Tapatalk ads?
« on: June 07, 2017, 06:28:52 AM »
So another forum I use quit tapatalk due to the ads and some behind the scenes crap the admin was having to go through.

I see that we are now getting ads on our forum when using tapatalk. Any other issues?  Not a fan of the ads myself. I can live with them as a user, but not happy about it. I just know that with my Scrambler forum, I don't go to that site as much anymore since they left tapatalk.

It is really bad on our forum now. The ads are all over the place. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Is there something we can do about it other than using the web browser on my phone?

I just see them at the top and bottom. Annoying but I can work around it.

The website's administrator can opt out of displaying the ads.
He needs to go to the admin console at Tapatalk and turn them off.
Since you didn't have ads before, then the Nova administrator has turned them on for some reason. Maybe in a misguided attempt to bring in more revenue to the club.
Beware that the amount of revenue you receive from Tapatalk for the ads is so low, its not even worth it and you have to fight with them to get your money.
As a user, you can also buy a subscription from Tapatalk to be ad free. I don't recall how much it is but its expensive.
Personally, I just don't use Tapatalk on forums that have the ads turned on.

BTW, Tapatalk is now owned by Chinese Government and is being blocked as Malware by several major anti-virus and anti-malware companies.
Not sure if the Chinese Government would even bother spying on any of our forums or if they even care about anything other than the revenue stream from their advertising.

Whoa, now there is a much bigger concern than a couple ads.

We didn't enable the ads for revenue. The BOD doesn't profit from the site and the club does not get kick backs from the BOD for these advertisements either. We will try to get them removed.

Any word on this? I don't know about anyone else but these ads have made Tapatalk unusable for accessing the forum.
The ads take up half my screen and seem to popup just about everywhere.
It should be as easy as going to the admin console in Tapatalk and turning them off.

Should have check before I typed that. Turns out you can upgrade to VIP and go ad free. It's in your profile right by settings in the app.

I already paid for the app a while back. Then it went free to all. And now this. But i get screwed. Only paid $2.99 so many years ago.
