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!

  • Celebrating Cactuskate: I'd like to propose a group ad in COTH

    As posted on the thread announcing Kathy's death, I'd like to propose that we take out a group ad in the COTH and memorialize Kathy's sheer bravado and spirit.

    I can't think of anything more perfect for the ad than the picture of Kathy "RocketMan" Havens atop Bud with her backpack of oxygen.

    The ad rates, according to the online mag, are, for 2 colour:

    Full page - $1342
    2/3 page - $1055
    1/2 page - $862

    There will likely be production costs unless someone is able to produce camera-ready artwork - in which case there is a 15% discount off the base-rate.

    I am more than happy to organize this effort and contribute towards the cost of the ad. If someone is able to get in touch with Kathy's husband to ensure that he has no objections and if others are able to produce camera-ready artwork, that too would be wonderful, please either post here or email me.

    She was such an inspiration to so many of us, it seems only fitting that we celebrate her courage and joy for life in the pages of COTH.

                The separation and getting started on my own (with 2 horses) has left me finacially challanged, but My husband and dearest friend is a creative director at an ad agency in Baltimore. He lays out ads in his sleep. I'm sure he'd take care of the layout for us, and I'll be personally repsonsible for placing the media and trafficing the ad. I mean that's what I do for a living.

                    Firstly, we need to get her husband's consent. I'm going to send an email to Kathy's email address and hope that someone there is reading her incoming messages. Failing that, I'll contact the funeral home and see whether I can get contact info. for her husband/family.

                    Lisamarie - that'd be fabulous. If he's feeling especially inspired, perhaps he can create a headline and copy for the ad, too -- though I know there are several people on the BB who work in the industry and may well have some ideas for headline and copy also.

                    Please do post if you're interested so I can get an approximate 'head count'; but I'd like to wait until we get some form of approval from her husband/family before I start collecting money.

                      Heidi, I can send an email to Kathy's friend who posted the original thread, and see if she can contact Kathy's husband or pass along his contact info to us.

                        I would SO love to be able to do that for her and her family. Copy can come from wherever her husband wants it to come from. If he's not up to it I'm sure the board can decide on something. We'll lay it out, do the insertion order and be sure to get it to the publication.

                          That would be wonderful.

                          If you do get the info. Erin, do you want to contact her husband/family to get their permission for the memorial ad and use of the picture? If that's the case, I'll either post and/or email lisamarie with the go-ahead.

                          BTW, lisamarie, I don't want to burden her husband/family with trying to dig up the original photo - if we use the photo that Kathy posted of herself directly from the BB, will we lose a lot in resolution?

                            Heidi, I was just in the process of checking that out, cause i thought the same thing. It looks like it was scanned in at an OK res. The top picture I think would come out pretty well, but i'd have to check with Billy to be certain.

                            I just looked for my COTH rate card (yes I'm a geek) and i lost it in the mood, whoops MOVE (Calling Dr. Freud, is Dr. Freud in the house)...along with my reps name. Erin, can you point me in the right direction with that one when the time comes?

                              Heidi, just sent off the email, and asked if there was a way for either you or I to get in touch with him (after the services). I'll let you know whatever I hear back, and I can contact them for you, if you'd rather.

                              LisaMarie, you probably have all this info already, but here are the COTH's ad specs and rate info:

                                    On the photo resolution thing, I think that you need something like 150 dpi for a printer and 300-600 for a service bureau. Not sure where COTH print ads fit into this scheme.
