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!

  • LONG ISLAND UPDATE

    Well, so much as been going on lately I have not been able to post my usual update. Here goes....

    Startig off with the LIHSAA ballot results. By-laws are finished. Tabulations are in. The current board as gone over it and approved it. The elected members are being notified now. They will be merging with the exsisting board to ensure a smooth transition and both can work together to clear up problems that need working on. As soon as all have been notified I will post the new board members. I would like to thank all who took the time to fill out the ballots. Without input from Long Isladers the proper job could not get done.

    PHA meeting have been very busy and many important issues have been coming up. Horse show comittee has been hard at work. Yaphank is where we have decided would be the best place. The large schooling ring has been the main topic. All weather footing is the goal in that ring. Looks like we are almost there! Please come to the next meeting [monday, november 5th] if you have any suggestions or help with ideas. Any one with a construction company is really welcome LOL!

    Dinner Dance is coming up. It is the 50th aniversary of L.I. PHA. We would like to do somethig with pictures through the years. The older the better. I need 8x10's to display at the dinner dance. Please, everyone look through what you have in that box in the corner of the closet and get back to me.

    Elections are next month. President at this time is the only catagory where you the Long Island community will have a decision to make. Your 2 choices up to now are Dick London and Hanna Ruttiman. Any comments? Here is a place to view your thoughts. [until LIHSAA website gets a message board........oops,did I really go there!!!!! lol] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]

    Let's see some activity here long island...

      Well Deb, I couldnt understand reading your post that the voting for President would be the last paragraph of your post knowing that it would be a major issue, but then again I thought about it some more and it was planned good, because you definetly got my attendtion on it. Leaving the best for last were you???
      But I do think that we need to put a few more people up there, I can think of a few others who attend the shows that have a handle on the up dated rules and not ones that learn as they go. I dont want to sound so judgmental on this but it is the truth. I never see these people at the shows, you may as well add VETO's name to that list because there isnt one on there that really participates at the shows on a regular basis that would make me feel comfortable making them President, so if you dont know whats going on whats around you on a regular basis, how can you even attempt to make decisions?? So I hope the people you mentioned in your last post for Presidency dont get to offended on this but I feel its the truth.

        The picture thing at the dinner will be great!! I have many to chose from- Won't be able to decide! Maybe we could have a "Guess Who" section!!

        I also want to add to Goldust's summary that there were a few very minor changes to the Bylaws that I feel do not amount to any big deal. The new and old committees will have their first meeting Oct.16 where, I hope, the officers will be elected and the committees will be decided upon. Time is running out if things are to be in place for the start of the 2002 horse show year.

        As for the PHA officer elections, please remember, you must be a paid adult member for the current year to be eligible to vote. Absentee ballots are available through Anne Aspinall.

          I must say that all members should take the time to get to the next meeting where there will be a vote . Apparently nominations will be taken from the floor before the vote is held . Please all interested persons eligible to vote make Nov 5 a date!!!!

              I have heard some whispers that there will be other candidates nominated from the floor at the next PHA meeting. Since I must cast an absentee ballot I would like to know who else is considering the president position. Otherwise I must choose between the two candidates listed. Is anyone else running?

                I believe you are correct. I have also heard there is someone else that may have been nominated last meeting and is pondering the thought of running. Absetee ballots I believe are going to be a problem because as brilyntrip stated, nomiations can be accepted that evening[nov.5th] If I hear of another official candidate I will post it immediatly. All who would like to vote with a absetee ballot must keep on top of this so you know all the candidates if it should come down to that. If you are going to have a choice, you should know ALL options.

                cdeleyer- is that a nomiation? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img] lol

                    It has just been brought to my attention that Karin Immerman was officially nominated at the past PHA meeting. The nomination was handed to Anne Aspinal who is the head of the nominating comittee.

                    Now your choices are officially:
                    Dick London
                    Hanna Ruttiman
                    Karin Immerman

                    Here is the forum to air your views to any of the candidates. Any comments.........?

                      Anne Aspinal--I'm not sure of wether she has an e-mail address, it seems I heard that she does, but I don't have it--TRC is in the book though, in Sagaponack....

                        I have Anne's e-mail address and if you would like it, you can e-mail me for it! I do not think she would be happy if it were plastered all over the internet!

                        I'm glad to see that this election has created so much interest. In the past, we were lucky to get just one person willing to take on each of the officer seats. The fact that there are 3 now running for El Presidente is exciting!!! But I think that is enough!!

                          Karen Immerman has some positive items in her resume. 1. She is a professional trainer.
                          2. She is a rated AHSA judge.
                          3. She has connections with the AHSA world. (A facet we need to keep up on the "big" show world.)
                          4. She is an active PHA member.

                            Well, I have been surfing other posts here and can not believe the amount of locals here on the threads.

                            Come on guys, nothing to say about the diner dance,[don't forget those pictures] horse show or maybe what spring clinic the PHA should have this year since we did not have one last year. We need everyones help so complaints are minimum this year.

                            Election day this year is quite important. Think about those 3 people and who you want to be in charge. Would any of the candidates be fine with you? Wendy2-really good points!!!!

                                May I be the first to prematurely congratulate you on your sure win situation. (Anyone out there taking bets on this race-LOL).

                                As far as the dinner dance, pictures sound like a great idea, how about the baloon man [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img] from 2 years ago. Seriously, I always liked when Country Fair would put up all the candids, and would love to see some of the old stuff (blown up really big).

                                My only request with regard to the dinner dance is PUT ME IN THE SMOKING SECTION [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] or just set me up in the lobby. Oh, and by the way, I know of one rider who is planning on making a [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img] statement in her mode of dress. Should be another interesting night.

                                  Actually, the funniest thing ever is if tables were set up in the smoking section that would be the busiest section of the night!
                                  Can anyone say SAMBUCA? And no Linda, not refering to the horse!!! It will help me get through any horrific fashion statements!!! Jane-we could go in our gothic outfits!!!

                                    Why are these things non-smoking anyway? I always thought that at private catered functions there was a choice. Who chose the non-smoking? Couldn't it be every man (woman) for themselves, and if anyone finds it offensive, couldn't they step outside for a change?

                                      I believe I lost that battle last year being a smoker myself to the big ceese of the PHA. Guess we should ask the new cadidates their view on this? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]
