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!

    Thank you all for the questions! I would prefer by September first if at all possible as it does take me some time to organize but of course I would never turn anything away. The ride is scheduled for September 29th and I am absolutely desperate for donations. How nice does it need to be? Just usable. People love good deals and the used tack auctions off very well in the silent auction. I have even auctioned off home decor and it did great. So nothing is turned away, every dime makes a difference! The silent auction is a big hit each year and often brings in a good portion of the funds raised. Thank you all for checking and I greatly appreciate any donation!

      It looks like this is turning into two or three boxes! Don't worry I will have all the paperwork worked out for you when I send them!

                  Thank you Horsefaerie! It really has been quite depressing this year but just your faith gives me hope! You have been incredible and I so appreciate how much you are doing! I did recieve the box saturday and it was incredible. May be putting in some bids myself.

                    Another one goes out today. Good Lord willing and the creek don't rise. THere will be at least one more if not two more as not everyone has completed their donations. Hang in there!

                      OK, there will be at least two more boxes. The nicest things are coming in. It is just arranging them in the box so that the fragile items hopefully will not get broken!

                      I don't like mailing fragile things in heavy boxes (like the last one)!

                      Smile!

                        Bump

                        Please excuse this bump but I am horribly behind in donations this year. Please know that anything is appreciated from riding wear to tack to decorative items. You name it, it is all greatly appreciated! And a special thank you to Horsefaerie for all of her incredible work in rounding up donations for this great cause!

                          Ok, box # four went in the mail today! There will be a box number five but I am not sure when! I have a few things and am expecting more.

                          So bumpily bump!

                              Awesome! THis is such a tough year for everyone! It has hit charities and fundraisers hard the last few years. With hay and feed prices going through the roof and horses not selling, fewer lessons and all it is hard.

                              THis is such a great cause and Tressa works so hard!

                              I must admit I am blown away by the local tack shops, barns and stables with the enthusiasm this year!

                                Donations

                                Horsefaerie you blow me away! You are an angel sent from heaven!

                                I did recieve a donation in the mail a couple of days ago and can't figure out who to thank. There were some nice blankets, bell boots and sport boots, etc. I would love to give appreciation where appreciation is due! However if you wish to remain annonymous just know the donation is so very appreciated!

                                  You should have gotten the two boxes by now. One would have weighed about 22 pounds and the other about 12? Both should be there. Let me know if they came in.

                                  At least one more before the first I think. I have a few things but I am picking up some more this week.

                                    A nice morning bump for a great cause.

                                    I hope I have the time to get the last box out before that storm hits. Fingers crossed it dissipates and goes back to sea.

                                      Horsefaerie, are you near the storm's track? Be careful! Bringing my goodies to equuslover tonight! (we live nearby).

                                        I may not have electricity here shortly. I don't own a smart phone so that may mean no internet access. I did not get the last box off. Doubt that I will until after the storm.

                                        Paradox, I hope EL got many lovely things for the auction. I placed a notice with our local DCTA but I have not yet received any donations, possibly due to the storm.

                                        I did pick up another two donations from our local western Tack store! Folsom LA is tiny but generous!

                                        I'll try to be in touch!
