I sometimes like to read chit chat in various places with my Blackberry, but don't like the fact that the page gets really badly formatted, and I have to scroll though all my recent game and hot games list to get to the good stuff. I created an alternative mostly for myself; it just reads the main chit chat rss feed, and links to the individual thread rss feeds. You can't post or see thumbs, but it is a heck of a lot easier to read on my cell phone.

If you can use it, feel free!

The one thing you'll notice is that the posts in a thread are ordered from most recent back to the original post. It might take a little bit to get used to. Threads themselves are ordered by most recently active, so that's normal. Clicking on a username still takes you back to the BGG site.

edit: I know someone has done a real mobile site for all of BGG, but last I heard it went down because of changes in BGG 2.0.

edit2: Also, you'll only get the latest 25 posts in a thread, or all the posts in the past 24 hours (at least that's how the feeds seem to work).

another edit: whoops, the links back to BGG users are broken. I'll fix that tonight or tomorrow. Okay, fixed.

This is truly evil. My life as I have known it comes to and end now. There is not much time left until I am assimilated into the Borgian "ChitChat" collective by means of this insidious tool.
