  • What topics are allowed? What is the 'intended subject'?
    The intended subject is any topic that relates to past or present Chatham in some way. It can be history, places, people or events. You can also ask or answer questions about these items. Also allowed are events that happen to Chathamites (past or present), such as births, illness, death or travels, visits, etc. Current national events may be allowed on a limited basis when posted by known users, but state/national/presidential politics and off-Cape topics are generally not. Discussion of Chatham government activities is also encouraged, but not personal attacks related to it or other topics.

  • Do you need to register? Can you use a moniker? Can you post anonymously?
    Registration is NOT needed to post. However, providing a contact email address and/or phone nbr to moderator by email or other means is highly encouraged. This will allow off-list discussion of any posts in question and resolution of any issues.
    Monikers (such as CapeWind, DeltaOne, Babe Ruth, etc) or anonymous are not allowed! Should you wish to not use your real name (first name only is fine), which is preferred, please use your initials or another common name, such as Jim/Mary/Katie, etc.

  • What about formatting of posts?
    The actual post differs from the entry form in that the comments entry will appear first, followed by name/email, and city/state/country. Thus, because the form has a specific NAME field, please do NOT include your name/signature at end of COMMENTS field. It may be manually removed later by moderator when found there. Please use a blank line every 4-6 lines to avoid lengthy blocks of text. The moderator may insert blank lines or remove duplicates to make forum more readable. Please include some form of a subject phrase, when needed, in new topic posts, as this forum does not use threads or subject headers.

  • Are posts approved? How closely are posts monitored?
    Posts are made immediately with NO approval. The moderator generally checks on forum about 4-6 times a day, as many users do. In general, the minimal rules defined here and in the FAQ's are the only limitations on postings. Should there be any issue with a post's content, the moderator will attempt off-line contact when possible to resolve the issue. Plese feel free to contact me also!
