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!

  • Posts getting mixed up--Mods??

    Sorry if this is in the wrong section, but is anyone else having problems with posts getting put in out of order? I noticed it first with the Marestare thread but I just posted on another thread and it put my post in as the original and moved the first post down. What's going on??

      This happens when you are responding to a thread. The last post someone submits appears as the first post under "Topic Review" but once you submit your post the original poster's thread reappears with the comments from other people beneath it. Does that make sense?

        Check your settings. You can set it so new posts appear on top (I have it set that way) or on the bottom.

          It's not in topic review. It's in the actual thread. Like in this one: Two COTH members Grand Prix jumping thread. I was not the OP in this thread, but my post got put as the first one.

            Could it be possible that your post timestamp is taken from your computer clock rather than an internal BB clock? Therefore moving it up?

                  I don't think so. Go take a look at the original Marestare thread. Around page 10, you'll see posts from right before she foaled and posts interspersed through talking about the colt. That's when I first noticed it and it wasn't just me it was happening to. I figured then that it was just b/c so many of us were trying to post at the same time, but the thread that I referenced above wasn't busy, it just did it for no reason. Hopefully the mods will take a look at this and let us know.

                    BUMP! It did it again on the Jingles for the $700 Pony thread. I even changed the time on the CP a couple times and tried it, and it still was doing it.
                    Edited to say that it also just did it on this thread in the dressage forum: http://chronicleforums.com/Forum/sho...=1#post1920309

                      Yes this is happening to me.

                      Also when I post in a thread it is NOT moving to the top of the forum.... I posted a new thread on Off Course and some people replied so I replied back and now the thread isn't showing up on Off Course for me AT ALL but if I go to the main forum page and it's the most recently updated thread I can link to it through there. And when I do open it, other people's replies to me are above my original post...

                        I think I just figured this out. In the I LOFF my horse thread, the BB tagged War Admiral's post as 10 PM rather than 10 AM. So then, when I posted at 2 pm, it put my post above her's, even though it was actually several hours after hers. Could this be a glitch in the BB?

                          Well, I just posted on hoser1's spade-shaped feet thread, and not only did my post end up at the top, but I got credit for starting the thread!

                            I think the Chronicle's date stamp was messed up, if you look at some of the posts, it says Oct 11. Today is the 10th.

                              Yep, definitely something to do with the date/timestamp. It just happened to me here. The post directly below mine was the original post, and the one below that was the only other post in the thread when I posted. Now my post is above those two, and a couple of other posts are above mine.

                              I noticed a week or so ago that all the times were about an hour off, and checked that my time settings on the forum were correct (they were - GMT -5 hours). I thought maybe it had something to do with the fact that not everyone in the world switches off DST at the same time, but now I wonder if it was the beginning of some other sort of problem

                              We'll see what time it says I posted this - by my watch, it's 2:33 pm EDT, October 10.

                                This is bizarre. On a thread in the Dressage forum, my post appears as #1, and I wasn't even the thread starter. All I did is reply. Posts are mixed up all over the place.

                                    ok, I'm not nuts. I even changed my options around for my time/date stamp and my order of new posts. Didn't help.

                                      My posts are now jumping halfways up the thread and the threads are all out of sequence.

                                        Same here - a thread I started like an hour ago is down on page two below LOCKED posts that were there BEFORE I posted it.
