    I got an update last week and started having all kinds of issues, some of which are documented on the this forum. Slow loading, if at all was one I didn't mention. Last week I kept looking for threads on the mobile site to see if the site or tapatalk servers were down because I couldn't get into this forum more often than I could. A.C. is still very sluggish but it is eventually loading vs last week where all forums were timing out and giving me error messages of differing words.
    I got an update yesterday that for the first time I ever remember stated a fix for url misdirections , something that has plagued Tapatalk since its inception.
    This forum is loading much faster, no more incorrect redirects, photos are viewable again , and other goodies that went away with the update last week.
    I also like how they've added individual forum notifications ability for likes and quotes in the form of a bell icon in the upper right of the forum home page.

    I know I've had an update recently, but I was at least getting notifications this morning, then it stopped working altogether. So I'm thinking it's a server side problem this time, even the I know how good they are at pushing out updates that break things.

    I'm on TT now with no issues. There was an update today for me so maybe they fixed it.

    Yeah. That leads me to believe it's a server issue as well. If it were an update that broke things, it'd be broken the whole time, not off and on like this. Sounds like they're having trouble on the back end.

    Not sure if I follow them on Twitter anymore, but I should probably check and see if they've posted anything about an outage.

    Looks like I'm back in now. I didn't realize it before, but I was notified on my phone when you posted this.

    That'd do it. Haha! Hey, what Twitter app are you using? I'm getting sick of the stock offering.

    A DNS issue in 2016 should never happen. Google as a secondary or another DNS server. I hate sloppy sys admins.
