Appreciate the feedback.
On the topic of responsive, it is very possible. I'm no expert on mobile themes but all traditional forums that I've frequented on mobile have the composer at the top with keyboard at the bottom in portrait and landscape mode. The keyboard is always assumed to take the bottom half of the screen. Right now on any large screen android phone I've tried (SGS4, SGS5 and Note 3) this on the keyboard is blocking the entire composer. It's really completely unusable. At the very least composer should be moved to top half. Please don't misinterpret this as anything other than constructive criticism I'm purely speaking as an end user of nodeBB for about a week now.
If you mean this isn't happening today, I will disagree. If you're running 0.43 go to ACP and activate nodebb-plugin-metro-tiles. Will instantly kill nodebb on restart. No warnings or anything. If you mean this will be introduced with 0.5 then hurray
Lol, I know, it's not for me on any network, office, laptop, device but we'll leave it at that
Again speaking as a consumer it is a useful feature if you're posting in transit. Given this is a mobile friendly platform I think there's merit in including this. A lot of the popular platforms support this today in some shape or form I believe phpBB, xenforo and VBulletin.
Good find, maybe I'll try to hack together a widget/plugin out of this if there's some documentation.
Keep it up guys
EDIT: Lol, and I find a bug as I type this. The list in my response is 1,3,4,5 but when I submit/save it it's reordered automagically to 1,2,3,4.....
