Smile ~*~ Gentle Reminder on the Purpose of SOS ~*~

Survivors of Suicide
Quote:
Alffe:Who are we? And why do we hang out here?

Some of us have lost a loved one to suicide...some of us are feeling so crushed by life that we want it to end.

We come together for support..we count on each other to pick us up, dust us off and give us a reason to try some more.

We don't judge people in this forum and we ask not to be judged ourselves.
When you share here, we promise to listen with our hearts.

All are welcome....especially lurkers!
First of all we are here to offer and receive support. That may come in may different avenues.

Straying from the main purpose of the forum once in awhile is fine.

We all need to keep in mind of the people that are reading here for help. Most will never join, but do get help from what we have posted.

I am gently asking that SOS not be used for so much OT, but that those posts and threads be made in the appropriate forums.

this is absolutly not about you or anyone in particular.

doc made the other type of forums, like social and emotional support, so the forums don't end up with too much OT. going OT is fine. we just need to watch how much we do it.

I agree...so thumps to the head and earpulling at the same time to moi....

my apology IS sincere...I DID go overboard...no excuses...

so, I hope a lot of lurkers read here and know that they are SAFE to come in here and talk about the TOPIC...SOS...

and yes, I KNOW it's not about moi...LMAO.....

well, I will bow out gracefully before I put anymore foot in my mouth...

I will see you all when I can "calm" down.......

oh...i forgot to add..

it does help if the off topic threads are title with an OT. that will help those not wishing to read OT threads.

the wonder threads don't need that.

don't forget to put a link inthe wonder thread to other threads you make in the other forums.

what i mean is like when cheryl mentioned her thread on stumble inn about the portland trip, to include a link. or if other ot type of posts are made on social that you want sos members to be included or know about.

I am sorry too for taking threads off topic. I will follow directions more closely in the future. My sincere apologies to the rest of the forum.

My apologies to everyone also. I will behave...

Maybe we can get a fun room like the mser's stumble inn.... ?

That way we can still be silly with each other but others don't have to shuffle through the ot stuff.

Just my two pennies worth...

hmmmmm, I am trying to word this without offence to anyone, not an easy feat!

I do understand and agree 100% that there should be ON topic threads, and I also agree that this is vital to the lurkers.. Being one myself this past March, I do know how important that is. In all honesty, that is why I posted about my Dad and the song the other night.

I see no easy way to say this, so I guess I will just blurt this out there.....
I want very much to respect NT and the SOS forum. I am hoping this isn't aimed at the Sleepless at SOS forum? If it is please let me know that too!

But, I do hope it isn't. I have to tell you ...last night was the first time I have slept more than 2 to 3 hours in one night since March. I truly believe it was because I had laughed so much with my SOS family. Social chat etc, would not be the same. We have a connection here, and it is with you all that I wish to not only share the tears and sorrow, but the laughs as well.
