    What everyone else has said. Plus, I also was thinking I already have accounts with eBay, Etsy, and Amazon. I don't want to sign up with yet another site/app, especially one that redirects me away from the forum.

    As I said, it is not something I purposefully picked. But in reading responses I am a little surprised that it being an app is what annoys most. I have a smart phone and it's loaded with all kinds of app's, practical things, games, entertainment etc. I guess I'm desensitized to apps! I wouldn't mind using it so I voted for it, am the only one so far We can see what the options are for reverting. Though we may be stuck with it in the upgrade...

    People are annoyed because they would have to register to a third party to use this forum, it doesn't matter if it is "just an app".

    Personally I prefer to keep my browsers, tablets and smartphones free of apps that aren't strictly necessary. It keeps it more tidy, doesn't affect the performance negatively and it is easier to maintain fewer apps due to security threats.

    Apps I really don't need, but HAVE to install and register for in a forum where I'm already a registered member is truly annoying.


    In general, if I want to install an app I prefer to do it because I want it, not because I HAVE to do it in order to post a new thread in the market section in a forum I've used for years.



    According to various other forums it IS possible to uninstall panjo. We are not the first ones to upgrade to this version who question it.

    I do not have an agenda to jam panjo down anyone's throat. As I've said, twice now, it appeared in the upgrade, I did not know/pick it. You and I have different opinions about applications. However, I tend to make changes according to what the community wants, not what suits me personally. Hence the poll and discussion.

    No problem, Salome.

    From what I would know, the Panjo app could be wonderful to use.
    But I haven't tried it for the reasons mentioned above.

    I've just happily clicked "like" on most of the posts above since they pretty well outline why the whole thing creeps me out. Of course, my computer creep threshold is pretty low: I keep a small piece of paper over my camera eye so no one can peek at me without my knowledge. You would not believe the things I've learned about cyber-stalking since going to work with the sheriff's office.

    Thanks entirely to the work of Arun, panjo has been deactivated folks. We are back to the good old forum market place. Got something to sell? Make a thread, the end.
