    How to start a Missing But Not Forgotten thread

    If you'd like to start a thread but aren't quite sure how, here's a little tutorial:

    1. It begins with information from an official source: a news article, a release issued by law enforcement, a NamUs listing, etc. A missing person poster from social media is generally not sufficient.

    2. Use the Search box to make sure we don't already have a thread on that case.

    3. Upload the missing person's image, if available, to an image host.

    4. Go to the appropriate subforum (determined by year) of the Missing But Not Forgotten forum and click Post New Thread (to the left of the subforum header).

    5. Select the appropriate location prefix from the drop-down menu.

    6. Add a title. There is a specific approved format for for all Missing Person titles:

    (State or Country Prefix - First & Last Name, Age, Last Seen Location, Date)

    For example: WI - Crystal Jones, 24, Milwaukee, 16 April 1957

    7. Add your image and source link(s) and text in the text box.

    8. Preview and proofread your post by clicking the Preview Post button.

    9. Once you're satisfied that your post is accurate and complete, click the Submit New Thread button.

    Any questions? Ask away!

    I would like to start a thread, but the "Post New Thread" button is just not there. Could you perhaps post a screen shot as to where I can find it?
