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.
