It cuts the margins off when I want to zoom out to see the rest of the text:

Affected OS: Android and iOS

Steps to reproduce: request the desktop site of a forum thread on a mobile device

edit: the event bug has been solved by getting back the normal layout after the event

This is very frustrating. I hope this issue is addressed very soon since it is the way I can access to my Mal account from work and I would like to believe it is not a small amount of users that is affected by it.

Since the design style was changed to advertise the live concert it should be reverted back to normal in a few days when the concert is over.

With how slow things are still going and many other problems in the high priority backlog I doubt that anything can be done to adjust these problems now, especially when it will be reverted in a few days anyway. Sorry for the inconvenience until then. If you use the mobile version (not the desktop version) it should work fine though.

Yes, the mobile version has been working flawlessly, but I and many others still prefer the desktop version, because it's much easier to view everything.

btw: the button to request the mobile version while having requested the desktop version has been missing ever since the banner in the top middle has been put instead

And this issue seems to have been fixed, but now, the margins are orange/dark-red/black on desktop version (mobile) and everything is white on desktop

edit: nevermind the latter part; fixed it with cosmetic filters; still: the site could change to 16:9

Works again after the concert, just as Luna said above
