Watch your groaning whilst scrolling on your iPhone!

I now know of at least 2 posts that I have accidentally groaned at whilst scrolling on my iPhone. I tend to scroll along the right side of the screen and clearly my clumsy finger activates the groan button from time to time.

If I have also groaned you and you didn't deserve it, I am sorry! (I guess I may have thanked by mistake also but no-one has complained about them yet )

You can remove groans, too.

Watch this...

EDIT: just did it but you had gone off line.

Re: Watch your groaning whilst scrolling on your iPhone!

I've tried using my iPhone in here a couple of times but there's way too much I need to open to do any Mod work correctly so I just do as I'm doing now on the train, use the MB Air

By the way you do know you can remove those groans don't you..?

Yes, I have removed 2 groans that were brought to my attention by baffled EFer's. Hope I haven't made too many enemies with the clumsy finger, maybe I can blame cheesy crumbs on the end of my finger for the groaning.

By the way go to your profile page: http://www.englishforum.ch/members/2...rapefruit.html

There you can check just who you groaned.

There's no way to check who you groaned at though, is there?

And there's no way to remove a groan from a thread that was moved Off-Topic, is there?

Just the number..? Been so long since I've looked at the forum without Mod privileges that I forget just what one can and can not see..

Re: Watch your groaning whilst scrolling on your iPhone!

If you're just browsing the forum then turn off java script in the safari preferences. That way if you accidently groan somebody then the whole page has to reload, and will then go to the post that you groaned at. Because it takes time to reload the page you'll know that you clicked on something that you didn't mean to and will be able to correct it.

With java script on the groan is instantly added to the post without reloading, so you may not notice if you clicked the groan button.

Another benefit with turning java script of is that pages will render quicker. Of course that's only an advantage on sites that are not reliant on java script.

HTH

Re: Watch your groaning whilst scrolling on your iPhone!

I have also slipped while on the iPhone and groaned at somebody unintentionally. I would suggest dropping them a quick PM to tell them that it was an accident. In my case the other person already saw it and instead of thinking I was a jerk for groaning without reason, realized that I was just stupid and didn't know how to keep my thumb off the groan button

Just wondering... has anybody actually un-thanked somebody?

Please excuse my ignorance, as I haven't been in CH in some years... Are you saying there's wireless on SBB trains, or are you using your own? (I assume it's the latter, but I'm asking to be sure.)

The 3G network is pretty good here, and very usable in most trains - which is exactly where I'm typing this post.

Some trains have hotspots onboard, when they don't I use my Swisscom Mobile Unlimited usb modem.
