    Thumbs down ac main page auto-refresh

    Holy crap it needs to stop! I thought it was an issue at work, but apparently it isn't. Are you just trying to artificially inflate your pageviews? Have you even tried your site on one of the phones you promote? The autorefresh is extremely distracting and detracts from the content. I used to ebjoy visiting the site, but this just makes me hate it, especially on my epic. Why doesn't an android specific site (or the pre one even) redirect to a mobile friendly version?

    Ugh. </rant>

    Supercat, are you referring to an auto-refresh on the phone or on a computer browser? I haven't noticed any auto-refreshes on either.

    Thanks! I suspect it has to do with the twitter or facebook elements. I love android central and pre central (which isn't effected by the refresh issue) so I hope something is figured out.

    I personally have not experienced this problem but if it is a major inconvenience and bothers a bunch of people then I am sure that this will be addressed.

    Supercat1-- I understand you are bothered by this issue with the site refreshing but next time if there is an issue can you express your concerns in a polite and respectful manner. "Ranting" as you put it is not going to get the problem fixed any faster. A nice, calm and polite PM or thread would probably get this issue acknowledged and addressed even faster. So please keep that in mind for the future.
