    For a few months now, VBResults / TMApps has convinced Howie to use his desktop notifications addons plugin that he's been promoting all over the place, in place of the original native app that he was selling a year or so ago, as the answer to all forum admins' questions about the availability of a mobile app for their web sites.

    FFS, I don't even know what the hell this thing is anymore because it's been through about 6 different name changes.

    Anyway, it appears anybody on TAZ that uses this push notification of this add-on to get updates on threads, or other alerts, gets redirected to an ad on the tma.li ad network, which is managed by shady and shitty vBulletin mod developer "vbresults".

    So vBresults gets paid for anybody using this "feature" on TAZ? Lol, is that right? Does Howie even know this? I doubt it.

    Also, at least on mobile, TheAdminZone.com favicon is replaced with the vBresults' shitty tma.li favicon, which even makes it more confusing for anybody that has TAZ bookmarked. Jesus. Maybe if you have TAZ bookmarked, you deserve that I guess.

    Of course, Howie isn't around to answer any questions, but to anybody not in the know on how stupid things are on TAZ, somebody would think vBresults was managing TAZ now.

    A new mobile app!

    Everything is so half assed with this guy, ffs.

    This is the "sample" link that will show an ad to anybody trying to visit TAZ to see an alert.

  3. He's changed the name of his mobile app about 20 times on XenForo forum and even got his hand slapped last time he did it by Chris D because he renamed it some spammy name the last time.

    WTF does he keep changing the name for anyway?
     
  4. vbresults aka Steven Wade, LancerForHire, is a fucking scam artist, stay far away from anything he is involved in.

  5. Is TAZ still a thing?

  6. Oh it's "LancerForHire" is it? Brings back some, ahem, interesting memories.

    All makes sense now.

    All the more reason to stay away from TAZ, as I have done for many a long month now.

  7. I didn't know he was also known as Steven Wade and LancerForHire. That tells a different story about him then, those two have a bad history from vBulletin of being con men.
     
  8. Ahh yes, LancerForHire, vBresults, TMA, or what ever he calls himself has scammed plenty of vB users, as well as threatened to sue vB for people leaving negative reviews about him and his scamming ways. Here is proof it is the same frigging joker, Moneybookers Integration [Paid] [Deleted]

    He should not be allowed to advertise any addons on any official site, he is just a con man.
     
  9. Seems he has TAZ completely fooled then. Why am I entirely unsurprised?

  10. Well one look at the chain of command on there would tell you that no one really cares about protecting users, only concerned with post counts and activity. The frigging site owner goes into hiding when a server, security issue or a concern with vBturds addon is questioned.

  11. I find it amusing you all go out your way attacking this TMA guy when you welcomed that XF scammer HOOD on this forum who ripped people off for $1000's dollars and has not even attempted to pay a single penny back to people since on XenForo.

    Talk about double standards with you lot.....

  14. Wong dumdum! It's not a bookmark list. It's just a few icons of sires that hav been visited. Looks like it is based on browsing history

  16. TAZ's favinon logo is now an unreadable dollup of blue ink.
