Does West Easton Borough control the content on WestEastonPA.com?
No. WestEastonPA.com is privately owned and it is independent of the borough. However, if a representative of the governing body requests an edit of information we provide, we will consider such requests and the reasons given. There also exists an open invitation for the Mayor or any Council member to submit content on any subject matter, or to rebut our opinion.
How do I register?
A link to register can be found at the top right of the website, in the “About WEPA” drop-down menu. Fill out your registration information using your primary email address (freemail services such as gmail, hotmail, yahoo, and others will “flag” it for possible hacker intrusion).
Within 24 hours you will receive a registration confirmation to your email address that will provide you with a randomly generated password. This password must be used when you login to WestEastonPA.com unless you change it after you login (see below).
How can I change my password?
Along the black bar located under the header of the website, place your pointer on the words, “About WEPA” and a drop-down menu will appear. Click on, “Your Profile” from the drop-down menu. You will arrive at a page that will allow you to change your password. NOTE: If changing your password, it must contain at least 7 characters.
I don’t live in West Easton. Can I still register as a member?
Yes. Registration is open to anyone unless they have been banned. People often have ties to the community, live nearby, or simply want to know more about our community that isn’t found on other “cookie cutter” websites that give statistical information.
Will my personal registration information be kept private?
It will. We will never sell, transfer, or forward your registration information to others. The only exception to this rule would be the involvement of law enforcement with legal authority for the request.
How do I know a comment made by another member is who they claim to be in the comment?
If they falsified their registration information it’s possible they could comment for awhile before we took a closer look. We would investigate if complaints about their comments arose, or if we received an email from the actual person the commenter claims to be. We capture IP addresses upon registration, which allows us to track back the location of the member. Registrations with hidden IP’s are not allowed.
I registered, but how come I can’t comment on some pages?
Most pages are not open for comment. Such pages are those found in the “Menu” bar (located below the large header image). Also, most articles written may not be open for comment. For the most part, WestEastonPA.com is not a discussion forum.
Can I submit articles, or pictures about West Easton?
Absolutely! We would love to hear from you. Please email us at wepa-@-west-easton-pa.com (Remove the dashes from the email address before sending). Feel free to send us your writings and photos of events, your holiday decorations, gardening tips, or other musings that represent our West Easton community.
I can not access the website any longer. What happened?
You likely violated basic rules of civility in your comments, or we discovered you falsified information when registering. There may also be rare instances when a server problem prevents viewing the site. Normally, we will email you a warning before taking a ban action, so we recommend using your primary email address when registering to our site.
How do I “Download” a document from your website?
Viewing a document requires a .pdf reader. AcrobatReader comes installed on almost every computer and will work. If you are computer literate, you can choose your own reader program and probably won’t need these instructions.
If you want to download a public document:
Click the link to the document. You will see a popup box appear on your browser window showing a file ending with “.zip”.
It will ask you if you want to “save” the document, or “open” (possibly “view” on some computers) the document. Ensure the “Open” option is highlighted. Click “OK.”
The opened document will either appear in a new screen, or another popup box will appear with what appears to be a page of paper with a red band on it. If you see that image, click on it (or rapidly double click it, depending on your computer settings).
When the document appears, you can then print it, using the printer icon located at the top of the screen.
Are all public documents available and are they current?
Not necessarily. We attempt to provide the most useful documents and though we try to keep them current, some may become outdated. Also, we may have to request a public document using the Right to Know Law, which can take time to receive, if the borough delays our request.
