Yes, the HTTP User Agent string is different for the Android and iPhone. The string is sent along with the HTTP request. I don't think this was a "change", but just that the mobile version of the site presented to an Android User Agent is probably still in beta mode - thus the "test" text.

All I can tell you is there was no notice given to the moderators of any upgrade. We're notified so we can keep an eye out for members having issues. Obviously there's no way to keep track of browser upgrades on individuals equipment, ISP changes and the like. Often these issues occur between the chair and the keyboard

Donna, it seems like my job deals mainly with that area. Understandable though. Technology changes daily and unless you work in IT I don't see how you could ever keep up -- or want to.

Which is why I don't use the FGRV app and was unaware that the Escape Forum app was in place.
I learned to touch type in grade 10 and I'm unable to adapt to touch screens. I need a proper key-board.

The good old days of trouble shooting guides started with:
1. Is it plugged in?

Now we ask or tell:
1. Reboot
2. Clear the cache
3. What upgrades were done recently on your device?
and on and on.

A page titled "test" is a pretty strong indication that it was not supposed to shown to the public. That explains why moderators were not told of it: it wasn't supposed to out there at all!

Many problems are due to user error. On the other hand, software deployment glitches certainly happen; there's no reason this forum would be immune.

In the end, little harm was done - just some annoyance for a small fraction of users (those using mobile devices with the website rather than the app).

That makes sense, but when using my Android tablet to view the Escape Forum, I almost always use a browser to view the web site, rather than the recently provided app. I've used three different browsers (Browser, Firefox, and Chrome) and I've never seen a page labelled "test" before - it has been in production release for a long time. The biggest changes I've noticed have been the increase in ads and the annoying prompts to use the app.

More $$$ for the forum owners= less enjoyment for the users

Huh? A member started the topic. So how could it NOT be public if in a thread or topic.
