Also, are you in desktop mode on your phone?

I assume it has something to with the page still loading but it seems to have gotten worse over time. I'm wondering if the problem is on my end or happens to everyone. I may try using a different mobile browser if it's just me. I'm tired of ending up on the food board.




I use Chrome on Mobile and I've noticed it too. What's happening is your actual finger/key press is taking place below your intended finger/key press. It usually 'clicks' the next link below whether it's a thread or board. It seems to have started in last year. But not really sure. It's not really a bug but a kinda glitch as it's not sending you to the wrong link but misreading where you're pressing on the screen.
If you pay close attention when pressing a link you'll see your intended link isn't always highlighted. This is when it happens. You can go back and try again and it works.

What phone and browser are you using? When did this start happening


Android and Chrome

Its been going on a while, I think im almost certain I had issues in 2020

Using the mobile site. My problem is similar to the one stated earlier where I will click the o-t lounge then see the golf board 2 spots above it highlight

Doesn't seem to be tied to site traffic. Actually just had it happen again when I clicked the thread about the person faking their vaccine i ended up on the one about trying to bribe a police officer.

Im gonna use a different browser tomorrow and will see if it still happens

Glad to hear someone else has this problem. Thought it was just my phone.

Seems to be a chrome problem. Don't experience it in Opera

The hamsters are on a keto diet to get in better shape. Once they can spin the wheel faster, the site will load quicker.





But really,the problem is still occurring, so I'd say no.
