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!

  • Premium Members- No Pics now, just links??

    When I post a photo now it doesn't show the actual photo, it has a link with the photo name that you can click on and it will pull up to pic see it. I LOVED being able to post and see other people's posts of little photos in their posts. Is this just with the computers I've been on? Maybe this is mentioned somewhere but I didn't see it. Thanks!

    I mentioned this problem several days a go in the other thread. The mods say it is an issue they are going to address, but so far it still is not working. Being able to post the thumbnails to my post is the my main reward for supporting this forum with a premium membership. Now that you have to click a link to my pictures, it really is not much different than just posting a link to my picture on another site. I hope they are able to to get it corrected soon. I also miss seeing other premium members pictures right in their post.

      I agree with you 100%. There's really no point to pay to post a link. We can do that for free. It's so fun to be able to scroll through and see photos people post of their horses and success. Really hope this gets fixed soon.

        Definitely on the fix list -- was supposed to be addressed on the beta site, but the fix may not have migrated to the live one.

            What happened to "Forum Jump"? It was the way I navigated back to the thread after reading a post.

            IMO, this "new" COTH is a lot worse than the old one. Fonts/spacing of the thread titles makes them hard to read. Colors make the page look bizarre and hurt my eyes. Views and Reply's are all messed up.

            And still no "NEXT PAGE" button! We lost it in the last "new" COTH. Why can't we get it back?

            Still no spell check?

            Seems like we are regressing everytime the BB changes. Is it because the changes are all due to a cost proble and you keep trying to produce the BB for less $$$? I can understand that, I guess. But, even so, the areas that are "improved" are not improvements at all.

              Any update on this fix? I am sure there was a lot to do with the transition but it still seems like we can only post a link, even though a thumbnail shows up when you are attaching the photo.

                Go to the bottom of the page, just above the reply box and to the right of the blue Post Reply button. It says "Quick Navigation" and then there's a button with the name of the forum you're in. Click that and you should get a drop drown box with all the forums. It's the same as the old Forim Jump, just renamed and moved a bit.

                  Except that it is only there when you are IN a thread. The old one was there even when you were not in a specific thread.

                    The thumbnail issue should be fixed. I just found some old thumbnails that we appearing properly, though the developers said the fix might not be on the live site until tonight.

                    Let us know if you still have any trouble with it.

                    Our plan for this phase was to get the forum's software upgraded to a newer version and get everything working properly, and give folks a few new features to play with. After we finish debugging, we'll turn our attention to getting our universal log-in system in place, so you can use one log-in to access all parts of the site -- classifieds, forums, magazine subscription, main site, etc.

                    After that is fixed, we'll look at whether there are any other general features we want to try to implement, along with brainstorming about our Premium memberships and what improvements we can make there in terms of features/offerings.

                    Adding a "NEXT" button was on the list for the future since that isn't a default feature we can just turn on. I've already asked the developers about trying to implement a forum jump system that was more similar to the last one (where it'll take you back to the main forum you were reading, like the "go" button did, instead of the "top" button, which just takes you to the top of the page you're on.) Again, this change was something that came along with the software upgrade (which we HAD to institute), so if we want to change it, we have to actually modify the code (and pay someone to do that ), so it's not just an option we chose to change.

                    Thanks for your input and understanding as we work on things!

                      Did admin post and delete on this thread? when i got to the forums, I noticed this thread and saw where admin had posted (today) the pictures for premium members problem had been fixed.

                      However, the picture they included in their post was not visible to me. When I clicked on it, I just got a continuing 'loading' message. So i cancelled that, then went about browsing the forums.

                      I noticed the same problem in the Hunter/Jumper forum and thought maybe I needed to be signed in. (I don't use the rememberr me feature). I signed in and went back to the post in H/J. Still no picture. So, I come back to this thead to say the problem does not seem to be fixed, and the post from admin is gone.

                      Did admin post prematurely, or have I discovered another bug?

                        I am getting the same message when I just added pictures to my post and then tried to view them. Also the links still show Xs on them. Glad to see the issue in now being addressed now. Can't wait till the bugs are all worked out.

                          Any news on the picture front??? It still is not working correctly. I see the HGS also changed their format about the same time COTH did. It is a very similar set up on how to add pictures and seems to be working well. It adds the pictures right in to the body of the post.

                            To give an idea of how their layout works once you upload the pictures there, here is my thread I posted there, similar to the one I posted in the HJ section of COTH.

                              Can you give some more detail about the problem you're experiencing? I went to your thread about your daughter and could see the thumbnail pictures without a problem.

                              Thanks!
