• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Maybe for extended discussion of an incident. But like I said in the MD incident forum,

How will you know about a new incident without actually looking through the forum? Sure you can subscribe to this subforum to get daily or weekly updates, but not instant notification. That won't necessarily notify you in time to listen in the way instant notification of replies to threads does. It seems far easier to me to subscribe to one thread regardless of where it is.

I agree with the freq-man.....keep it all right here :)

Like it was said, when the "Big One" happens, someone can consolidate it.

There, now ya have my 2-cents.....

I agree with Freqhopping & Towpro
I say we keep the Major Incident thread for notification and updates of routine incidents (fires, major crashes, etc) and if anything really big (attracting alot of discussion or updates) happens, make a notification of it in the major incident thread for the benefit of the folks who subscribe to it, but keep the discussion and updates in a seperate thread.

sounds good to me. I don't contribute as much as other on here but I do once in a while since I work in Loudoun County.
