How to label threads correctly in the reviews and recommendations forum
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, many of which are self explanatory, although futher description is placed in brackets by some of them.
List of Labels to be used in the Reviews and Recommendations forum:
(This is to be used when the discussion of, say, a film or a book contains triggering content.)
(This is to be used when the discussion of a film/book etc contains the theme of sexual abuse. The label is NOT to be shortened to SA.)
(This is to be used when the discussion of a film/book etc contains the theme of physical abuse.)
(This is to be used when the discussion of a film/book etc contains the theme of an Eating Disorder, and is triggering.)
(This is to be used when the discussion of a film/book etc contains adult material (of a sexual nature.))
(This is to be used when the discussion of a film/book etc contains the theme of suicide. This label must NOT be shortened to SU or SUI.)
(The labels are to be used when discussing a film/book etc which contains the theme of self injury/self harm.)
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!
