Help! Anyone else having issues with Tapatalk?

I know some of you use Tapatalk to post text and pics so Iím looking for assistance with their app. It used to work for me, but now itís saying my username is too short (been the same for years) and I cannot find the draft I saved...anywhere.
Iím posting a pic just to see if it works...any help would be appreciated.

Very frustrated,
Deb

Well it worked this time. Surprised....but still cannot find the draft I spent quite a lot of time creating. Hoping someone familiar with this app can help. Thanks!

I just typed something ... And exited and saved it as a draft....
It gave me the option to insert it the first time I clicked in to reply again....
I chose start new...
Exited.
Then tried again and the option wasn't there.
So it appears it only saves a draft in the "clipboard" as a 1 time thing.

Interesting, as I received som weird messages and alerts from them (like the username Iíve had for years, debFJVT, needed to be longer than 3 letters?? Huh?). I sent them a message asking for help yesterday, and to my surprise I got an email back! They described exactly what @Winterpeg found, that a one time message offering to use the saved draft would appear. Unfortunately I was creating the above post so clicked No and havenít found a way to get it back

Re: Help! Anyone else having issues with Tapatalk?

What Iím seeing almost every time is two sets of photos back to back when you only post one set.

Iíve lost drafts too.

Re: Help! Anyone else having issues with Tapatalk?

I struggle with Tapatalk full stop...can only really get to subscriptions not the general forum. My advice for any app or web page is write your draft in Notes or Text edit or similar (or even on an email to yourself)and then copy and paste...they you have it saved on your device to, upload again when it fails,

Thatís what I usually do because I often post a story in more than one place.
