[Official] - Rule and FAQ Update!

2018.03.02 01:07 synapticrelease [Official] - Rule and FAQ Update!

New year new rules and FAQ section!
At least that was the plan! Finally, after much teasing, we are finally ready to roll out with a new and improved ruleset and FAQ guide. Actually, for the most part, the rules are mostly the same and the FAQ has been updated with additional updated information. This will be a thread where you can ask questions and suggest some feedback for us.
However, they are much more clarified and hopefully easier to understand. That was the main intention with this iteration of the new rule and FAQ set.
This was a group effort by everyone (including your feedback) and we hope that this will be the best iteration of the rules to date. There may be minor changes typos, grammar, formatting, and maybe some clarification if this thread points something out. The old rules are still in our rule section for now but it gives you something to compare to in this thread.
Though, we do expect a few tomatoes to be thrown our way
Official Portland Rules and FAQ

What are the rules for posting and commenting in /Portland?

0) The Golden Rule - All submissions should be relevant to Portland or the greater Portland area. Topics of interest about Oregon or national stories with a local connection may be allowed at moderator discretion. Off-topic submissions will be removed.
1) Trolling and Harassment - Be excellent to each other. Don't troll, threaten or otherwise be a nuisance. Endeavor to follow reddiquette in all things - make sure to read this and the Reddit content policy before posting anything.
1.1) Name-calling - Extreme or blatant use of racist, misogynist/misandrist, or homophobic language is strictly not allowed. Usage of slurs is also prohibited.
1.2) Doxing - Posting any personally identifying information about a Reddit user or resident of Portland for the purposes of shaming, witch hunting, or seeking legal action is strictly not allowed. This includes social media of all types (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn etc.). Information regarding notable figures such as politicians and celebrities will be judged for appropriateness on a case by case basis. For example, we would likely remove the personal address of a city commissioner but not a link to a verified Twitter profile.
1.3) Creepshots - Pictures or video of unsuspecting parties may be removed.
1.4) Harassment - Harassment or stalking an /Portland user is strictly not allowed. This can include following users onto subreddits other than /Portland and /AskPortland.
1.5) Violence - Do not post content that encourages, glorifies, incites, or calls for violence or physical harm against an individual or a group of people; likewise, do not post content that glorifies or encourages the abuse of animals. Please refer to Reddit's site-wide policy on the topic. Joking or sarcastic comments about violence may be removed and treated as an actual call for violence.
1.6) Troll accounts - Users who consistently push the limits or otherwise attempt to violate the spirit of /Portland’s rules may have their comments removed and/or be subject to other moderation actions.
2) Spam and Crowdfunding - This includes posting the same type of content repeatedly, content deliberately designed to troll or be offensive (see Rule #1), any kind of SEO nonsense, advertising, items for sale or other commercial content. Exceptions are any public and charity events, some paid events (see below), and other things that are of benefit to the Portland community as a whole. Any abuse of these exceptions may lead to deletion and a possible ban.
2.1) You may not make a post on Portland promoting any paid service or paid product. To advertise on Portland you must go through Reddit's in-house advertising platform at http://www.reddit.com/advertising.
2.2) Can I post about events that cost money to attend? Yes, when it benefits the community discussion. This would include larger concerts, festivals, and shows. Posts will be removed or redirected if it is obvious self-promotion, with money being made from the event by OP. The post should focus on discussion, not sales, and will likely be confined to a megathread. It should also be limited to the greater Portland area, though on rare occasions large events from further away could be approved - the further away, the bigger the event has to be.
2.3) Events that are open to the public, and do not contain corporate sponsorship are welcome to post promotional material here.
2.4) Can I make a post about a charity event? Yes! All charity events are welcome to post promotional material here.
2.5) Crowdfunding links for the purposes of profiting monetarily in a for-profit business or personal way are not allowed.
2.6) Posts asking for participation in surveys, academic studies, or related subreddits will be judged on a case by case basis.
2.7) If you are associated with an event you are posting about then you are required to disclose that information inside the post.
2.8) Links to a user’s blog, website, or publication may be approved, but that user is expected to participate in the /Portland community beyond simply providing a link.
For all of the above, please see Reddit's FAQ regarding what constitutes spam and guidelines for self promotion.
3) Crime posts and police case numbers - If you are posting about a missing person, stolen item or other crime or law enforcement-related event, a police case number must be included along with the contact number for the office or agency handling the case. Please do not ask for users to reply via private message or personal email, or to call/message private numbers directly. In most cases, a link to a news story will work in place of a case number. Without this information, your post may be flagged and removed by the mods.
4) Novelty and Impersonation Accounts - Accounts with usernames that represent or attempt to represent any city or state agency, any local public utility, or accounts purporting to belong to members of the press will not be allowed without being verified by the moderator team. AMAs are usually allowed but require pre-verification. If a representative of those agencies or utilities wants to create an account for the purposes of interacting with the community on an official basis, they can send a message to the moderation team for directions on how to create a verified account.
4.1) Novelty accounts may be removed.
4.2) Accounts impersonating moderators will be removed.
4.3) Bots and accounts exhibiting bot-like behavior will be removed.
5) Gore/Disturbing imagery - Images of human remains, gore, or other disturbing imagery may be removed at moderator's discretion.
6) Duplicates - Duplicate posts on the same topic may be removed if the original is less than 48 hours old or is a common repost. If you have additional information or another news source, please submit it as a comment under the original post.
7) Editorialized Headlines - Headlines should be kept original whenever possible, with your opinions reserved for the comment section. An exception which might not fall under this rule would be, for example, a general housing study not Portland-specific but with the headline changed to "An interesting look at where real estate could be heading to in Portland". Otherwise, keep headlines intact.
8) URL redirects or shorteners - Redirects or URL shorteners (e.g. Google AMP links, tinyURL, etc.) will not be allowed. This also includes archival sites.
9) AskPortland - Questions related to moving or visiting Portland may be sent to our sister sub, /AskPortland. All the same rules in /Portland will apply to /AskPortland and it will be moderated more heavily to ensure it remains a helpful place.
Approval/Removal of all posts and comments is up to moderator discretion

