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.

What's the deal with "unapproved" posts?

    I've found the moderators to be very speedy about approving if you just send a PM to Moderator 1 with a "please let my message out of jail" note. Posting here about it doesn't get the same response. Highly recommend the PM route if you want your message approved quickly.

    OneGrayPony I belong to a Pinball forum that has a "verified poster" thing and think it's kinda cool. Old threads can only be bumped by verified posters, which is brilliant (can you imagine how that would cut down on our spam?!) No clue if it's a possibility with our software. Here's the page for it, though: https://pinside.com/pinball/my-pinside/verification Neat, huh?

      It can be bypassed easily, but we don't want spammers to know how.
      I just didn't think wiki would trigger them, but it did.

        Well clearly, but once you get in jail, it's hard to get out. This last post had no links in it or anything. Maybe I just seem spammy LOL.

        • I'm battling the unapproved posts again this week. Was doing well but now back to unapproved. No links in my posts, just regular posts. I am so over this.

          • New development, now I post, the page refreshes and the post disappears, no box that says unapproved, nothing.

              • Daily issue for me now. I'm so fed up with it.

                • Happening daily now, approved then disapproved, incredibly frustrating that they can't fix it a bit more permanently.

                  • Hmmm...I just got the unapproved message as well. Never happened before.
                    lets see if this one goes through...

                    • Testing again, been unapproved on and off all week

                      • DawnJL
                        @js

                        Yours are the two accounts who have consistently had issues with posts being sucked into the approval queue, regardless of content. DawnJL's are consistently sent there, js's seem to go through periods where it's fine and periods where all posts are quarantined.

                        Not counting those who have the occasional posts caught up by the spam filters, is there anyone else who this ALWAYS happens to, or will randomly but fairly regularly have this problem, like the two members named above?

                        I've sent multiple notes to the developers about the issue, and apparently it had been marked as "resolved" when they thought they'd solved it, but the problem has persisted and they're going to re-examine. I don't want to miss any accounts for which this is a regular occurrence.

                        Thanks, and our apologies to you two for the inexplicable headache!!

                        • If the techs have worked on the software for the program that runs the board then they have done something that is making me be unapproved just about daily now.

                              Send Mod 1 a PM. The vortex does not send Mod 1 notifications when things are stuck in it.

                                Thanks - I'll have to find Mod 1. The vortex....it is strong.

                                        • I guess my problem is now permenant, I can't post anything. All I can do is report it and they add my posts after the fact. This is well beyond frustrating.
