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!

  • TRANSPORT NEEDED to MD for - Unique "Charlie Chaplin" looking feline in VA

    Good news! I found a really great home for "Ms. Hitler." The hard part will be getting her there. New home located in Freeland, MD and I'm in Culpeper, VA. I can travel to about the Arundel Mills, MD area which is about 3 hours away. Can anyone help me get her closer to Freeland, MD (near the PA border) on a weekend? Please?!

    heatheradair1 (at) hotmail.com

    Ok, so we also call her "Ms. Hitler" sometimes too. At any rate, "Chaplain" is a unique looking black and white shorthaired female feline (with requisite "mustache) looking for a home. Already spayed and up to date on everything. Perfect with the litter box. She's just never going to be a lap cat. Would be AWESOME as a companion to another lonely feline.

    Started out life as a semi-feral (owners just abandoned her mom and brother outside when they moved so she didn't have human contact until she was older). Soooo, she just wouldn't be suitable for someone who wants something cute AND cuddly as she much prefers to keep to herself and not have humans trying to pet her (she's not the least bit mean - just shy).

    Anyhow, she's adorable and perfect for someone who wants an indoor companion only type kitty (and she's quick on the snack opportunity if a stray mouse dares attempt entrance to the house) or for someone who has a barn she can stay warm in (she's small boned w/ short hair so needs some decent protection). Located in Central VA (Culpeper). Send me a note if you are interested! Can possibly work out travel. Photos readily available!

          Shameless bump for help with transportation to Freeland (or close to it!), MD.

            Hmm... I might be able to do it. I'm only about 15 minutes from Arundel Mills. What weekend were you thinking? I'm going out of town for the holidays early next week so this weekend is going to be pretty busy, but I might be able to squeeze it in.

              Awesome! Was thinking this Saturday earlyish afternoon if that works at all. I'm traveling to FL to visit family the day after Christmas and would love to get her in her new home before I leave. Know the timing is a bit tough and any assistance is greatly appreciated!

                I have a potential adopter who is coming to meet Rosie (yay!) Saturday afternoon sometime. Is it possible the person in Freeland could come pick Miss Chaplin up down here? I'd be happy to get her from you at Arundel Mills and just hold her at my house, but I'm not sure I could make the drive on Saturday. It looks to be less than an hour from Freeland to my house (I'm near the inner harbor).

                  Hi, I'm the person from freeland for Mss Chaplin! It sounds great, just trying to figure out some details for my mom! Erin, we would love to pick her up from you on saturday but have a christmas party later in the day, my mom wants to know where your house is. Just PM me It usually takes us about 45 minutes to get down there, traffic permitting
                  Thanks so much!!!!!


                  • #10
                    OK, my schedule on Saturday might actually have freed up a bit, because an adopter I like better is interested in Rosie, so I might give the Saturday person the heave-ho.

                    fxhillfarm, I'll PM you shortly. If Saturday is too chaotic, I could probably hold her here until Sunday, but with luck maybe we can get Saturday to work out.

                      LOL She is too precious!! Good luck.

                        Home for Christmas

                        Yay! Sounds like this might work!!! I would be thrilled if she had a home for Christmas. Erin, could you send me (email or PM) your phone number so we can work out a time/exact place for Saturday? Thank you so much for helping to coordinate this!!!

                        And Foxhill thank YOU so much for giving her a home! I'll send along a wire crate and she'll be in a carrier of course. Do you need food/water bowls? I have extras if so. Will also send along extra food as well.

                          Yay we are so excited!!

                          We have plenty of bowls and we will have to go get her some of her own cat food because our house cats are on a special diet kind haha
                          Send along some of yours and we can go get the same brand!

                          Erin what time is good for you for us to come pick her up Saturday? We are available around 2pm if that is ok with you?

                          Thank you all very much!

                            If you're able to pick her up at my house, I can do just about anytime on Saturday. I might have a potential adopter here, but I can multitask and make sure the kitties all get to the right owners.

                            dressageandtrailrider, I'll PM you shortly.
