    IMPORTANT INFORMATION

    For a few days in a row, there have been numerous TOS violations on this case. While it may seem harmless to some, we are getting dozens of complaints from other members who want to discuss this case constructively. From now on, there will be more time outs issued to those who repeatedly choose to ignore our guidelines.

    Here are just some of the problems that occur over and over:

    * Baiting /Trolling / Inciting Conflict: There are times when a member violates our rules by trying to upset other members. Please use your ALERT feature when this happens and DO NOT RESPOND TO THE POSTS. When a moderator is able to deal with the problem, it takes a LOT less time when he/she doesn't have to also deal with all the responses to the offense. Plus, it makes the one who initially started the conflict keep on going.

    * Inviting/Baiting: This is when someone says they have information they can't share on the forum. Then someone else asks for them to PM the information. It's like be at a party and whispering secrets to each other and is not allowed here. If you have something private to share, then send a private message and don't announce it on the public thread.

    * Dreams/Visions: WS doesn't condone dreams and visions and psychic information. There are plenty of sites out there on the WWW that do, but we are not one of them. We have not found that information to be helpful in solving cases.

    * Announcing alerts: Don't announce that you are alerting. Just do your part and make the alert and move on.

    * Sleuthing guidelines: We don’t permit any posts discussing the sleuthing of non-players. Considering there have been no suspects or POI’s named to date, that means pretty much no one is permitted to be sleuthed, except Mickey, This is done to protect the innocent. Think about it – suppose your son (or daughter) gave your next door neighbor a ride to the grocery store, dropped them off with the understanding that they had a ride home. That neighbor disappears and is now missing. Do you want hundreds of people sleuthing your background? Knowing where you live, work, your kid’s names, ages, where they go to school? Would you like every skeleton in your closet to be shaken and posted on a public forum for the world to see? It is not right and not fair to innocent people. Most of these people are only a friend or acquaintance by sheer circumstance. They do not deserve the public scrutiny. It is completely understandable for Law Enforcement to take this approach. However, after their investigation, if they find no basis for suspicion and clear these people, they don’t make their records public either. Simply put, it just ain’t cool to do and we don’t do it here at Websleuths.

    * Sleuthing other members: It doesn't matter what they are doing here, we do NOT sleuth other members. Anonymity is taken very seriously on Websleuths. If this continues, a member could lose their posting privileges permanently

    * Derogatory Name Changes to Case Players/General Name Calling: is not allowed here.

    * “Off-Topic” Posts: Off-Topic posts are subject to editing or removal at administrative discretion, and without notification. Members that continuously post off topic may have their posting privileges suspended. This thread is for discussion of locating Mickey Shunick.

    * Verified Posters, Insiders & Locals:

    [ame="http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=106653"]See this Link to the Verified Posters: Professionals and Insiders.[/ame]


    We don’t verify every local who follows any case. You are welcome to post photos & maps of the area, post your knowledge about specific areas (e.g., directions, locations, weather conditions, etc..) so we can all have a better understanding. What you cannot do is post information relayed to you by another person (e.g., “I went on a volunteer search last week & another person I met told me “blah blah blah” <insert rumor of your choice> and she said she got it from a co-worker of Mickey’s sister. That is RUMOR and we do not participate in any rumor chasing events here.

    An insider is usually someone with direct knowledge. Often a family member or a close friend. Those we do verify. Keep in mind no one is obligated to become verified; we completely respect and understand those who choose not to do so. All we ask is that you not post inside information claiming it as fact.

    That all said, we are very careful when verifying members. However, we cannot endorse the content of their posts nor assert as to the truth of what is being stated. It is up to the reader to decide that for themselves. We’re simply letting you know that an Administrator or Owner has spoken with this person, gathered data to investigate that they are who they say they are. We do this to protect the integrity of the information posted here.

    None of these rules are new and a more detailed explanation of them can be found here:

    [ame="http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?p=7825556#post7825556"] LINK -Rules Etiquette & Information - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community[/ame]

    Everyone is now being held responsible for knowing the rules.


    Please know that Moderators are here to help. We realize it takes a bit to learn the WS policies. We've all been there ourselves. At the bottom of the Missing Forum homepage you will see a list of "Forum Leaders". Please feel free to contact the moderator of your choice with any questions you may have. We will be happy to help you learn the ropes around here!

    bumping up Salem's warning:

    TIMEOUTS ARE BEING ISSUED RIGHT NOW FOR ALL THOSE THAT IGNORED BESSIE'S WARNING POST AT 6:11 p.m. last night. If you are on timeout, you know why.

    This is really drastic guys - but Mods have repeatedly warned to let the conversation about the PIs go. It is not pertinent and it derails the thread.

    Any PI discussion - it does not matter if you are for or against, if you are defending or villifying. Doesn't matter. TOs are now being issued.

    Just a note/helpful hint for those who may not know...

    If you have a question for a mod, you can easily contact them directly by scrolling down and going to View Forum Leaders at which point you will be able to see which mods are online and you can then PM them your question. I have learned mods are very accessible and kind and helpful. If you are unsure if you can post something, the best idea is to contact them directly and ask!!!!!! If your post is not within TOS, they will let you know.

    Wow, I'm confused by all these timeouts. I'm new to WS and don't understand what we can or can't say on here? Do PI's actively discuss cases on here? Wouldn't that be harmful to the open cases of missing persons. Please explain to me what is the correct protocol of discussion here on WS. Thanks!

    I brought this question over from the last thread... all the rules are in the first several posts on every thread and the terms of service (long version) can be found on the main forum page.

    hope this helps

    whew

    My quote button was missing and I thought I was timed out. I was sure I stayed within the rules. Then I realized I was on a closed thread.

    I have a very busy evening, but will be back later to see where things stand.

    edit: thanx to the mods

    I lean more and more everyday to the idea that she left on her own and will come back when she is ready.

    Speaking of the WB exit, I had an emergency stop there in the early 1990s and it is definetly not a place to be at night cuz its spooky enough in the daylight much less at night. I can see why people dump trash there altho there used to be "NO DUMPING" signs there. Can't figure why anyone would have a reason to go there except to fish.
