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!

    I was Bob. Atleast that was my screename.

    I don't care that you put that there, but I just want to know why. I never had any problems with any of you, that I can remember.

    Maybe the memorable event from this year that whoever put Bob, meant Fred' grey horse that died?

      I don't recall Bob either.

      My favourite thread was of course

      Mr Bumpkin's Helmet Theory

      Should be the thread that saved the most lives I guess hahaha

        You all missed Bob?

        About a month ago Bob. He showed up on the dressage forum and the hunting forum. Caused quit a stir on the dressage forum.

        I don't think you are the same Bob. You certainly don't have his tone.

        There can't be two of them. OHHHHH PLEASE don't let there be two of them. SWOOOONNNN

          RzB,

          You're not the "Bob" they're talking about. There was another "Bob" that I saw posting on the hunting and dressage forums. He was a piece of work! (Check out the "To frock or not to frock" thread in Hunting for some classic Bob!)

          But you're great!

              This still leaves me wondering who Ryan is these days!

              Terribly sorry for the confusion, RzB. Bob upset the proverbial apple cart in the dressage forum, as Maria mentioned. An example of Bob's charm can be found in this thread: BTV.

                Did you guys see some newbie on the hunting thread inviting BOB to come back. That we 'needed' his insightful posts. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

                Edited to say the above was just agreeing with him. But I KNOW I read somewhere that someone wanted him to return.

                  Rzb- ryan, I wasn't referring to you, I don't think. This was a later "Bob" one that stirred up a bunch of trouble on the dressage board (and foxhunting too?).

                  No offense meant Ryan!!! I want you to stay on the island!!! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                        I'd like to thank the members of the BB academy, my director, the producers, Home Box Office, all the trainers I had along the way, my wonderful horses...

                        6. Person who posts for no reason but to see their name in lights – none
                        7. Best username – They’re all great and everyone has a reason for them, whether it’s real name or fun name or horse name or silly name.
                        8. Most annoying username – See Number 7
                        9. Most inspirational poster – Cactuskate
                        10. Poster in most need of visiting a sanitarium – Colin (but I had the BEST time with her at dinner earlier this year, along with Chef, Taryn and N2Jumpers – we had a nice loud dinner at Javier’s Cantina in Laguna Beach and we loffed it!)
                        11. Poster whose threads you look most forward to reading – Robby Johnson and Dublin
                        12. Poster who you want to come back as in your next life – Jamie Taylor, so that I can ride as well as this very talented BBer

                        17. Most Valuable Friend/s that you have gained as a result of this BB – That’s like saying “Mama, who is your favorite child?” I have made many wonderful friends as a result of this BB; Dublin and Mr. Dublin came down in March and we spent a great day in HB; Akrogirl, AAJumper and Cactuskate met up with Taryn and me at The Oaks last year and it was a gas; Chef and I have lunch; Countingstrides and I are at the same barn; Taryn was here and sadly moved to Riverside; Pinkerdo is my best friend; Canyonoak is a longtime email buddy who I had the great honor of meeting last week; Merry and I met up again after 20+ years at my barn last year; Beezer and I seem destined to NEVER meet even though I drive past her office EVERY DAY; Autumn Hill Farm who is helping with Willem’s website and from whom I must buy a foal one day because they are divine; Khobstetter for meeting up with again, 30+ years after taking my first English lessons from her; I just loff every BBer I correspond with – there is a very long list and I am mad about all of you - every one I post with, bla bla bla.

                        19. Poster who you want to "vote off the island – No one. Even if there are some with which I have occasional differences, the privilege of posting on this BB is a gift and all the components of it are more of the same gift.

                        21. What you like best about the BB – ALL OF YOU
                        22. Has any - one/thing/topic - changed the way you live? MargaretF has me finding more and more opportunities for helping abused / neglected / homeless / in need horses.
                        23. In general - how was 2002 for you? By all rights, I should have been dead after my fall. Every day is a gift. To share this with such a wonderful group of people is an honor.

                          Not going to list them all but the thread titled "I killed the Easter Bunny" had me rolling on the floor laughing, come to think about it, I still chuckle when I think about it... but I do feel bad for the poor bunny and the driver!<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

                          Aw, shucks. That would be me.

                          Geez, that was in spring of 2001....I have recovered (for the most part) psychologically, but the bunny bashing station wagon couldn't get over it's guilt and blew to pieces on the highway this past August. Still, it's some consolation to know that we've been mentioned a couple times here. It's nice to leave a legacy.

                              *sniff* I feel SO loved. I can't believe both Sister and Maria believe I need to be in a sanitarium and that they would still want to visit me (since they said they'd want to meet me) once I've been put away.

                                    Velvet, we would most certainly want to come visit you. Afterall, look at all the nice things we can do to you, errrr for you while your hands are tied behind you back. White is definatly you color.

                                    Sister, are you going to Rolex? I am supposed to with joliemom, as long as I have the $'s. Velvet is going to be there pending her release from the sanitarium. I thought I read that she would be going in style. Piggybacking on Reed's back.

I think about Baby Aiden a lot. khobstetter's post about the dying woman in the crashed car really made me think. And SQW's posts about Mandarin made me realize I am not alone in mourning the loss of my horse, who was VERY special to me.
                                      23. In general - how was 2002 for you? Is it 2003 yet?

                                        Yes, the reservations have been made, tickets will be ordered as soon as they are available, boss has been duly warned of my absence for a week, money will be saved (lots and lots of money!).

                                        I MUST meet both you, Maria, and Joliemom! I've got plans for stalking Velvet over Christmas. Muahahahahahaha!

                                        And yes, RAyers can catch a ride with either one of us, but I think he and Velvet would make such a cute couple! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
