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!

  • Time to order Chronicle caps!

    READ THIS WHOLE POST BEFORE ORDERING A HAT!

    We have 150 hats available in this first batch. Please be considerate of your fellow BBers who aren't online all day, and just order one hat to start with. We have more hats on the way, and since shipping is included, it won't cost any more to place two orders.

    I have not seen the hats, and I don't know what they look like. If you want to see a picture before you order, don't order yet. We'll have pictures, and more hats, soon.

    If you are outside the U.S.... I'm sorry, but I'm going to suggest that you not order a hat right away. I was not able to get a definitive answer yesterday about shipping costs to Canada and overseas, and the Chronicle doesn't want to take your order without being able to give you an accurate total cost.

    If you Canadians/foreigners are desperate for a hat right away, I'd suggest calling the office and speaking to Theresa, the receptionist, who can probably work something out for you. (Call 540-687-6341.) You can also take your chances and fill out the online form -- I'm sure the shipping cost will be reasonable, but I stress again that we have not decided what it will be.

    Again, here are your hat choices:

    A) A stonewashed hunter green hat with a tan suede bill for those who enjoy a two-tone look.

    B) A solid-colored khaki hat of cotton twill, for those who want a traditional, cooler summer hat.

    The Chronicle logo is embroidered on the front. The green hats have tan embroidery, and the khaki hats have green embroidery, from what I understand.

    Cost is $15 apiece, and shipping is included within the U.S.

    And now, without further ado, is the URL to order your hats [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    https://www.securehosting.com/Secure...ushatform.html

    Enjoy, and please say a big THANK YOU to the Chronicle and to Gofer for doing this. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    If you encounter any problems with the form, let me know. You should receive a confirmation email when your order has been placed.

                      Poor havaklu is stuck behind a firewall...

                      If that happens to anyone else, you can call the Chronicle directly at 540-687-6341, or fax an order to 540-687-3937. Address faxes to Gloria Broy. If you call, Theresa the receptionist can probably help you.

                                Once again we Canadians are persecuted dammit!

                                Not only must we suffer through an exchange rate which prices the caps at $22 CDN, we now must sit and wait idly while the American BBers hog all the hats. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_mad.gif[/img]

                                    yep! As long as i get it before then I'll be wearing it...can't wait till next weekend, should be fun. I am carrying one of the flags in the opening ceremonies and was practicing last night...needless to say it was quite interesting. Sad thing was the three year w,t,c with the flag no problem but the eighteen yr old thought it would kill her...so now who do i take...the old "steady" mount or the one who could care less about the flag but is guarenteed to throw a few(or more) rodeo bucks for the hell of it? i'll see you there!

                                      I'm sorry Heidi, I really tried to get the info! Gofer bought a house yesterday and is moving today, so she's rightfully a bit distracted.

                                      We'll get the information just as soon as possible, I promise. Perhaps we can line the hats with flannel to assuage the wounded Canadian pride? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]
