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!

      Thank you so much, COTH's aren't posting any scores yet and when I checked KY's website nothing had been posted either.

        Tiffany Loudon just moved into 2nd place with a score of 55.0, good for her!

            I think we should have a pity party!

            I was supposed to go to Rolex this year, yet this stupid nuisance they call a job interfered. Stupid bills!

              Me and you both CluesGirl! Two years in a row I have had to go to a meeting on Rolex weekend. Have to leave tomorrow for Atlanta...

                And me too, my friends decided to go to World Cup this year so I stayed home. But next year I'm going back to KY even if no one comes with me, now that I know I can meet up with COTH BB people for company.


                • #9
                  Can I join the pity party? I came very close to quitting my job in order to go this year...then my USEAHusband reminded me that without said nuissance employment I could kiss goodbye my dream of getting my horses there one day. Well. That worked. July 1st I'm starting with a new boss. I'll ask for the time off (for 2006) on July 2nd. Humph!

                    now, now, I have the ultimate pity party here in Dallas.

                    all due to my new job, started this week:

                    only 10% of the time does my computer think well enough to even get on to the Chronicle Site....this is the first time this week! and thank goodness caues I needed some Rolex updates!
                    I get out of work at 4:30-5:00 instead of 3:00. which means traffic, and less time for the Booms Man and his workouts. he's used to being ridden at 4pm. I had to wake him up yesturday evening and he was grouchy!

                    darn bills.
                    Horses are amazing athletes and make no mistake -- they are the stars of the show!

                      I wanted to go too, but work reared its ugly head (actually, it's a good job and I didn't want to jeopardize it). Since I fear this is the last 4 star CCI ever, I really wanted to go, but it was not to be.

                      If I want to see a horse trial next year, I'll go watch Advanced at Wayne. No point in driving 11 hours to do the same at the horse park, unless I'm riding in it!

                      On the plus side, has anyone noticed how fast the board is today with all the posters gone at Rolex? See? There is a silver lining!

                        AllyCat, I felt the same way you do about not going to watch a short format next year but after reading about how committed Janie Atkinson is to saving the long format (having it during non-championship years at the minimum) I want to do anything I can to support her and her event. So I expect to be there next year.


                        • #13
                          Well, if they have it next year, I'll go!! I just figured the powers that be will insist on the short and that would be the end of it.

                          Who knew "little" Kentucky as I heard it called a decade or so ago, would be the pinnacle of our sport (except for maybe the WEG).

                          Where did you read this? Was it in Eventing USA? I'll need to figure out what I did with it so I can read her take on it.

                            I can't remember where but I have read about it in more than one place, I'm sure there is something in this week's Rolex KY preview issue. They will hold short format during World Championship and Olympic years but the plan is to have a long format during the other years. Also, Janie Atkinson is of the opinion that eventually people will not be so thrilled with the short format and she wants to make sure that KY at least maintains the long version. There may even be something about this on the Eventing forum.


                            • #15
                              AllyCat, read the Commentary on COTH's website, it refers to Janie Atkinson's feelings on this as well as saying to go to page 56 to read more about how she is trying to preserve the long format. Hopefully you're a COTH subscriber so you can access this info.

                                Looks like the day is done! Last score for today is posted. Congrats to Jan Thompson... first to break into the 40s. Should be interesting to see what tomorrow brings.

                                  Thanks for throwing the pity party! I was beginning to think I was whining alone!

                                  Darn day job. Well, for that matter, my night job too -- I couldn't have gotten the barn covered, so it is just as well that I didn't go. <sigh>

                                  Love the format of the scoreboard, and lovelovelove the real time posting!!
