Ok, thanks for the reply. Maybe this could be a new sorting option on the main TAPs page e.g. Most reviews/Least reviews.

Also, will TAP authors have any say about comments against their TAPs. For example, if someone gives a bad review based on their incorrect assumptions or lack of knowledge, will there be the ability to get it removed? Or will the TAP author just have the right of response?

All in all though, I think this is a very good feature to include :)

There is two options.
TAP author can reply and correct first poster's comments.
Second way is to report bad posts and tell what is wrong with it. I have then ability to edit or remove the entire comment.


Now there is RSS feed that can be used to see last comments.

We will add a link to this feed later.

Unfortunately the lack of free time prevents me to monitor forums, which means that I will not find TAP updates or new TAPs anymore from forums. And if I don't find updates, I can not update TAPs into TAPWorld.

Old TAPWorld had "Report old version" buttons that anyone could use. Only about 20% of reports were real reports. Other reports were made by idiot users. It took always my time to find out if TAP was really updated or not. I don't want to see these fake reports anymore!

Now you can report updated and new TAPs to me. Use email address
updates
@
tapworld
.
net

to report updates.

German users: If you report a new version to TAP that is only attached into your forum or TAP is otherwise hosted by TAPWorld (its URL starts with www.tapworld.net/files/...) send the updated file also to me! Otherwise I don't update that TAP. Non-forum users can not get files attached into your forum.

Tell me also if there is new TAPs so that I can add them into TAPWorld. If I don't know about new TAPs, I can not update them.

I do not reply to your reports. If I won't update TAP based on your report then there is something wrong in your report. Make a new and better report then. I might for example have not found the updated version.

Note also that TAPWorld has also other items, like computer programs and firmware patchs. If there is updates for these (or new items), please send an email also then.


It is also possible that you start monitoring UK or german forums and make updates into TAPWorld. If you are interested, let me know and I will give you rights to edit TAPWorld.


There has been 83 updates in last month and 22 updates in last week. Lets see can we keep these values.

Now we have created a VERY easy way to update TAPs and other items (computer software, developer stuff and so on) into TAPWorld. It only needs couple of clicks and TAP is updated.

With these instructions anyone can start updating TAPWorld. You can update any TAPs if you find new versions or if you are TAP author you can update your own TAPs.

Updaters guide can be found from TAPWorld ( http://www.tapworld.net/content/view/385 ).

If you want to start updating TAPs, please contact us and we will give you editing rights.

We already have some good updaters but we still need some more help.

I updated 12 TAPs today into TAPWorld. It took about 12 minute to update all these TAPs , which means about one minute per one update.

So the updating is very easy. If you would like to become a TAPWorld updater, please contact us.

No idea; the domain is still registered to Jani.

So either he's decided to pack up and sell it, or the hosting company has made some sort of mistake that's serving that page when you ask for tapworld.net.

Could it be some kind of april fool's joke? Remember Finland is about 2 hours ahead of UK, so maybe he changed the site at midnight....? :D

....or maybe he's got his new Beyonwiz, and skipped all his Toppy goods :?

As you might have noticed some UK TAPs has not been updated lately.

If you know TAP, application or patch that has not been updated, we would be very thankful if you would inform us about them. This way we would get TAPWorld back to up-to-date.

Thanks!
