You can now leave shout outs at the top of the page that other members will see. There is only room for one shout out at a time, so you can only leave a shout out if there isn't one there already. Also, in order to prevent any one member from being the only one who's shout outs appear, after leaving a shout out you have to wait until at least one other member leaves a shout out before leaving another one.
Shout outs are just meant to be something fun, like your favorite horse related quote, what you're up to at the moment, lyrics to your favorite song, or even a friendly message to another member. When you don't see a shout out at the top of the page, you can visit the Carrot Kitchen to leave a shout out. Of course, you'll need to have some carrots on hand.
Anyone who uses a shout out to advertise or promote anything, uses profanity in a shout out, or says anything that antagonizes another member in a shout out will be banned. In other words, shout outs are meant for positive, good natured, fun messages, and nothing else. We'll be keeping an eye on the shout outs members leave for anything inappropriate, but we ask that you help us by starting a thread about any inappropriate shout outs you may see in the Talk to the Team Forum.
Members need to have several hundred posts before being able to leave a shout out. If you find you don't have enough posts to leave a shout out, please do not go around making trivial posts just to up your post count or you will be banned.
