Opinions needed?

Post  Owen on Sat Aug 27, 2011 4:22 pm

I was thinking of adding some forum parts...

mainly a small eating disorder section for ED vents and things as the last site was non-ED talk and we had to go to different sites to vent ect... it will only be small tho and not too amazing... just a small thingy really I dunno... that we keep seperate and stuff from SI related stuff...

and A "Competitions" thing too... we can have ermmm a forum part where we have competitions once a month or something... "best painting" and "best poem" and ect ect... write/draw it... PM to a Mod/admin/me/staff members... then we post it in the comp thread for that month and people decide which they like best... "entry 5 was the best poem" for example... then we reveal "Entry 5 is JaneDoe, congrats!" type thingy ect... (shoutout for my Owner JaneDoe lol)

good ideas? or am I just going toooooo much with forum and we should leave it as it is type thing?

I don't want to add loads and loads of stuff and never use it or cause problems and I'm kindof new at this so thought opinions needed for my dumb ideas hahaha cohi gah so tired today lol

ok so opinions please Razz

I think they're good ideas GDM. So may peopl have ED's, and I think a lot of times they closely tie in with self harm. So, in my opinion, I think having a small section just to talk about them a little is a great idea.

As for the competitions section, I think that's a good idea, too. It would be fun, and, who doesn't like to be competitor or judge? ^_^ Just one question though, are people who submitted allowed to vote? I guess you'd have to write a set of rules for it. Wink

Well, have a great day and good luck deciding! Smile

I think the idea for an ED section is amazing! And the competition is also a really good idea. Good thinking, GDM!

I think both ideas are fab! Usually people have to do their vents about ED-related things in "other si stuff" or in their journals, so I think having a proper section for it would be great.

I also love the idea of competitions! It would be a positive thing for people to focus on, and who doesn't love the chance to get creative and take part in friendly competitions? (: xox

I feel like an ED section would be a great idea. I'm in wobbly recovery from mine, but there are times when it would be nice to have somewhere to rant, or ask/give advice.

DIFFERENT OPINION NEEDED!

Post  Owen on Wed Sep 07, 2011 11:27 pm

Ermmm... debate section?

to debate stuff... but keep it frendly! lol don't want us all arguing... we just debating...

can be things such as "is Thinsperation triggering?" (this is where the debate section come from lol)

or we can have "is SI actually addictive?" and so on ect ect....

maybe it will be TERRIBLE idea as we'd start to fight and hate each others opinions maybe... so...


OPINIONS PLEASE!

thx

Thats not a bad idea, I used to love debating! Could think of plenty of topics too

a. Do you believe in counting days you have been si free? I have noticed a new idea that this can be damaging especially when you have a slip up. Plus I think that its easier to reach 10days when its not on your mind constantly!
b. The pros and cons of medication usage in the treatment of self harm

I think it's a good idea GenderDisphoriaMuch (I just felt like writing out your whole name?). I doubt we'd all end up hating each other. We would just have civil disagreements. :)

All in all, debates are fun, and I need someone to debate with other than my dad and sister. lol they always end up winning. . . :/

So, please have a debate section! Either way works, though. :) Thank you for reading this. :)

I think a debate section would be a good idea. It could easily be regulated with a few simple rules, such as forbidding ad hominem attacks.

Soul Knife, reasoned debate isn't the same thing as idealistic arguing. It is an exchange of point and counterpoint, conducted for intellectual exercise. If you tend to become too emotional when in a disagreement with another, I suggest debate would be good for your intellectual and emotional health. If nothing else, it will help you separate your heart from your head...wisdom every person is better off for having.
