Finding your way around or figuring out how to contribute and
make the most of this Convention might be a little confusing at
first so here are some navigation instructions and general
- When in doubt go to the Menu Bar Directly under 'The End is
FAR' Logo and 'The Online Constitutional Convention' tagline at the
top of the page.
- Placing the mouse over a Menu Tab without clicking will reveal
if there are SubMenus below. Most will have submenus for easy
Clarification and Restoration Forums with an '*' are Open for
members to Start Discussions.
- Home will take you back to the
main page. It also has SubMenus to 'Introduction', 'Mission',
'Terms of Service', 'FAQ', and this page 'How To'.
- Clarification is for the
Forums that pertain to clarifying the Founder's intent to serve as
a foundation for Restoration. 'Open' is for non specific
topics or to petition for a Categorized discussion that has not yet
- Most Categorized Discussions must be started by a Moderator so
that we can maintain some order. If you don't see a
discussion taking place that you feel needs addressing, use the
Open Forum to get it started. We can assign the proper
category once under way.
- Restoration is for the Forums
that pertain to putting our common (Clarified) knowledge to work to
Restore the Inalienable Rights and Limited Government described in
our Founding Documents.
- Workshops are the discussions
within each forum put into a logical format. Example:
The Declaration of Independence and US Constitution with each
of their clauses linked to the proper discussion. The
Etymology Workshop is in alphabetical order. As we add more
workshops, they will be set up in similar fashion.
- Blogs are completely Open
Forum. They can be searched, but will not appear in the
Forums. Great for having a Side Bar discussion, or whatever.
It's your playground.
- Chat is open for chat,
but we're looking into how to make the best use of it.
- Events are currently open to
everyone to contribute to. We want to know about your Tea
Party events/meetings, Libertarian, D&R, parades, BBQ's,
picnics, etc. Shaking hands & kissing babies is a great
way to Unite.
- Videos are a great way to pass
information and sometimes get a laugh. Currently open to
encourage contributions without moderation. Keep them clean
an informative so we can keep it that way.
- Invite ALL your contacts
(Email, FaceBook, Twitter, etc). TEiF has a strict NO SPAM
policy, we will not SPAM your friends and colleagues. The
Constitution needs to be understood be everyone, not just a few of
us to tell the others about it. Knowing your rights doesn't
help if no one else does.
- MY PAGE is YOUR personal
space. Fix it up as you like for show or leave it blank.
Great member pages will be showcased (with permission of
