How to label threads correctly in General Chat [please read].

How to label threads correctly in General Chat.

A clear list of correct labelling has been produced to try and protect RYL's members who could be accidently triggered by a post's contents if they do not realise what it contains. RYL's aim is to encourage recovery and the lack of clear labelling and the consequence of accidently triggering undermines this aim.

Please keep in mind the sensitive nature of many members when posting and remember that a simple label can remove the type of problems mentioned above. Also, please try and post in an appropriate forum so your thread recieves the proper attention and advice.

Below is a list of labels, a basic guideline to what you should include in your title bar of any post you make in general chat, many of which are self explanatory, although futher description is placed in brackets by some of them.

List of Labels that can be used in Genral Chat:

(Any post discussing something related to things such as sex etc. must be labelled to discourage younger members viewing potentially innappropriate conversation.)

*Image Heavy*
Chances are that there are RYL members who are using dial up, or just do not have a very good internet connection, letting them know your thread contains a lot of images before they click it can save them a lot of problems.

Can everyone also be aware that shortening labels can cause confusion and, therefore, undermines the benefits of having them. It is better to have a slightly longer title with clear labels than shortened ones that may cause a member to be triggered.
Finally, if you're not sure whether a label should be included or not, add it anyway - it's better to be safe than sorry!

Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes but when you look back, everything is different…

you once called your brain a hard drive, well say hello to the virus.
