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!

  • Why does the "Post Reply" button not work for me since the upgrade?

    Basically what the title says. I have tried to look through the threads on new issues since the upgrade, but honestly, I don't have time to sit and dig through pages and pages...and the digging I have done turns up nothing.

    I can't just click on "post reply" I either have to use the tiny (GRRRR) quick reply box or use the "Reply with Quote" option...which then pops up in the tiny quick reply box. (Double GRRRR). If I'm trying to multiple quote, it gets to be a real pain as I have to go back to the last post I selected to click the reply with quote button...or just choose a random post and then delete it from the tiny (did I say it was tiny? IT's tiny ) quick reply box. Sigh.

    Because it's broken.

    The post reply button at the TOP of the page does work, though

    You can also click "go advanced" to take your quick reply to the full reply window.

    And you can drag the lower right corner of the quick reply box to make it bigger.

      Doesn't work for anyone, I don't think, one of the glitches they are working on.

      There is a HELP forum to repot that, or mention it to the Moderator.

      I end up posting and then editing what I could not see in the little box.

          I'm with Frank. I have to hover over the very top/right edge of the blue "Post Reply" box to get it to work.

              Heh. And that must be why it sometimes works for me but most of the time it does not.

              Thanks for the responses. I just hadn't seen anything on it in the help threads but it sounds like I just missed it.

                While we're talking about replies, I can't seem to multi-quote without cutting and pasting anymore. Have to click the lower right box of each chosen one, and then figure out the last box I'm choosing and then hit "reply with quote". Can't just click each lower right, then go advanced. It's tedious to me. Or another solution?

                  Well, you can click the multi quote for each and then click "post reply" either by using the button at the top of the page, or by finding the narrow area on the lower button that works (top edge, roughly the middle third.) The "post reply" button takes you to the advanced editing window. (NOT the "post quick reply" button, though.)

                      Mine works on my iPad as I just quoted these to. Had done a multi quote since new updates so tried it now. I just click the little quote symbol at the bottom of each post I want to quote then hit reply with quote

                        Aha! Same problem, more or less. I'd multi-quote, then not be able to hit the lower reply button. But works with the top one.
                        Thanks!

                          Actually, another COTHer clued me in. Incidentally, I'm running Firefox.

                            I've noticed that if you wait until "Auto Saved" appears at the bottom of the reply box, then you can click Post Quick Reply, and it will post correctly.

                            The one that irritates me is when I try to edit, and sometimes it won't work with save. My solution when it starts is to copy the entire posting, then click Refresh, and if it didn't post correctly I click edit again, then paste and eliminate the duplicate parts, then it usually posts correctly when I click Save Changes and it works.

                              Yepper, been broken since the upgrade.

                              Not sure if it has fallen to the back burner as a not something that really needs fixing or if it is not fixable. Seems strange that it is still not working.

                                Well, it works if you hold your tongue just right and put the curser on the one magical spot right above the tab.
                                Thanks to whoever pointed that out, as that tab had not worked at all for me also.

                                Yeah, that is a small glitch, but it should also be easy to correct in the page's format?

                                  They have known about this small glitch since before the updates were launched. It was pointed out during the beta testing. That is why I suggest it might not be such an easy fix.
