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'm feeling pretty *^*&&^ this week.

      I was thinking that if someone "popular" had posted this I would probably have several responses, but since I'm not popular, I'll probably get a few... and then someone else will post this in a few weeks and they will have 10 pages. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

            23. In general - how was 2002 for you?

            EEWWWWWWWWWWWWW. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

                  I won't bother to answer the whole list- just wanted to say that my vote for most droolworthy horse is Jade. I think I might actually jump in front of a train for her... *drool* [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                    I think the reason no one replied earlier was that they were all asleep, dear!!

                    First let me start off by saying that Elizabeth is the topmost BB'er on my list due mostly to her utter coolness, supreme sense of humor, and her first name being my middle.

                    21. What you like best about the BB - How willing everyone is to help others who are, in essence, total strangers. It blows me away sometimes.

                    22. Has any - one/thing/topic - changed the way you live? CactusKate has definitely made me rethink a lot of things. I still think about her quite a bit.

                    23. In general - how was 2002 for you? Better than 2001.

                        She stopped riding. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img] So did I, but unlike some people, I'm not too cool to post here anymore. . .

                              1. Your Favorite Thread of the Year -
                              HN73s thread about the TB Auction in Rixeyville. Made me cry but was great to see everyone come together.

                              2. Thread that has impacted you the most - Coreene's thread about the California Horse Protection/San Jacinto mess. Losing Supper to these idiots was horrible but I appreciate knowing what happened. It hurts but its better to know.

                              3. Thread that just wouldn't die - I'll probably get flamed but ugh, that stupid weight one. That's all I am going to say.

                              6. Person who posts for no reason but to see thei name in lights -
                              I haven't really come across anyone like this.

                              7. Best username - Dementia 13. It came to me in a flash of divine inspiration.

                              8. Most annoying username - the ones that are hard to read.

                              9. Most inspirational poster - Reginapony. I also really enjoy Liverpool, jr and findeight's advice. They seem so sensible and always have good information.


                              10. Poster in most need of visiting a sanitarium - dementia 13 sometimes.

                              11. Poster whose threads you look most forward to reading - See #9.


                              12. Poster who you want to come back as in your enxt life - I would like to be C. Boylen - she seems like she has a very cool life!

                              13. Poster who you most want to meet in person - Fred, and probably Robby. I think Robby and I would get along great after we slapped each other around for a moment.

                              14. Clique that you most want to be a member of - Not really into the group thing.

                              15. Poster whose horse you would jump in front of a train for -
                              I don't know! I haven't met too many of the others horses.

                              16. Poster that always puts you in a good mood - Moesha, miniwelsh, Fairweather and wingsie

                              17. Most Valuable Friend/s that you have gained as a result of this BB -
                              Too many to name but I am really glad that cfc and I became friends and she was so kind to let me borrow Picasso. I love that horse!

                              18. Most memorable event from the BB this year - definitely the Aiden auction.

                              19. Poster who you want to "vote off the island - nobody really - well maybe that one crazy woman from zone 2 but I think she's a troll anyway.

                              20. Thing you would change most about the BB - nothing really - maybe I'd have a troll patrol so the little toads would get shot down as soon as they posted their little nasty comments.

                              21. What you like best about the BB - almost all of the people, even the ones I don't always agree with. Some have even gotten me to change my opinion!

                              22. Has any - one/thing/topic - changed the way you live?
                              Yes but I can't talk about it.

                              23. In general - how was 2002 for you?
                              Pretty bad, but one wonderful thing that came out of it was changing barns. The old was was great, but the new one is much better for my needs and my new trainer is the most wonderful, patient guy I have ever come across!
