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!

      I am sorry the last box will be late. I have been busy cleaning up and all the things that go with a hurricane.

      THere will be one more box. OK, maybe TWO. But one at least.

      I hope some other folks have gotten some things to you as well. It sure does reflect the economy, huh?

      Looking forward to pics etc!

        Thanks, horsefaerie. EQ asked me to monitor the thread this week as she is out of town. Thank you so much! I did try to send a pm to you last week, but your box seems full.

        I hope all is well with you after the storms. And it has been a tough year for donations. Don't know where we'd be without you. And yes, we'll be sure to take pics!

          I have some things (and some are brand new with tags), items owned by a friend of mine who passed away in December from cancer. I'm selling them for the family but some items haven't sold yet and I'm happy to send them. But I'm in Ontario so they may not get there in time. Would you be able to use them next year if they don't arrive?

            donations

            Absolutely I can always use items. It has happened in the past where items don't arrive on time and that just gets me one step ahead for the next year. Thank you so much for the generous offer!

                Are you in Watertown outside of Lebanon? If so, I'm a professional photographer, and I'd be happy to donate my time and services. I'll also start going through my stuff! I'm in Nashville, although I may need to update my profile to reflect that...

                  Good afternoon DillansMom. I am in Watertown, just outside of Lebanon! And do work in Nashville. Thank you so much for your incredible offer! I know personally I would love a professional photographer session, so am sure it will be a huge hit!
                  I must say, I am BLOWN AWAY by the Coth community. What a group of absolutely incredible people.

                        I can't tell you how much you all mean to me, what an incredible community of people. It's never too late to send a package, thank you!
                        Though my niece, Savannah, lost her battle, thanks to you all other children will win thier struggle. I would like to share this link with you all to show why this event is so close to my heart. I hope it works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KyGR50BNmI
                        We miss you Savannah!
                        Bless you all!

                            What a beautiful video. Savannah looked like a very special person.

                            I too am in tears.

                            Thank you for sharing.

                                  I almost never look in this forum so just saw this thread. What a beautiful tribute to a beautiful girl! The video really captures how special and loving and happy she was. I'm another one in tears. It's not fair that she's gone! There's no way I can get anything to you in time - I won't even be near a post office this week - but I'll send you something for next year.

                                    Thank you for the kind words, Savannah truly was a special person who is greatly missed. Please do keep us in mind for next year as we continue our fight against childhood cancer. Thanks again

                                        Checked the tack room and found an Antares girth I will send (I don't use it anymore) and a dressage girth and a breastplate/martingalge.

                                        I will try to get these as priority mail so you get them on time.

                                        Beautiful girl, beautiful life, and beautiful memories -

                                          Horsefaerie you are my hero! Reefy, thank you so much for the donation! If donations do not make it on time it just means I will have a head start for next year!
                                          Again, I want to thank you all for taking the time to read my post, watching Savannah's video and sharing our memories of her while helping us in this fight for childhood cancer. No child should suffer through cancer, no family should lose a child. The devastation that it brings upon a family cannot be expressed. I know we are making a difference, not just for children but for the families who cherish them.
                                          God bless!
