Will the CAPTA finally work on BlackBerry so that we can post about Metro while riding Metro?

James: I wasn't aware there was a problem on Blackberries. I'll try to take a look.

@David: The problem is that the CAPTCHA doesn't display for some reason. The input box does, and if you enter garbage you get rejected. So it seems that the backend works properly on the BlackBerries and that itÂ’s just a page rendering issue.

Will there be a mobile version of the new design? While I like it on my computer, itÂ’s a little awkward on the BlackBerry. In particular, the new nav bars render at the top of the page, making it tough to find the articles. In the old version, the nav bars rendered at the bottom of the page, leaving the articles right at the top. The comments and tags links also render strangely in the new version. Perhaps a stripped down version with no formatting would work well.

Congrats guys. I know a lot of work went into this.

I am no fan yet due to the multitude of different fonts, but I'll hang in there.
