06.25.2016: Exactly a month since my last update (somehow), I'm once again bringing in some big changes. The forum structure has been revamped AGAIN, essentially reversing the changes made back in November. The 'Old IGNO' style of posting is officially back, by popular demand!! We will henceforth be emphasizing our signature style of spontaneous in-character discussions instead of the ill-attempted shift towards traditional roleplaying. Head over to the Casual RP forum and jump into the action!! And fear not - the traditional topics are still here, they just got a new home, too!! --SG2
05.25.2016: Am I alive again? Who knows. Regardless of my state of existence, I'm doing some much-needed cleanup over at IGNOpedia. I'd like to regain my IGNO mojo and start attracting newbies now that summer break has begun, for the bored folks out there looking for a new RP hangout... --SG2
12.1.2015: Completely rewrote the Element Guide from scratch. Now much more comprehensive!! --SG2
11.24.2015: Major overhaul in-progress!! Changed the skin, revamped the forum structure, and fixed a few things under the hood. Stay tuned for more revisions to the world, the map, and completely redone backstory of IGNOLand!! --SG2
11.12.2015: I'm back from the dead. Time to take a break from playing Skyrim and make a return to IGNOLand - big things planned!! --SG2

The landscape of the internet has changed a lot in the past several years, and more and more people these days are using mobile devices as their windows to the world. As such, most sites implement some form of mobile theme to make browsing on small-screen devices easier - however, sometimes this comes at the expense of some of the full version's features.
This topic is for links to resources that are out in the open on the desktop theme (either in the header carousel or topbar menu), but may be harder (if not impossible) to access on mobile.
(note: if you have a tablet, or use your smartphone in landscape mode rather than portrait, the default skin may look completely fine. I'd recommend tablet users try this rather than use the mobile theme, for sure)
FORCE MOBILE THEME
Should your device/browser somehow not automatically serve you the mobile layout, click this link to force it. You may also find this link at the veeeery bottom of the board in desktop view, but it's rather tiny and difficult to find/click.
Works perfectly on mobile devices, and most browsers should even remember your name and icon. Also note: Firefox mobile supports audio notifications, even if you're multitasking and the browser is running in the background. Webkit-based browsers (IE, most mobile browsers) do not seem to support them at this time, but do let me know if you find another mobile browser that does.
ACTIVE TOPICS LIST
The most recently-replied to topics, which can be sorted to a particular time range. This page does not adapt to the mobile theme, but any links clicked from the list will load in the mobile layout as normal. May require some scrolling and zooming, but nonetheless a very useful tool that's not readily apparent on mobile.
List of registered users. Like the above, it will not adjust to fit the mobile layout - though any user's profile you click from the list will.
Another page with no mobile equivalent, the search function is nonetheless an important feature to have access to.
Link to the map of IGNOLand. Note that even when updated, the link to the map will always be the same (though you may need to clear your cache for the changes to take effect), so you're free to bookmark it for quick reference if you need to do so.
IGNOLand's Tumblr. Mostly nonsense, possibly NSFW.
IGNOLand's Twitter feed. WIP and not nearly as active as it should be.
While the above should work adequately on mobile, it's highly recommended you install a dedicated IRC app on your device (I recommend either AndroIRC or Holoirc on Android), and connect to server/host irc.epicirc.com and channel #igno.
The voice and text chat program we sometimes use. It operates on an invite system, however, so you will need to contact a staff member to generate one for you.
Our (very WIP) Wordpress site, intended to provide a 'wiki' about our universe, has its own fully-functional mobile mode.
NEW USERS, PLEASE READ THIS FIRST!! This will help walk you through the process of getting settled here in our community.
Guide to the IGNOLand canon.
The app. Note that we use a DoHTML template, which would understandably be a pain in the ass to edit on mobile, so don't worry about it. If for some reason you can only fill out your profile app on a mobile device, just provide us the required information and leave a note to the effect of 'mobile edit' and a staff member will fill in the template for you.
Guide to the IGNOLand elements.
Guide to the IGNOLand alignments.
That should be all the important stuff. If you have any further questions or difficulty finding resources from the mobile layout, please let us know here or in the cbox - we'd be happy to help you!!

A few additional notes about using the mobile theme:
