08/15/2010 - New Rules for Blog Posts, Statuses, etc.

Do not write suicide notes here. They will be deleted when I see them and, if a member makes them more than once, then they will be unable to publish blog posts without admin approval.
If there is a misunderstanding with another member please clear it up with them through PM. Posts of accusation or contrition that sometimes involve suicide wishes/notes or saying that the OP will self-injure or wants to self-injure… just don’t.
The main site wasn’t always as busy so I hadn’t really moderated much but I think that was a mistake. Misunderstandings or fights should not lead to suicide attempts or notes or blog posts/etc. saying that a member has self-injured over it.
It’s a self-injury site and we can afford to look after one another’s well being, not add to the guilt.
Sum it up:
- no suicide notes
- if there’s an issue with another member, resolve it through PM/e-mail or by contacting the admin (me)
- if there’s an issue with another member, don’t write a followup message on the site saying you’ve self-injured or want to die because of the issue (even if you don’t outright say it’s because of it)
