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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

                          Move of belongings = complete.
                          Well sort of.
                          The movers met me at my storage unit and they emptied that. At my room on the farm I'm leaving, some stuff didn't fit in their truck. In retrospect it MIGHT have been less troublesome to pay an extra month's storage than deal with my soon-to-be-ex-landord about the fact that the room isn't empty yet. But I've told him (and for now he agrees) I'm not dealing with it till next weekend. The remaining stuff should all fit in my pick-up... if I want extra assurance I could bring the horse trailer up next weekend and be SURE to have enough room for the "leftovers".

                          And the movers went a different route than I did from old farm to new, and I was waiting for them (and paying for them) about an hour before they finally arrived. I had thought of telling them what route I was going to take (minor highways rather than major) but we departed the old farm at 11:00 AM and my GPS was saying the time difference was negligible (in fact the way I was going was SUPPOSED to take 2-3 minutes longer).

                          It cost an arm and a leg but it was an arm and a leg I had planned on so... done deal. Tomorrow I head down with the cats!
                          Shall I tell you what I find beautiful about you? You are at your very best when things are worst.

                            Congrats on the upcoming move! Jingling that all goes smoothly for you!

                            If you are moving plates yourself, one easy way to do it is get some Styrofoam disposable plates, and put one in between each plate and stack in a box. For glasses, put a coffee filter between each, and stack, and lay on their sides in a box, and use towels/anything soft (even clothing) to cushion them. When you arrive, you don't have to wash newspaper off plates/glasses, and you can reuse the plates/coffee filters.
                            Old liquor store boxes with the inserts work well for moving tall glasses also. Most liquor stores give them away for free.

                              Jetsmom, the plates and filters....brilliant. Have used the liquor boxes forever.
                              Getting ready to get some new flooring and have to pack up a couple of china type cabinets. Been stashing newspaper, but no more...plates it is.

                                Good luck JoZ- I admire how strong you've been. Is your work closer or further away now?

                                  I believe she works from home.

                                  Yes, Best wishes for a not too tiring weekend. Happy Dances for the kitties and horses. And you also!

                                    I'm considerably further from my office but they are in agreement that I can continue to work from home with even fewer days in the office. I have not felt comfortable leaving the motel and cats to go to the office so to be honest I can't remember the last time I went in! I am the consummate work-at-homer though with years of experience at it and I tend to tip the work/life balance in favor of work (I have been working every night while I'm on PTO to move!). I am happy to do that for the benefits of working from home. So it's pretty much a win-win. Yesterday one of my team of three was let go (deservedly) so I'd like to think my value just went up by a third or half or something!

                                    Leaving the cats at the new place today just about killed me. I know it's because I'm tired and have had about two months worth of one stress after another. I'm sure they'll be fine. One of them was pretty freaked out; the other two were cautiously investigating. I can't WAIT to rejoin them on Sunday! I have a few things I need to do in the old area tomorrow -- if they are accomplished early (one involves transporting a hard-to-load horse for a friend) I will seriously consider doing yet another 4-hour round trip tomorrow afternoon to visit the cats and make sure they are ok. It would probably be better all around if I don't have that opportunity! But I can't rule it out. We've gotten through so much, I don't want something to go wrong on the next-to-last day in limbo.
                                    Shall I tell you what I find beautiful about you? You are at your very best when things are worst.

                                        Good luck! :-)
                                        Ok, just asking about work because of the two hour trip, hoping it would be better (being nosy I suppose- sorry) :-).
                                        I am considering a big move myself...north towns to south towns, increasing my drive to work a little. Watching intensely taking notes!
