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!

    If you were competing at Flying Cross, Champagne Run or Jump Start (then probably at MidSouth) look on this website and you may find some photos!

    If we hadn't personally talked to her at the rail at warm-up for sj at Jump Start I would have never known that she had taken some pics of my daughter and my horse.

    Wow! Thank you for catching that. There are some great shots in there! They really need to advertise for photo junkies like me.

        Cool, will look forward to maybe finding some Jumpstart photos, although I will say that Xpress photo took some of the best ones I've ever gotten of Boscoe there this past weekend. Please allow me to share them because I'm so thrilled with my big spotted horsey!

                  The photographer probably has a day job these big shows are a real job to sort and post. But holey smokes look at the teaser pic!! This horse definitely sees the boogey man in that ditch!

                  I've seen these people taking pics before around the events but since they are not the offical photog I bet they can't hang fliers, so just ask, talking made my discovery. Glad to share.

                      That was a big freaking ditch. Even my little dog had to bounce it, where normally he jumps right across.

                          Object to dissing Xpress Photo. Jeff and Laurie work very hard and provide excellent service - in spite of a tremendous disrespect for their Intellectual Property. Buy their pix or not - your choice - but don't steal their product.

                          Re: Ivegotyourpicture, enjoyed several conversations with her during the day (I video our students for post-event evaluations) and wish her well in her efforts.

                            I agree that the folks at Xpress Photo are wonderful. If you're a genuine customer they bust their butts to have your CD ready before you leave. They offer very generous discounts. Always cheerful and helpful and they take TONS of great pictures. If you heard some of the stories of classless people snapping pictures off their computers with their cell phones, poaching and stealing photos and sliming themselves backwards and forwards to avoid paying a few bucks for a photo, it would turn your stomach.

                              I like Laurie with Xpress. She works well with me, I do some course decorating so we've been friendly. I just offered this up b/c I saw some really nice new pics and it is so nice for riders to be able to study stills that are captured.

                              Hey ... she's posting the T xc at JS ... I see a certain plump spotted horse barreling ass around

                                OMG! Only a few numbers left before mine! Why am I so nervous/ excited!?!?

                                Re: xPress Foto: I have no problem with them not wanting images stolen. In fact, I have had a few (non-horse) related photos published and not received credit properly, so I feel for them. However, I am really unhappy with their options-- I can only pay to view one photo at a time online (why not a fee to view them all for a few days?) and I've never been a fan of their purchasing options. I also don't like having to choose print vs. online-- there should be a combo for that. My mom and I love to make photo books, so why can't I purchase the digital version and then later be able to put it into a personal photo book? I realize they have been around for a while and people have a lot of loyalty to them. That's a good thing; but I also feel like they are fighting reality to some degree. I don't like looking at photos at shows because it tends to make me feel rushed and pressured, and especially on the last day it is not always an option for me to stick around-- I don't own a trailer and leaving with/ caring for horsie so he gets on the ride home is more important.

                                  Why can't you? Just print the photos using any of the myriad options. Once you've purchased the images you have the right to use them for any sort of personal use.

                                    I'll read it again; but I'm pretty sure there is a note that says the digital versions are NOT printable. ---I suppose I should clarify- I mean the kind of photo book that you design online and then it comes as a book, with the photos in it, not a scrapbook- type one. I would need a digital version to be able to print it.

                                      Worth clarifying. All copyright statements seem to be a little different, but most of them IME seem to only put restrictions on printing or publishing photos for commercial use or in magazines without attribution or permission.

                                        also, I admit that as a business model, it isn't ideal to not have how to order things obvious on the website and that is my biggest issue with xpress foto, but I have gotten a deal on a print and the digital of the same image (I think $10 extra). Maybe you have to ask or email them, but I know I have done it from xpress.
                                        OTTBs rule, but spots are good too!
