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!

  • No Reinstatement Store Now Open

    Amongst all of the talk of bracelets and shirts, I went ahead and opend a Cafe Press store with No Reinstatement wear in it. It does not have the bracelets, but I will be ordering some.

    All of the CP stuff is set at their price (no mark up)so there is NO profit. In the event a ton of stuff should sell and it generates a bonus of sorts, it is set to go to Snowbird's organization and Non Profit Number. When I order the bracelets, I will send the financials there as well.
    (I will order 20 at a time, unless I know people want more, and just have people send a SASE with their money and keep track of it-obviously I will only charge what the bracelets cost-duh-and that info can be viewed by anyone at any time)

    And yes, the rumors are true, there is indeed a No Reinstatement thong within the Bo Reinstatement Fashion Collection. I felt it was only fair since there were boxers offered.v (WTDers, make sure these, either thongs or boxers, hang out of your pants while in public for the full effect!)

    If there is anything you want but do not see, let me know and I will see if they offer it!

      Excellent work, Molly! (I'm back: no way am I missing both of Lamacq's shows in one day!)

      I'll take some pics of Avery modeling the hat as soon as it gets here.

      All you No Reinstatement folks - doesn't this exciting new development give you a wonderful opportunity to REPOST the petition information on other horsey forums??

        I think Avery should model the thong

        I did an article for our barn newsletter and then posted a part of that on another local BB I belong to and it looks like several from the BB signed the petition.

        I already posted on my barn's BB about the store and will do it on the other local BB shortly--

          Avery?!! Heck, he's such an old Victorian prude he doesn't even like people watching him pee!

          I submit though, that there's more than one way to find out how Big that Dawg really is!

            Don't you just love Cafe Press?

            Too bad the thong doesn't come in black. I get a kick out of how they actually show you the crotch of it -- well, I guess it isn't exactly the crotch.

            I'm going to get the low-rise TS so I can wear it.

            Great job on this. I'm going to buy something but I'm not quite sure what just yet.

                Wow, my logo looks so official. ;-)

                I'll have to figure out which one to get.

                      It's at the top of each page.

                      I don't think Lori B. & I were thinking in terms of merch when Lori was kind enough to design it. Wonder if there's any way to make it bigger?? (to repeat - I'm graphically illiterate)...

                            if Lori made it bigger we could it on the backs of some of the sweatshirts, but I do not think we need it much bigger for the pocket areas of the T's etc.

                                You are actually buying from cafe press-they provide the storefront and merchandise and do the logo-

                                Now if we wanted, we could hike up the prices on things and get a profit, which I did not do. The payee info is Snowbird and her Non Profit Tax ID...so just go about as if you were ordering from someplace online-my only part is making the logo fit and adding it to the merchandise for display and putting the storefront together. Cafe Press gets the money for the merchandise and they do the shipping-the only way "we" make money is if a ton of merchandise sells and then we get a "bonus", whatever that might be, and that would go to Snowbird for the No Rein. fund.

                                  Quick question -- has anyone done any press on the petition/merchandise yet? If not, I'd be happy to draft a brief release and send it out......just let me know!

                                      My daughter and I will be wearing our bracelets at the upcoming Lexington (VA) show. She got a couple of her friends to sign and give their email addresses on the hard copy of the petition I had at the show this past weekend. We'll be bringing bracelets for them to wear at Lexington as well. The show secretaries let me put it (hard copy of petition) on a counter there. Unfortunately, someone else decided to put in on a shelf under the counter where it couldn't be seen. I don't have any idea who did that.

                                      I thought I'd do an email sign-up to bring to the Lexington show. That way, I can email the online petition to interested people.

                                        Will do......If we want to go out on the AHP "horsey wire" I'll need to announce it as my doing pro bono work for the group, which I'm also happy to do as I'm NOT afraid to have my name on this effort at all. Of course, since the Phelps group et all regularly release on there, it could be interesting for business to say the least...but hey, that's why I've deliberately stayed small, so I COULD pick and choose clients and take moral stands...

                                        What I can do - if the group agrees - is a version for AHP that will have all the basic info along with a statement that I/my company am donating time pro bono to the cause and a quick quote....likely "my" info WON'T get used since I'll make it deliberately boring ;-) but the info on the effort may be picked up. Then I'll also do just a No Reinstatement group release that anyone can use -- I'll use myself as the media contact for the ones I send out, but feel free to put YOUR contact info there instead!

                                        To get started, I'd like to properly credit those who got the ball rolling, by name and (if desired) affiliation (farm, equestrian interests, etc) -- you can PT me or send an email to my business addy <gkazimir@prrightnow.com>.

                                        Thanks! - Gina
