I think it has something to do with VIP status

I never had them before today, but now I can't scroll thru a page without looking at ads for vacations or some other junk.

Interesting!
Tom noticed he had the same problem yesterday and we were going to post and ask about it. It does have something to do with the Tapatalk app tself. I bought the pro version years ago as did others and they (I assume TheCzar and Terry). I will need to spend some time in the development side. Unfortunately we have no control of these ads nor do we make any revenue for the site off of them so I would like to see them gone as well. For the time being, it might be better to use the mobile friendly version of the site via your phone or iPad browser. it is very nice as well and ad free!

I did have the pro version but somehow lost it. I was still ad free until a few days ago. And now they want me to go full VIP status.

Oh so it was OB!'s fault..... Or was it Tom's fault for not showing him how to fix it.

Maybe it wasn't really a problem until somebody looked at the button that needed to be pressed but hadn't yet been pressed even tho it should have been before it was lost in the first place?

But what if the button wasn't lost in the first place & only just not looked at? The right person to look at the button might not necessarily have been available during the time the button should have been pressed in the first place. Now that presents a whole new list of issues, if the right person to look at the button hadn't presented themselves, then the right button wouldn't be able to be pressed, even if the right person to press the button that needed pressing was present. So, the combination of the right person to press the button had to be present & the right person to look at the button that needed pressing had to be present also, this was the correct situation that needed to present itself, & it did! :kewl:

Learning generally boils down to "Repetition or the avoidance of pain", some people learn by doing, some by watching and some just have to pee on the electric fence.
