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!

                  Oh, and before I begin, I am so honored to have been mentioned here. I'd like to thank my parents and the Academy . . . [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]. I'm sure that I'm going to leave so many awesome people out while I'm completing this thing, and I apologize for that in advance - every single one of you is fantastic.

                  &lt;List copyright VTRider&gt;
                  1. Your Favorite Thread of the Year -
                  You really just can't beat Beaver Drilling [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]. Little does that company know how much joy they have brought to the gutter-minded among us.
                  2. Thread that has impacted you the most -
                  Probably that post of Khobstetter's about the old lady who got into a car accident just outside her barn. At the risk of sounding like a character in some made-for-tv-movie, it reminded me just how precious and fragile life is.
                  3. Thread that just wouldn't die -
                  I know this is taking a step back in time, but I thought that Musical Jumper travesty was never going to just go the heck away.
                  4. Thread that you wish had never died -
                  Again, this is going back a ways, but the one I thought was the most hilarious thing ever was that "I Killed the Easter Bunny" one. Good Lawd, that's funny stuff.
                  5. Topic that has given you re-occuring nightmares -
                  Congratulations, Musical Jumper. You are coming up a lot more than I would have originally thought you would.
                  6. Person who posts for no reason but to see thei name in lights -
                  Now, that's just silly. WHO on this board would do something like THAT [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]?
                  7. Best username -
                  I love dogchushu, Lord Helpus, and sbt78lw deserves a mention, just 'cause she made me wonder what the heck hers meant for the better part of a year before finally breaking down and asking.
                  8. Most annoying username -
                  I can't think of one offhand, but I do know there are a few out there that I have to keep flipping screens to reply to properly, as they're so complicated.
                  9. Most inspirational poster -
                  That will always be Cactuskate.
                  10. Poster in most need of visiting a sanitarium -
                  ErinB. But she's crazy in a good way, that girl!
                  11. Poster whose threads you look most forward to reading -
                  ErinB, Heidi, Medievalist, Luisa (she's brand new, but trust me, she's had more awesome experiences and even more amazing photos than she's letting on!), and those from Bentley, of course [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img].
                  12. Poster who you want to come back as in your enxt life -
                  Medievalist - I would love to have lived in France, drinking wine, and riding horses all day long.
                  13. Poster who you most want to meet in person -
                  For some reason, I would really like to meet Chanda. She just always sounds so easy to get along with in her posts.
                  14. Clique that you most want to be a member of -
                  I think I'm in a couple, but I've never been much of a cliquey gal, myself.
                  15. Poster whose horse you would jump in front of a train for -
                  Either Medievalist's amazing little bay or Chanda's gorgeous Chase.
                  16. Poster that always puts you in a good mood -
                  Bentley! She's always so cheerful. And ErinB.
                  17. Most Valuable Friend/s that you have gained as a result of this BB -
                  Cayley and Biarritz first met me through this BB and found my barn through it, and they're great people. I've also met Halfhalt and Melzy, and while I only spoke to them briefly, I'd love to meet them in person again (or, in Melzy's case, for the first time, as I only spoke to her on the phone) and get to know them better!
                  18. Most memorable event from the BB this year -
                  Again, Cactuskate . . .
                  19. Poster who you want to "vote off the island -
                  I love each and every one of the happy, shiny little faces that frequent this board!
                  20. Thing you would change most about the BB -
                  I'm with those that wanted to put the trolls into a rocket headed for the sun or whatever [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img].
                  21. What you like best about the BB -
                  As long as I remember, it's been a wonderful place to come and vent or just tell a silly story or ask for advice from a group of wonderful people.
                  22. Has any - one/thing/topic - changed the way you live?
                  Yeah - getting kicked in the head has made me into one of the Helmet Nazis!
                  23. In general - how was 2002 for you?
                  Ave Maria, what a lousy year. Roll on 2003 - I'm ready for life to start getting a little better! I want to graduate and unleash myself on the working world!

