Getting the most out of the Forums

Our boards are a place to come if you want to share an issue or a celebration.

Whatever your reason for visiting our forum we want you to leave with a smile on your face.

With this in mind we have a few thoughts for you to ponder...

  • Read what others have posted first. The answers you are looking for may already be here...
  • Don't forget that you can use the search. You can also search the archive...
  • Don't be scared to ask a question or make a comment...we are very friendly and the reason we are all here is for support.
  • Remember, some people will be having a particularly tough time and may be more sensitive.
  • Before posting a comment always think 'is this going to help?'
  • A great way to support others who are struggling is to talk about your own experience. If you don't want to share it publicly, drop them a private message.
  • Respect everyone's right to have their own views. Remember that everyone's experience is individual.
  • Criticism can hurt especially when you are already feeling low...
  • If you feel you are being attacked, report the post/thread to the moderation team.
  • Remember, you don't have to respond.
  • Look after yourself...remember to take regular breaks from the boards.
