I wish they would...I'm heading to California tomorrow and it would come in handy so I don't have to wade through all the New Posts just to keep up with the stuff I've been involved with.

Any level 1 user can now e-mail any other person on the forums through their profile. I don't think this was an option before. It doesn't show the e-mail address, but it does allow them to fill out a form to e-mail.

Also, regular users can now click on Forum Moderators or Waze Champs or Wiki Italia and PM the entire group. I don't think this option was available to people who were not members of those groups before. I don't know if that's necessarily a security issue, but I've gotten a barrage of e-mails over the past week where people have been BCCing the Champs group or the Moderators group for things that weren't really necessary. I even got one in some foreign language that I didn't recognize.

Yeah, I see that the option isn't in your profile. It just seems like that should be of by default.

Got Participated and Thanks in the old version of Taptatalk (1) for iOS. Looks a little different, but it works.

As of last night, I noticed that Tapatalk was screwing up nested quotes if there was more than 2 or 3. Instead of just rejecting the post like the forum software does, it allowed it, but dropped a couple of the [quote...] tags and made it look like some of the quoted text was part of the new post.

That, and I have a feeling that the "Favorite Subjects" (in Tapatalk) is somehow erratic - not all my participated threads become automatically favorites or so it seems.

Not only this, I'm regularly loosing some Favorites, even these I've already written into (e.g. the Android 3.6.0.0 thread, but also other ones) and/or already multiple times subscribed myself into.


Okay...this was supposed to be an example of the nested quote problem, but it seems to have gone away.

I noticed on the web interface the quotations are fine. I see in this post on tapatalk all the quotes are visible, but when I view jasonh300's post on tapatalk I only see the last quote level.[/quote]

Yes. Tapatalk filters out all but the last level. I like that feature but all the levels come out when you try to quote.

(This one's going to be messed up.)

Yes, which really isn't the easiest thing to do.

You had to practise this anyway in web forum, as it was rejecting more than 3 quotes as well. (Not tried with the updated version.)


The problem is that tapatalk doesn't reject it. It lets the post go through and messes it up. On the web forum, it stops you from posting.

One other thing that seems to have been swept under the rug...the dashboard stopped counting forum posts after the upgrade, so it's been frozen in time since February 17.

Tapatalk 1, in forum view, still doesn't correctly display the presence of new posts in several forums.

There's also the issue of the "Solved" function only appearing in certain forums...actually, I only remember seeing it in one of the administrative forums, as well as the "Quick Reply" function.

The "Solved" button may not be necessary all of the forums, but it would be handy in Unlock Request forums.
