App is good - my main gripe is too much waste space / white space in both the full site / app

I get the amazon award virus almost every time I use it from my mobile devices.    So it has really put a dent in my ability to participate.

Yes. It's amazing that Tapatalk hasn't found a way around this.

By the way, it happens not only from the Tapatalk app, but also if I access TNCR from a web browser on my iPad - never on my desktop.

I checked #2 "Meh, I'll get used to it," but I'm not sure I will -- or if I do, it won't be a comfortable fit.  It's like Sue said: too cold, and too cluttered with dopey stuff like what time the post was entered and how many times it was edited, etc etc etc.  And the avatars on the cover page.  Just annoying poorly-designed clutter.  Zeta was streamlined in comparison; sensible.  

This probably doesn't belong here, but since I'm thinking of it, it's also an annoyance that you -- I -- can't see the previous posts below the space I'm using to respond.

I agree, too much wasted space.
And I hate the blue color.
And I hate the light blue/grey text of quotes, hard to read. Maybe I'm somewhat colorblind - light blue and light grey are hard to read.
And I hate the "notify me if someone replies" -- I'm not that obsessed, and it's always on unless I click the box before submitting.
It does have a lot of features though, there is that.
Klaus has made it much better than when it was out-of-the-box new.

I hate it.

I haven't seen the virus thing in the iPad app, but the app is so horrible I hate it too, even more than the windows browser based format

Has anyone tried running Chrome on an iPad with AdBlocker? I thought that might work, but I haven't taken the time to try it yet.

Anyway, I hate tapatalk in general, it's ok with me if we dump it, with or without history

I have been in favor of purging history for a while now.

Usually people hate change and then realize it’s just fine,   This metaphor blows for all the reasons already stated.  There is no getting used to it, it’s a matter of tolerating it.  Like a chronic infection.

I get that crappy virus all the time.  Goes away for a while when I erase growing history and cookies etc.   right now I am testing incognito mode which for the moment seems to have quieted it.  The stupid virus knocks you out of the app when you delete the page.

Amazon award virus? What is that? You mean it's an actual virus program that gets installed on your phone without you knowing?

As for my opinion on Tapatalk:

I'm getting a little used to it, and I'm happy there's now at least a semi-decent app to use it on the phone. However, there are various oddities I hate (most recent discovery: you can't list all topics opened by a user). The biggest complaint is that the signal to noise ratio (i.e. percentage of screen estate that contains things I want to see) is much worse than in the old forum.

I'm still trying to figure out how to set up and log in on the tapatalk app without having to use FB or Google. ...

Well, isn't that special. Macs and iOS getting a virus that the PC does not? :lol:

I don't mind TT. I'm already used to it.

I chose 'let the mods decide'.  I don't like the platform, all the wasted cold white space is off-putting....but I'll still play if the decision is to stay here. First world problems and all that.

Yes, me too.

I will be mobile only for a few days so I don’t expect to have much activity.

I really hate this platform.

The more I use it, the more I hate it. 

Quoting is unreliable. Posting pics is haphazard as well.

The only thing that I remotely like is the fact that pictures will auto-size most of the time.
