    Just this morning, every time I try to link NWFA from my e-mail I get an add for a Forumzone app for my phone. I can not go any farther without downloading it. Just stop. I do not want this app for my phone. I am just fine without it. Just more junk to clog up my phone that I don't use. Admin, please fix this problem. Allow me to link this great website from my e-mail with out this garbage add. Thanx

    It's a Tapatalk thing. I just tried to link your post from my e-mail, and it happened again. I had to get out of the link, open a new page just to get here for a reply. What a pain in the butt. Admins, please remove this.

    Definitely not something intentional, and I don't believe it's related to Tapatalk (though it could be). I'm investigating now.

    Thanx Joe. I just completed a link from my e-mail to this thread and it worked this time. For some reason I tried about 7 times earlier this morning and it would not let me get passed the app add. I don't know if you did any thing but everything is working correctly now. It was just frustrating. Thanx again Joe

    I appreciate you bringing it up right away, as I'm especially apprehensive about shady ads.

    Well it just came up again when I tried to go through the second thread I started about this. I was on my e-mail and tried to link from there.....and it popped up again on that thread. Is it my carrier and there server? I don't understand.

    That's possible. I've never heard of Forumzone, and a search didn't yield any results.

    Which carrier are you on? Which phone do you have? Can you take a screenshot?

    Hmm, no question it's Tapatalk then. The timing makes sense, we just updated it yesterday.

    Here's the option, but it's disabled:

    Sounds like it's not detecting that it isn't your first visit. Do you have cookies enabled?

    Is anyone else having this issue?

    It is a Droid, my carrier is Verizon and everything about Droid is controlled by Google. You have to have a gmail account and all the apps are through the Google store.
