Short, concise description of the idea
Better implementation of LJ for mobile devices
Full description of the idea
The existing implementation of LJ Mobile is lacking. Tests of most "mobile-ready" pages via http://ready.mobi result in fairly low scores.
While the mobile front page (http://www.livejournal.com/mobile) and the friends list accessible there (http://www.livejournal.com/mobile/friends.bml) will render decently, the ?format=light style appended to individual entries is *not* enough, and most pages will refuse to render on many common mobile devices.
As an example: http://etherlad.livejournal.com/340093.html?format=light rates 2/10 on ready.mobi. The page rates 13 "passes," 4 "warnings," 8 "fails," and 2 comments.
Please view http://ready.mobi/results.jsp?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fetherlad.livejournal.com%2F340093.html%3Fformat%3Dlight&locale=en_EN for more information.
Registering livejournal.mobi (redirecting to livejournal.com/mobile) might not be a bad idea, either.
- Wider, more universal support for Livejournal on mobile devices. This is really the only thing, but I feel it's rather major, especially as mobile phones become more prevalent.
- Investment of time. That's really the only drawback I can think of.