I'm visiting your city, what is there to do?

FIRST: read the Visitor's Guide at /AskPortland. It is updated frequently and discussion/questions are encouraged.
The greater Portland area has lots of things to see and do, from museums to a wonderful zoo to numerous parks, restaurants, coffeehouses and microbreweries. Here are a few of our local highlights:
  • The Oregon Zoo - Located in Washington Park just off Highway 26 west of downtown, the Oregon Zoo was founded in 1888, making it the oldest zoo west of the Mississippi. Home to 2,200 animals from more than 260 species, the zoo is probably most famous for its herd of five Asian elephants in their new Elephant Lands exhibit. Hours vary by season, usually around 9-10am until 4-6pm. Admission during peak season (Mar.-Sept.) is $14.95 adults / $9.95 kids (ages 3-11), during off-peak season (Oct.-Feb) is $9.95 adults / $4.95 kids, and toddlers are always free. It’s recommended that you take the MAX light rail Red Line or Blue Lines to get there, as you won't have to pay for parking (which can run up to $6), and you'll get $1.50 off your admission. The MAX stop for the Zoo is Washington Park Station -- at 260 feet below the surface it’s the deepest transit station in North America! Plan on your stay being more than just a quick jaunt, as the zoo is quite extensive. In addition to seeing the many animals, you can also ride the Washington Park and Zoo Railway, a ⅝ scale narrow-gauge railway with classic trains that roll around the zoo and out to the Rose Test Gardens. The cost to ride the train is $4.00. During the summer you can stake out a spot on the lawn for the [Oregon Zoo Summer Concert Series](www.zooconcerts.com), and more during the holiday season more than a million LEDs light up the zoo each holiday season for ZooLights. For more information go to www.oregonzoo.org
  • The International Rose Test Garden - Part of Washington Park, the International Rose Test Garden is a beautifully manicured set of gardens featuring over 7,000 individual rose specimens from over 550 different varieties. The roses bloom from April through October with the peak coming in June, depending on the weather. Founded in 1917, it is the oldest continuously operating rose test garden in the United States. An amphitheater often features classical music performances or speeches. Its 4.5 acres of terraced hillside offer stunning views of Mt. Hood and downtown Portland, and its quiet nature is excellent for picnics. For more information, go here: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/parks/findeindex.cfm?&action=ViewPark&propertyid=1113
  • Oregon Museum of Science and Industry - OMSI is a large museum similar to San Francisco's Exploratorium. Its exhibits cover everything from geology to physics to chemistry to biology to human anatomy. It often hosts touring exhibits -- past examples include Body Worlds, an exhibit of da Vinci's notebooks with examples of his inventions, Grossology, and a National Geographic photography exhibit. OMSI also boasts the USS Blueback, a decommissioned Barbel-class submarine that was used in the filming of The Hunt for Red October and an episode of TNT’s The Librarians. You can tour the submarine, learn about how it was made and what Barbel-class submarines were used for during the Cold War. OMSI also has a recently remodeled planetarium that offers night-sky presentations and laser light shows, and an IMAX theater (called OMNIMAX) which runs both current-release movies and educational programs on a 5-story-high screen using dual Christie 4K projectors and Dolby Atmos audio. Admission to the museum is $14.50 for adults, $9.75 for kids. The submarine tour, planetarium, and OMNIMAX cost extra, in the $6-8 range depending on the toushow. Hours are daily 9:30-7 during the summer and Tuesday-Saturday 9:30-5:30 during the winter. For more info, go to www.omsi.edu
  • Oregon Historical Society - The history of Portland and the Oregon Territory is fascinating in a lot of respects, and the OHS does its best to cover it all. From the original native inhabitants to the adventures of the Lewis and Clark Expedition to the Oregon Trail to the founding and development of Portland, OHS has numerous displays and artifacts, as well as a massive catalog of historical documents. If you wish to learn about the history of the area, there is no better resource. Admission to the museum is free for Multnomah County residents, otherwise it’s $11 for adults, $9 for students/seniors, and $5 for kids (6-18yrs). There is no charge for admission to the research library. Hours are Monday-Saturday, 10am-5pm and Sunday Noon-5pm. For more info, go to www.ohs.org
