Quick question: when tallying the votes, do you only go by the poll or do you count the posts as well? If the former, none of my votes would have counted as I can't use the poll function with my ancient phone.

Have you installed a better browser on your phone?  Opera displays polls fine on my phone, but it isn't an ancient phone.

But, you do have the epic pooper thing on your side.

Dammit, third year in the competition:

first year: first round Splent
second year: first round Jamesman  (I believe)
this year: Dimi

I believe my total amount of votes still won't exceed 10  :-[

Sweet, a pooper popularity scheme. I like it.

My phone doesn't support java. That's why I can't use Opera mini. The opera website detected my phone and told me this.

Compared to a full browser?  Obviously.

For a cell phone browser it is awfully damn good, especially for this site.  Sure beats the default browsers on Blackberry phones.  Sure beats Minuet.  What exactly are you comparing it to?

I vastly prefer the Blackberry browser on every site I've been to. The zoom on the Blackberry browser actually has varying levels. On Opera Mini, it's either completely zoomed out or completely zoomed in. So completely frustrating.

You also can't copy, say, a web address, and then paste it into the address bar.

The copy paste is annoying on Opera mini, that's it's biggest problem.  Opera doesn't do only zoomed in or zoomed out, so I'm guessing by zoomed in you mean the mode where it reformats the page to be the width of the cell phone screen.  The Blackberry browser doesn't do that, unless it's a specifically designed mobile version of a site.  That makes browsing so much easier on a small device I don't even like dealing with sites on the Blackberry browser.

Uh, no I mean when it first loads a page it is zoomed right out, for fast scrolling. But you click to zoom in, and it zooms RIGHT in. At least, that's what mine does. Whereas when you zoom in the Blackberry browser, it just zooms in as far as the next bit of text or image inwards, so you can keep zooming in and out until it's a comfortable level.

That's the reason I don't use Opera mini. It takes ages to scroll in one mode and you can't see anything in the other.

I don't get that comment at all, one of the advantages of Opera mini is how fast it can scroll through a page.  Up/down navigates through the links(and slow scroll when there aren't any) while left/right acts like a page up/down scroll.  With a trackball on the Blackberry it's completely painless to look through the entire page in the column mode.

I've had different experiences then. Zoomed in it took me quite a while to scroll down a page. I'll try it out again sometime.

Ah, yorost is talking about column mode. I don't like that mode because it re-arranges everything into a confusing order.