                      10. Poster in most need of visiting a sanitarium -anyone who feels they have to post under an alter - drives me nuts..... hmmmm, maybe I should be checking myself in as well [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]

                      11. Poster whose threads you look most forward to reading - Kachoo's - since she sometimes mentions moi [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]Honestly though as well as Susie's amazing yarns I love Willem's, Robby's, Fred's, Medievalists, and a whole bunch of others that I'll remember as soon as this is posted.

                      16. Poster that always puts you in a good mood - Kachoo, Robbie Johnson, Bumpkin, gosh darn it, there are so many but I can't think under pressure!

                      17. Most Valuable Friend/s that you have gained as a result of this BB - Well if I breed my mare next year it will be because of this board! So I thank Bumpkin for 'introducing' me to Bentleys' sire's owners.

                      19. Poster who you want to "vote off the island - I think he's already swimming, but that 'Bob' seemed like a troublemaker

                      20. Thing you would change most about the BB -
                      Grumpy people suck! But nobody's perfect huh? I just hate it when they make it personal....
                      21. What you like best about the BB - the vast wealth of knowledge and experience (I diagnosed my friend's horse with 'shivers' and she looked at me like I was God! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif[/img]

                      22. Has any - one/thing/topic - changed the way you live? Khobstetter's car accident story made me appreciate life. And the rainbow bridge stories made me certain of a horsie afterlife. (Can't wait to see my old boy Irish)

                      23. In general - how was 2002 for you?
                      Well I didn't have a horse to show for the first time in 10 years, I lost the ride on the horse I loved more than anything, and bought a two year old on my credit card! Definitely not at all what I was expecting! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]Oh, and I moved to Australia, just a minor change of course......did I mention it was 28celsius here today [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img]

                      That was fun!!!

                            All of Willem's, I think. They ALWAYS make me smile.

                            2. Thread that has impacted you the most -

                            Aiden, Willow. It takes a lot to make me cry, and these threads had tears streaming down my face in broad daylight.

                            3. Thread that just wouldn't die -

                            That one about Anky in the dressage forum. As my daughter would say, "Man, that was RANDOM!"

                            4. Thread that you wish had never died -

                            Hmmm. Can't think of one.

                            5. Topic that has given you re-occuring nightmares -

                            Any about those Pennsylvania horse auctions

                            6. Person who posts for no reason but to see thei name in lights -

                            ME!

                            7. Best username -

                            Too many to choose from, sorry!

                            8. Most annoying username -

                            No opinion there.

                            9. Most inspirational poster -

                            (In no particular order) Fred. Robby. RolexH. Coreene. There are some incredibly talented writers on this board. ErinB. Erin... I could go on and on.

                            10. Poster in most need of visiting a sanitarium -

                            Not a particular poster, more of a type: Those who post just to stir the pot, they need to be booted.

                            11. Poster whose threads you look most forward to reading -

                            WILLEM!!!

                            12. Poster who you want to come back as in your enxt life -

                            Coreene. She has such a special relationship with Willem, I envy that. Robby seems a pretty cool person, too.

                            13. Poster who you most want to meet in person -

                            Robby, though he'd probably never speak to me if he ever saw my shaggy beast.

                            14. Clique that you most want to be a member of -

                            I'm not a joiner, thanks anyway.

                            15. Poster whose horse you would jump in front of a train for -

                            Coreene. And FlowerPower. Sounds like her horse has had enough troubles for all of us.

                            16. Poster that always puts you in a good mood -

                            17. Most Valuable Friend/s that you have gained as a result of this BB -

                            Hmmmm. Friend? There have been lots of folks I would love to meet, but no real relationships outside the board.

                            18. Most memorable event from the BB this year -

                            Aiden's journey.

                            Too bad we don't have an alert system for those people that post nasty remarks just to rile things up (What are they called, anyway? My mind is a blank.)

                            Aiden's threads have ABSOLUTELY changed the way I feel about and treat my family.

                            23. In general - how was 2002 for you?

                            I'm here. I'm healthy. I didn't have any astronomical vet bills. My family is in good health. I'm not complaining!
