Just a quick suggestion I think would be great to these forums is TapaTalk. It's a forum reader software for mobile systems that provides a friendly editor to easily write topics, posts, messages, etc. There's two primary versions: the client (which is installed on a mobile device) and the server plugin (that gets installed on the forum to properly format everything for the mobile client. The fully-functional client is $3 (at least for Android) and there's a free sever plugin that supports multiple forum software, including IPBoard 3. Not sure if it supports IPBoard 1.3 but anyhow...
I just bought the client since using the mobile browser often becomes a pain in the ass. Especially when trying to fix typographical errors. Since I'm on my mobile right now, please bear with me --- if this suggestion has been discussed before, my apologies for the unintended redundancy.
I heard a v2 of this site might be deployed later, in which it might make more sense to implement later, should it be considered.
Anyhow, those are my thoughts.
