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!

  • Crazy Crayola Trainer: Does Anyone Know the Outcome?

    Hello!
    I've been stuck inside quite a bit lately due to the bad weather and a head cold. I've been keeping myself entertained by reading old COTH trainwreck threads.

    So far I've read the entire AZG thread (mad props to Sonata *bows respectfully); the entire Arabian Jumper++++++++ thread (7 - 12 houseguests ); the Heather Hill threads; the Churchill Hunt Club threads; the barn help allegedly defecating in the manure pile thread; and I just finished the Crazy Crayola Trainer thread.

    I really want to know what happened with the CCTL situation. Usually my Google-fu is decent. I just spent twenty minutes Googling every combination of words that I could think of to find out what happened with that case. I even tried using Sade, Sadie, Kate, and Katie in case the OP was using an alias for her horse. No luck.

    Question:
    Does anyone know what ended up happening in the CCTL situation?

    This is the thread:
    http://www.chronofhorse.com/forum/sh...highlight=Kade

    Anywhoodle, thank you all for your time.

    Best,
    Amber

    You poor thing!!! I miss Arabian Jumper myself, but not enough to slog back through the thread. I usually find myself in kind of a daze after I read an entire train wreck. Add cold medicine and I'd probably hallucinate little jumpers and house guests.

      RR's website is still up; he's a lovely saintly little guy.

      That thread kind of makes me, as an Arabian owner, want to issue an apology to humanity on behalf of the breed. *headdesk*

        I now accidentally own an Arabian and I love her. Her other half is Saddlebred, so I love her even more. Oh, and she can probably jump 3' but hasn't won anything. Should we pool resources and take out an obnoxious full page ad about it?

          Post the Arabian Jumper thread link please.
          It sounds entertaining.

          If you want a rollercoaster of emotions I suggest the Old Chestnut Mare thread.

            I love NSH horses -the best of both breeds!

            I think that you should -but make sure that you don't forget the text bubbles.

            I saw Vee jump over the mini gelding once when they were playing. The mini is 8 hh, so Vee can jump at least 32 inches. I think that Vee is a future Grand Prix jumper despite being only 14.1 hh.

            Okay, I need to stop with the snark so I don't run afoul of the mods.

                I missed that one (holy crap, I just tried to read that thread but I got swallowed up instead) but some other epic ones (I came along around 2000, so I am pretty old) were the Aiden thread, the one posted by someone who I think was an alter, but it was entitled "How Many Mexicans do you Bring to a Horse Show) pretty much anything that was posted by this woman named Colin, and the Chanter thread, which was just plain strange. Musical Jumper was sad - horrible and sad.

                  Hi!
                  I just found the link to the "How many Mexicans do you bring to a horse show" thread: http://www.chronofhorse.com/forum/sh...rooms+oct+2000

                  I'm going to read it on my break. It looks like a classic trainwreck of a thread.

                  BTW, I'm second-generation Mexican-American. My grandpa and my great-grandparents came here to pick strawberries; he earned his citizenship by fighting in WWII. My BS is in Social Sciences. So this thread should be a doozy!

                    Yes, but Always Funny had a happy ending! I hope she is doing OK. I keep sending my "board" paypal each month to her.

                    And no, we all never found out who the participants in the CCT thread were, darn it. But all the crayons are still around on the board, ready to act when needed.

                            Ulysmom,
                            I know, right?! That thread had everything: my (as in property) Mexicans; a house in Cancun; a golf cart; a teenaged OP; and a teenaged houseguest BFF. The other COTH'ers rocked in how they responded to OP and her BFF. I will have to give the OP credit for having the maturity to understand that what she wrote was Not Cool and to apologize.

                            I just finished reading the "Lunging in Dover" thread. ¡Ay de mi! I feel so hungover. That thread really did have a leaky sailboat. It also had a horse only CelliePride CP could ride, and many threats of lawsuits, not to mention Donny and the gnomes. Then, after all that, it got really weird, and sad, when CP calmly stated that in 1994 her mother completed suicide by self-immolation to protest disability discrimination.

                              Sorry I haven't updated, the Funny one just polished off another tub of Stud Muffins. We will replace it tomorrow at our weekly grain run.She is doing great, the old bird just rolled through her 31st birthday January 10. She again thanks you for the Stud Muffin!

                                That thread was almost 14 years ago and the OP was 14 at the time. I'd be curious how her outlook on life has changed (or not) as she has matured into an adult. I can only assume she has developed a much more tolerant and respectful view of those different than herself. It seemed that the COTHers on that thread may have made a positive impact and helped her look outside the highly polished bubble in which she was being raised. I so hope that's the case.

                                  I was thinking the same thing. She seemed like a good kid, just very sheltered.
