    Help keep the forum organized for all users

    From The FAQ

    Rule 6) Help keep the forum organized for all users

    a) Before posting a new topic, use the Search feature, found at the top of every page, to see if a similar topic has already been posted. If there is already a thread about the person or thing you want to post about, do not post another one. Even if you are talking about a new facet of a case, you are still talking about the same case, so keep it in one thread.

    b) Respect the forum's categories. Here are some rough guidelines:

    ACTORS AND ACTRESSES
    Only for people that were most famous for acting and are already dead.

    MUSICIANS
    Only for people that were most famous for singing, dancing, and/or playing a musical instrument and are already dead.

    BEHIND-THE-SCENES BIGWIGS
    Only for people that were most famous for writing, directing, or other off-camera/off-stage roles and are already dead.

    OTHER NAMES IN THE NEWS
    For famous people that are already dead and absolutely do not fit into the above three categories: stand-up comedians, scientists, everyday people whose deaths made the news, etc.

    ENTERTAINMENT
    Talk about movies, books, television shows, plays, etc., and the people involved - even if those people are all or mostly dead. (Remember you are discussing the actual works.) Gossip about living celebrities.

    EVERYTHING ELSE
    Talk that is primarily about current events, history, and this community's opinions, but don't put anything here if it fits in the Entertainment category or if it is mainly about any of Scott Michaels' projects (see below).

    DEARLY DEPARTED TOURS AND DVDS
    Talk only about Scott Michaels' projects besides findadeath.com and this forum.

    FAD FEEDBACK AND SUPPORT
    Comments and suggestions about findadeath.com and this forum. If you want Scott to cover a particular celebrity, do not post the request here. Instead, look for a thread in the one of the first four categories (for instance, if Tom Jones died but wasn't covered on the main site, look under Musicians). If there is no thread, start one.

    Some people, like Frank Sinatra, fall under multiple categories, but if there is no existing thread, ask yourself what the person was best and more successful at, then start a thread in the appropriate category. If there is a Frank Sinatra category under Musicians, do not start one under Actors and Actresses to discuss his films. There is no reason to break up the Sinatra discussion like that.

    If you post a thread that effectively duplicates another thread, or if you post a topic in the wrong place, send a Private Message to any moderator or administrator - particularly if you see her or him online at the time. Moderator names are bold and administrator names are italicized for your convenience. Additionally, all moderators and administrators are listed on the Forum Leaders page.

    Also, there's the new Google Fad Search sticky that W Axel Rose created.

    Also, the advanced forum search works well. (Sheepish grin.)

    Yay for organization!

    I get all giddy over the word 'organized.'

    Just a reminder since we're having lots of duplicate threads daily.

    Can I just add that if anyone notices a name misspelling can we change the thread title? It is almost impossible to find something if the title is misspelled.

    Thanks!
