    I never had any issues there, but haven't posted in the last 4-5 years. I guess something must have changed in the interim, but I always found it a very helpful place and TBH I felt the quality of *dressage* advice was better there than here.

    Fitting that even its demise was dramatic.

    WOW. What crap. THIS is why I enjoyed that board so much more than THIS one full of arrogant types. I received MANY more nasty comments here than there; in fact, I once boycotted this board for a while due to the nastyness

    oh dear and yet you are posting here something that would never be allowed on that site regarding another board if the situation were reversed,

    nice..

    I will miss the UDBB. But honestly, I don't know how it lasted this long. The first catfight, I would have said to myself "Nobody needs this crap" and shut it down. And that was before the political forum.
    I admire people that can stand to host discussionboards and I read many obsessively.

    I didn't expect this at all. I hope there's some overlap because I made some excellent connections there -got some great advice from Gailbyrd just yesterday. Also, we were planning a Gettysburg horse camping trip for May 17 and I didn't keep anyone's contact information. Hopefully between here and their facebook page we can keep in touch.

    Seemed to be used mainly by weekend dressage wannabes.

    Why thank you. I'll where that as a badge of honor


    I was actually a member before it became the UDBB, before the 2000 reboot.

    Yup I was a member since the USDF transition to the farm.

    I lost control of my screen name, but over the years the fun sort of dwindled. I enjoyed the general forum and participated there and in the vet forum. Training, not so much.

    it was like here on off topic day. Something for everyone and they could go to ( or ignor) whatever room they wish.

    I think it has something to do with your basic "disagree without being disagreeable" thing. I'm really sick of the whole "I'm right and you're stupid" ideology. It has become so prevalent, lately. JMHO

    Looks like the FB page is going strong. I predict the fans of UDBB will survive just fine.

    I'll miss the UDBB as well. I was mostly a lurker (I lurk here on COTH 90% of the time too!), but learned a lot. I also enjoyed following a number of people's journey both equine and personal. Hopefully they feel comfortable coming to COTH to share updates.

    While F.B. is nice, it's just not the same!

    RIP UDBB

    I think I set some kind of a record by being made a moderator one day and banned the next.

    I saw a post from Mark this morning on FB. He sounded really disspirited. I hope he's OK.

    I haven't posted over there in a while. I did enjoy the forums on occasion but lately I have been so busy I have much more limited time to "play." I am sorry to see it die.

    Mark's flare for the dramatic/melodramatic set the tone for the board. I lurked and occasionally posted mostly for the entertainment/train wreck factor that was the UDBB. From a business perspective (he did after all have people willing to pay for the drivel on that board) it was childish and unprofessional to pull the plug without warning. Some of the minions have pulled together on Facebook to regroup, mourn, reminisce about the glory days of the UDBB. I think FB will be a better outlet especially for those that liked to post lots of pictures and training journals etc.
