There have been a couple of instances where a member has made an account with "HA" in their name. While it is very welcome when a player takes the initiative to want to better things on the forums, making accounts like this can lead to confusion and misinformation.

It is (now) against the rules to impersonate or provide the impression that a member is in any way involved or connected to the site in an official capacity. Therefore, User Names containing HA, Horse Academy, Academy or any variation, are prohibited from use by a member as to avoid any and all confusion, unless the NAME makes it clear that they are not official (example: Volunteer HA Helper; Unofficial Academy blah-blah). While sigs may say they are unofficial, not everyone will read them, and new members often do a search based on names, not a sig.

Anyone found in violation will be contacted by a forum mod.

Any questions, feel free to PM me or any forum moderator.

Thank you.
