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.

      Back to the topic at hand....

      Moe Moe - I can't keep Paul waiting all day (although I loved being his model on Regis and Kelly this morning when he was talking about what is in for spring do's)...Is it going to be natural or skank??!! The man is charging by the minute...

      There are some in the cast, i.e. SIMON, that are going to be difficult to make look good. I think I know of a good rug maker that can help him out though.


      • #83
        VtRider, I beg to differ. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img] Simon needs to do no more than show up to look good for his part! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]


        • #84
          Oh! Oh!! <waving hand> I'll be Cassandra!! I would LOVE to be a local princess and actually HAVE other outfits to change into!!!

          And I promise I will predict NO doom and gloom!

          Damn!! I see that slut R&R stole the part from me by offering a sister/brother act. And a Catherine the Great tableau!!!!!

          Moesha, your people need to contact my people about this horrible slight to a performer of my stature!


          • Original Poster

            VT I have no idea what to do about that I think we need to re-evaluate our costume and make up department, I will see which candidates are most qualified and post shortly!

            Twister, my dear Barbara will cower with this new role we have created just for you....it is the Primo Divarama role of a career!!!

            Everythingbutwings, have the Tiffany's and Cartier reps. Stopped in yet to meet with you? You will have to pick the jewlery yuo want, no budget so have fun! they want to get your input on a "design" theme before the costume and design people overrun you with ideas! Remember you get to keep a few items so choose wisely!!!

            Bumpkin, Jair wants to conferenc with you on the "menu" theme of the inn? I say Manor Tavern, he says Old Anglers?

            Slugger, Fergi is willing to fly to Wellington during a WW infomercial to give you some gowns and capes that she no longer need! I told her we would only pay for "good" quality, no wine stained robes! I don;t care how authentic!! and you better call W DeBeers in to look at the Tiaras she brings we know how she can be!

            RB, the ponies from Europe have passed the inspection and are on their way to the farm in Greenwich, we need to get the Beval and Hermes people out to measure you.

            K-Spade, JAX, and Steve, we will let you pick the school uniforms.

            R&R we need to do a portfolio shot. Jair will handle that?

            Jair is busy people he is on location with hedi filming the scene where she rescues the polar bears with her trapez skills, so please bear with me.

            VtRider, We need a real crabbing boat for the triplets, and I was thinking Apps for their horses?

              Enter the director:Jair enters the room dressed to the nines in his tailored Armani morning suit and Versace sunglasses, latte in hand. He is so smooth, he glides when he walks.

              <clap, clap, clap>

              Listen up everyone! Just chill for a second will you!

              Moesha is still finalizing the cast as it seems some actors feel they have been typecast improperly and are threatening to sue. Whatever [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img] . VTrider is handling that now.

              Robby darling, mohair is so over please go back to makeup and see that your costume is changed. You're supposed to look like a Steeplechase jockey, not a character from Ed Woods!

              Slugger baby, we're still on for drinks later? to discuss your more personal role in my film? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

              DMK love, you shall have your underling! A diva such as you deserves a flunky of her own! I think Palisades would be good, the exotic dancing was a bit much for her, she put out her back in practice last night.

              Mo! Dahling, Malkovich is flying down today to Culpeper (are you ready for him VTrider?? - NO! I didn't mean that ready!! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] ) He needs to go over his lines with Snowbird for his scene with ETBW in the hayloft.

              Got to run - the Lear is waiting to take me to Nunavit to do Heidi's scene. Apparently there was some problem with the male polar bear - got a bit unhappy for some reason. Don't worry! Its cold up there, the paramedics will be able to reattach the camera man's arm.

              Off you go everyone! More later <clap clap clap> You can't rush artistry you know.

                Ummm, I know it is in very bad taste to beg for and suggest a possible role for one's self all in the same breath .....but, I couldn't help but notice that you didn't have a matron/chaperone for the Miss Crab contestants yet....Can I--PLEASE--be that very special woman with the big hair who helps the girls into their crab costumes and sends them off to perform with a smile on her face and visions of tartar sauce in her heart?

                If you don't think it is the role for me, so be it--where's that casting couch again? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]

                  you are a great creator Moesha!! i love it and will "BE" the part babay!!


                  • #89
                    but there seems to be a small difficulty with the farm logo on the harness brasses. REALLY, they took "brass" TOO literally!

                    I had to whip out my copy of Emily Post to show them that there IS NOT a section barring diamonds before 6 on show harness.

                    Cartier is going to have to bring a nice selection to calm my ruffled nerves.

                    Nicole would like to attend Saratoga this summer to truly get "into" the part. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

                      Moesha, WHERE do you come up with this stuff!!!

                      Now, off to polish my sidesaddle and write 30 minute acceptance speech for my Oscar [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
                      ****Indecision may or may not be my problem****

                        Jair do be careful, I hope Heidi's skin isn't being exposed to the cold!!!!! And I am not so happy about yuor dinners with Slugger lately!! We must keep this professional!!! I still have so many positions in various departments to fill and of course the cast is FAR from finished!!!

