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 hope the plan stays for Friday. Looks like we've got enough folks to effect a 'take over' of a section of Mosby's.

        I've found a flight which gets me into Dulles at 2:30ish, leaving Sunday at 7:00pm. We have a date for Stallion Perusing, Wingsy! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

        Kryswyn, think I can stuff a JR into my carry-on? And I'll have you know I'm tall for my race. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

        Can't wait to meet and share cocktails with all of you!

You will adore the trip out to Albemarle, right through Culpeper, Charlottesville and all the Rita Mae Brown countryside!

                  Possibly the two most beautiful posters on the board in the same bar? THANK GOD Alex will be there to act as the official COTH bouncer!

                  BTW, Heidi, did we mention that GoDogGo is tall for his race? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] and YES you can fit a JR under the seat in front of you in a Sherpa bag.

                    OMG, Kryswyn, don't tempt me! That's one cute pup - one who'd fit quite nicely in my Vuitton purse with room to spare.

                    My flight's booked! Hehehe...it's no longer an idle threat to corrupt the occasionally-sweet Virginians but a promise! Be afraid y'all, be very afraid. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                    BTW, what's the anticipated weather at this time of year - should I wear my shearling or fall jacket?

                      But be prepared for temps in the 50s & 60's. We're having a rather unusual winter down here this year! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                      The only thing you can count on, is no matter what the weather immediatlely prior to the Casanova races in February, Race Day will be COLD AND RAINY! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

                        Beezer has recently decided he would rather be king of his own castle than a prince in Tinker's palace. This is NOT permitted by Queen Kryswyn! Therefore, cute as he is, as loving as he is, Mordred, I mean Beezer [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] is looking for a new kingdom and roost to rule.

                        He's a rough coat, so he'd do very well north of the border! And you can race him at the Jack Russell Terrier Club of Canada events! He's very fast, and if I kept him, I'd definately race him in the exhibition races.

                              Ok folks, what is the real date and time so I can mark it on my calender.

                              Heidi, please bring pics of Sumo-Boy. I normally don;t like children but yours is fascinating me!!

                                Heidi and Duffy! Email me - I can be at Dulles at 2:30 [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

                                How much luggage can a tiny Canadian bring? I have the pickup [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

                                Who gets Heidi Friday night - Saturday - Sunday? The stallion showing is just this side of Charlottesville from 2-4. A direct drive straight to Dulles would have Heidi back there by 6:00 (maybe) on Sunday.

                                Oh, Boy - we will be having fun this weekend!

                                KS - I inquired and ALL the stallions, 5 TBs as well as the ponies will be shown. Do you wish to attend?

                                      WIngsy, I've lost your home email addy but have sent the flight info. to your office email addy. My return flight to Toronto, BTW, leaves Dulles at 7:05pm - imagine I should be at the airport 5:30ish.

                                      I assume I'll be staying with the lovely Ms. Duffy Friday and/or Saturday night.

                                      KS - yes! Shall bring pictures of animals, two and four-legged. Will I recognize you, BTW, by the glow of your tiara, like a beacon of light emanating from a lighthouse, leading one to safety? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                                      Creseida and Kryswyn, I'm sure Wingsy and I will be there by 5:30 as my plane lands at 2:30pm. Given my fear of flying, and my fear antidote (imbibing many vodka/tonics), I may have a head start on the cocktails. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] Wingsy, just look for a little Asian woman staggering off the plane, shouting, "I love you all!" to the flight crew.

                                          Will be at Dulles in the dually with a sign in the window that says HEIDI!!!! (Unless I get there before 2:30 and am inside the terminal holding said sign aloft and making a scene!)

                                          Kryswyn, the stallion showing is at Albemarle and is from 2-4. Breezymeadow is coming, too and I RSVP'd for 4 people myself (hoping three others will come along!)

                                          Oh boy, time to make nametags!

                                          Mosby's better not be having an employees only party this Friday! Fairweather - I hope you can make it along with the rest of the MD bunch. We can give you the group hug you need so very much [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]