  • Portland Art Museum - Right across the street from the Oregon Historical Society, the Portland Art Museum hosts numerous rotating exhibits and touring exhibits of art from all genres. Its recent acquisition of the massive Masonic Temple next door means they now have extensive room in which to display art from all over the world, everything from classical Greek sculpture to modern impressionism to an exhibit on cars. Admission is $19.99 for adults, $16.99 for students/seniors, and children 17 and under are free. The Museum is closed on Monday, and open the rest of the week from 10am to either 5pm or 8pm depending on the day, so check the website before visiting: www.portlandartmuseum.org
  • The Old Portland Underground - Portland's history includes a shady portion of its past, and the Underground seeks to show that. Also known as The Shanghai Tunnels, the Underground is a series of interconnected basements, tunnels, and low passageways from early in Portland's life. Considered by many to be haunted, it's a must for those who like the dark, scary atmosphere of basements and crawl spaces. Tours are conducted on Friday and Saturday evenings, the first Thursday evening of the month, and possibly by request. Check out www.shanghaitunnels.info for tour scheduling and ticket prices.
  • Waterfront and Esplanade - As the Willamette River flows from south to north towards the Columbia River, it cuts the city in two, providing plenty of opportunity for parks by the water. In the 1970s, the west bank’s Harbor Drive was demolished (the first example of freeway removal in the US!) and replaced by Tom McCall Waterfront Park, made up of 36+ acres of cherry trees, grassy lawns, concrete walkways, sculptures, a public fountain, and numerous memorials. This park often hosts major events such as the Rose Festival rides and food court, the Waterfront Blues Festival, the Bite of Oregon, the Oregon Brewer's Festival, and moorage for the naval ships that come to Portland during the Rose Festival Fleet Week. Salmon Street Springs is a popular local hangout during the warmer months, and the multi-phase fountain is designed for children to play in. Across the river, a 1998 city parks project created the Vera Katz Eastbank Esplanade, a 1.5 mile walking and bike path that mirrors Waterfront Park. Combining the two with sidewalks across the Hawthorne and Steel Bridges creates a wonderful walking/jogging/biking path that's slightly over 3 miles. Check out http://eventful.com/portland_ovenues/governor-tom-mccall-waterfront-park-/V0-001-000457577-8 to find out what events may be taking place there.
  • Pioneer Courthouse Square - Often referred to as "Portland's living room," the Square is a city block of brick work that hosts numerous city events, public speakers, our city Christmas Tree, and a place to stop and enjoy your lunch. Surrounded by shopping and large buildings, it's an open-air square with a continuous fountain and surrounded by large white columns. Our NBC affiliate has a satelite studio that looks onto the square, so you may see yourself on the news at some point. During July and August, every Friday night they show movies on a projection screen in an event known as Flicks on the Bricks. This coincides with a summer concert series called Noon Toons, which showcases local bands and is aired live by the NBC affiliate. www.thesquarepdx.org will have more info on events currently happening.
  • Blazers Basketball/Winterhawks Hockey/Timbers SocceThorns Soccer - Portland now boasts four professional sports teams: The Western Division NBA Trail Blazers, the Western Hockey League Winterhawks, Major League Soccer Timbers FC, winners of the 2015 MLS Cup, and the current National Women's Soccer League champion Thorns FC. The Trail Blazers and Winterhawks both play at the Rose Quarter, while the Timbers and Thorns play at Providence Park. Tickets for Blazers/Winterhawks events are available at www.rosequarter.com as well as a game schedule. We have a large soccer following in this city, and you can easily have a great time and make new friends at a Timbers game or watching it at one of our many sports bars (for example, 442, Thirsty Lion, and Marathon). You can find a list of Timbers Pub Partners here.
  • There are many more, www.travelportland.com/things-to-see-and-do will have many more ideas.
Other possible FAQ topics:

