Don't you use imgr or bucket?
Photobucket is so simple, take a pic, hit upload, hit copy button for the link, paste in your post, 10 seconds
Where does Tapatalk store all of your pics for future use?
Why would I do that when I can just have the pics on my phone as is, and tap a button and upload to Tapatalk directly.

Listen there are guys that don't like Tapatalk. Cool.

Don't understand why you are commenting on these threads though if you don't use it.

I love the setup of Tapatalk and it is quicker and easier to browse and post on my phone. If Tapatalk was not around I doubt I would even look at forums unless on my laptop.

To be fair, anyone is welcome to comment on these threads as everyone is affected to some extent by the nuisance created from multiple posts/threads, especially us mods. I check in occasionally during the day but mostly in the evenings as my down time from work. I don't like spending my down time "working". ;)

iOS 10.3 just launched, so maybe that will help? :shrug:

I exclusively use Tapatalk with an iPhone 6 and do not have this issue here or on any other forums including one I moderate.

Since the Latest changes over the weekend the form is running much faster for me. Before that I had to wait 30 seconds or more for my posts to go through and just avoided hitting cancel or enter again to avoid double posting.
As our resident IT guru, Andrew, mentioned, iPhone users that do not experience these issues are likely running an older version of the TT app.

I'm commenting because it affects my browsing speed as well. If the speed wasn't affected for everyone regardless of a method used to access this forum I couldn't care less what you use Don. I'm also trying to contribute by showing folks that the new format, especially in a mobile view is excellent and perhaps someone just hasn't tried it yet. :thumbsup:

Art, you are right about the browser working well for viewing the forum. I'm sure it would be even better if I carried a larger cell phone. It still sucks for attaching photos, though.

Photo attaching is the only PITA.

I was using TT version 6.4.3 without issue but recently went back to TT Pro version 6.3.6. I think both of these are current.

Nick is right, it's simple to delete our own double posts!

In Tapatalk -

- tap on the double post and select "more"

- tap on "web view"

- when web view pops up, click on the "X" to delete post, then confirm.

Super quick and easy.

Since going active again, the tapacrap double posts are still showing up. So here's the deal, if you can't post using the tapacrap app without double posting, you have 2 choices: 1) delete your own double posts/threads or 2) don't use the app. The alternative is you catch me on a particularly bad day (like most, they end in "y") and you take the bench for the rest of the first half with 2 fouls.

I've been deleted my doubles, save for one last night that couldn't. It's pretty easy to do.

Hadn't figured out it was that easy to delete your own double post via tapatalk.
I guess many people don't do it just because they don't know (that was my case - I had forgotten it was possible, not all forums allow this).

I would suggest you just do a PSA on the main forum and just ask/oblige everybody to take care of their mess.

I may want to fight you just because I like a challenge. Banning me would save me thousands of dollars...here's to hoping this doubles on submit!

I was doing the same, but for some reason there was one post that doubled the other day where I didn't see the "x" in web view. Weird.
