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 for the update on Suzie Q.. but as FG said..,"clear as mud" in my head.. I thought the FB page had disappeared as mentioned here a while back and did not try to find it again... I have to make a file with all the FLF links!! And this is just for my personal interest as I am not in the market at all. But FL seems to have REALLY nice horses so it's fun to look at them!

    Hoping Suzie Q keeps improving. She is a very lucky horse!

    • Was just on FB and realized there are two separate FB pages, one for the new Finger Lakes Finest Thoroughbreds, Inc. and one for the Finger Lakes Trainers' List.

      I swear there was an older one, that I had "liked" and hence where I saw Suzie Q, but I guess that is no longer in existence?

        I published the first facebook page when I was president of FLF, Inc. I resigned from that organization. When I resigned the Incorporation remained an entity. Facebook pages must be set up by individuals and can not be transferred from one person to another, therefore I could not transfer that page to a flf board member and I had to delete that page per directions from the VP of FLF. When I was criticized for "hi-jacking" that page by another member of FLF I gave it back to them, along with the logo I drew. Then FLF, Inc. reported me to facebook for misusing their corporate material (the logo I drew which is based on my horse Forgotten Cat ) After that fiasco I took the page down and with it went the information about Susie.

        But, since I own Susie and I remain very active on the backside of Finger Lakes I created a new facebook page and continue to report about Susie and the horses I list from Finger Lakes there: http://https://www.facebook.com/#!/F...esTrainersList

        And the upshot for me is if I want to use my drawing of Forgotten Cat I have to go to court.

        So that should make everything clear as mud.

        PS Can anyone explain to me how to make links work? I can't for the life of me get then to actually link. Many thanks

          Type in some text and then highlight the sentence or phrase you want as a link. Click on the symbol that has a little globe with a metal chain link and then paste/type in the address into that field. The address will need an "http://" part to work. Hopefully that helps

          • Wait, I'm confused. If you drew the logo for the corporation while acting as president of the corporation, and the corporation then adopted it as its logo and used it, why would you get to take the company's logo with you when you resign?

            If Steve Jobs had resigned from Apple he wouldn't get to take the striped apple with him. The striped apple belongs to the company.

            • Unless ownership of the logo had been transferred via contract to the organization, either prior to Incorporation or after, BY SUZANNE, then she still owns it.

              And why would "the organization" want to keep it anyway? If there was obviously a fracture of some sort and the logo is a likeness of the former president's own horse. It's not like use of the logo was wide-spread and there was any sort of brand identity involved. I've only seen the logo twice, once on this thread, and then recently on the new FB page.

              Anyway. At the end of the day all that matters are the horses. Best of luck to both parties.

                and yes, I had liked this page before...

                • In the Spring of 2012 most of the members of FLF attended the Western New york Horse Council Equifest. We met many OTTB friends who were familiar with Finger Lakes Finest Thoroughbreds. We had so many requests for more info and literature we decided to sketch out a logo. Buffalo Colleen sketched out that logo on a napkin based on the image of Forgotton Cat. Rhymes W/Orange paid for the graphics. That napkin still exsists!

                  • What will donations be used for? The listings have always been solely a listing service... will the new nonprofit be taking in horses and getting them ready for sale/adoption?

                    • I realize the discussion about the logo is splitting hairs to a degree and I'm clearly on the outside, but being a graphic designer who deals with creative property all the time, I find it interesting.

                      Especially because it clearly represents a major disconnect between the parties involved that I suspect goes beyond logo usage.

                      I hope that disconnect has not reached the backside, as it'd be a shame to see the integrity of the service diminished.

                        All are scanned in my computer and I can clarify this statement if I wish. RhymesW/Orange paid for a totally different graphic which I assumed you would use. Instead you used the one I drew. Careful with the truth please.

                          Well said . I hope everyone can work toward the good of the horses and set egos aside.

                            The same friend of mine that found the horses we rescued last December just bought Nicoletti. We took my truck and trailer this morning and he is safely tucked in her barn with plans to train him as a hunter.

                            I will post more later, I have to run.

                                  That makes me so happy! I spoke with SEPowell today about him. He sounds like a wonderful guy. Best of luck to him and his new owner!

                                    Yes, however, I think it is reasonable to ask about board logistics. Especially for those of us who have followed the listings for years and supported its mission. Not to mention the FLF is now a 501c3 and taking donations... it is fair to ask what the mission and vision is in that sense.
