Forum Topic Suggestions
There are many topics that would be ideal to discuss among the professionals on findCE.com. If you have a worthy suggestion, please send it to forums@findCE.com, and unless we find it ill-suited for a forum like this, it would be included soon.
Interdisciplinary Forum Definition
An interdisciplinary forum (originated by findCE.com) is a message board for exchanging information between professionals belonging to different disciplines. If you belong to a particular profession, there are times when you have wondered what another professional in another field might do in a situation. You may have insights that would prove valuable to those in another profession. You may need to find a specialist in a given discipline, and would like to know what attributes to look for. The opportunities and uses for an interdisciplinary forum are limitless, so why not get involved yourself?

Moderators oversee individual forums. They can edit, delete, or prune any posts in their forums. Becoming a moderator for a specific forum is usually rewarded to users who are particularly helpful and knowledgeable in the subject of the forum they are moderating. If you have a question about a particular forum, you should direct it to your forum moderator, designated as "Admins" for each forum topic.
Changing Your Profile or Options
You may easily change information stored in your registration profile, using the "User Options" link located near the top of each page. It is your responsibility to keep the information in your profile up-to-date. You should especially ensure that your email address is kept current. You can alter any of the fields in your profile, except your username. Once you have registered your username, it becomes yours for life. In extreme circumstances, you may request that the administrator change your username, but you may have to shave your head and repeat Latin incantations to get this done. You must be logged in in order to update your profile.
If you forget your password, you can click on the Forgot My Password link on any page that requires you to fill in your password. This will bring up a page where you should enter your registered email address, and your password will be automatically emailed to you.
The message board administrators have the power to censor certain words that may be posted. This censoring is not an exact science, however, so certain words may be censored out of context. Please realize that the censoring, if any censoring is being performed, is being done largely by a computer based on the words that are being screened. Although the administrators and moderators of findCE.com will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this forum, it is impossible for us to review all messages. All messages express the views of the author, and the owners of findCE.com will not be held responsible for the content of any message.
Editing Your Posts
If you have registered, you will be able to edit and delete your posts. To do this, click the Edit button by the post you wish to edit. If your post was the first in the thread, then deleting the post may result in the removal of the entire thread. After you have made your modifications, a note will appear, which notifies other users that you have edited your post.
Receiving Email Notification
If you post a new thread, you can choose (in "User Options") to be notified by email when someone else replies to that thread. Only registered users may receive email notification.
Searching For Specific Posts
You may search for specific posts based on a word or words found in the posts. Just click on the "basic search" link at the top left of most pages, but your results may bring items outside the forums as well.
