Sometimes it's important to have a place where you can rant or look for comfort away from the people you know. This community is dedicated (like many others) to give support and help to anyone who needs it.
In order for this community to be treated properly, we do encourage that you follow a few small rules.
*Put pictures and long rants/surveys behind an ljcut. *NO racism or facism *Do not insult or post rude comments *Do not taunt or 'jeer' anyone *Please do not encourage suicide or seriously harmful behaviours *We DO allow advertising, but please i) ask before you put anything up (contact a maintainer) and ii) ensure that the community or whatever you are advertising is relevant to our community
If you need to contact either of us, please feel free to.
If you're new, introduce yourself, either your own way or with a survey (This one's an example, you can use whatever)
