It's a bug, you have two threads now :)

 

Just ignore the error and everything works out in the end.

Yeah, you may want to check and see if in fact you did create the thread that the error said you didn't.  There has been some discussion about this, but I don't know the current status from the app perspective of how/when it may be resolved.

Just installed a TapaTalk update on the server...hope that maybe they fixed it.  (Not sure if it is a TapaTalk server side plugin issue or app side issue.)

I can't create a new topic either.

Congratulations. After being a member of DBSTalk for years, you have succeeded in degrading this forum to an unusable environment that I will never want to visit ever again. Shame!

You may have received an error from the app but if you are referring to OTA signal strength too strong? as the new topic you were trying to create it was indeed created.  http://www.dbstalk.c...gth-too-strong/

Perhaps I was a bit harsh in my criticism.  The desktop interface is OK, but the mobile interface is not to my liking at all.  I you had not pointed it out, I would never have known the post had actually been created, hence my frustration.

 

Thanks for pointing it out.

I just had this problem with the iPhone app.  It gave me an error when creating a new topic.  I tried a few times.  I finally gave up and logged on with my PC only to find that I had actually created three threads.

The iPhone app for DBSTalk is no longer being updated as Apple wants $100 to update it.  Please use the FREE version of TapaTalk and add DBSTalk to your forum list.  We more than likely will phase out the dedicated android app also at some point.

Really? $100 is too much?

When you consider that plus the monthly cost of the dedicated app itself...yes.  Even more so when a free one can be used.

 

https://tapatalk.com/build.php

 

It all adds up to the cost of site operations.

 

(The app made $3.19 last month in ad views.)

 

Sad part is as more and more people move to tablets etc, the more or more money the site looses for operations. (As then we do not get full ad payments as TapaTalk controls the ads.)  It is the way the future is going.

 

Hope this helps.

Yes, I understand better now, thanks David. 

 

I will stick to my laptop now not just because I prefer a real keyboard....

I know you don't like to push memberships too much, but maybe we need a membership drive.

 

I really wish the bug could be fixed, it happens in the normal Tapatalk app as well. It's not really a problem for me, I know to ignore the error. But many don't. It eventually gets cleaned up of course.

 

I almost think that it's a two pronged issue, not affecting all sites. I can't believe that they haven't fixed it if it affects every site.
