Hello comrades

As lots of you will know, we've been developing a brand new, souped up version of the Mumsnet mobile site for seven geological eras quite a long time now.

We can now exclusively reveal that the new mobile site is... TOTALLY AND UTTERLY ABOUT TO BE RELEASED, LIKE, ANY TIME NOW.

We've tested it on loads of MNers (flowers to those who have helped out) but inevitably there will be glitches that only reveal themselves once tens of thousands of you dive in and start using it - so please use this thread to let us know about those (with the usual info about browsers and devices).

And if you like it, please pass along cake and wine to ShamTech, BrunoTech, JessicaMumsnet and all the other techs and MHQers who have been working their digits off on this.

The new improved apps are coming, honest... but in the meantime, if the old apps are driving you bonkers, do please take the new mobile site for a test drive.

Will we be able to tell instantly? Is it a tweak or a full on change?

It is a full-on change. Like when they change the Doctor.

Give it a go in about ten minutes...

Right MNHQ! I have my volume turned up and I fully expect a tardis noise to announce the arrival of the new site you do realise everyone will moan don't you

trikken Wed 20-Aug-14 15:00:50

Ooh exciting!

Nobody will moan and it will all work perfectly

I've seen a preview. Did you sort out the windows phone glitches?

Cocolepew Wed 20-Aug-14 15:05:17

Im on the mobile site now , will it magically change ?
Im a bit scared .

trikken Wed 20-Aug-14 15:06:46

Im refreshing my page constantly waiting for the regeneration.

NotMrsTumble Wed 20-Aug-14 15:09:27

Still the same from what I can see. Mind you, I've not heard the swishing of the tardis yet...

When we smash the champagne bottle against the side of the code I may not fully understand the process you'll see it as soon as you load a new page.

We've asked ShamTech to shout a countdown across the office but he's not playing ball. However there is a distinct stirring in the Tech area.

Oohhhh <braces self>

Freebirdy Wed 20-Aug-14 15:13:14

Oh this is exciting! I love new tech stuff

ShamTech (MNHQ) Wed 20-Aug-14 15:15:46

We're nearly there everybody. Will post again shortly when it's live!

shock imagining shamtech with an 80s poodle perm now...

AtYourCervix Wed 20-Aug-14 15:23:22

How exciting.

Do we get free booze to celebrate?

Freebirdy Wed 20-Aug-14 15:25:07

Atyourcervix I'm going to be licking my phone to see if I can get any of that smashed bottle of champagne, give it a go...

AtYourCervix Wed 20-Aug-14 15:27:05

I have 6 bottles of prosecco lined up in the fridge. Shall I crack one open?

RustyBear Wed 20-Aug-14 15:30:25

Are we going to get the TARDIS emoticon back for this regeneration, then?

RustyBear Wed 20-Aug-14 15:31:07

Or do we have to make do with KateSMumsnet's version?
