    Just made a note that the STH Forums will likely move to XenForo 2.x line sometime in Q2 2018.

    This will likely involve a platform upgrade as well as a theme upgrade.

    Any comments on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Another bit I am seriously looking at: removing Tapatalk. Tapatalk is basically a nightmare service to support and now they have started spamming even more. Average users on Tapatalk is sub 100/ day and our revenue from Tapatalk does not cover the expense of keeping it alive.

    I find myself using the mobile site more than tapatalk. The only times when tapatalk is useful for me is when I'm having private conversations. The instant notification there is helpful.

    Patrick, the mobile site is far superior to the tapatalk junk, I ditched that service years ago.

    My vote (not that it matters), junk tapatalk for good. :)

    agreed, occasionally my phone drops to taptalk and it is a pain to navigate and work through all of the ads every other post...

    the mobile site is easier to navigate.

    I like everything in one place with the TT app. When sth fS were older mobile experience was bad. Now it's totally usable even on the phone.

    I read on xf2 and it's supposed to be even more mobile friendly.
