    Is there someone I could PM with a new story? I am too new to post on the unidentified forum but wonder if someone would be kind enough to pop it on there for me?

    Hi mods. I've seen references to ad-free subscriptions to this forum, and wonder if that is an option for registered members. I have a slow Internet connection and would gladly pay a subscription fee for an ad-free Websleuths experience. Thank you!

    New forums and sub-forums have popped up recently, but these are not yet reflected in the "Edit Options" list where one can opt out of seeing one or more of them. Could they be added?

    Hi

    Newbie with a question.

    I was trying to search and see if there is a thread about Kimberly Ann Amero, who went missing in 1985. I wasn't able to find anything in a search (of this site) but also am not able to start a thread in that section either.

    Can anyone tell me if there is a thread about her?

    And if not, could there be one started?

    Here is a link to the FB page. Her family has been quite active/vocal on it in the past couple years. http://www.facebook.com/groups/123921169834/members/

    Hi airplanelamp :-)

    Welcome to Websleuths! I didn't see a link for her either. I don't think you can start threads until you have a certain amount of posts but if you would like for me to start one on her I can do that.

    If you can send me the info, links etc. you have on her through a pm and I start it up for her.

    Thank you!

    Ima

    I am new and trying to do a search and access today's posts but it's popping up that I'm not allowed access. Does anyone know how I can fix this? Thanks!

    Posters need to be established for awhile before the search engine will function. What are you searching for?

    If a victim's family member is also a member here can we not ask them direct questions? I did that, emphasized that there was no snark involved, and it was deleted.I was neither attacking the person or "calling them out". I really wanted to know the answer because I do not want to waste time if the family member doesn't want us to do anything. I have no idea why that would be, but wanted to make sure we weren't overstepping our bounds in case they were told not to speak with us (by CUE or LE).

    Also, can I post if I made contact with someone outside of the family, such as news media or homeless shelters? I apologize for my confusion, but what seems OK in some threads in not OK in others and I want to be clear. If it's different for each thread could you post the rules for each thread seperatly so there's no confusion?

    It depends on if the family member is "verified". If they are verified, yes. If they are not verified, they are not officially declared a family member at all and then we go into the realm of possible rumor. There are a lot of people who claim to be someone they are not, so that's the reason.

    Members contacting family members after the fact is a tough call for Websleuths. We do not want our members upsetting families - they are in enough pain. We also don't want our member misrepresenting Websleuths. The best thing to do is contact Websleuths management at wbsleuth@xmission.com and explain your involvement and let administration make a determination. They will declare the member verified and that way there aren't any misunderstandings.

    Hope that helps!

    BTW, if a new poster is stating they are a family or friend of a victim and are not verified, please kindly guide them to this thread ----->Rules Verification Process for Professional or Insider Posters - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community

    Thanks, Kimster. I never thought about someone portraying themselves as a family member when in fact they may not be. It's twistedthat anyone would do that, but it makes sense not to speak to them AS a family member until they're verified.

    In the case I'm referring to the family did come on the radio show here so they obviously knew about WS and we felt that our help was welcomed.

    As far as contacting anyone about certain elements of the case, I never mention WS. I always talk on my own behalf when contacting LE, the media, etc for updates and information. If I hear back from these people and they give me info I need to know if that info is ok to post. Example: If I call LE and ask if there are any active searches going on and they say "No" is it ok to report that or is that considered rumor? If we wait for MSM to comment on this case we'll never get anywhere. This is a 45 year old black man with special needs and apparently it's not the kind of story that sells ads. Sadly, even when a reporter wants to do a story on him, he/she is also hitting a brick wall with their bosses (who want to sell ads).

    Thanks for your time, Kimster and you did clear things up a bit for me.

    You brought up an excellent issue that could cause miscommunication and that is the radio show. The Tricia's True Crime Radio is not a part of Websleuths LLC. So, if on the show people are invited to call a family member on a case, it doesn't mean that posting about those communications are allowed on Websleuths.

    Again, please contact wbsleuth@xmission.com before posting anything behind the scenes on a case. You will get management direction on a case by case basis. It sounds to me like you've been very responsible.