Where are the best views of the city?

Where can I go for a hike?

Where can I volunteer

Multnomah Falls/Gorge/Eagle Creek fire

I've got kids with me, what kind of child-oriented stuff is there?

  • Both the earlier mentioned Oregon Zoo and OMSI are both extremely kid friendly, and appropriate for just about any age. Toddlers may be a bit over-stimulated by OMSI, and the Zoo is quite large, so prepare accordingly. Our sports teams are also an option if your child is old enough to handle the noise levels.
  • Portland Children's Museum - An interactive educational museum and play center which shares a parking lot with the Oregon Zoo. Activities include a pretend veterinarian, a stage filled with props and costumes, places to draw and work clay, a rubber gravel pit for digging, a water area filled with pipes and water tables for splashing and making channels, and an enormous over-sized Lite-Brite wall. Admission is $9 per person. Hours can vary, see www.portlandcm.org for details.
  • Oaks Amusement Park - Step back into the heyday of roller rinks and small-town theme parks. Oaks Amusement Park has been a mainstay of Portland since 1905, opening with the Lewis and Clark Exposition. It features a roller coaster, go-karts, fairway rides, an arcade, outdoor picnic areas, and it's center attraction, an original 100 foot x 200 foot wooden roller skating rink. Outdoor activities are usually closed during the winter months, but skating is year round. Prices vary depending on what you wish to do with your day there, so look up www.oakspark.com for pricing, hours, and availability.

I'm moving to Portland, where should I live?

Portland, while not being very large geographically, is still pretty diverse in its cultures, tastes, and housing. Everything from major mansions to low-income housing is out there, and in a relatively small area. The best way to think about Portland is to realize it's made up of neighborhoods, most of which come from Portland's history and were originally their own small towns.
This is a good map of Portland's named neighborhoods.
The best idea is to find a location that is close to where you need to be on a regular basis (school, work, studio, family) but that also works well with your lifestyle. A good reference for deciding on what neighborhood will fit your lifestyle is The Portland Neighborhood Pages. Each of Portland's 95 neighborhoods is available with a general description, links to events/info of local import, and a google map of the area. Another more general resource is The Portland Neighborhood Guide, which is broader in it's focus and covers some of the cities and towns to the west.
As for looking for housing, www.padmapper.com is excellent for Portland, as is portland.craigslist.org and www.couchsurfing.org for more temporary accommodations. Keep in mind our rental market is extremely competitive. In 2013 our rental vacancy rate was only 3.1%, the second-lowest in the nation. You will want to budget for turning in a lot of applications, and may need to plan on attending open houses even for a small rental.
For people with children, schools are important, and another consideration when moving here. www.greatschools.org/oregon/portland rates all of the local schools on academics, test results, and community reviews.

