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!

                    Of course torontodressage = Theo. That was clear from the very beginning.

                    The fact that Parzival won the GPS is very good news for our sport. Love to see competition!!

                        I wholeheartedly love Totilas, but must admit it is SO nice to see there are horses who can go hoof to hoof with him! It just isn't as exciting when you always know who is going to win. Go Parzival and Adelinde!!!!!!

                          I have to say it was very exciting. Tortilas would have won, but for taking a step back after the first halt while EG was picking up his reins.

                          This is the first time I have seen Tortilas live and have to say he was spectacular. A friend of mine said he must be bionic and I have to agree that he is just a freakish mover - freakish in a good way.

                          But I don't want to take anything away from Parsival. He was elegant and floated across the arena.

                                Like the judges stated at the pressconference, "we have to discuss with the FEI if we could give higher scores as a 10 "

                                Adelinde received 8's, 9's and a few 10's, while Edward received 36x 10's many 9's and 8's but also 2's and 3's .

                                  He sure is....we all know his new alias....I wonder if Theo would allow his members to promote other boards on his....uh NO since he has so many silly levels and will monitor everything everyone says hypocrisy at its finest.

                                    He must have had his knuckles rapped for directing traffic to his own website.
                                    He must need a spreadsheet to keep track of his alters by now.

                                      I know BBs are basically petty banana republics--and if I could dig up any of the famous old posts on "What Happens on a BB" I would do so... They always point out that whatever question is asked/whatever opinion is held, there are 14 people to agree, 12 who categorically say you are a chowderhead, 7 who move to ban the OP, 5 who then change the topic completely, 3 who point out it is not nice to highjack, and so on and so on.

                                      I love this BB because it is is well-run; because there are a few people who actually make interesting comments (which is a few more than many other BBs);because it is a good place to come for news;because it is in my native tongue, English; and of course because there is always some controversy going on.

                                      That said--I am in Theo's camp, as I suppose everyone knows by now, as I am always saying thank you for the videos,etc etc.,

                                      I do so hope that whatever malice, whatever hurt, whatever anger there might be here, everyone will at least acknowledge that having access to videos of the quality that Theo provides is a service ,and that no one tries to ruin this great source of education and entertainment.

                                      I am always hoping for horse sport to become more like other business sports; and of course that means, money to be made out of what goes on in the sport.

                                      So FEI TV fights with clipmyhorse and filmloop and NOS cannot show video outside of Netherlands,and so on and so forth...but here I am going to be totally selfish and say that I hope to always be able to watch Theo's videos.

                                        Trouble is - in achieving your nirvana you have to brown-nose Theo. How does the FEI feel about his "great source of education and entertainment" ?
