CCHE Forums

Welcome to the CCHE Forums!

We’re glad you’re here. Your participation is an important part of what makes these forums relevant, timely, insightful and lively! The content you will find within the Communities Creating Healthy Environments (CCHE) Forums is posted by The Praxis Project employees, CCHE grantees & technical assistance providers (CCHE is funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation), and folks unrelated to CCHE. While we encourage visitors to analyze, comment on and challenge the ideas and strategies you see here, we expect all visitors to do so in the spirit of fairness, justice and intellectual inquiry. 

If you’re new to the CCHE Forums, please take a minute to read through these guidelines.

The Basics of Our Community

Regardless of whether you’re a beginner or an expert, your questions and participation are valid and much appreciated. Please be sure to follow these general rules of posting:

  1. Search before you post and keep posts relevant to the forums. This helps us keep all related info in the same area.
  2. Show respect. Please ensure that all of your posts contribute to the supportive atmosphere of the board.  Flaming or disrespecting other board users is not allowed. We can agree to disagree, but please don’t make things personal. No need to SHOUT. 
  3. Credit your sources. Whether you are quoting someone or posting a link to an article, please credit your source. That is both helpful and respectful to the source and the audience (whether or not you believe in copyright, copyleft, or any other version of information sharing!)
  4. Act responsibly. Please remember that advice or information posted in a discussion is the personal opinion of the person providing it. If something sounds wrong to you, do not engage. In particular, if any user asks you for personal information, such as an account number, password or other personal and confidential information, do not provide it.  Instead, report that user to a moderator. We try to moderate comments as fast as we can, but if something is posted that seems out of place (spam, etc), please let a moderator know.  

Out of Bounds

Your posts appear automatically, but posts that violate the community guidelines may be edited or deleted by a moderator. Posts that include any sort of spam, personal attacks, or offensive language violate our community guidelines. Repeated and/or serious violation of the guidelines may result in a user being banned from the CCHE Forums with or without notice.

Privacy of Your Contact Information

The personal and contact information you provide when registering for the CCHE Forums is stored in a secure database that is only used for login information.

Your name and email address will not be visible to others. Your email address is used to send you system emails, like your registration confirmation and password reminders. We do not share your profile with any third parties.

Moderator Rights and Responsibilities

We have a team of volunteer moderators in charge of monitoring the discussions. Their main responsibility is to oversee that all members participate in accordance to our terms of use and overall community guidelines. To this end, The Praxis Project grants its moderators the right to edit and delete posts that they consider contrary to the forum guidelines or otherwise illegal, harmful or inaccurate. We will attempt to conduct these activities in a timely fashion; however, The Praxis Project is not responsible for delays in editing or removing posts, or for failure to do so. If you see something that you think needs deleting, please let us know!

Moderators may also take actions they deem necessary to limit user access to the discussions. For instance, a moderator can, at his or her sole discretion, ban a user from the discussions either temporarily or permanently and without warning, depending on the seriousness of the violation.
