Hello All, This is just a friendly reminder to read the Forum Charter where you wish to post before posting in it. :)
Hi all, The AutoSave Draft feature is now disabled across the site. The decision to disable the feature was made via a poll last year. The delay in putting it in place was due to a bug/update issue. This should serve as a reminder to manually save your drafts if you wish to keep them. Thanks, The Boards Team.
Hello all! This is just a quick reminder to ensure that you are posting a new thread or question in the appropriate forum. The Feedback forum is overwhelmed with questions that are having to be moved elsewhere.

    Welcome to the True Crime forum!

    This forum is dedicated to discussion on True Crime which would include Serial Killers, Murders, Criminal Behavior, etc.

    The rules of the True Crime forum are governed by the Terms Of Use that were agreed to when signing up for boards.

    There are a few additional items to this forum that need to be highlighted:

    - No speculation please, everything should be fact based as part of the discussion.
    - No use of initials instead of names, this can get very confusing.
    - The person(s) involved in the crimes are not to be mocked or attacked here, the discussion should remain respectful without defamatory comments.
    - Please do not post graphic images from crime scenes
    - There are certain cases that cannot be discussed for legal reasons. The following table illustrates what can and cannot be discussed

    No | Scenario | Irish | Non-Irish
    1 | Incident, no evidence of crime | x | x
    2 | Crime, no suspects/charges/court | x | ✓
    3 | Crime, charges/before court | x | ✓
    4 | Crime, court proceedings completed | x | ✓
    5 | Historic crime (2-4), over 50 years | ✓ | ✓

    With the name change comes the addition of Unsolved Mysteries.

    The only change to the charter at this time is that Unsolved Mysteries does not include paranormal type mysteries.

    This is subject to change once the latest addition gets up and running and the mods get a feel for it and see any changes that are needed.
