(7) Chase topics spanning multiple or ambiguous dates are prohibited, such as "FCST: This Weekend". Map Room is chronologically organized and is dependent on exact dates. Pick the most representative calendar date and post your message there. Commit to a date, and if it changes you can always move to another thread or start a new one.

Rather non-specific discussion is currently ongoing in the thread in Weather and Chasing. As the event nears, feel free to begin more specific discussion of timing, locations, and threats here in the Map Room.