I need some Internet service. What are my options?

Currently there are basically two main options for high speed internet in the city proper, Comcast and Centurylink. Some areas have Frontier FiOS available, primarily outside the city. Another option available is 4G wireless through Clear. If you're looking for other options or want to see personal recommendations, this search should bring up quite a few lively threads on the state of internet providers in the metro area. In the future there is the possibility of Google Fiber for the city, but the options remain limited for now.

I'm looking for somewhere to eat, what sounds good?

You're in luck. Portland has an extensive and diverse food culture, much of it based around our extensive collection of food carts. Currently 475 carts operate within the city limits, with more being added all the time. They can be as eclectic as they are varied, offering everything from standard lunch fair of burgers and hotdogs, to more unique food like Ethiopian cuisine, Korean BBQ, Viking Soul Food, and gourmet waffles. www.foodcartsportland.com has a full list of the Portland carts, as well as reviews on each one and a map of locations. Many of them are centered in what are known as "cart pods," which are sections of parking lots that have been converted into open-air food markets. For local redditor recommendations, read through this thread. You'll see some names pop up more than once, those would be the ones to try out first. A good way to find something near you is to use Cartattack, which gives you cart locations via GPS.
Beyond that, there are numerous eateries, restaurants, diners, and 24-hour places that serve Portlanders great food. http://www.urbanspoon.com/c/24/Portland-restaurants.html is probably your best resource for finding something more substantial in terms of sit-down eating.
Finally, there is one thing that Portland is well known for: Beer. Portland has numerous microbreweries and brewpubs, and consistently vies for the top spot in breweries per capita in the world. From IPAs to Stouts to Ambers and everything in between, Portland can and will offer you some of the best beer in the world. www.portlandbrewpubs.com has a full list of brewpubs, most of which offer tasting options or tours of the brewing facilities. Take a load off, kick back with a nice pint of something local, and enjoy the Portland experience!!

How do I get to Portland?

  • By car - If you are coming to Portland from outside the state, there are three major freeways that can get you here. From the south, I-5 will get you to Portland via Grants Pass, Medford, Eugene, and Salem from the California border in about 5-6 hours. It should be noted that during the winter months the areas around Grants Pass can have severe weather, and the pass may be closed or require traction devices. From the east, I-84 heads to Portland via Ontario, Pendleton, The Dalles, and Hood River. The drive from the Idaho border will take you around 7-8 hours. Again, weather can impact this drive, and closures/traction device requirements may occur. From the north, I-5 and I-205 cross the Columbia River from Washington, putting you directly into Portland. It takes about three hours to make the 175-mile drive from Seattle, but this time can be significantly impacted by traffic.
  • By car, the scenic way - Oregon is a naturally beautiful state, so if you have the time to take a longer drive, there are several recommendations. Highway 101 up the coast from California to Astoria and then Hwy 30 in to Portland is one such drive. It hits several small coastal communities along the way, with numerous points of interest. That drive will add 3-4 hours to your trip, but is worth the sights. Going through the east side and experiencing the high desert is another consideration. For this route take Hwy 97 from I-5 at Mt Shasta, and follow it up through Klamath Falls, then Bend, to the town of Madras. From there, take Hwy 26 and cross over Mt. Hood and into Portland. Both of these routes can be significantly impacted by weather, so look for closures or traction device requirements. This is especially true of Hwy 26 over Mt. Hood, as this reaches a peak height of over 4000 feet above sea level.
Add link to TripCheck.com
  • By bus - Two major bus services serve travelers in the Portland area. Greyhound has its bus terminal on the same property as Union station, and makes runs on the north/south route of I-5, east via I-84 and Hwy 26, and west via Hwy 26. Ticket prices and schedules are available on their website.
  • By rail - Amtrak serves Portland via the north/south routes through Union Station, which is located right in the heart of downtown Portland. Ticket prices and schedules will vary depending on your starting location, so go to www.amtrak.com to find out what is available and how much it will cost.
  • By plane - The major airport in Portland is called Portland International Airport, known as PDX (a term often used as a nickname for Portland in general), and offers most major airline services, as well as international flights. It is located in Northeast Portland, and is located between I-5 and I-205. Our light rail service has a line that terminates just next to baggage claim, and is a useful way to get to and from the airport without the hassle of parking a car. www.trimet.org can be used to plan your trip there.

