Default Guidelines for OHIO NEWs Threads...

Hi there Ohio

We are going to set some guidelines on what to post to this Forum in order to keep the focus on Prisons and actual Inmates who are incarcerated.

Basically our attempt is to Narrow Down the Scope to stories about prison news and NOT on trials, sentencing, or just news in general, etc. (not to say that other News isn't important )

Although WE all know that there's lots of happenings going on in OHIO 24/7 and if you're like me you can find the local news by googling in on a specific City in Ohio. But it's been brought to my attention that this Forum is losing it's focus and I want to bring us back to the Prison focus

So if you would be so kind as to try these suggestions before posting in this Forum please ask yourself the following:

(1) Is this about a Prison in Ohio?
(2) Is it regarding someone incarcerated in Ohio?


If the above applies:

(1) Post the facts
(2) Post where you received the facts, example: the google, the Author, or exactly how the information can be verified.
(3) Post the date the information was released


Most importantly, make sure you check that your post is not already out there. Duplicate postings are not permitted
.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation

Sabrena

Default Copyright & Policy Violations...

Last BUT not least, Please go to this thread regarding Copying & Pasting Complete Articles:

To stay within “fair use” copyright you are allowed a brief summary and a link back to the site which the article is located. Here is an example:

Subject: Official: E. Coli bacteria detected in floodwater

Post Content:
NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana (CNN) -- Floodwater in New Orleans is contaminated with E. coli bacteria, a city official told CNN Tuesday.
The official in Mayor Ray Nagin's office declined to be identified.
The failures of the levee system after Hurricane Katrina's onslaught left about 80 percent of the city flooded with water up to 20 feet deep -- water that became a toxic mix of chemicals, garbage, corpses and human waste.

Please follow the above guidelines when posting a News Article.
Thank you,
