Hiya fellers, the Forums (all the subforums here) have been excruciatingly slow and quiet lately, 
even by the normally slow and quiet standard we're used to.  Your moderators are wondering 
how much if any of that is due to the godawful mess that the new forum hosting service, Tapatalk, 
has foisted on us since they recently took control of the service from our previous and far more 
user-friendly hosts, FreeForums (see the July 2017 Update thread for more details).  

Yes, Tapatalk has made quite a hash of things here, and at the worst, most inconvenient possible 
time for your moderators.  We've been trying, when time allows, to remedy some of the problems, 
and we'll be at it well into the fall, trying to restore full functionality bit by bit.  We see we have some 
new members registered since the transition, so we're guessing that procedure is working properly, 
but maybe it's blocked other folks who've tried to sign in -- we have no way of knowing unless you 
tell us.  

Is anyone having trouble accessing the forums here or reading the messages?  Is anyone finding it 
impossible to post or send us a PM?  Maybe you've tried to contact us through the Forum software 
and your messages aren't reaching us (our Forum PM inbox is empty).  

If any of these problems are afflicting you, and you're unable to post a message to the Test Forum, 
contact us directly via e-mail -- send to me, webmeister Butch, at this address:  Butch7999(at)aol.com 
-- of course replacing (at) with @ ...  and I'll try to get things sorted for ya.

Hi Butch.
No problem accessing the forum.

Am working on my room and stuff - and haven't bought any games.
Hopefully things will pick up when summer turns to fall?

I will post some more pics at the National soon - but nothing really game oriented.  As said - 
it was slim pickens and what I did see?  I wouldn't pay their asking or negotiated 10% off price.
Mike

Hi Butch,
Kevin Hennessy from St. Paul here.  I seem to have no problem getting on.  When I remember you are there (sorry).

So the Taptalk app is legitimate and free?  I'm guessing yes but just want to make sure.  If I am getting updates on my phone I will be even more up-to-date than the yahoo forum days.

Kevin

Hey there Kevin, always good to see you posting here.  Be sure to click that little 
"subscribe" icon at the lower left (the thingy marked with the spanner) to get a 
notification and reminder of replies and new posts in any forum or thread.  

We really don't know, sorry, how (or if) the Tapatalk app works on mobile devices.  
Let us know how well it's working for you, if it's working at all!
