The encryption announcement is presented when you are not logged into the forums. It's been there for years. The old vbulletin software hid it better but Xenforo kind of puts it in your face if you're not logged in.Running the possibility of irritating the powers that be, but I have to wonder why we couldn't have shared the Taptalk info more aggressively? I've spent time trying to troubleshoot Taptalk to now only find out its not being used. I visited the regular RR site in conventional mode and was greeted with a banner proclaiming that all negative comments on encryption will be immediately deleted. Since the policy on encryption comments is hardly new (and was standing policy), I'm left to wonder why we couldn't have been more user friendly and been notified about the Taptalk situation in a similar fashion and spared the dramatic over encryption?
As for Tapatalk, I'm not sure how it could have been conveyed better? A recent update broke it and Lindsay decided to disable it. I have a feeling that he believed people who used Tapatalk would visit the forum through a browser and discover the reason.
I can certainly put up an announcement about it but I'm not sure what the point would be since it's been gone for two weeks.
