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!

  • When will stadium begin...

    ...in Eastern Daylight Savings Time? C'mon y'all, help me out - dragging right now, still need to ride - coyotes were near our property last night and JRT and Aussie were in and out barking in the wee hours (went to bed after karen's XC ride and got up at 3:15 am!!!!! - 3rd graders are somewhat scary in that scenario - ). I can't get the times to watch tonight or tomorrow...

      Yes, I will be losing my job right around 8:30 when my boss gets in because I will try my hardest to watch the live feed even though I should be working

      That really is terrible timing for all of us who have to work - even if it's farm work as that's prime pre-big bad bug hour! But alas, I got to watch all of cross country so I won't complain....much

                So what does it mean on this little news clip that saws you can watch the jumping portion tonight at 7:15 pm?


                It doesn't look like any live-streaming is going on now though???

                  Simplified schedule on local HK time. http://bp1.blogger.com/_MPQU_lqeYOs/...8+Schedule.JPG
                  They are 12 hrs ahead of us. So - if it's 8:00pm on the 11th EST its 8:00am on the 12th in HK.

                    Honestly, I've found it easier to keep 4 boookmarks rather than navigate the NBC site each time!

                    The online video stream schedule is here: http://www.nbcolympics.com/tv_and_on...EQ/online.html

                    click the day you are interested in, and then scroll down and click on "equestrian". That section tells you what is live-feeding *now*. Clicking on equestrian icon tells you about video feed scheduled anytime in the day.

                    I think the little blurb got the time wrong. I think they meant 7:15 am, not PM.

                    PS. You can configure the page to match your time zone and schedule phone and email alerts for yourself. Despite the clunkiness of the navigation, they did a fantastic job with this site.

                      J-Lu, I could loan you a cat who is guaranteed to have you vertical, wide awake, and having dispensed breakfast (cat's, not yours) by 6:00 a.m. She could be an Olympic broadcast alarm cat.

                        You can watch it from 6 -8PM on Oxygen Tuesday night

                        Make any mistakes going forward!

                          OK, so dumb question.....in the Olympics is the 3-day not really three days? It looks like more than 24 hours between cross country and stadium (36 hours +/-?). And some of the dressage went on Saturday. Is that common?


                          • #14
                            Does anyone know if they are going to post information about when the jog is (and who makes it through)?

                              It will still be over three days (Dressage is often over several days as you have to use the same judges) but you're right it will be well over a day later - the last XC ride was approximately 11 am Monday in Hong Kong (11 PM EST Sunday - think half a day earlier) and the stadium doesn't start until 7.15 pm Tuesday so 7.15 am for anyone on the East Coast. This gives a break of around 36 hours for, say, a "late" XC rider who's towards the top of the Leader Board like some of the Germans or Mary King. Given the hot, humid conditions that's probably not an excessive gap and everyone gets about the same recovery time to the jog anyway.

                                It's 3 days - just confusing because they are 12 hrs ahead of us. They did cross country Monday AM their time. They are doing Stadim Tuesday PM their time.

                                They are getting a really long time off since the cross country was done before noon on Monday and the horses don't have to go until the following evening but it's still technically 3 days
                                Lord Stanely, Lord Stanley - come back to Pittsburgh!!!
