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!

      My dear, I hope you can read this post. You are my friend but you are too far away for me to help you. I HAVE been where you are there is light. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, is true. I have admired you for several years now, you ARE my kind of people, and that ain't many. Please know I love you. I can and would take one of your babies. That's what friends do and I would do it for you.

        If everyone kinda already knows who she is, can someone just link the specific Giveaways ad, instead of a guessing game?

          This would be an excellent time to use the PM feature.

          Clearly "everyone" doesn't know, or people wouldn't be asking that question.

          I don't know who it is, but it would be nice to respect her privacy. She does not need the tiniest bit of additional stress right now.

          Best wishes to her, and huge thanks to those who are trying to help.

            DH and I just started discussing adding a horse. We are in Maine. No idea where these horses are bit if someone who knows more wants to PM me, there's a chance there might be space for one here.

              I believe the horses are in PA.

              And I think I've figured out who it is, based on the givaway info. The horses do seem very nice and I send lots of jingles and hugs to Iz.

                Izanalter, I have been thinking about you. I even woke up in the middle night thinking about you.
                In the OT thread you said " In the past, I have been described by friends and business associates as 'the strongest woman they know'."
                When you are fighting for the horses and rescuing them from the circumstances life has dealt them, you can either be a person's fiercest enemy or their strongest ally.

                Which one are you going to be for yourself?

                If you choose to be your own ally, you can get through this. There are many of your friends here to pledge their support and help you in whatever way you will accept.

                    Thank you for your kind thoughts and concern. Yes, I am needing to place some horses. I've actually been working at it for some time, but with the economy being what it is, and me being picky about making sure that the placements are appropriate and permanent, it has been a slow process. The horses are in SE PA. I have everything from yard art to competitive horses. They are all fat, shiny, and hairy.

                    Also, the PM page is formatting oddly, and the stupid Smartpack ad is over top of it, preventing me from reply to any PMs- anyone know how to fix that?

                    For the record, no one came and picked me up, I was at work when I got a very nice courteous call, and the fact that I was AT work seemed to satisty the caller.

                    I do not have any cats, and the dogs are safe. Thank you for your concern about them!

                      Iz, the COTH forums are no longer compatible with IE8 (I think that's the number), which is of course, the only one that works with Windows XP, blah, blah.

                      Download Google Chrome (it's free) and then use that as your browser. Yeah, I know, one MORE thing on your plate. But, I had to do it in order to reply to all the PMs yesterday, as yes, I was giving out which horses that I found on the giveaway of yours to people who asked. So, that's how I know, cuz I had the same problem.

                      Love,

                        OP, glad you've chimed in.

                        And, speaking of Google Chrome, one of their options/add-ons is AdBlock, or AdBlockPlus, both also free. When you download them, they get rid of the annoying streaming ads.

                        I'd pass along info to friends with stables up here about your horses, but it's not exactly close.

                        So many people here putting out arms to help. Hope you realize what good friends you have here, and that it isn't too burdensome that everyone worry about you.

                            Iza- I am local to you-within a half an hour.

                            Let me know if there is anything I can do to help. Even it it is just doing some barn chores or a cup of coffee.
                            I have a truck and trailer and am comfortable hauling fairly long distance- OH, WV, NY, NJ, VA, MD, DE etc... If you can find homes for your horses I can help you get them there.
                            Oh, well, clearly you're not thoroughly indoctrinated to COTH yet, because finger pointing and drawing conclusions are the cornerstones of this great online community. (Tidy Rabbit)

                              To solve the issue of the ad blocking pms- click on "Tools" at the top of your menu bar. Then click on "Compatability view", and unclick.

                                  IZ, glad you were able to check in. I am currently looking for a good pony or horse. We currently live in Florida. We are finally putting roots down and I am finally able to look.

                                      Those experience overlap with ads can also click the "compatibility view" icon, which looks like a piece of paper torn in half up by the URL field where our web address appears at the top of the page.
