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!

                Ah, e e cummings. That would explain why I have had trouble making sense of that user name.

                Disclaimer: My name isn't dressagetraks. Though I do ride dressage and do have Trakehners.

                I am an English major and really have extensively studied literature, poetry included. However, e e cummings never really lit my fire. I'm a Shakespeare kinda gal.

                  Scenario 2:
                  Grataan falsely accused, comes here and freaks out, we all go...woah, that's really weird, and then there's popcorn...oh, and more wine.

                  Scenario 3:
                  Grataan NOT falsely accused, comes here and freaks out, add additional popcorn and wine.

                  Scenario 4:
                  Grataan NOT falsely accused, comes here and says "Yeah, okay, I pretended" and we all go "huh, interesting" and forgive Grataan (and yes, this has happened on this board). Then we all have wine.

                  Scenario 5:
                  Grataan NOT falsely accused, goes away quietly, alters come to defend said person and more wine shows up.

                  Either way, there's wine and popcorn involved.
                  Well, as long as there's wine and popcorn, it's ok then.

                  And for the record, my name is cheval convert but it is no longer true. I no longer own a cheval canadien, I now own a "Rastafarian". (That's a percheron/fjord pmu horse that has a very laid back attitude and would look great in beads and dreadlocks.)

                    Ok... I can't even begin to picture a perch/fjord cross in my head, other than to think OMG that has to be ADORABLE!!! Pics of the fjordafarian please!!!

                      But I hate popcorn. It gets stuck in my teeth and sometimes those little shardy bits lodge themselves in my throat and I can't get them out!

                          • I used to call my horse my horse before he actually was my horse because I wanted him to become my horse.

                            WC means something naughty from my naughty younger days that I shan't reveal

                            Oh and I really am a vet even though I have always claimed I'm not.

                            So...phew I feel better for getting that off my chest.

They have been pretending to be an equine vet on this board and apparently they are not a vet, but a small animal vet tech. See the thread in Off Course.

                                I hope Gully will be ok.
                                That post was in response to this reply:

                                I'll put extra long jingly curb chains on everyone I ride today.

                                  And Jumpin_Horses is real and has a horse that can jump. And buck. And run around with her donkey pals and roll in mud. I even know where she lives. Mwahaha haaaa....(my horses used to live there)

                                  Oh, and I can't think of M's screen name, but I've met her horse and her and we boarded briefly at the same place here in VA.

                                  Who else can I confirm existence of? LOL
                                  Me, Me!
                                  We have talked on the phone, so I know you are probably real.

                                  My odd "accent" posting reflects my real heavy accent in person.

                                  I come back after about an hour and so many more pages already?

                                  I guess none of us want to be called "impostors", oh no.
                                  Those of us not in the public eye are here incognito, because we come from the witness protection program.

                                      You COULD just be a fake Bluey/Merry and have been faking the accent to boot! Who KNOWS?!?!?!

                                      Can anyone else confirm your physical existence? LOL

                                      Kidding of course. Yes, I'll vouch for you. But now, who will vouch for me? I guess I do have a lot of board buddies in my wedding pics.
                                      A good horseman doesn't have to tell anyone...the horse already knows.

                                      Might be a reason, never an excuse...

                                        It is kinda sad when people are so enveloped in their online "life" that they stretch or fabricate the truth.... I used to be surprised when these kinds of stories popped up but after all the drama I've seen on parenting/mommy forums, that is really, really bizarre, COTH doesn't surprise me so much anymore!!
