I've got several from last night but I think they're all from SCM or CMC so I don't want to post that here. I'll see if I can quickly find one in the regular forums.


Well that didn't take long. Found one in the first thread I went into. And annoyingly I tapped the as while scrolling!! Dang it!

Same thing happened to me. Clicked as I tried to scroll past. And there's an ad below my post now...

I could post these all day just from this thread apparently as each time I go in, I get a new ad in DIFFERENT position in the thread. Tricky, tricky...

I'm seeing the same thing. New ad, different position each time, and very easy to click on.

No need to post more, I just wanted to see what they looked like. I will submit a ticket to see if they can remove the fake post type of ads and replace with typical banner ads like those on Forumrunner.

Is ANYONE seeing these fake post type of ads on Android?

I submitted a ticket. Once I hear what they have to say, I will let you all know. Most likely, I will at least temporarily disable ads for senior community or possibly all members in my control panel until they figure out this is an issue. I suggest to those who visit other forums that you suggest they do the same, so Tapatalk takes notice.

The desktop forum has an ad placed as the second post on each page of a thread, but the ads are very clearly labeled as such and very obviously not part of the discussion. These mobile ones on tapatalk do appear as a nuisance. I hope they can replace them with typical banner ads instead.

For those who see these ads, how many appear on a page as you scroll down? 1 per page, 2, 3? I will also see if I can borrow an iOS device as I can't get these to appear on my Android.

Ads are gone for me too! Thanks!!

I never counted, but I'm thinking there were a couple per page, depending on the number of posts.

Support responded:

There qas indeed a 12 hours window that the ads are shown more than it should and we have dial it back 2 days ago. Going forward users are going to see more of native ads then the banner but we will try our best to keep the user dustruption minimum while getting sitr owner well monetized if they want to.

I apologize for the inconvenience! The Tapatalk app will be ad-free for SCM for the month of June as a Thank You for our loyal mobile senior community members:)

Also, if you participated on this thread prior to this post and would like a 2-month supporter subscription (or extension to any current subscription), that will make the apps ad-free for the duration and will greatly reduce ads on the desktop and mobile styles too. Please send Admin a PM to claim the subscription!

I would also like to thank everyone who does not use ad-blocker software or who has put Car-Seat.Org into their whitelist or no-block list. Ads do pay for forums costs, and some ads generate a tiny fraction of a penny each time they appear, even if they are not clicked or no subsequent purchase or other action is taken. So simply visiting the forum helps pay expenses! We also appreciate your support of our forum sponsors, including Clek, Kids-N-Cribs, Graco, Britax, Nuna, Maxi-Cosi and other advertisers.

After 2 months ad-free I am resuming normal ad display for senior community members. Tapatalk indicates they have resolved some complaints a while back. Subscribers at Benefactor and Sponsor levels continue to see no banner ads on the desktop, mobile or apps. Supporter and Carseat Guru (~4 years, 5000 posts, 2500 rep) see minimal advertisements on desktop/mobile styles and none on the apps.

Any member who made a post in this Announcement/Feedback forum in May, June or July, 2015, may request a supporter subscription or extenstion of a current subscription through the end of 2015. This offer ends August 31st, 2015. Please send a PM to Admin. Offer applies even if you previously requested a 2-month extension.
