Are my posts private?
No. Anyone with Internet access may view this forum. Neither the posts nor your name as an author is confidential.

You may edit the name that appears in your posts by clicking on “My Account” in the upper right-hand corner of your screen and selecting “Account Settings.” Enter your preferred forum name under “Nickname,” and select it under “Display name as.” Please use care when posting, particularly when mentioning situations at school, students, and/or parents. Avoid the use of names or information that may identify you and/or anyone involved.

If you provide personal information to other participants through the public forum or private message system, it is at your own risk. Personal information, such as your e-mail address, will not be sold or shared by NAfME.

I’ve read a post or series of posts that I believe to be inappropriate. What should I do?
Don’t take it upon yourself to confront someone you feel is breaking the rules. Use the contact forum staff e-mail below if you see a problem post and allow the forum staff to moderate.

I have a complaint about a person or organization. It is okay to voice it here?
Posts containing negative comments can be made, but such comments should be respectful and avoid exaggeration. Present your issues; do not vent them.

Can I post a link to my personal Web page or a product or service I find helpful?
You can include a link only if it is relevant to the discussion. It is inappropriate to include your link or announce it in multiple posts throughout the forum.

If your question isn’t answered here, contact the forum staff.
