As a participant on this forum, it is your responsibility to know and follow our rules. Please read this message in its entirety.

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.

6. Respect other members.7. We have the right to reproduce statements made in the forums.
The Chronicle of the Horse may copy, quote, link to or otherwise reproduce posts, or portions of posts, in print or online for advertising or editorial purposes, if attributed to their original authors, and by posting in this forum, you hereby grant to The Chronicle of the Horse a perpetual, non-exclusive license under copyright and other rights, to do so.

  • Apparently block DOES work.

    I haven't determined how, but a few individuals' posts are no longer visible to me. I cannot, however, recreate that function and am having a hard time even recalling if/how I did it. Which leads me to believe that perhaps the moderators can block certain participants from seeing each other's activities? Which would be delicious.

    If by some chance the function has been restored for public use, and someone can explain to me how to find it again, can you please explain?

    TIA.

    It has not.

    The problem is buried deep in the vBulletin code and it's unlikely to be fixed anytime soon.

    We've had multiple threads on this. One is stickied to the top of this forum. Another is six threads down in this forum.

      I"m seeing quotes from people who's original posts no longer exist on threads.
      Explain that.

        As I am not a vBulletin developer or admin on this board, I cannot. But I am capable of looking at the trouble tickets and understanding that block doesn't function. I am also capable of understanding that block NEVER worked by just making a poster disappear--it still showed a place for the post with a "you have blocked this poster" indicator.

        You should probably provide screenshots so the moderators can investigate the bug you've discovered.


        Or, simpler explanation, it sounds like the poster deleted their post but it still exists in quotes. Not an infrequent occurrence. All posts can be deleted, except for the initial post that starts a thread. You could duplicate that by deleting your post above that I have quoted here.

          All posts from this user are gone. The user no longer exists, after I utilized the advanced search function, searching with specifically their name.
          All history of this poster have disappeared, going back --IIRC-- 8+ years.

          There's nothing to screen shot. They are invisible to me.

          ETA: There are posts from users I had put on 'ignore' prior to the switch to the new platform that also appear in quotes from others, but they essentially have disappeared entirely from my view. Prior to the switch "you have blocked this poster" was something I saw. Presently, it doesn't even appear that they exist, unless quoted by someone else. Which I've mentioned 3x now.

          I'm sorry you're 'incapable of understanding' that.

            And yet you say you can see their posts in quote, so there IS something to screenshot. So post that or PM moderator 1, if you don't want to share publicly.

            What you're describing is a bug, not a feature. It's not ignore and it's probably not repeatable.

            Oh, just had to be sure to quote your super snarky addition here. Lovely, sansena. Just lovely.

              [edit] anyone can delete their own posts, sans original posts, and that has happened on a number of threads recently, ie posts were made and quoted, then posts were deleted but quotes remain.

                  Sansena We still see posts by the user that you referenced in your PM, and can't duplicate the effect by adding the account to an ignore list. If you PM a link to the thread in which you saw this occur, I can see if the user deleted her posts.

                  Let's all tone down the attitude when addressing each other. We're closing the thread and can continue via PM if the OP would like.
