How do you access the forum? (Tapatalk?)

Post by Starwitch »

What are you using to access this forum? The forum requires a plug-in if we want to be able to use the Tapatalk app, but I'm not sure it's really even worth it from what I'm hearing about it. It's a hassle for me to update the Tapatalk plug-in, so if there aren't many people using it, I'm going to get rid of it. Are there better ways to access the forum through your smartphone?

I usually access the forum on my laptop, so just using chrome, but on the occasion that I do access it on my phone, I use tapatalk.

I've been mostly using the app, but if needed it can be done on a phones browser too, just might be a little more difficult to read. Still perfectly doable without the app.

The app is convenient but with the trouble it is causing I can see where removing it might be required.

If you choose to keep it, maybe there is a mod/admin/Etc who uses the app already that you might feel comfortable granting admin controls over the app?

What I understood from tapatalk support was if you login as an admin (I believe as an admin IN tapatalk) you can control it all.

But again... Might be too much of a pain, it depends on the apps ease of use in the admin settings to determine if it will even be worth it. It might be too complicated for just anyone to use, or it could be very user friendly. There are many programs/apps/addons out there, they are all different.

Or you might not have anyone who uses the app that you can grant admin access to(Or feel comfortable doing so).

Whatever the case may be, there's options.

I'm sure your members will go with the flow of any choice you make. =)

Also think about this... EUTM has been around longer than anyone had access through tapatalk. So it's not required to function. On the other hand, I'm sure there might be some members who signed up after seeing EUTM through tapatalk. I know of some people who asked how to join through tapatalk & I messaged them with a link & instructions because you can't Signup through tapatalk, only through the forum itself on a browser.

I'll go with whatever you choose, but I do admit to liking the convenience of the app.

Could you please find something else to replace Tapatalk with if you are going to discard it. Just a suggestion and like Mystie Graves I find Tapatalk more convenient.

I use tapatalk to read the forum while I'm at work. I think it was tapatalk, not browser where I found the forum.
But of course, if it's a hassle I understand if you choose not to support it.

I use Chrome both from my computer and phone. Everything is more organised like that. For me tapatalk is useful just for connecting with the others and receiving notifications when somebody writes me a pm or quotes my post.
We can do it without the app too,don't bother too much about it. The most of us love the site regardless of its form ;)

P.S.the new members who want to register here may have problems finding the register button or understanding why they can't be accepted immediately. On tapatalk they can ask the other members for aid or just ask questions so that they convince themselves that what we do here is true.

I just use chrome on my phone. I've never used tapatalk.

It would be nice to not have to worry about the ads anymore. :fairy:

I also use browsers, both on my computer and my phone. Downloaded the app, but it's nothing I would use as I don't see the forum as it is on the browser and it doesn't look as tidy to me. I guess it's a matter of taste. But I vote remove the app if it's going to cause trouble.

I have no problem surfing the pages here from my android tablet. I switch around from Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer. They all work fine, Chrome...the best.
I would presume only the folks with tapatalk can see the emoji like [Heavy Black Heart] << this is what it looks like for those without tapatalk.
It also seems to create trouble for those trying to add a pic.

I also use Tapatalk. It's convenient for me because I follow a couple of other forums on Tapatalk and it keeps them organized and in one place for easy access. I have not tried viewing the site through chrome yet, but I could download chrome on my phone and try it if need be.

Thanks for all the feedback! We'll keep Tapatalk, since a lot of people do use it. Getting it updated is a different issue though, and some of the problems we're having stem from the plug-in here on the forum not being updated. That's why the moderators and I can't admin the Tapatalk forum and chat room.

It stinks about the ads in signatures. Hopefully a member or mod will write to each person with ads in their signature and direct them toward the thread that tells them how to turn that off. Tapatalk should be happy to have our traffic in their app. They shouldn't be putting ads on this forum.

Thanks Mystie.Graves, for PM'ing me about Tapatalk and helping with the adult content spam.
