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!

    • Found out today that it is more than twice the size of before, and that removing it will be a bit of a nightmare because they will have a hard time doing it and not ruining his sight or his facial muscles. So he is going to have extra tests this coming week on the peripheral vision (this is the first thing that is screwed up), and another blood test because the Cushings part in people makes diabetes come on much faster than in horses.

      He is now so PO-ed about it that he is going to Holland in a few weeks to see his family, '"Just in case." And that is damn scary.

          I'm so happy that the prayers and curb chains have done their job!

          I hope Coreene's Papa continues to feel better.

          • (((((((hugs)))))))) to your dad.
            I remember when my dad had cancer in one eye, had it removed, and started having major problems with the other eye. He immediately went on a cruise, then flew to Latvia to see his family, and then went to Disneyworld, "just in case". You know what? His vision in that other eye ended up just fine, and I have confidence that your Dad is in the same type of situation. But geez, it sucks to think about it.
            I will say big prayers for your dad.....but I am confident he will come through just fine, he looks very strong.
            love and hugs,
            Linda

            • Your niece, Maddy, is the biggest chestnut klutz in the world and yet she jumped around World Cups this year within a sneeze (literally!) of being clean. (Although I think she is your aunt, not your niece). Your mom is going to find careful, committed surgeons who are going to do a wonderful job and do it soon, and your grandfather is going to have a most excellent trip to the lowlands and then carry on as the prins of California. Your job is to stay focused, think positive thoughts, and for gods sake keep all four feet on the ground at the mounting block! Go Oranje!

              • Oh Coreene, sorry for the sudden reversal of news! I understand, though, what the docs are saying: sometimes the "cure" is as fraught with problems as the "disease".

                Having dealt with facial muscle and nerve damage myself, I know how demoralizing it can be, if indeed he is forced to confront that. But he sounds like he has great inner strength and resolve, and a loving family who'll support him, so I'm sure he'll get through this. Besides, he has ALL OF US jingling away for him!

                Now excuse me. It's a lovely day and Willem and I are going to go roll in the mud together...

                • And if I say that often enough, even I start to believe it.

                  Were it me, I'd just want the damn thing out - and today rather than tomorrow. But since this is one of the rare times that we have no insight into what is going on in my dad's head (well, aside from the rude tumor), so he keeps blowing it off like no big deal 99% of the time and we just have to follow his lead, at least in front of him.

                    I'm with you, I'd want it OUT too.

                    You know, you are right....if your dad had any feelings of urgency, *then* you can worry. Deep down, we "know" if something is terribly wrong with our bodies, and if he's mostly blowing it off, then it must not be too awful. Gotta trust those gut feelings.
                    Be strong, believe in your dad and his gut feelings, and know that we are all here for you and will be jingling and praying for your dad.
                    We loff you!!!!

                            So sorry Coreene, this is not what we have been jingling for. But we will keep on jangling and jingling. Don't you get down from all of this. He needs your strength too..Plus remember, they have to tell you the worse that can happen to cover themselves...

                                  Coreene, I am jingling my bright, shiny, aurigan curb chain extra for your dad.

                                  His picture depicts an intelligent man full of life, and I think his plans to go on the trip are great. I am sure you are angry that this is happening and you feel helpless, but your posts show what great respect and love you have for your father. My mom died when I was 12 and my dad died when I was a new mother of 24 (he never saw his grandson) and gosh, I just want to say give your folks a special hug because they are precious precious precious.

                                  I wish you all the best, give your dad a hug from Kentucky. Let him go on his trip and then you all can have a good time going over pics after his surgery, which will be wildly successful.

                                  Sorry to ramble, I just feel a little emotional tonight I guess...

                                  Oh, tell Willem not to worry too much. The doctors know what they are doing. Just need to trust them... (it's hard, I know.)
