This board is here for support and help between the users of METHADONE: A Flicker of Light in the Dark. It is important to keep this board clean for everyone's comfort and these following rules are here to help. Messages Posted On The Board
Before You Post:
A search should be done to see if your questions have not already been posted. You have a FAQ section where you can find answers for general questions about board management.
When you post your question or your problem, you must use a title related to your problem/question.
Words such as "Urgent", "Question", "Problem", "Hurry" are not tolerated. Capitals should always be avoided. Description Of Your Problem/Question:
When you ask a question, try to be clear and accurate about what you want to say. Don't hesitate to describe the problem. The more information you give, the better we can answer your question. Language On This Forum:
When you write, write in English, SMS (cell phone) style message, L3375P34K (leetspeak) and deliberate mistakes must be avoided. Non-English people, as well as English people, must be able to understand what you write, so put a minimum of care in your English, even if your English is not very good (eh, Godfather...lol?)
Colors And Capitals And Size:
When you write your message, please don't abuse capitals (it means that you shout), Colors and Bold text are reserved for moderation, therefore don't use them. Re-sizing your text is also a bad idea. Overly large text resembles screaming. Flood and Off-Topic:
Flood must be avoided. One-word posts such like "lol", "rofl" or a single similey must be avoided. You must also avoid to post the same topic twice, it will not be faster for you to get a response. As long as your topic is not in the second page of the support section, it is useless to up it. The minimum delay between two Ups is 24 hours, according to the board's default timezone (GMT-5). If you make a mistake, please use the button at the top-right of your post, to avoid double-posting. Behavior On The Forum
Defamatory, racist, hateful, pornographic, illegal or insulting content must be avoided on this forum.
You must respect the fact that people may have a different opinion than you. If you are in conflict with another member, please use the PMs for that, this board is not an arena. Please pay attention to your letters when typing.
If an "I" is supposed to be capitalize,d please use a capital I and not a lower case (i).
Please don't use a lot of ...... to space out your words.Use spell check please.
If you do not have spell check on your browser, the Google tool bar can be very easily downloaded and it does have a button for spell check. Absolutely no spamming
and no posting of outside links with out the approval of the administration of Medical Assisted Treatment of America. You may link to some government and non-profit sites as references to your topics, but any that can be viewed as advertisements will be considered solicitation.Spammers will be banned without further notice and links will be deleted.
Please do not post your email address on the forum.
This is a community forum and we encourage all of our members to post questions in the proper sections. If you have a question that you are uncomfortable posting, please notify one of the moderators. You may send a PM to any of the moderators by clicking on the PM button under their name.

I understand that some of you may think this is a lot of rules to abide by, but we work hard to provide a safe environment for our members. Thank you all for posting. We welcome all comments and suggestions you have for improving Methadone: A Flicker of Light in the Dark. You are important to us and we are very much interested in all you have to say and we will take any of your suggestions seriously and you will receive a reply from us.

You must respect the moderators and administrators. They all work voluntarily on this forum and they are human, not machines!
My name is Ruth Ann Alston aka lilgirllost. I am the head moderator for this group and I'm always available. I took over as main moderator here so Dee Black could focus her attention to the suboxone forum and not have to handle both furms. However, Dee still moderates here as well so if you wish to speak to her, she is still here. She is also the Vice President of MAT of America. We are the only moderators at this time so if you need to speak to a moderator, make sure you send it a PM to Dee or myself (lilgirllost).
If you don't find your topic, it may have been moved to a more appropriate place. If you have a question, PM a moderator for that! If you have any question about one of the forum rules, please PM a moderator to ask your question.
Thanks for your cooperation.

Word From Your Administrator: Why do we ask you to use Explicit Titles?
I post this message to give some precision about this, because it seems some people don't understand this rule. The forum's search engine base its research on keywords found in topic titles. When you do a Google Search, do you use "help," "problem," "SOS" or "question" as keywords to look for topics about your problem/question?
Certainly not! So this is why it is important to use titles related to your problem, question. Doing this makes the searches much easier for visitors who use the search engine to get an answer to a question.
