Guide to Health and Relationships Forum - Please Read Before Posting


Hello and Welcome to the Health and Relationships Forum. Here you can post discussions which are based on real life which we urge members to consider when posting. Please note that threads involving illegal activities are not allowed and will be removed. Discussions can include:

Dating & Relationships
Sex and Sexuality
Depression and Anxiety

What is considered SPAM?

Very short posts that do not add value to the current discussion, such as a post with only the words "yeah me too!".

Double posts. If you posted something and realized you made a mistake, use the edit/delete option.

Off topic posts will be either removed by the moderator.

Posts that obviously serve no purpose other than uping one's post counts.

Posts like "X, I have a question for you" are considered to be spam. As they deviate from the thread's purpose and should be done via private messaging.

Starting a new thread when a very similar thread has already been started very recently.

Stating your vote in a poll thread with no explanation.

Any other posts that we deem inappropriate for other readers.

Responses to spam posts should be considered as spam and will be removed.

Restating someone else's opinion, or reanswering a question that has already been answered. Some members up their post count by reanswering a question in exactly the same way. "Yeah, what he said."

Posts that contain large amounts of smileys and/or spaces to make it look like they contain useful information often don't. Be aware of those tactics to quickly up post count.

Mature Content Threads & Sexual Content

You might see a thread with the prefix of "Mature Content".
This acts as a warning, to younger people.

Sexual content is not permitted except in the most general context. This site is rated for all ages.

Usage of the Anonymous Function

Tick the Make Post Anonymously box at the top.
Bearing in mind, it is no way to hide from mods. Moderators are aware of who you are, so unless post anonymously to give advice, then your posts will be removd.
