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!

    • Sorry but I can't really get behind any company that calls itself "The Global Youth Network" (aka iHigh). Maybe their name signifies the state of mind of the videographer--nothing seems to be in great focus! I'm having no problem with the stream but the quality, compared to other feeds (including many from Europe), is just awful. BTW, I'm on a Mac and also pulled it up on my iPad using iSwifter.

      • I'm watching the live feed on embedded in COTHs coverage. International Jumpers are suppose to be starting at 5:20 but there's a hack class going on. IHigh's page doesn't show a live feed until 7:00. Nothing about International Jumpers, no links and not on the time schedule on their page. WTH?

        Comment


        • http://www.ihigh.com/alltechequine/b...?silverlight=1 Should be the currently streaming $50k Open Jumpers Faults Converted class

          ETA: I think iHigh sometimes switches links/file names as they go through and archive the feeds so not all of the links on the Chronicle's page are correct anymore.

          • Thank you Polymer, I must've had the wrong link.

            Does anyone have a order of go or live results that are free to access?

                    • Even the archived footage is buffering every 2 seconds for me.. I have a pretty quick connection and super speedy computer. I've tried playing it on Chrome and Firefox.. I really hope the Maclay isn't on iHigh

                          Better than the 2:30 and 3:00 a.m. schooling times at the old MSG!! (Kid you not: that really happened.)

                          I'm here and I'm having an absolute BLAST. Anybody who says this isn't the "real" National Horse Show either wasn't really THERE, or has never been HERE. It's magical and glamorous and I am loving it!!! If you're within reasonable driving distance I recommend coming in person. It is SO much fun!!! There are a lot more people here than it looks like in pics; it's just that no one wants to sit on the ends and the seating is GA so everyone packs into the side stand that you can't see. The shopping is wonderful and the people-spotting is even more fun than the show half the time!

                          Good luck to everyone showing this weekend!

                            Oh, they still have some crazy schooling hours. The 6:00 AM start is for the unjudged warm up class in the show ring.

                              • Yeah they have 6 a.m. and midnight tonight (I'm blowing off this morning but might stay late & watch some of that) but at least those are hours a rider would more or less be there anyway. I would hope show management isn't going to inflict 3 a.m. times on the kids/trainers again. Surely mgt. has heard the stories from the old MSG where they gave the 3 a.m. slot to the Good Hands kids one year and ALL of MSG and half the Hilton got TP'd before security called in the NYPD!

                                    I don't think they are showing the maclay schooling so it starts at 1030 I think. Bummer, but after all the issues we've had with this show's online content.. who's surprised?

                                      Then what's the point of having a live feed. Most everyone who watches indoors is for the GP's and the Medal Finals. Today's warmup was huge IMO and I'm very disappointed that ihigh didn't record it. Hopefully next year they show will partner up with someone else.

                                      • O.M.G the feed sucks!!!! It will not go more than 20 seconds without freezing and buffering, followed by literally 4 strides of horse than repeating. And I am at home now on a very fast gaming computer with high speed internet.

                                          I went last year and I completely agree - it WAS magical! Had a wonderful time and the atmosphere truly was special. Hopefully the word is getting out that that's the case!

                                          I was going to try and pull up the feed on my iPad, but sounds like it might not be worth the trouble. Drat. Shades of the Olympics, eh?
