Lack of interest Mobile theme: make New Posts easier to click - double the height, 1/2 the width

So is this suggestion for tabs used every where (profile, search, etc), or just here? If it's just here then that creates mismatched elements throughout.

I like the tabs the way they are now. They already take up enough space between the header and content. Don't want to turn the app into a 1/2 screen of tabs.

My suggestion wont take up any more space.
In fact if you just increase the height by 50% ... the default 2 tabs will take up 25% less height.

You could technically do with this a minor CSS if it's your preference(I know it's a suggestion for core).

Code:
html.Responsive .tabs li {
float: left;
text-align: center;
width: 50%;
}
.Responsive .tabs li a, .Responsive .tabs.noLinks li {
padding: 6px 0;
}

I personally prefer how XF has it currently, but it could use for a small amount of padding(even smaller than my screenshot)

Code:
.Responsive .tabs li a, .Responsive .tabs.noLinks li {
padding: 6px 10px;

Obviously the idea for 2 columns of tabs came from the large area of unused space.
See A and B.
Russ: On your styles, consider the 2 column approach to save space ... especially on sites that use XenMediaGallery which will add a third tab. Tabs are likely to expand IMO ... so having 4 thin hard to click tabs on top of each other will start to get silly.

The current low height tabs are awkward to click on.

Russ: The large print New Posts text is also redundant. To maximize space consider getting rid of that text.
