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!

  • Charles Mann also to have Daily Olympic Photo Coverage *Dressage pics up*

    Hi guys!!

    Charlie is now en route to China, though tonight he is only going as far as Chicago. He leaves from Chicago tomorrow and will arrive in Hong Kong on Thursday sometime.

    His website Olympic update page is ready and waiting for him to arrive and start shooting. And as a huge benefit for many casual browsers, you DON'T need to register. You can simply come online and view his galleries.

    http://www.cmannphoto.com/Olympics.htm

    He still has his entire image galleries from both the 2006 WEG at Aachen, and the 2004 Athens Olympics online. So by browsing those you will get a sense of what you will see from Hong Kong. And you can see some of your favorite horses and riders who are returning from medal winning efforts in Germany and Athens. There are great shots of ISP Salinero, Authentic, Poggio, and so many others...whose names I have trouble recalling!!

    So come on over and enjoy. Oh and Charlie can also be reached for high res downloads to interested folks as well. His contact info is on his site: www.cmannphoto.com

    **Update** He made it to Chicago. (Sounds like nothing, but as worried as I get when he travels, every completed step is a sigh of relief)

    Thank you, Emily --and THANK YOU, Charles Mann.

    It is so gracious and generous of him to offer this to all of us.

    I've already bookmarked the site...So often, his images help provide the feeling of 'being there' and giving another dimension to knowing how a ride went ,how a horse 'looked'.

      Must say, with all the videos and blogs and news coverage,etc, of these Olympic games, I still am rather in shock at the TeamUSA website.

      What federation--trying to attract money-- in this day and age demands that people have to register in order to SEE photos???

      Oh well, that sort of goes with the rest of the website, only about 5 years behind the times (a lifetime in cyberspace).

          Emily was right I could not sleep on the plane, so I crashed once I got to the hotel after my 15 hour flight over the North Pole. There are a couple images on my site and more to come later today after the 1st inspection of the eveting horses and our own Opening Ceremonies.

                        Just for a clear picture of how the "Mann" does his job....

                        He just called me at 12pm our time, 12 am his time. He had just gotten back to the hotel, was taking a shower and a 'nap'. He has to be up at 4am to make it over to the venue and have everything ready again for the 6:30 am start time. (Again we are 12 hours behind so thats 6:30pm)

                        Thankfully after that the dressage is done and Charlie is hopeful to get some sleep. All told he has done all this shooting off roughly 7 hours sleep over two days.

                        So think about how lucky we are to be able to casually click through his images while he is sweating himself thinner and working monstrous hours.

                        Great pics hon. Keep 'em coming.

                        ~Em

                          Anyway, I thought some of you might be interested in the local take on the equestrian news here in Hong Kong. Ever morning at the media breakfeast we sit a read over the South China Morning Post.

                                    Mike Winter and King Pin (CAN) had a run out and hit the brush and it unhooked his stirrup strap. Look closely at the three images before that one.

                                        I just e-mailed a friend who thought they saw me on TV and when she saw that pic she knew it was me. I should have taken a picture of myself and all the mud the Phillip and Connaught threw on me and the blased by.
