    Welcome to Websleuths!

    My habit is to click New Posts and scroll for threads in locations that I'm familiar with.

    I have experience as a genealogist, and educator, and sewist. So cases with kids and clothing interest me, especially in places I can visualize.

    You might try the Game Room as well, some fun folks hang out there.

    Just jump in, ClosetCop!

    Hi ClosetCop! :) I've compiled for you some information that was extremely helpful to me. This should at least get you started.

    The Rules
    Terms of Service (short version)
    Using social media

    Here is where you'll find current and past cases to follow or contribute. It depends on what interests you. Some of us prefer following along with current cases, others of us prefer cold cases, and some of us have an interest in helping identify people who have passed but their identity is unknown.

    Missing person forums
    Missing
    Located
    Unidentified
    Identified

    Websleuths has a ton to offer including a private fun zone (;)woo woo, that sounds exciting) and it is but not like that! :p Haha. Wherever you decide to start I hope you enjoy yourself. Don't be shy at all, either. Just jump on in with us. After youve read all the importqnt stuff ask questions as needed. I've found the folks here at WS are amazingly friendly and helpful.

    Welcome to you and enjoy! :D

    All the above is solid advice.
    As suggested, it's always good to start by reading the TOS. This is a unique and well run forum that focuses on facts, no victim bashing, and so forth. The TOS addresses all the do's and don'ts.

    If you are a LEO, it would be great to have you identified as a "verified insider".
    We especially appreciate having LEO on these threads to provide that unique perspective. If interested, send an email to:
    wsverify@gmail.com
    That will kick the process off, and give you some additional posting privileges with regard to attribution, sources, etc.

    Welcome aboard!
