The log in thing must have been before my time. I do remember like a change where you had an "old" and " new" maybe that's it.

I still can't log in on my phone or really read much, but that's not huge issue.

I am a member of another forum. Its centered around my school. Here in the south that's a big deal. There are people all around the country but mostly this area. And a lot of times if someone is missing for a while somebody else knows them in real life.

I don't remember the forum being of a different format, with different outlay of active threads. H mn m . .

I don't subscribe to any threads anymore, but just do a general 'quick links' todays posts check, and see what is being added to.


I admire folks who can remember long and involved threads, with many life stories, that go on for months, years. I'm afraid I have the bad habit of skipping around, shallowly.

I would think if you were a mod at the time then you were aware the change was happening and if it messed with you you would have had a back door to get in through. I had to give up on keeping up on the emails. It was too much when I would get an email for every thread I had replied too. I really should have explored more about what parameters we could set and what not.



For me it is not distance. I have moved around so much that I have a long trail of friends from all over. Some I see, some I don't - just correspond. I have been slower to develop friendships here that I did at the other forum I spent quite a bit of time participating. I made life long friends there. It usually was started through pm and then went to emails and phone calls. The unofficial meet up place for me seems to be Disney in Florida. I can't count the number of people I have run into there from forums or other walks of life.



I think the journals go a long way to befriend someone.

Some horse people change their horse, they change their tack and discipline, they change their instructor; they never change themselves.

If it wasn't for the e-mails I get now, I'd have to go thru my "User CP" to my page, to my subscriptions, every time I wanted to post. Its annoying.

The "Photo of the month" thread used to be pinned to the main page too. It was on the top of every thread on the header part. Lots of folks posted pictures and liked or voted on entries! Now it is just one or two maybe, and I never even search them out.

I don't know if my screen looks different than others on here, but on mine all the "active" threads are to the right of my main screen. They are threads from any section. Even finding the sections is hard. Used to just be a click on the link on the main screen.

The big change caused everyone to have to click on some sort of timed thing, like the "I'm not a robot" boxes on some other sites. But this one the member had to enter digits, and it would time out so quickly! I had to do it several times over several days to get in. Can't do it on my android phone at all. The little screen is at the bottom and I can't scroll down to it. So on my phone I can read stuff, but can't see many pictures except from people like @phantomhorse13 who put pictures in a different way.

I really miss Smrobs. I think she quit horse training for the public and seemed to drop off the forum about the same time.

Wow I just checked to see if that crash in 2015 was before my time. Nope I have been here a little over 6 years. Wow.

And I just stumbled onto the forum by chance.

Thank you. I can't remember now what I typed in to search for , race related I'm sure. This came up and I started to click around. Thought hey this is cool so kept coming back. Then made an account to reply to someone about something I can't remember and that was it.

Screen differences can be attributed to what version you view (there being Classic and several others) I'm old fashioned and use the old Classic view. And, what internet browser you use can influence how the home page is laid out, too.


I now see the forum exactly as you all do, no more backdoors for me.