How do I get around town?

  • By foot - Portland is a city of sidewalks, for the most part. Much of the downtown core and surrounding areas feature wide sidewalks with large cross-walks and timed lights. So if you are staying downtown, you don't need to get a bus or cab, walking is the easy way to go. It also allows you to sample the food carts, find the odd and interesting shops, and generally enjoy the greenery and friendly people. Keep in mind that downtown Portland has much smaller blocks than most cities, so a walk of several blocks isn’t necessarily that far.
  • By bike - Portland is currently considered to be one of the best bike cities in the US. 314 miles of bike lanes and a culture accepting of two-wheeled transport means that getting out for a ride is much easier here. Many of the smaller coffee shops and restaurants quite happily advertise bike parking, and the city is currently working on a 2-year backlog of installing public bike racks. Your best bet would be to go to www.portlandoregon.gov/transportation/36638 and pick up a map or two of places you'd like to ride. Add Biketown info
  • By bus/light rail - TriMet is Portland's regional mass transit provider, and has bus, light rail, and streetcar service. www.trimet.org has a trip planner (just need to know your address and the address or name of the location you want to get to) which will tell you how long of a wait you may have, how far you may need to walk, or how many buses you may need to take.
  • By taxi - Numerous taxi services operate in Portland, however it's not like in the bigger cities where there are fleets of them floating around waiting to pick you up. Your best bet would be to call and order a car to pick you up. Recommendations are to go with the larger, well-known companies like Radio Cab or Broadway.
  • By rental car - The usual fare of major car rental companies are available in Portland. Enterprise, Hertz, National and Budget Car Rentals all have several locations in Portland. However, as with any company that owns a chain of stores, your experience may vary depending on the location you go to. It's recommended that you search reviews for each location before picking one. Another option is Car2Go, a company that offers car sharing services for those who need a car occasionally but don't use one often. They have both gas and electric versions of the Smartcar FourTwo, and have approximately 250 cars in Portland. Go to their website for details concerning pricing and agreements.
  • By personal car - Much of the downtown core and portions of the surrounding area are built on a one-way grid system. So it helps to have a GPS or at least a good map to get around. One thing to remember, is that streets that run parallel to the river are all numbered, and the numbers get bigger as you move away from the river. So if you get lost, just find a numbered street, and head downhill. Admittedly, Portland can have issues with traffic during rush hour, so it's advised to travel the back roads a bit and find ways to avoid the three Interstate freeways and major highways during the 6-9am and 4-6pm times. Add info about Burnside/Willamette dividing into NSEW quadrants?

What resources are available for bicyclists?

Two great web resources are /CyclePDX and Bike Portland.

I've got stuff that I need to get rid of, but it shouldn't go in the trash. What should I do?

There's help for that. Metro has a great website that offers insight on how to get rid of anything from packing peanuts to propane canisters to power tools, this site will give you the info to trash, turn in, reuse, or recycle those things that you just can't have floating around anymore.
If you want to get rid of computers that are still in decent repair, look into www.freegeek.org as they provide refurbished computers to schools and those in need. They are also set up as a way for people to learn about computers through free classes and volunteers who work on everything from cleaning dirty machines to building computers.
Another option is SCRAP PDX, which is a non-profit recycling center for office or classroom materials. Designed as a way to inspire creativity while reducing garbage and encouraging reuse and recycling, SCRAP PDX offers a way for people to drop off unwanted or unused arts and crafts, office, party, or school supplies, which are then resold to those who made need them for their own projects. Further details are at their website.

My pet is sick and needs a vet NOW. Where should I go?

Portland has several area vet hospitals, several of which are 24-hour intake facilities. Locations and providers can vary, so check to see which one is closest and best for your pet. Below is a list of the larger and reputable locations in Portland:

How does one cope with downtown living?

