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!

        Why do you like my username? It's just my first name and last initial. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] Not that I'm complaining, but it is rather boring and somewhat annoying being confused with the REAL Erin AKA Mother Superior and Chief Cat Herder ALL the time. Sigh. I wish sometimes I got more creative with my username, but now I'm used to this one.

        And Kellybird, if you'd actually come to the forums and talk to me once in awhile.... [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                    1. Your Favorite Thread of the Year

                    I'm torn between the COTH Charity horse show and the You're so Vain threads. Those songs (especially HITS Show California) still give me a giggle, and this year has been desperately in need of giggles.

                    2. Thread that has impacted you the most

                    It's not even a question, the 9/11 threads, although I suspect there is more than one BB'er that wishes I had never set foot on those threads [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

                    3. Thread that just wouldn't die

                    ODG, those funny black things that sit on people's heads. But for you old timers, isn't this a so much better choice than last year's obvious winner in this catagory?

                    4. Thread that you wish had never died

                    You're so Vain... but it hasn't yet!! I know there are more creative BB'ers out there!

                    5. Topic that has given you re-occuring nightmares

                    MJ... wasn't that what you like least about the internet?

                    6. Person who posts for no reason but to see thei name in lights.

                    Hmmm, withover 5000 posts, and second runner up to Wingsy in number of posts, I really can't cast aspersions on anyone else's motives, now can I?

                    7. Best username

                    She changed it, but I loved Off Course!!! Best current name is of course, Lord Helpus. I spent weeks seeing if I could find a worthy "copycat" name. Failed, obviously...

                    8. Most annoying username

                    As an old fart, I reserve the right to let ThIsStUfFDrIvEmEuPaWaLl

                    9. Most inspirational poster

                    Louise and Duffy (OK, Duffy is sweet, but Louise just writes the nicest stuff that even an old cynic like me has to appreciate).

                    10. Poster in most need of visiting a sanitarium

                    I'm sure the Chief Cat Herder deserves a visit, but our insurance only pays for one, so Moesha and his multiple personalities gets our vote [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                    11. Poster whose threads you look most forward to reading

                    Kachoo!! We are going to be buying her books one day, aren't we? Also, I really like reading Dianna and Chrissy's posts on the horse care forum. I always get something out of those posts.

                    12. Poster who you want to come back as in your enxt life

                    Alan Greenspan

                    13. Poster who you most want to meet in person

                    Sorry, this can't be just one, right? The NY clique, 'specially AHC, SoEasy, Louise, Erin, Portia, Gofer (and Gofer's baby!), Lily, Becca, Merry & Beezer (this has to be done as a pair, right?), Jair, Heidi, Canter, Finzean, JB, and many more I am blanking out on (blame it on a long day at a horse show, followed up by wine).

                    14. Clique that you most want to be a member of

                    I think I have honorary status in the VA clique, but I haven't felt that warm fuzzy invitation from the Canadians yet... [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                    15. Poster whose horse you would jump in front of a train for

                    Chef's Jade!! I'd even sacrifice my long held TB principles for this one. But other than that, I still think Robbie is pretty darn special (and so does he [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img] )

                    16. Poster that always puts you in a good mood

                    There are a few, but Kachoo and VT always manage to put a grin on my face, even when I am down. And ErinB is developing quite a sense of humor... (honey chile, you should be worried when DMK thinks you have a good sense of humor - this is not a sign of mental stability!)

                    17. Most Valuable Friend/s that you have gained as a result of this BB.

                    VT, Louise, SoEasy, Duffy, Hattie, Havaklu, Becca, Jair, AHC, Jeb, Portia, all the VA clique (yes, you, R&R), and so many more... You all have been great friends during a rather rough year.

                    18. Most memorable event from the BB this year

                    September 11th... We were at work and could not find a TV, and the internet news services were overloaded. Between this BB and some very heartfelt conversations with AHC, our office knew what was happening almost real time [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

                    19. Poster who you want to "vote off the island

                    Oh it would be terribly rude to do so, but like most, I'm sure I could find a few to hit the boat early...

                    20. Thing you would change most about the BB

                    I like that truth serum idea...

                    21. What you like best about the BB

                    As out of control as it gets sometimes, you can't get this open an exchage of ideas in a face to face discussion. I also like the instant research that goes into some of the questions.

                    22. Has any - one/thing/topic - changed the way you live?

                    That's a tough one... I've changed the way I ride (presumably for the better), the way I take care of my horses, all due to various excellent suggestions on this BB, but my life hasn't changed... unless you count a lot more hours online? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                    23. In general - how was 2001 for you?

                    Like Lily, I can't wait for 2002 to boot 2001 in the ass. I started out this year and ended it by putting down two of my dear horses, and had September 11, to put the sorrows of my life into perspective. We all deserve better than that. What a sad not to end this on... Whatever else has happened this year, I know that I have lots of dear friends that are there for me. That is something special, isn't it?

                          I just want to say that the answer to every question here has SOMETHING to do with the Helmet Threads! LoL

                          Don't you just love it when you try to talk to your school friends about horses and they just have this completely lost look on their face...and then they say..."So have you ever jumped ten feet?"

                                    ErinB-- My dear, don't take my nomination as an insult, as there lies no doubt in my mind that your name will be in lights for the rest of your life.

                                    MsRid-- Perhaps I see your ridiculousness (is that a word??) in your hatred of the postal service. Or in the banishment of people for fun. Now don't get me wrong, I love it!! But sometimes strikes me as what could be ridiculous.

                                      19. Poster who you want to "vote off the island - MJ's posts used to drive me nuts, but she already got voted off, so does that count?
                                      20. Thing you would change most about the BB - Please please please can the subjects of threads have enough information so that we can decide whether to read it or not? Instead of a subject called "Looking for..." How about "Looking for old horse named Mr.Ed" or whatever it is?? If I don't know Mr.Ed, I won't have to bother to open the thread!!! Sorry, pet peeve!!!

                                      23. In general - how was 2001 for you? Maaaaahhhhrrrvelous!!!! It's been a great year, despite some rough bumps.
