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 know she had her info posted everywhere, but somehow I still managed to come home without it. Did anyone get her email?

    Thanks!

    I've got it, I'll send it to you via FB unless her mom (Dr. Doolittle) beats me to it.

          The photographer's e-mail She is having some computer problems (hard drive seized up over the weekend; had to buy a new one last night), but the pix should be downloaded (and sorted) by mid week.

          If you are interested in seeing your proof(s), please e-mail her with a description of your horse and colors--she tried to get pinney shots of everyone, but it would help with the sorting! (Also keep in mind that there was "only one of her", so there won't be multiple jumps )

          Some examples of her work can be viewed on her Facebook Page:

            I emailed her, thanks guys!
            And sorry about the hard drive--that's never fun.

              Yes, thanks, what a PITA! She has loaded them and is sorting through them now, trying to attach numbers to photos to e-mail requests. She got quite a few good ones (I hope yours was one of them; what number were you?)

              (Too funny, she said "I can't be responsible for the horse's jumping form", lol! It's tough to get good shots over the lower jumps, obviously, since they are just "stepping over". ) There are some priceless pix of riders getting left and such, good "learning shots"...(She will probably post the miscellaneous good shots that *weren't* requested by individual riders so that they can be viewed on her FB page, but is downloading some watermarking software first so that all of her proofs don't get stolen off the site.)

                I was #22 and #59.
                I would not be surprised if I am one of the "learning shots."

                  We will look for you (she is working on homework, at present.) And yb, what was the pinney number of your girl on the bay? Diana missed horse # 35, somehow (and that rider had sent an e-mail query, so it was very frustrating when she couldn't find her; paperwork indicated that she missed jump 6, so don't know whether she got to the jump Diana was shooting? She took over 700 photos, and got just about every single rider. She is planning to try to get the proofs e-mailed out to people by tomorrow evening.)

                    COTHers: the Loch Moy photos are being sorted (thanks for your patience), and the photographer should be sending each person their photo to view via e-mail by sometime this weekend at the latest: she has gotten about 55 e-mails so far, so it's slow going. She didn't get great shots of everyone, but she got a *lot* of really good shots! (I would like to have her post the best ones on her Facebook Fan Page or the Loch Moy website, but she wants to get back to everyone who e-mailed her first.)

                    Beam Me Up: the shot of #22 wasn't optimal timing, but the one of #59 was pretty good! Your horse's front legs are "split", but otherwise everything looks quite nice (It was over the jump out/half coffin. Some of the horses must have left a stride out there , Diana's comment "they left from MARS!" In these cases, the back end of the horse isn't even visible in the frame.)

                      Awesome! Can't wait to see them!
                      #22 did have a bit of a flier over the ditch, so I can only imagine what the out might have looked like.
                      I don't remember #59 at that fence, BN didn't have the ditch, just the jump, which probably bodes well photo-wise.

                      (It was #22's first novice, and #59's first event, so anything that doesn't look terrifying I'd love to see!)

                        Ah! That explains it...

                        Pretty good for a first event, since you just want them to complete and have a positive experience! (The photographer has been sick with a virus since last night, and stayed home from school today--but soldiered through the sorting process for a few hours today...By the end of the weekend, things should be squared away.)

                          Sorry don't mean to be pushy I know she wasn't feeling well, but can we get an update on the progress. I personally haven't received any information since I emailed last Monday
                          (18th), should I email info again?? Thanks

                            My apologies on her behalf, Yance (she is not on the COTH, which is why I am posting); she now has almost all of the photos edited and has most of them ready to send (has sent off a few already); unfortunately her schoolwork has to come first--and since she missed school due to illness, she was completely swamped yesterday and was only able to devote about 30 minutes to finishing and sending. (The photos were sorted by the weekend, and *should* have gone out.) Believe me, I have been reminding her of how unprofessional it is to make unrealistic promises! She should have thought ahead and anticipated how long it would take, giving herself a full 8-10 days, and also should have apprised competitors of this via e-mail! (She did respond to all 50 or so e-mails, individually, but hasn't had a chance to re-e-mail everyone, apologizing for the delay.)

                            SPF10, what was your pinney number? (Since you are being so patient, I will tell her to put you at the top of the list tonight )

                            I completely understand everyone's impatience (and have tried to explain this to her, being a rider myself, I am always anxious to see pix from a show, hoping that the photographer got something good of me and my horse...If you don't like it, don't buy it--not every pic is going to be perfect! She is "only one person", keep in mind, and she got shots of 148 out of 150 riders.)

                            The reason I posted here was to try to reach some of the riders so as to explain the delay (not to make excuses for my teenager.) Anyone else here have a teenager? Nuff said.

                            I remember the "good old pre-digital days" (not THAT long ago) when we would wait (usually a week or two) for proofs to be snail mailed to us. They would be in the form of a 3X5 with a hole punched in it, or a big red PROOF stamped across it, and if we liked it, we mailed them a check, and they mailed us the picture; this process often took up to 3 weeks. Nowawdays it's easy to get the pix out (if you are a pro) since you can download and sort and have a system; that said, even Brant Gamma often takes up to a week to get everything online for viewing.

                            Thanks to everyone for your patience, and no need to be snarky...

                              Well slap my grandma, that's a pretty brazen comment.

                              This just seems plain messy.

                                  Brant does top quality work (and has her pix up in a very timely fashion), but even *she* might ocassionally have computer problems (or lots and lots of photos to process, like at the AECs.) Personally, I don't have a problem with waiting a little longer to get great shots that have been edited and cropped and that are frameworthy. (And I usually don't have to, of course, since she does this for a living and has a system in place. )

                                    I have to say that I was THRILLED that we even had a photographer at the unrecognized horse trials! For a young photographer just starting out, I think she did a great job. I contacted her, and she got back to me right away and was very professional and friendly. She just emailed me my proof yesterday and it's fabulous!! How many photographers do you know who will email you your proof - not a link saying "Hello, competitor, proofs are now posted..." but a thoughtful personal email?

                                    Plus, her prices are great.

                                    Dr. Doolittle - tell your daughter she did a great job, and keep up the good work! Always happy to help support the young photographers, and hey, we're just happy to get good photos at these schooling shows!
