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.

    I'd be very interested in contributing several recipes. I'll even take preparation and final product pictures.

    Is there a format that will be decided upon? Count me in!

      I'm in!!! I'm the queen of the 30 minute meals - cooking delicious "semi-homemade" meals in 30 minutes!!! I would love to contribute some recipes and I would be glad to take digital pictures of preparation and final product.


      • #23
        So is this really going to happen if we get enough recipes? What kind of format do the recipes need to be submitted in? Who are we submitting them to? Sorry if I asked questions that have already been answered, I just want to be sure.


        • #24
          I want to buy this! I love the idea of a cd with photos of say preparation, final product, happy people chowing down on it, suggestions for wines to accompany the dish and favorite wine makers...Luvinfoofy, thanks for searching for fish in water tanks!

            I *think* we can do this if a few more people pitch in. I can't do it by myself, but if a few of us can take different roles, I think it would work out. Maybe we can shoot for finishing before Christmas? (Is that pushing it?) I've never done anything like this so I'm sure we'll have to lean on some other people's expertise.

            Any ideas for categories?

            Other suggestions?


            • #26
              My sister made a family cookbook. I wasn't anything fancy, just some word shopped pages with some graphis in a spiral bound notebook covered in plastic. They probaby cost a buck to make. Just an idea instead of a big fancy published book.

              I have some great dessert recipes to contribute, as well!


              • #27
                I am the queen of desserts! I'd definately contribute! Many recipies. I will, I will!

                  1.I would love to help if that works for anyone.

                  2.I think we would need to have a HORSE TREAT category.

                    I was involved in putting together a cook book for The American Spaniel Club as a fund raiser for our Cocker Rescue Groups throughout the Country. The prison printing is an awsome idea and would NOT ecnourage adding photo's as it add to the cost:

                    Let's see.... Salmon Cheesecake, Hot'N Crunchy Mango Chutney Chicken, Shorwood Chicken, Parrot Rum Caribbean Chicken ( I'm sick of chicken )Spinach Salad Flambe, Crab Pizza, Goium Matzo Ball Soup, Wedding Soup... okay i'll stop

                            Well, then, would you be willing (since you been there/done that) to step up and help us get this printed? Now's the time to do it so we can have it for the Holidays.

                            I'd put in: Maltaschen Casserole (a take off on an ancient German ravioli receipe), South Carolina Peach Cobbler, Susan's Super Summar Salad, World's Best Rosemary Chicken, etc., etc., etc.!

                                    Okay, here's one of my favorites:

                                    Thai Coconut-Ginger Shrimp

                                    Be sure you buy unsweetened coconut milk (not the kind used for piña coladas), and add enough red pepper flakes to accent the creamy sauce.

                                    2 tablespoons peanut oil
                                    1/2 small onion, finely chopped
                                    1 tablespoon peeled and grated fresh ginger
                                    3 garlic cloves, pushed through a press
                                    1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes (or more, to taste)
                                    2 tomatoes, seeded and chopped
                                    2/3 cup unsweetened coconut milk
                                    2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined
                                    Salt and pepper
                                    3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

                                    1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook onion 3 minutes, until softened. Stir in ginger, garlic, and red pepper flakes; cook 1 minute more. Add tomatoes and coconut milk. Cook 10 minutes or until mixture thickens.
                                    2. Add shrimp to skillet. Cook 3-4 minutes, until cooked through. Add salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Sprinkle with cilantro before serving over rice.

                                    Serve with a very cold Gewurztraminer.

                                      We did this as a fund raiser for my daughter's co-op pre-school. 15 years later, it is still my favorite cookbook. There are companies out there that produce them. I'd love to share my Turkey Tettrazini, my husband's unbelievable Lobster Stew and my favorite gourmet bran mash recipes. I'd also buy the cookbooks for Christmas gifts.

                                        somewhat confused (this is very normal)

                                        are we actually doing this? if so, how/when

                                        either way how does one go about purchasing


                                        • #40
                                          I'm interested in buying one, maybe contributing a recipe (I have to see if my mom has a good one), and if you'd like, I would be willing to talk to my niece's theraputic riding program ... If they were interested, and COTH was interested, I'd be more then happy to sell the cookbooks to whoever was interested and I know the members of the therapy program would do the same ... I go to a community college, work @ a hospital, and my parents own a few shops, I'm sure we could get quite a few sold, even if it wasn't for the theraputic program here ... Let me know ... I offered my services for CBER magnets, but no one ever picked up on them, so I'll offer here ... The more states we could sell to the better off it'll be ...

                                          Oh, and, just a thought, but I think maybe COTH members who submit articles or for the cover or something, should include photos of them with their animals ... 1 photo per person ... We did this for my pony club years ago and it turned out wonderful ... Of course, any COTH'er that has an OTTB that was rescued from the track or adopted through CANTER should definately include a photo if we're trying to support CANTER at all through this ...

                                          If we can get the jump on this and get things rolling, it would be GREAT christmas gifts ...
