Welcome to phila_discuss.

This community hosts open discussion related to the City of Philadelphia.

Who can post?

Philadelphia's residents (new and old), neighbors, expatriates, visitors, inquisitors, fans, and detractors.

What can you do here?

First and foremost, please add posts and comments germaine to the people, places, things, events, issues, and opinions that make Philadelphia what it is.

Beyond that, we entertain discussions on topics relevant to the area immediately surrounding Philadelphia, known as "the Delaware Valley" or "the greater Philadelphia region," comprised of:
- Bucks, Montgomery, Chester, and Delaware counties
- southern New Jersey
- northern Delaware

Beyond that, we will allow Philadelphia-relevant discussions originating from other regions, in descending order of importance:
- the Lehigh Valley; larger cities such as Harrisburg, Lancaster, Allentown, Wilkes-Barre, Scranton, and Pittsburgh; and other areas of the state of Pennsylvania
- northern New Jersey
- southern Delaware
- the U.S. at large
- the world at large

What can't you do here?

1. Do not disable or screen comments. Those are moderator jobs. If you do, we may delete your post or ban you.

2. We tolerate healthy levels of respect and occasional disrespect. Please don't go overboard on the latter.
