Forum rules and no-advertising policy

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

1. You’re responsible for what you say.
As outlined in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, The Chronicle of the Horse and its affiliates, as well Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd., the developers of vBulletin, are not legally responsible for statements made in the forums.

This is a public forum viewed by a wide spectrum of people, so please be mindful of what you say and who might be reading it—details of personal disputes are likely better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts that violate these rules. Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting, but administrators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts upon request.

Outright inflammatory, vulgar, harassing, malicious or otherwise inappropriate statements and criminal charges unsubstantiated by a reputable news source or legal documentation will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.
The forums are a wonderful source of information and support for members of the horse community. While it’s understandably tempting to share information or search for input on other topics upon which members might have a similar level of knowledge, members must maintain the focus on horses.

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.
Posts in the discussion forums directly or indirectly advertising horses, jobs, items or services for sale or wanted will be removed at the discretion of the moderators. Use of the private messaging feature or email addresses obtained through users’ profiles for unsolicited advertising is not permitted.

Company representatives may participate in discussions and answer questions about their products or services, or suggest their products on recent threads if they fulfill the criteria of a query. False "testimonials" provided by company affiliates posing as general consumers are not appropriate, and self-promotion of sales, ad campaigns, etc. through the discussion forums is not allowed.

Paid advertising is available on our 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:

Horses – Only general discussion about the buying, leasing, selling and pricing of horses is permitted. If the post contains, or links to, the type of specific information typically found in a sales or wanted ad, and it’s related to a horse for sale, regardless of who’s selling it, it doesn’t belong in the discussion forums.

Stallions – 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.

Services – 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.

Products – 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.

Event Announcements – Members may post one notification of an upcoming event that may be of interest to fellow members, if the original poster does not benefit financially from the event. Such threads may not be “bumped” excessively. Premium members may post their own notices in the Event Announcements forum.

Charities/Rescues – Announcements for charitable or fundraising events can only be made for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. Special exceptions may be made, at the moderators’ discretion and direction, for board-related events or fundraising activities in extraordinary circumstances.

Occasional posts regarding horses available for adoption through IRS-registered horse rescue or placement programs are permitted in the appropriate forums, but these threads may be limited at the discretion of the moderators. Individuals may not advertise or make announcements for horses in need of rescue, placement or adoption unless the horse is available through a recognized rescue or placement agency or government-run entity or the thread fits the criteria for and is located in the Giveaways forum.

5. Do not post copyrighted photographs unless you have purchased that photo and have permission to do so.

6. Respect other members.
As members are often passionate about their beliefs and intentions can easily be misinterpreted in this type of environment, try to explore or resolve the inevitable disagreements that arise in the course of threads calmly and rationally.

If you see a post that you feel violates the rules of the board, please click the “alert” button (exclamation point inside of a triangle) in the bottom left corner of the post, which will alert ONLY the moderators to the post in question. They will then take whatever action, or no action, as deemed appropriate for the situation at their discretion. Do not air grievances regarding other posters or the moderators in the discussion forums.

Please be advised that adding another user to your “Ignore” list via your User Control Panel can be a useful tactic, which blocks posts and private messages by members whose commentary you’d rather avoid reading.

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.

8. We reserve the right to enforce and amend the rules.
The moderators may delete, edit, move or close any post or thread at any time, or refrain from doing any of the foregoing, in their discretion, and may suspend or revoke a user’s membership privileges at any time to maintain adherence to the rules and the general spirit of the forum. These rules may be amended at any time to address the current needs of the board.

Please see our full Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for more information.

Thanks for being a part of the COTH forums!

  • Cactuskate memorial ad in COTH info... the quick version!

    So the information doesn't get buried on the other threads, I'm reposting Heidi's info here:

    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by Heidi:
    Serendipity, I bet you could contest me easily for Uber-goddess status. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] Though, you aren't Canadian, or a Swiss goat herder, and I do believe they're pre-requisites. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img]

    Okay, administratively, please note:

    -As Erin pointed out in her email, the ad will make Kathy's BB family feel good but a donation to a charity may help someone else to feel good.

    To that end, I'd like to propose that we book a half page 2-colour ad ($862) and donate the balance of what's collected to a charity of Kathy's family's choice or an equine rescue.

    -Cheques should be made out personally to Erin (for the Americans) and to me (Canadians) so that we can cut exact amount cheques for the ad space and a charity. Whatever I collect from the Americans will be converted to a USD money order for either COTH and/or a charity. Erin will cut similar cheques.

    -Americans, please email Erin for her mailing address:
    erin@chronofhorse.com

    -Canadians, please email me for my address and 'real name' ( [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] ) :
    heidi278@rogers.com

    Lisamarie, could you email me also so that we can coordinate the logistics - i.e. booking of ad space, etc.

    Delighted, I'd bet you that Kathy's husband or family would love a drawing of the photo posted of Kathy in the showring.

    I am so wonderfully happy and proud to be a member of this BB family.

            Coreene, I was on the words end of the COTH machine, remember? As far as I'm concerned, the ads are just things that take space away from the articles. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

            I dunno, but I will leave it up to the design wizards here to compose something lovely. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

            BTW, in the hour I was away from my desk for lunch, I got about 20 emails... yikes! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                    Tomorrow isn't a bad day yet.

                    I am trying to learn a lesson from Kate, (paraphrasing here) we are all born dying, I hope to be thankful for every day I am able to be up and around to enjoy my passions.

                        Think of the time you spend helping out at your local clique organized volunteer day!

                        Keep Cactuskate and "our" Patriot in your mind and enjoy the feeling of having made a difference. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

                          I think a memorial is a great idea, and not to poo-poo the original person's idea, but IMHO an ad in a paper is a short-lived thing.

                          $862 is a lot - it could go a lot further than that at say a horse rescue place, or a cancer charity.

                            And if you email me and don't get a reply back in a few hours, please send another note. I get a lot of email on a daily basis, and when switching back and forth between my home and work computers, things can sometimes get overlooked.

                                  Whoever ends up actually placing the ad just need to talk to Belinda at the Chron. Im sure she could arrange that.

                                    Zim, I catch your drift.....the extra money will be going to a Cactuskate charity(s). I also think the ad should include some "please donate to her charities" type of copy, with information on how to do that. What do y'all think of that???

                                      I'll reiterate what I said on another thread... don't worry about the size of any contribution you decide to make. You can just send a $5 bill, if you like. The point is that it's a group effort to remember a treasured friend that touched a lot of us. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

                                      Also, I am sure we will have some money left over to send to a charity (either one Kathy chose, or we'll have a BB vote and decide on one). If you would rather send a contribution entirely to the charity, that's just fine.

                                      You can send a check to me earmarked for the charitable effort only (or just email me and tell me you'd prefer your donation to go that), or just wait til we decide on a charity and send a check directly in Kathy's name.

                                        I have to disagree. I think an ad with that picture of Cactuskate wearing her oxygen and sitting on her horse might be an inspiration to lots of people who read the Chronicle but aren't on this BB. I love that idea. It's like sending little ripples of hope out into the world.