Written by shamann00dle
This is expounding on this thread. Living in downtown has it's own unique challenges and rewards. Here are some ways I dealt with things in my 8 years downtown.
Drunks & Crazies Keeping You Up
  • Expect it. That does not mean it is right, but the fact of the matter is downtown Portland at night is full of douche-y suburbanites that will do stuff downtown that they would call 911 on you for doing in their neighborhood, drug addicts/alcoholics and the mentally ill. Let their douchiness flow through you and out the other side lest you be swept into the maelstrom of asshattery.
  • Portland Police non-emergency number: 503-823-3333 - If someone is lingering and being loud, call.
  • For drunks that are passed out, etc. Call CHIERS - the local drunk tank - (503) 294-1681
  • If you are in their service area, call Clean and Safe at 503-224-7383. If you call police with a non-emergency that is probably a non-arrestable offense within that map between 9-5, they are simply going to ask Clean and Safe to handle it anyways. Don't expect C&S to do too much. They carry a gun and are retired cops, but have no authority to arrest. They are there to move people along, write reports and call the cops if it gets too bad.
  • If the person is in a park downtown, the Park Rangers now have jurisdiction unless it is a 911 emergency - 503-823-1637
  • If the drunk is hanging outside a particular bar, store, grocery store or restaurant and being loud - call that establishment and have their security go outside and shut them up. Many times this is actually what the police do when you call them for a disturbance.
  • Use a combination of the pink noise at http://simplynoise.com/ and a fan. I found that combination block out all but the most egregious drunktards.
Trouble On The Streets
  • I lived and worked downtown plus walked everywhere I went for the time I lived there. I only had one full-blown altercation in all that time and could have avoided that if I'd chosen too. Don't expect any trouble but be aware of your surroundings. You are more likely to encounter annoyances rather than an actual problem on the streets of downtown.
  • Also call clean and safe if there is a part of downtown that needs to be cleaned, various human excretions, dirty needles and the like.
  • IF you run into trouble downtown, it will most likely happen after 10 PM or so between SW Broadway and the river and SW Washington and the train station.
  • Use the numbers above for non-911 problems.
Annoyances
  • Panhandlers. There are days I would get hit up for change 20 times or more. If the person is aggressive, please call police. Ignoring them just means that many more people will have to deal with it. How you interact with panhandlers is up to you, your personality and tolerance level. When I moved here I gave out change, then I started saying "sorry" when they asked, then I put in earbuds and pretended not to hear them even if I had no music on, the I dropped the pretense and just ignored them unless they were offensive... I'm sure on bad days I told a couple to get fucked but there was really no need for that. PLEASE do NOT give panhandlers money. I'm could write a novel about this, homelessness in Portland, services and ways of really helping these people. The change is perpetuating all sorts of problems. I will address this in the comments if needed.
  • Chuggers AKA "Charity Muggers". These are the people that stand on the corner and ask you if you want to help the whales or orphaned children. I've dealt with them in the same way I've dealt with panhandlers. Once the rainy season ends, expect them to descend on every street corner downtown.
The Up-Side
  • Too much to list here really
  • You are living in a really fucking cool city
  • Just going for a short walk can be quite an experience. You never know what you will see
  • There is a lot to see and do on foot. Get out and enjoy the parks, museums, people watching, bars and more.
  • Remember all the great stuff and try to focus on that when some wino decides to pick a fight with a newspaper vending machine at 3 in the morning.

Why are there fighter jets flying over the city?

The Oregon Air National Guard’s 142nd Fighter Wing (the “Redhawks”) operates F-15C/D Eagle fighter jets out of the Portland Air National Guard Base at Portland International Airport. They are on 24-hour alert as part of Air Combat Command and the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), and can frequently be seen in the skies throughout the region.
You can find more information in this detailed explanation at PortlandMofo: Military Jets Over Portland Today Explanation

What was that loud noise/bang/explosion?

No idea. I’m sure there will be any number of posts about it soon.

What are the flickering orange things sometimes seen floating in the sky?

Those are the star ships of the alien sex goddesses that live in a pleasure dome that orbits just outside the Kuiper Belt. Sometimes they descend to earth to collect a few worthy humans to bring back with them to shower with fruity champagne cocktails and watermelon balls.
But no, really those are just paper lanterns that are part of some festivals sometimes, or maybe goofs launch them to cause confusion and mayhem.
