    I was just about to ask the same question and came looking to see how to start a thread for her. I'm on phone so don't think I can.

    Yes, you do have to have a minimum number of posts before starting threads but I cannot remember how many. Maybe 20 or 30? Somewhere around there, I think. Just keep posting and you'll get there!

    Sorry but no, none of these sites would be equivalent to MSM. Not doubting that they do good work, but each missing persons website would have to be vetted and approved individually, and there are so many that it really isn't feasible to do so.

    Elaborating on this answer in case I left the impression none of these sites can be linked at all. It is okay to link to a MP organization's post or to post their flier on an existing thread, but they cannot be used to start a thread nor can we close a thread based upon their word that a missing person has been found. For that, we need either LE or MSM.

    There is one exception to this rule: If a missing person flier includes a case number issued by the law enforcement agency investigating the disappearance, it can be used to start a thread. However, very few MP orgs provide a case number on their fliers.

    Yes, information found on Nixle comes directly from law enforcement or other government agencies, so it is allowed as a source.

    What I'm finding is that people are creating threads and not including the person's photograph

    It is much easier to connect with a case when you can put a face to the name, so we do encourage that pics be included in case threads whenever possible.

    The fact is, not everyone has a high level of technical proficiency in dealing with images - including me - and I'm very interested in having a conversation about it so we all can learn more.

    It's a good bet we have members around here who could teach us quite a lot about image hosting, editing, resizing and so forth, so I'm starting a thread on this topic in the Forum Finesse section. Hope to see you there!
