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!

  • IT WAS GREAT! Georgia COTHers Get-Together -- See Page 6 for Picture

    After carefully tallying the votes, checking for hanging/dangling chads and recounting for accuracy, the decision has been made:

    DAY: Saturday
    DATE: July 8, 2006
    TIME: 2 pm
    PLACE: Joe's Crab Shack
    2868 Chapel Hill Road, Douglasville, GA (right off I-20)

    See map here....:

    http://local.google.com/local?f=q&hl...,1.373291&om=1

    Now, since we all know how wretched gas prices are, let's do the carpool (CP) thing. Each driver would set their gas-share fee at the time of load up, to be divided between the ride-ees.

    I volunteer for the West side (Cobb, Paulding, Bartow, Alabama). I can take four more in my Escape. I am also the designated driver since I cannot stand alcohol (try and stifle your snickers please ) So, if you're on this side of the Georgia world, PM me and I'll get you on the list. If I get more than four ride-ees, I'll holler for another vee-hickle/driver.

    Now we just need one person to help coordinate/organize the carpools from the north, south and the east sides respectively. Raise your hand and take one step forward please.

    For the southside folks, if you're very nice and say "please" maybe you can get BeastieSlave to be the designated CP coordinator. wink, wink, nudge, nudge...

    So, if you'd like to come join us, please let us know/RSVP within this thread as soon as possible (those who already "voted" don't worry...I have you on the list).

    So ya'll come on down, set a spell on the porch (sorta), have a cold sweet tea or Coke-cola and let's put real names with real faces. Oh, and don't forget your pictures!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Bring pictures of our horses? Cool!

    I'll "call out" some more COTHers: my summer semester (5 weeks of Physics II) starts June 27th, but I will still be there! I can spare one day a week for fun!

    Unfortunately I can't do much for the carpool, everything I own is a 2 seater. Guess I planned on living alone a long time! LOL! Not to mention where I live, in the sticks!

      Wooohooo!!

      I'll be coming up from way south Saturday morning. I'll be cruising through Columbus (I-185) on my way north and will happily pick up COTH hitchhikers along the way. The problem is, I won't be going back until Sunday evening since I have to take kid #2 to camp Sunday. I won't have any place to keep you either, but if you have a place to stay and want a ride, maybe I can help.

      I can also take riders north from the Peachtree City area along I-85 and return them when the gathering is over. I think Freebird! will be riding along so that leaves two seats open in the Tahoe
      Y'all ain't right!

        I'm game to give this a try, tho it's a bit of a hike for me. If anyone else from western NC (Asheville-ish or even Tryon area) wants to do a road trip, send me a PT. I could carry three others in my good-mileage vehicle.

        I'm out of town and don't have access to my regular email (which is probably quite messed up with spam by now), but will be back on Tuesday (6/20) and should be back in regular contact then or shortly thereafter. Probably won't be back here regularly before that, either.

                  Does Joe's Crab Shack have other stuff besides just seafood? I don't do seafood, fish, lobster, crabs, or any of that stuff.

                              A very good friend of mine has taken up the other seat for the D'ville visit. She's not a member here, but she's heard me talk about here often, so it's just a matter of time.

                              BTW guys, I talked with the BO tonight about the trail ride in the fall. She's excited as can be, especially when I mentioned there were some "older" ladies that would be coming (she's 57, and an absolute doll!). The property I mentioned is about 500 acres. I need to measure it off and see trail-wise if it would be a big enough trail ride. It would of course be WELL marked off, I can't do margaritas AND navigate! What does everyone vote on there (not the maggies, I'm doing that anyway)? I also wanted to see if you guys might be interested in the trail ride being a benefit for St. Judes Hospital??? Tell me what you guys think!

                                I don't have my July schedule yet, but if I'm able to go, you can ride with me, tnscvaga, since you do live right around the corner from me

                                BTW, did you bring your mare and foal home yet?

                                  I doubt I can offer to carpool since I live 5 minutes from the restaurant but I can pick up anyone who lives less than five minutes from it? Hmmm.

                                  Either way, I'll be there! Looking forward to meeting everyone
