Information about the News and Debate forum - Please read before posting!
Dear Member,

Welcome to the new 'News and Debate' forum!

RYL v3 has become a great deal more interesting to post on than v2 was, with structure and rule changes which have meant for more stimulating discussions - something I welcome.

The News and Debate forum furthers this - by providing an area specifically to discuss news surrounding all RYL topics, such as Suicide, depression, stress, self harm, eating disorders, and a whole lot more.

I have set up a simple rule for threads, so that it can be clear what is what in here :

Use the following Posticons when making new threads, please!

News -

Debate -


Now, having an area for debate and discussion could be letting us in for problems with members disagreeing and arguing. Therefore, I must stress this forum is a privilege and not a right - and members can be excluded from this forum (leaving the others) if they repeatedly cause trouble.

Biting your tongue is important at RYL, and while positive, stimulating debate is the goal of this forum, Mods will act on any posts that flame any other members, or which break any of the other rules.

We will try to be as fair and open and reasonable as possible in here - but how relaxed it stays depends entirely on how people use it. Rather than tighten rules to compensate (and over time making it less and less 'free) for members causing trouble or being offensive, we will simply remove access for that member.

Feel free to post your own News and Debate subjects - this is what it is all about, however, subjects that are deemed to contentious may be moved or edited, and please stay on topics which RYL supports, rather than posting general news and gossip.

Many Thanks and I hope you enjoy the News and Debate!

Hahaha. I think I'm gonna have to come with a disclaimer coz I used to get accused of causing huge arguments on v2 when I never meant to!

Jelly Fairy 09-09-2007 12:07 PM

Good Idea....but would this be better attached to a forum other than General Chat - as General Chat is meant to avoid any mention of SH etc.

claireyfairy 09-09-2007 12:41 PM

I love reading a good meaty debate xD

Harley 09-09-2007 07:02 PM

Jelly, I would agree with that - and was thinking of putting it on to GSA anyway, then send out a PM to everyone letting them know - just wanted to stick it here for a while to gather some attention :)
