    OT - This forum is great, but gosh, it's IT function could drive you to drink!!

    I know we are lucky to have this forum, and it is free to use, but boy, sometimes you just want to put your fist through your screen! That 'double post' fault is still with us after almost a year, sometimes a page can take nearly 2 minutes to load, and just now, on seeking a sub forum, got the message 'temporary error, please try later'. I know that whoever is in charge is probably working their little socks off, but without doubt, it is the most irritating forum I use...

    Oh, and I haven't had an email alert to any subscribed threads for over 2 weeks, so I'll not know if anyone answers this LOL

    Have to agree love the forum but why no option to delete a double post just edit it? And the page loading can take an age sometimes and when it does you have to reload as some of the pictures don't appear?
    But for all its faults it so nice to hear from others and the lack of snobbery really makes it awesome, you can post your cheap G or expensive G and people just appreciate your watch for what it is not what it cost. Love it!

    I know many people do not like Tapatalk, but that is what I am using on my phone (version 6.1.2) and I have very little problems.

    I agree the newer versions of Tapatalk will flood you with ads between the topics, but the one that I'm using is not too bad in this regard.

    If you are on an Android phone, you can download older versions of applications. Look for "APK download" or simular, APK referring to the installation file of the application itself. There are many such APK database sites out there.

    The best part is that Tapatalk does picture hosting as well, so inserting pictures in a post is a breeze.

    I just use the phone browser on desktop view and find it functions pretty well with nearly every function available as per using a laptop. Found Tapatalk to be not intuitive enough.

    As I feared, I have received NO email alerts to replies of this thread (or any other thread I'm subscribed to!). The last alert I got was the 10th March - just me?

    Stephen, you missed out the bit about how sometimes when you are using a touchscreen device you can’t reply to a thread without leaving it and going in again.

    Hah, thought it was just me and my own laptop bugged - certainly so many issues in the past week especially around this site - always crashing on me, not letting me sign in, losing what I type etc etc I guess its a victim of its own success and just too much traffic on the autobahn to keep up with repairs.
