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!

    (oh Heidi, will you cut it with the bribes? I'm sure Maz really needed that orange, raw silk knitted touque with matching thong and sports bra. I mean, as if she could get it on with a broken arm [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img] )

      Hmmm, who agreed to send me a certain Hannoverian mare in return for an orange, raw silk knit thong and athletic strap. Could his name possibly have been, oh, let me see, JAIR?!?!?!

      How many silk worms toiled harder than Diana Ross's hairdresser to spin the ten bolts of raw silk for the strap alone! Have you no compassion, no mercy, no feeling for the silk worms who laboured endlessly just so that you could be properly supported?

        Its obvious to everyone that you have a very intimate knowledge about me. For how else you could know that I required the XXXXXXXXXXL size? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img]

          I just ordered mine, but notice the post had been viewed over 800 times. Oh, well, I'll still love it when it arrives!


          • Original Poster

            Nope, we should still have lots left. At last count, there had been about 55 orders. Assuming not everyone was a HAT HOG and didn't order 10 hats, there should still be plenty left. And more hats are coming -- if you place an order, we'll make sure to get you a hat.

                I'm feeling so Sonny and Cher, so Steve and Edie, and a tad Tom and Nicole before the break-up; but mostly, I'm feeling like Fonzie and Pinky Trocadero.

                What most distinguishes Jair and I, though, from all of these famed couples is....COTH caps (!!), ordered for us by ETBW who cares most about her friends who live near the 2008 Olympic Games' equestrian venue, but otherwise overlooked by Erin.

                  Just because I was bright enough to call ahead and place an advance order for one of each for ME and (Hmmm, Mr. Wings or Winglet? - Winglet is annoying but Mr. Wings took it upon himself to incorrectly measure out MADDIE'S FEED! )

                  Following up with the Mom trick of silencing the pitiful, heart wrenching cries of Heidi and Jair by ordering another two caps on line (you know I was dying to use the "specially made for us by Erin" form).

                  Please, oh, please, Cap vendors, send me ALL four caps, I daren't disapoint those whose favors I am pandering and will be EXTREMELY unhappy to find myself explaining to Miss Maddie if I fail to appear properly adorned for her next photo opp!

                    Well, I figure that since dad gave me the Visa to register for the Chem SAT online, and that registration is taking FOREVER....maybe I'll just mosey on over and buy myself a cap...he did ask if I wanted one [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] Now for the tough fashion decisions...green or khaki?

                    heidi...if I send you a cap can I come watch the Olympics with ETBW? I promise to entertain the sumo-toddler and clean up the table after meals? I do my own laundry [and others' laundry when asked]? Please? Please please please? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                          I fell to their combined Canuck guilt trip sorrow. Now Grizzles is looking at me "Can I wear MY cap in the RV this weekend?"

                          Poor Grizzles, no cap for sweet doggy, no weekend trip in the RV. WHAT? GGRRRR!!!

                          That can't be my sweet Grizzles! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]

                            Though, let me do some mental math - in 2008, assuming we get the Olympics, Sumo will be 10, hopefully out of diapers, and thus should be a breeze. I will, of course, only reach my 28th birthday that year.

                            Shall have to buy a new mansion for the occassion with a wing per person; and a washing machine in Kellybird's. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                            Wings I do hope you drive on down for a visit before 2008, though.

                                I do clean tack...very well I might add. I spitshine field boots--even do the tongues under the laces and can get the scurf out of the split between upper and sole...I am quite all-purpose. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] And actually, I have spoken with the Winglet via instant messenger--shall I instruct him as to how to wash his own clothes? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

                                And unfortunately, yes, the Chem SAT. I'm only in 10th grade--I'm too young to die! This is what I get for taking honors and AP classes. Oh well, some college somewhere had better appreciate what I'm doing. Stanford, Stanford, are you listening?

                                heidi--might I possibly get a washer and 2 dryers in my wing of the castle...makes everything go sooo much quicker, and well, who likes horse hair in their [mashine washable] toques and/or thongs? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
                                <and you may want to readjust your math calculations...if you would turn 28 in ten years...well, let's just say you would've had your child before I get my driving permit. Just doing a little too much mental math here. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] >

                                  Oh yes, now that the order form is safely online, I can share the story of ETBW's deviousness... she's been taking lessons from those tricky Canadians, methinks.

                                  Bright little Ms. ETBW calls up the Chronicle yesterday, and asks for Gofer. Now, the real Gofer is Tricia's JRT, so sweet Theresa the receptionist was rightfully a bit confused. "He's not here today," she replied politely, probably wondering what kook was calling for a dog.

                                  So ETBW proceeded to try to wrest the cap information from Theresa, who, like a good secret agent, was able to feign ignorance and keep the hat info under her hat.

                                  (Okay, in reality, Theresa had no idea what ETBW was talking about... the hats hadn't arrived yet, and she didn't know they existed!)

                                  But being the nice lady that she is, Theresa dutifully took down ETBW's credit card number and shipping information, and promised to send a hat off as soon as they were unpacked.

                                  So, thanks to her quick thinking and investigative skills, Ms. ETBW was the very first orderer of a COTH Cap! For your award, you get... well, a COTH cap. Imagine that. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

                                  Oh! And did I mention she tried to bribe Gofer to have her hat sent first, and NOT to the Winglet! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_redface.gif[/img]

                                  Those Virginians sure are tricky...
