RYL Moderators Introduce Themselves!

Welcome to the RYL Moderators!

We work here to help keep the website a safe, happy, and comfortable place for you to get the help, support and friendship that you need from a website.

You can see both teams of us around, our usernames are red or green, depending on which team we are on, and you can see us on the staff listings page, too.

The people with red names are forums mods. They oversee the forums and make sure it it free from rule breaking and spam. If you think a post in the forums is breaking the RYL rules, you can post report it by pressing the report button at the bottom of each post. You can PM any forum mod if you have a problem with the forums or email the team at

The head of forums is random.swirls

The green named people are the chat moderators. They keep the chat rooms under control and deal with trolls. If you think that something in chat is breaking the RYL rules, or if something makes you uncomfortable, please report it to us!. You can PM any chat mod or contact the team at

The head of chat is griddlebone.

The current chat mods are:

And with that said, this is our team!

There are times to stay put, and what you want will come to you.
But there are times to go out into the world and find such a thing for yourself.

I aint no abacus but you can count on me.

Hello :) I'm Hannah, I'm a new forum mod.

I've been a member of RYL for longer than I care to admit to and spend far too much time here! I have an addiction to volunteering, and a bunch of old lady hobbies like cross stitch and scottish country dance.

I like PMs, so feel free to get in touch.

"I know you're sad, so I won't tell you to have a good day. Instead, I advise you to simply have a day.
Stay alive, feed yourself well, wear comfortable clothes, and don't give up on yourself just yet.
It'll get better. Until then, have a day."

I guess I should introduce myself! I'm Kat (or Anna, or any combination of the two!) I've been around for 2 years or so and have recently become a chat mod.

I'm 30 years old, been married for almost 10 years, and have two kids (a son who is 7 and a daughter who is nearly 10 months).

Sometimes when I say "I'm okay," I want someone to look me in the eyes, hug me tight, and say "I know you're not."

I'm Claire, I'm a forum mod, and rubbish at writing things like this (I've been putting it off for ages!). I'm 25 and I've been on RYL since 2007.

I work in social care, which is generally alright but supremely busy and I have a bit of a gym addiction, but in a good way.

If you've got any issues, please just PM me, I'm about most evenings on here.

Hi I am Sarah and a new mod. I have been on RYL for a number of years on and off, I have probably been around this time for about 3 years.

I am a postgraduate student which means I am often busy and more often looking for distractions from my work!

I'm generally friendly and don't tend to bite so feel free to PM me
