Dealingwithdepression Rules

We don't have many rules here on DWD and those we do have are mostly common sense.

1. You agree that you are OVER 18 in order to use the forum. If you are under 18 then please contact alternative organisations such as Childline for support if you cannot talk to those around you.

2. Please remember that what you post needs to be suitable for all - if it isn't then please post in the relevant section or mark your post so that people are aware of the content. Please mark as follows:

*SH* - Indicates a post/thread contains references to SELF HARM

*suicide* - indicates mentions of suicide

*over 18 only* - only for over 18's - these will be generally moved to the over 18 section

3. Please be polite to each other. DWD Mods and Admin do not tolerate anything which can be offensive, harassing or bullying to anyone else.

4. Your online safety is down to you. Do not give out personal or online information on the forum. Remember to hide your email address in your profile.

5. Please do not post links which lead to sites where you have to fill in spam to claim free gifts. No one likes spam...

6. Remember that the mods and admin are only here to help. We will always try to help. If you need to raise an issue with someone please do so via pm. Comments made on the forum which are negative to the mods/admin will be removed and dealt with via pm.

7. Do not use the colours green, blue or red please as these are reserved for mods and admin.

8. Please do not spam, it's just not nice!

9. Mods and Admin have the right to remove any thread which they feel needs to be removed without prior warning.

10. Mods and Admin will remove any thread which suggests that a member has harmed themselves if they do not post again within two hours to let everyone know that they are safe. Threads of this nature cause worry for all members and can be a trigger to others.

11. In an emergency situation Mods and Admin reserve the right to contact the emergency services or relevant external agencies.

As always should you require any clarification on any of these rules please contact a member of the Mods and Admin team.

Thank you!
