Board Rules

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.3. Keep conversations productive, on topic and civil.
Discussion and disagreement are inevitable and encouraged; personal insults, diatribes and sniping comments are unproductive and unacceptable. Whether a subject is light-hearted or serious, keep posts focused on the current topic and of general interest to other participants of that thread. Utilize the private message feature or personal email where appropriate to address side topics or personal issues not related to the topic at large.

4. No advertising in the discussion forums.classifieds site and through the purchase of banner ads. The tightly monitored Giveaways forum permits free listings of genuinely free horses and items available or wanted (on a limited basis). Items offered for trade are not allowed.

Advertising Policy Specifics
When in doubt of whether something you want to post constitutes advertising, please contact a moderator privately in advance for further clarification. Refer to the following points for general guidelines:

Board members may ask for suggestions on breeding stallion recommendations. Stallion owners may reply to such queries by suggesting their own stallions, only if their horse fits the specific criteria of the original poster. Excessive promotion of a stallion by its owner or related parties is not permitted and will be addressed at the discretion of the moderators.

Members may use the forums to ask for general recommendations of trainers, barns, shippers, farriers, etc., and other members may answer those requests by suggesting themselves or their company, if their services fulfill the specific criteria of the original post. Members may not solicit other members for business if it is not in response to a direct, genuine query.

While members may ask for general opinions and suggestions on equipment, trailers, trucks, etc., they may not list the specific attributes for which they are in the market, as such posts serve as wanted ads.

  • Can't Access the Off Topic Thread

    Help! I suddenly can't access Off Topic Thread. I logged in, as usual, picked up my notifications about new posts on the OT thread, but, when I tried to go there, got this message: "Sorry, you're not authorized to access this [or words to that effect]." Tried several times and got the same message. I am using the same system; don't use my phone for reading forums online.

    Then, when I tried to send a message to the Administrator, I got a message saying, "Admin is not receiving PMs." Okay, so how do I get help with this problem?

    I was able to log in yesterday/last night, so what's with this sudden change? Am I banned or something? And, if so, why?

      I figured out a back door workaround and posted there. But, would still like to know why I can't get there directly Mods.

      Thanks,

        Try it again but slowly, type your name and password and let the filters get around to reading the information, as long as it takes them.

        I found out a few times if I click fast, it doesn't go thru.

        Will PM the Moderator for you.

          For me this has meant that one of the posts that is in the notification has been removed.

          The thread is still there, just the ability to link to it from the notification about posts does not work.

          It has nothing to do (in my case) with the fact that the thread is in any specific forum.

            Thanks guys! Bluey, I can get fat fingered with the best of them, but multiple attempts at slow careful typing produced the same results. trubandloki, I figured out a back door and that's working, but, you're right, going thru the notifications doesn't.

            Oh well, I'm in and posting. It's very odd.

              Discussion about that behavior here, toward the end: https://www.chronofhorse.com/forum/f...view-this-page

              You just can't access the thread from that particular link, because it points to a post that doesn't exist anymore. You can get to the thread from the actual forum. Or from another notification generated by a non deleted post.

                  It sounds like the notification you received was for a post that was deleted (either as spam or removed by the user). Can you go to the forum home page and access the OT forum directly that way?

                  What is the username of the account you were trying to PM? This account is the one to use for PMs.

                  Thanks,
                  Mod 1
