I'm having problems loading the forums on Tapatalk today. Anyone else?

Other forums work fine and GC also loads without any problems with Chrome.

Restating the phone didn't change anything...

Just started Tapatalk a couple of min ago. Tapatalk indicated I was logged out of GC (extremely rare) and offered to log back in, which succeeded and has worked so far.

Based on experience designing software systems of similar type, I am guessing a security certificate or session key expired somewhere in the authentication chain (session or static, GC servers or Tapatalk) and the re-logging renewed the session. If that’s accurate, better design would have made it transparent (invisible) to users, but it is a very common lazy design shortcut to not worry about that.

Bingo, I had to logout from GC in Tapatalk and log back in.

All is good now.

Actually, I just had to manually log in myself again under Tapatalk. It seems to me that something got corrupted at Tapatalk and they haven’t or can’t fix it yet. On a positive, their graceful degradation to manually log back in is pretty effective.
