Hello, I am new to this forum and forums in general, so I don't know all of the spoken & unspoken rules about posting on here. I just wanted to make sure I asked this before possibly triggering somebody or getting my post reported, but I wanted to ask: Is s****** something that can be talked about on this forum? Just wanted to make sure I know the answer before continuing to make more posts. Thanks to anyone who read this and anyone who knows the answer.

Hello Justin. I am not sure what you asked as the word was censored. I am guessing you mean harming yourself? If so then you are allowed to post about it as long as it is not giving details.

Looks to me like Justin's self-censored word is *suicide*?

I don't know the guidelines over this myself. I'd imagine no methods or details would be allowed, other than that?? It would be good to have this confirmed.

Oh sorry. I must have misunderstood. In that case I am unclear too.

Ok, I just found the bit in the guidelines : it says -

'Posts containing offensive or harmful material, including explicit descriptions of self-harm methods, pro-anorexia posts and mention of specific suicide methods;' - will be edited or deleted.

Hm ok I see ... thanks for your guys' help, in that case I think its better to not mention it on the public forum, but rather see if anybody wants to pm me to help me out. Thanks again

Could you talk about it but just not mention the method?

I already made another post which I don't know to link but its titled something like (Trying to start Private Messages." In there I basically said that I don't want to mention things too much on the public forum, but that I think it would be better for people to private message me if they can help or relate :)
