the two views are different and i'd like to know for admin purposes which view is being used more in general. if you are using a tablet, it is probably using desktop view in default unless you manually select mobile view.
i know the mobile view of our site isn't great and i noticed some broken links. and i have no idea why the CFL logo isn't aligned properly but it looks weird. i will be working to fix the mobile issues in the coming days. i rarely use the mobile version and my old iphone hates it. but i use my tablet in mobile view sometimes to see what the mobile users are looking at because i know many of our users are on mobile devices.
also if any of you predominantly mobile users (hello @Jon) have suggestions for improvements or needed fixes, please post them here.

Try just scrolling from top to bottom in a hardcore thread with hundreds of replies such as this one:
