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!

BUG With IE7?

  • BUG With IE7?

    Have any other Internet explorer 7 users found that the mouse wheel does not work to scroll up/down on the pages on this site? The wheel functions correctly on all the other sites I visit. I uninstalled IE7 just to test this theory, and was able to use the wheel again on the COTH board.
    Never realized until now how dependent I’ve become on that #$@%! Mouse wheel. Especially when trying to navigate through a 30+page trainwreck.

    I don't have that problem, but I have had a problem with the site crashing if I try to scroll down on a thread I have just opened using the arrow keys. If I hit page down or use the mouse it does not crash. I can use the arrow keys on the home page and the forum pages, and I can use the arrow keys if I have scrolled down on a thread by some other means (mouse or page down). I do have Internet Explorer, but I don't know what version

    Anyone have any thoughts?

      I have IE 7 and don't have any problems with using my mouse wheel to scroll up or down to view threads. I also haven't had the problem with the site crashing using the up and down arrow keys or at least not yet.

        ok maybe it's just thesettings on my pc

        But it's weird that the problem is not on ALL websites. I looked at the mouse settings on the control panel, but the only option to change the wheel behavior is how many lines = one click of the wheel. Any ideas on what else I can check?

          Are you using the forums with the frame ad banner at the top of the page? Could it have something to do with the way IE7 deals with frames? Perhaps a bug, seeing as the software is fairly new? That would explain why other websites seem to handle it okay.

            Yes, I am. Is there an alternative version of these forums, that does not use the frame ad banner?

              Yes there is an alternative version that doesn't use the ad banner and here is the link: http://www.chronicleforums.com/Forum/index.php

                Show Gypsy,

                I have the EXACT SAME PROBLEM!!! We are twins!!! You are not alone, nor are you imagining things!!!

                I crash on a page by page basis unless I hit the mouse button before hitting the down arrow.

                Just to compare:

                I am using AOL 9.0 SE on a DELL laptop.
                This is the only place anything like this happens.

                Show gypsy, I am not good at checking back on these things. If you find out what the problem is, would you be so kind as to send me a PM? I will do the same for you.

                As an aside, several days ago, my DEL key would only work sporadically. But it has been OK since then.

                As another aside: I used to be able to save H/J, Off Course, SHB, etc as Favorites; each one had a separate URL. Now everything just shows up as www.chronicleforums.com/forum/ no matter where I am inside the site. Is that what is happening to everyone?

                  Start with the URL that Tom posted above, or else when you find a thread you wish to bookmark, right click on it and "Open in new window" instead of just clicking straight on it. The problem is because of the ad being in a frame, so your browser address bar never 'sees' the address of the pages loading in the bottom portion.

                  The crashing problem may be somewhat related... if the new page loads and the top frame (ie the ad) is selected/active by default, when you arrow down there is nowhere for that section of the page to go. By clicking with the mouse you are likely activating/selecting the bottom portion of the page where there is enough content to scroll.

                    I have this problem as well, both at home and at work. At home, I don't have the banner ads, and at work I do. Both are running Internet Explorer. Has anyone come up with a solution (or even a reason)?

                        Thanks VB, that link solved the prob (at least for now) YES I HAVE IT TOO!

                        Problem is I have it at home on IE6 and at work on IE7. It started almost the same day so I think it must be some update that COTH made to their software because this is the only website I have problems with
