    Regarding social networks

    Regarding facebook,twitter, and myspace you can link but do not cut and paste. But the goal is to really only link to those that are directly linked to a case.

    IOW, we don't want to post to someone's mother, brother, employer, milkman , or postal carrier just because they know the main player. It just gets too invasive and half the time we are not even sure it is the right person. When a post starts out, I found 5 people with this name do you you think any of these are [insert person here]? that is not a good thing.

    It will often be up to mod discretion as to who can and cannot be linked, but the general rule of thumb is if they are named in the media specifically as having some role or are being questioned or have information then you are probably safe to link. No screen caps and no cutting and pasting. If a social media is set to private and you get in the back way and post what you see, that is not a good thing!Private means private.
    Just imagine if is you if you cannot decide and you shoulod be able to figure out if it is ok.

    You are free to discuss what you may come upon,but if it is just a lot of gossip and rumor it won't fly. People open facebook accounts and post whatever they want and to carry that as some sort of inside info is careless. but, sometimes there is really valuable information that may even come into evidence as in the Caylee Anthony case.So, if you know for a fact it is the right person and they are named outright in the msm as someone linked to the case it should be fine. IF IT IS A MINOR DON"T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!!!

    If something was posted as public and then removed you might be able to post it, it is up to the mod of the forum and it depends on who, what, when and where.
    The mods are listed at the bottom right of the forum under the index, they can generally help. If not, they will ask admin for guidance and we will all decide what is best.

    Generally we try not to invade everyone's privacy and if the linked information has no bearing on anything, then leave it out.
    We moderate here. Some people love it and some people hate it. Up to you to stay or go, choice is yours. Complaining about our rules doesn't help. if you have a suggestion or think of a better way, bring it on! We are far from perfect and welcome your input as long as it is civil and basically polite.

    Why is it when I went to search to look for a thread about Cheryl Ann Kenney, I got a message telling me that I cannot have access?

    Hi, sam floor! Welcome to Websleuths!!!

    The "search" feature is not available right away to new members. Just keep on posting, and it will become available soon.

    I can tell you that Websleuths currently has no thread for Cheryl Ann Kenney. However, I started one for you here: MO MO - Cheryl Ann Kenney, 30, Nevada, 27 Feb 1991 - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community

    How long before I can start a new thread? I want to start one for Shaina Riser https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/26711/


    I found no news articles or anything on her disappearance BUT found a person that is very likely her due to the fact that they live in the same area, and fit the age. Also, since Shaina went missing from a foster home and no one seems to have posted much info about her, perhaps this is her and no one has checked up on it?

    Just in general what should I do with this information, if anything?

    In doing a search of her name on the site, this following thread comes up,

    Amontalov, thank you for trying.

    I'm not sure if this will be of any help to you. I'll check with the mods about starting a new thread.

    Amontalov, thanks for your patience. A mod has kindly explained that:

    "Members require a minimum of 10 or 15 posts (can't recall exact nimber) before the system will allow them to start a new thread. If you can find MSM or other valid info which shows the person is actually still missing, you can start the thread if you choose to. Gotta have that official documentation, though."

    Let me know if I can help. Good luck.
    my opinions only

    When I will be allowed to start a new thread? Is there a time limit or post limit which doesn't allow me to do it? And if so, how long/how much I have to wait?
    Madison Scott has been missing from Hogsback lake near Vanderhoof (BC, Canada) since Saturday May 28th 2011
