    They have changed the policy. Tapatalk no longer works.

    Not sure that I would call it a policy change, rather than closing a loop hole that Tapatalk allowed.

    Exactly. We have always been required to accept the "terms of service" before posting in the classifieds. But Tapatalk had a hole in it that let posting in the classified section take place. We didn't realize it, kind of found it by accident, and changed the site's administrative settings so that we are in step with the actual rules. So it's not a policy change at all, it's merely as Okie4570 says above, closing the loophole so we are in compliance with the requirement.

    It's still easy enough to post an ad using your phone though. It's been said elsewhere, but worth repeating here I think; just open OKShooters.com using a browser on your phone, then the normal web site pops up and the terms of service thing will automatically be there for you to accept, and you can then easily post your ad. Use Tapatalk for quick access to the various discussion forums, but use a browser to access the site to post an ad in the classified section.

    I do not mean to cloud the waters, but here's a shortcut method I found to access the web site on your phone. I have my settings adjusted so that I receive an email notification on my phone when I get a PM. So, to access the web site easily and quickly, I simply open one of the emails that says I have a PM, then click on the tab that says "View all PM's" and bingo! I'm instantly transferred over to the web site. There are other advantages to this too, by being on the web site, rather than in tapatalk, I have access to the member list, all my PM's, the classifieds, the Feed, the home page, the ability to search, I can see the newest posts, etc.

    Tapatalk is a shortcut. It lets us easily access our various forums so we can read and post to the various discussion sections. It's not a complete one-on-one substitution for being on the actual web site itself, and that is true for every forum out there, not just OKShooters.

    So, @GUN DOG, since you asked, I hope this helps. If you have any questions, either ask here, or send me a PM and I'll be happy to assist.

    I hadn't really thought about it much, but I imagine its a lot faster then using a phone?
