Hi All.

They seem to have confiscated my Chat Board. I think my chat board was dropped by Network 54, Never was able to update my info and they never answered my emails. Rumor has it that someone else is taking it over. Suddenly this morning my chat board was picked up like a drifting boat at sea by this Tapatalk Group (www.tapatalk.com). They want me to register and pay a donation to stay.

Mr. Bill

There is a post at Tapatalk forum about network 54 migrating to Tapatalk here

so I wouldn't think you'd need to register if you already have an account
at Network 54.

If your username and password don't work, you might have to create a new username and password to contact Tapatalk and get things straightened out.

Your forum looks completely different now and the
http://network54.com/Hide/Forum/40029
link on your homepage forwards me to
https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/MrBillsA...t-board-f40029/

I miss the dark blue color scheme and unique appearance of your old forum.
The Tapatalk-based forum looks so generic and boring, like every other forum they host. There are complaints about this at
https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/tapatalk...rds-t38793.html
Forum owners complain their members are leaving because of the change in appearance of the forum. There are also many forum owners complaining they did not receive any email notification about their board changes. One person said

There is a post about the donation links here
https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/tapatalksupport/how-to-refund-donation-to-tapatalk-t38221.html
People think they're donating to the forum owner, but instead the money goes to Tapatalk.

What a revolting development.

Considering how little traffic your forum got, you might want to consider shutting it down rather than allow Tapatalk to try and make money off of it.

Thank you Jenny.

Told them to remove my Chat Board and I removed links to it on Mr. Bill's Adventureland.

Take care,

Bill

There's still one further down the page where it says
Quote:
And if none of the above answers your questions, then you can always either visit our FORUM to ask other gamers for help and/or EMAIL MR. BILL directly.

You might want to check the links on your "Places to buy games" section. For example InteractCD is sadly no longer with us.

I don't suppose you have a backup of your forum from before they messed it up.

Thank you Jenny. Missed that one. No, no backup, but that's OK.
