    I had 99 positives on the old iTrader. Never could break 3 digits, my last 5 trades they didn't submit a rating.

    We started with Vbulletin at the forums I ran but with one of the sites we couldn't get it to work with our Wordpress front page. We tried and tried and finally went to Xenforo and it turned out to be awesome. It takes a little time but after people started clicking around and starting finding things they figured out it's a lot like vBulletin even though it's different.

    Our guys loved the ability to dump huge amounts of photos from events they were attending and to upload batches in a single post.

    Hooray! Another awesome improvement on the ignore feature! When you have somebody on ignore and you click 'new posts', you never see the threads started by anyone on your ignore list. I'm not naming names, but some vendors who tend to show up 3-4 times a week just long enough to bump 3-4 of their threads peddling products have made my ignore list. Now I never see their threads any more!

    I ignored them and they still show up when I sign into Tapatalk.

    Or I could just stop coming around the forum. I like Tapatalk. I very rarely get on the forums from a computer and Tapatalk makes it easy for me.

    I found this fourm by using tapatalk but I like going straight to the site better some times. I can't view some photos in tapatalk that I can on the fourm site for some reason. Used the fourm site today from my phone and really like the layout better then tapatalk. Should have joined the fourm ten years ago when I bought the car. I am making up for lost time now though. 10 ten years and 10k miles on her. Three years it never moved.

    I've never used Tapatalk.
    Always access the forum using a web browser, usually Chrome, on my laptop and on my phone.
    Used to use Firefox, switched to Chrome a few months ago.

    The layout is responsive, so viewing it on a phone actually looks really good.
    I only wish that the little black dots I have to click on to go to the first new post in a thread, would be a bit bigger, to be easier to click with my big thumb.

    Have you viewed the site on your phone using a browser after the forum update?

    You don't have to click on that dot. Just click on the post thread title and it will take you directly to the first unread post. No need to click on that dot.

    Thanks guys. I was stuck using the old way of doing things.
    Clicking on the title does bring me to the newest post, that's a cool feature!
