Personally.. I like giving the ad revenue to the site actually hosting the video. Vimeo and youtube browser plugins don't load through videosift either.

It's not a big deal really, I just click through and leave all of videosift blocked. I imagine most people block Videosifts ads, defeating the purpose of linking to it in the first place.
If YouTube doesn't serve ads in embedded videos, it's YouTube's fault...not don't sites that use provided method to embed videos.
Having said that, I do get pre-roll and banner ads in youtube videos on videosift...

Battery on my device lasts 3-4 hours.
On the plus side you can go to http://rootjunkysdl.com/ to remove that "sponsored" lock screen and install google app store to use (almost) all android apps.

squareenix really fucked up with their accounts system.
I have an account for NA site, for "Secure" site, for "store" site, for "community" site...
Makes me really averse to using their site and products.

He talked about that tweet and apologized for it to that person directly and gamers at large.

Safari... I posted two links below, and here's the bottom links:

http://imgur.com/XCxB7TM

I'll give you that the "comment" links are small, but if I don't get it with the first try I can get it with the second. Or just zoom in?
I see that on your phone background is black, not blue as it should be...

This is what it looks like here https://i.imgur.com/ptX7zT9.png
Ya I could zoom in, but I think it's better for these problems to be fixed since it' better for user's experience and Google's search ranking.

This is what homepage looks like on my Note 4 https://i.imgur.com/cMEodZv.jpg On a monitor it looks ok, but on a smaller screen it's unreadable.

I don't mean to nitpick, but...on my iphone, the title for each topic is the same font size as the text underneath. Is it the stuff on the side you're worried about?

What's "unreadable"?
Are you talking about Safari or Chrome on iphone?

Primarily being able to read title of each post and being able to tap on comment links and usual picture/media/game/story of the day at the very end.

Mr.Blue, could you please update the underlying html structure of your website to work better on mobile?
I'm not asking for changing of the interface or a new theme.
Rather for the site to use proper html tags for proper page elements. Because of that, right now too many page elements on this site are impossibly tiny to read/tap on and have incorrect page-reflows.
Thank you.

You could increase the default text size on your device. That helped me somewhat.
If I do that, then the currently normal size fonts will be HUGE and it will affect other websites for which I don't want to do that.
Blue should update his CSS to work better with mobiles.

Most mobile websites are responsive, so the effect wasn't so bad. You could always try it and set it back if it screws other sites up too badly.

There might be a way to set the font size per site, but a quick google search didn't bring anything up.
I'm not even talking about a responsive design. With responsive design it'll change the site's layout based on dimensions of the screen and other capabilities. I don't care for that.

This is what homepage looks like on my Note 4 https://i.imgur.com/cMEodZv.jpg On a monitor it looks ok, but on a smaller screen it's unreadable.

Indeed. Conroy and Strong are the VAs you expect to return; they're playing their characters. I think Cutter was complaining about the silliness of hiring A-list screen actors to voice the other characters.

Twilight and cable TV shows are A-list now?
It's a typo there. He meant to say "a list".. "Hiring a list of screen actors".

Mr.Blue, yours is one of very few sites where I have banner ads enabled..and it's proving to be a very bad experience.
You some ad networks that are nonstop chewing my CPU, battery and network connectivity.
http://i.imgur.com/grGKxJE.png
Notice number of requests and data transferred...
Top banner is Quaker Oats, right banner is CarMax, then 4 amazon banners, then another CarMax.

Please do something about this, otherwise I'll have to disable ads again
(While writing and troubleshooting this, my battery dropped by 10%)

You can still browse the site and make purchases..but I doubt Amazon is that generous that they would give 2x commission.