                        VtRider will me Johnny at Dulles, and then take him off for sightings!!

                        The problem are a bit small THIS HOUR, the younger A/O hunters are both bay? i am afraid to may of the "rivals" are on mathcing horses and it will look cluttered?? What do you think?

                        Also Janet's cards came in....They handmade and gold plaited a Morrocan theme!!!! I specifically told them Wiccan so use a Celtic theme or "nature" oriented one for effect, no we have 3,500 worth of custom gold cased Tarot Cards!

                        Andrew called and I am helping him with the musical number, hopefully it will be ready by this afternoon for review!

                          Have obviously come off your glider, director Jair. I was in my mohair sweater for a casual meeting. Clearly it wasn't costume. Now be nice to me - or I'll reveal to the cast and tabloids a nice little morsel from our tryst in St. Bart's. Let's just say that Director Jair likes to power trip as a method to, uhm, overcompensate for other departments in which he's lacking! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                          Granted, I've gotten half-way to where I am now from a good case of mattress-back [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img] but NO ONE doubts my fashion sense (and gets away with it). I mean, I continuously make People's Best Dressed List and I have two personal stylists and pay the salary for an additional internal stylist at Barney's. Not to mention I just have inherent good taste.

                          God, now you've upset my method, Jair. You're too difficult to work with and you're inhibiting my creative process. I'm going to my trailer to do some yoga now so I can regain my focus. And you can rest assured this episode *will* be mentioned when I do my cover interview with Vanity Fair tomorrow.

                            Well since I'm such a behind the scenes player that I didn't make the cast list (Moesha I was there, on the casting couch, ready and waiting, and you were nowhere to be found!)

                            I'm happy to take any kind of a job/role .... Director's Assistant, Assistant Producer (I'm a chick who can get guys, I mean things), general Go-Fer ... please your fabulousness, let me be a part of your world!

                              As I'm sure you're all aware, yes, darlings, hold the applause, I have been nominated for a best actress Oscar for my riveting role in "The Heart is a Lonely Bay Hunter".

                              My most annoying but oh-so-stylishly-bitchy stylist Phillip Blochhead has arranged a line-up of dresses for the occasion and I shall choose one, safely hidden as I will be behind a one-way mirror. Goodness knows how Donatella threw an Anna Magnani-sized fit the last time I rejected her dress. Harry Winstons has sent over an array of glacier-sized baubles and the only accessory missing is arm-candy. Darling Robby I'd ask you but fear we might be a tad redundant - too, too Radziwill and Capote.

                              Oh sigh, what's a best actress nominee to do?

                                (sigh**) why do I always have to fix Everything!!!

                                Now Robby Dear, we wouldn't want to go about spreading such rumours to the press would we? Of course not, I'll see what can be done about a "bonus" salary increase if we can keep your St. Barts trip with Jair just between the need to know crowd, what do you say? I'll even throw in a visit with a certain Tibetian you are quite fond of for your soul maintenance!!!

                                Heidi, why are you in the trailer on your laptop? You haven't gotten chapped skin...or worse frost bitten? Jair will be there momentarily, now go soak in a tub . I do hope that Jair's assistant is alright! Are the bears cute my dear? How much film shooting have you all done in the past two days, poor Jair says he can hardly sleep there, he is up all the time working!!!

                                VtRider, what do yuo think of Crytal glowing in various pastel colors rocks for the Sirens!!!!!

                                    Alright - Paul Mitchell and I both agree that extensions aren't a good look for SIMON. I still think he needs a rug!

                                    The school uniforms - yes K Spade - the Britney look at the way...if some of the girls don't have long enough hair to do the braids, we can use the extensions that we were going to use for SIMON.

                                    Jair Jair and Moe Moe - please let me know what the script for the Culpeper scenes are...I don't have any time to spare!!!

                                    I am going back on the road in the Quantum for a while. Moesha's nice lunch budget of $1.50 got me a Tab and a pack of Nabs [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_mad.gif[/img]!

                                        Rest assured Mo, Trooper-Joe (my new assistant) is doing well. The bears gave up on her after about 10 minutes. She'll heal quickly I'm sure. Sad thing is though all the screaming everytime she sees a teddy bear [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img] oh well...

                                        Robby, what can I say? I was drunk. I don't remember. So say all you want to Vanity Fair. besides, everyone knows about your dependancy on magic mushrooms, what makes you think they'd believe you? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                                        Heidi!! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_mad.gif[/img] Get you head out of the clouds and get back to work! I'm not paying you a flipping $100,000 a day to lounge around in your silk pj's and moon over "who may take you to the Oscars". Get back into that rubber suit and get back in the shark cage!

                                        Don't worry Moesha! Damage control is underway. No one can tarnish our images!!! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif[/img]

                                        • Moesha, I cannot believe that you'd disclose all:

                                          "Heidi, why are you in the trailer on your laptop?"

                                          Jair, darling, our secret is out! Quick, get Jake Bloom on the line! Where's my pre-nup?
