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!

          It would be nice to see more diversity in body type, but honestly those don't look that bad. There's not cartoon cleavage hanging out or anything. I've seen worse in the toy aisle.

              As an unashamed pony fan and artist what bothered me the most was that they all wore essentially the same thing despite their personalities being so different. Way more than this 'sexy' concept. Kids know cartoon characters are not like real people in that aspect. BUT they also know that Applejack in a skirt (rather than jeans which are much more practical) and Rainbow Dash looking so girly are NOT congruent with their personalities.

              The ponies different personalities were developed to make them relatable to every type of girl and now they all look the same.

              ETA: I suppose they all looked the same before, but there was a whole episode devoted to how what they wore was so different to each of them even as ponies.

                          I think it's meant to appeal to the "bronies". I'm sorry, but no one will ever convince me that there's nothing creepy about grown-ass men getting all "squeeee" over cartoons targeted for 4-8 year old girls.

                            The current incarnation of the My Little Pony series (which is the 4th) is from Lauren Faust, who also known for The Powerpuff Girls and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. Her shows are always creative and entertaining to both children and adults and I think Fox News is probably just miffed by female lead characters.

                              With the horse buying public aging and little new blood coming in I wonder if the industry will start courting the Brony crowd?

                              The Bronies I saw did look like Steve Wozniac and I would not one to see one in breeches* until they tone up and slim down but the industry is shrinking and if a trainer who specializes in beginners set up a booth they could make a fortune.

                              If the Bronies hauled their hineys away from the computer and onto a living horse they might shape up into real horsemen in a couple of years.

                              From what I see Bronies are young college educated men who are not out to prove how macho they are and seem to have empathy for horses.

                              * note to self- invent human blinker/goggles so the rider can't see the new students, maybe to keep them from looking down too. Its better than having riders stab their eyeballs out with hoofpicks after seeing a breeched Brony in a first lesson
                              A pussycat of a horse with a chewed off tail won the triple crown, The Cubs won the world series and Trump won the Presidency.
                              Don't tell me 'It can't be done.'

                                LOL, not all of the bronies are the stereotypical looser, living in mom's basement!
                                They might not be buff with butts you could bounce quarters off, but often enough slender enough to pull off the tights thing rather well.

                                However....girls are not above hormonal rages, especially when a drop of testosterone is put into the shark tank of the barn!

                                But seriously, girlyfied ponies will not drag guys to the barn. It will only drag them to the toy store. besides, the hard core fans do not like what they did with their ponies! Yep, Applejack in a mini skirt? Totally out of character!

                                    Bronies aren't gaga over MLP because of the horse factor.

                                    Straight from a brony's mouth, why they like MLP:

                                    1. nostalgia - a lot of watched other cartoons such as the Powerpuff Girls and Foster's and this show is from the same producer.
                                    2. character - the ponies in G4 aren't the flat, boring characters from the previous generations. They're relatable, endearing ponies that have meaningful developments and the creators show that in a very entertaining way.
                                    3. wonderful, meticulous animation and voice acting - a lot of studios these days are lazy, but the guys working for mlp slave over these episodes. rarely do they rely on still frames and blurry motion effects. and the voice actors bring out each personality well.
                                    4. a staff that reaches out to the brony community (they give the bronies a nod every once in a while ex. making derpy hooves canon)
                                    5. humor - it is no understatement to say the show is very funny. it's full of good, clean laughs that you don't see much more these days.
                                    6. adorableness - you knew this word was going to come up, but it's no lie.
                                    7. music - daniel ingram, the composer of the show, makes really nice musical theatre and acoustic pop songs.
                                    8. rejection of stereotypes - there are a bunch of things you'd expect to see in a girls show such as the excessive amount of pink or nonsensical drivel about boys and clothing. the show is much more gender-neutral than one would expect.
                                    9. fanbase - possibly the biggest factor of them all. we love being a part of something bigger, and the fanbase offers moral support, an audience for your own creative pursuits, people to laugh with and talk to, and so much entertainment. I mean there is so much talent I can't even begin to list all of the artists and composers I love.

                                    ETA: Good info here from KYM about the brony/pegasister subculture: http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/subcul...dship-is-magic

                                    It has virtually nothing to do with love of real horses.

                                        No, sorry I should have clarified. I pulled that off a brony microblog. Besides I'm a chick so I'd be called a pegasister. Love MLPFiM though, I cannot lie. Not so sure I'm going to dig Equestria Girls but I'll give it a shot.
