Discussion Forum Agreement
Reach Out Oregon (ROO) Discussion Forum Agreement
The ROO discussion forum is a separate part of the ROO site, and you must specifically agree to these terms to participate in it. Participation in the forum is entirely voluntary and at the participant’s discretion, and requires that participants agree to these terms.
Agreeing to these terms means you are agreeing to abide by the rules set for Reach Out Oregon (ROO) by Oregon Family Support Network Inc. (OFSN), and that you understand that ROO/OFSN has sole discretion to permit access to this discussion forum, and may, without notice, bar any participants who violate these rules or who, in the opinion of ROO/OFSN, have posted inappropriate content, content that might tend to discourage others from participating, or have otherwise acted in a way that ROO/OFSN deems detrimental to the forum, to ROO/OFSN, or to any other participant or person.
In addition, ROO/OFSN may revise these rules without advance notice and that, once ROO/OFSN posts a notice of changes to these rules, your further participation in the discussion forum is your unqualified acceptance and agreement to comply with the revised rules.

Forum Content Guidelines
- Posts and comments made on the discussion forum are solely the views of the authors and are not necessarily those of Reach Out Oregon or Oregon Family Support Network, Inc.
- Reach Out Oregon (ROO) and Oregon Family Support Network, Inc. (OFSN) have absolute discretion to delete some or all of any posts or comments made to the discussion forum. As resources allow, ROO and OFSN may review posts and comments that are flagged as inappropriate. However, ROO/OFSN offer no warranties that flagged posts will be removed.

Posting content to the discussion forum
- Stay on topic. This discussion forum is offered to help people use Reach Out Oregon’s products and technologies more effectively. Therefore, unless otherwise noted, do not add submissions about other topics. Stay within the subject for the discussion category identified on the discussion forum site.
- Be polite and lawful. Only post content and comments you would be proud to have associated with your true name by people whose respect you seek. Post nothing that is libelous, defamatory, indecent, harmful, harassing, intimidating, threatening, hateful, objectionable, discriminatory, abusive, vulgar, obscene, pornographic, sexually explicit, or offensive in a sexual, racial, cultural, or ethnic context.
- No polls, petitions, or spam. This is a non-commercial discussion forum for a limited purpose. Therefore, do not post polls, petitions, or any links to or ads for any commercial products or services. Do not include any such links in your signature used in the discussion forum.
- Disclose Any Compensation. You should generally avoid posting links to other sites as they tend to detract from the purpose of a discussion forum. However, if you do post a URL because you feel it directly responds to or answers another forum participant’s question or concern, you must disclose if you receive any compensation, either from posting the link or from any purchases through the site you posted. For example you should disclose that “I may receive some form of compensation, financial or otherwise, from my recommendation or link” when that is the case.
- Be original. Submit only your own original messages or ideas, which relate to raising children experiencing significant mental health challenges.
- Respect and Protect Confidentiality. When referring to a child, use only that child’s first initial or a pseudonym initial (such as S for a son, D for a daughter, etc.). Never post anything with child/youth’s actual name or personally identifiable information
