I have noticed that there is a moniker that appears with the question that stays at the top. This is nice especially for us cell phone users however it does need some tweaking.

First when I double click to make it zoom in to read the body of the question sometimes that moniker is so big it takes up most of my screen.

This gets worse, if I go to answer it, my keyboard takes half then the moniker takes nearly half (if I am lucky) which leaves a very narrow space to see what I am writing.

Sometimes I just can't respond because every time I try the response screen gets lost.

There should be a minimize button, (not a close button). It would be nice to be able to click on it if we forget what the question is.

With the minimize button on the moniker it would put it out of the way.

My phone browser is Boat and my keyboard is Slide It. Also my phone is the Droid Razr.

Thanks for reporting this. I'll see what can be done without negatively impacting desktop users

Building the kind of thing you are suggesting is going to involve quite a bit of effort for a small payoff, which I'd like to avoid unless absolutely necessary. What we've done instead is fix that title bar in place so the words don't wrap around any more on small screens as you zoom in, taking up more and more room.

Can you let me know if this is something that works for you? If not, we'll look into other solutions.

Just checked it out. Yes much better. Another suggestion might be keep the wrap around for the moniker but let zoom have no effect. That might be major too though. This does work better now.

The zoom is something that is handled automatically by each person's web browser rather than Inward Quest. Trying to interfere with it would mean interfering with how people expect their browsers to work which would be rather risky. There are many different browsers operating on many different computers so we are restricted in only doing what will work safely for most of them.

As another solution, we're now turning the floating title bar off completely if we detect you are using a small display. This might be a better solution for mobile users generally otherwise you are always losing the top part of the screen.

This works well for me. Thanks so much Simon!
