an android device. A discussion app would make life much easier tho

I am using the full desktop site, not the mobile version and most everything works fine.
With a full 1280x720 super amoled screen, I have a higher resolution than some netbooks, so using the mobile site seems silly. I am used to the full site and it is much easier if I have a consistent UI when switching from PC to phone and vice versa. The mobile site is also too limiting and I can never find my way around.
The mobile site would make some sense on very simple, low resolution (notso)smartphones or with very limited data plans, but these things are getting rare.

Nope. Occasionally look through here on my DX2, all the links/bookmarks I have to the forums are appended with device-view=desktop.
In general, i'm not a fan of "mobile" skins, and even less of sites that don't give you an option to switch to desktop view. Very few sites do a mobile skin well. That and I usually know where everything is on the full site, some things get buried in a minimalistic mobile skin.
Protip: Rather than using "bookmarks" (with all the associated provider-installed crap you can't remove), put together an HTML page and stick it on the phone's drive somewhere. Browse to it with file:///mnt/sdcard/webpages/index.html (or wherever you put it) and make that your start page. You can plop down images, dropdowns, tables, local and remote content...
And since I like pictures...
One tap on the "labview forums" in the lower left gets me here:

I Do use my Andriod to view the forums. I prefer to view the forums in the "Full" version for the consistant views I am familliar with and because the Mobile version does not show embedded images. The Mobile version is fairly useless for responding to posts with code snippets and, of course, I can't open an attached VI (Hmmmmm... VI VIewer for mobile app!)
I do however, switch to the Mobile version to respond to posts on my android. It is necessary since I have only a vitrual keypad and the dratted keypad does not show when I "Reply" from the Full version.

My phone is smart enough to make phone calls and to display the time.
Somehow I do not feel any overwhelming urge to stay connected to the Forums at all times and places. Sorry.

I do use the mobile version occasionally.
If you're viewing the mobile version, and you switch to the full version, how do you get back to the mobile version? I did this once and the only solution I could find was to delete all my cookies (the mobile device I used doesn't let you select for which sites), which was not ideal.

Home page, down at the very bottom, "Version: Mobile | Full"...
