Let me preface my further remarks concerning that piece of garbage known as the Tapatalk "bulletin board platform" by saying that I am a 72-year old disabled Viet Nam veteran more or less housebound out in the countryside, and my site on Zetaboards was my intellectual stimulation each day. I borrow computer time, so am limited to the hours per day that I have access to a computer. Thus, I had learned to make the most of that time, and Zetaboards offered me a perfect platform for maximizing my efforts in the time I had each day to tend to my site, which I started in 2010 as an informational and educational place in Cyberspace. Thus, I had a reading room, not a chat room. All of that has been stripped from me by this acquisition or whatever it really was, of Zetaboards by Tapatalk. So what really did happen here? There is where the questions arise, because it seems many besides myself were totally blindsided here, and there are no answers forthcoming from Tapatalk. There was a type of help forum but it was abruptly shut down the other day by the corporate censors who now control Tapatalk's board, and all the comments, which were complaints about the takeover and the crappy Tapatalk board, disappeared. I learned something was happening Monday afternoon, 20 Aug. 2018, when my Zetaboard site became inoperational, to then be replaced with the Tapatalk board, which is nothing but a very cheap, very flawed, stupid word processer that is worth maybe $.50 because it is such a piece of crap. I used to look forward to mental stimulation on Zetaboards. Tapatalk has replaced that with aggravation and downright anger on my part. But more on that for later. From Wikipedia, what I know now is as follows: In 2016 Tapatalk acquired Yuku, and in July 2017 migrated the contents of that service to their own bulletin board platform. In July 2017, Tapatalk also acquired Zetaboards and zIFBoards (formerly Invisionfree), the forum services operated by Zathyus Networks. end quotes That word "acquired" causes a peripheral question to arise, that being exactly what was it that Tapatalk "acquired" from Zetaboards, and my answer would be my intellectual property, which incidentally got thoroughly trashed by Tapatalk in this "migration" process, because all the formatting of my files got altered, so as to make documents unreadable. But this is more the key sentence now, to wit: Tapatalk acquired Yuku, and in July 2017 migrated the contents of that service to their own bulletin board platform. end quotes I have no idea what Yuku was, but to me, Zetaboards was a first-rate platform that allowed me, who has no computer background, to operate a professional site, as said, for informational and educational purposes. What is called Tapatalk's "bulletin board platform" is as said a cheap piece of garbage that Winter Wong, the founder of Tapatalk, found in a trash heap somewhere. According to the only bio I could find for him, it says that Winter founded Tapatalk with a vision of transforming online community experience on mobile devices and beyond. He certainly did that alright - he has transformed the pleasant Zetabords experience into a nightmare experience on Tapatalk.
