Post of The Month (July)

Aidan is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey Lucie,

You say you're still on medication and have had lots of therapy? Maybe it's a matter of revisiting old coping techniques and anything else like that, that therapy taught you?

And Drea is absolutely right! Even someone with everything material that they could ever want isn't insusceptible to mental illness. Any sex, race, age, class; it doesn't discriminate...

  • About this forum (Creative)

    This corner of the forum to allow people to express themselves. That could mean poetry, scribblings, whole novels, music, art, film - whatever you've created yourself.

    And that's the main point, this is about what you've created. It can be an online portfolio with no feedback, a chance to check something specific or your opportunity to throw your stuff out to everyone to feedback on.

    This can also be a place to discuss being creative, the websites, tools and advice that can help.

    Like everything else on the boards it's best to assume that if you don't say how you want feedback then people should be free to respond about anything in your work.

    If you'd like to be more specific (I just want to post this, I'm not looking for feedback; I just want help with the 3rd paragraph) then just let people know when you post.

    A few specifics -

    The normal rules of the boards apply - racist, sexist, etc, material wouldn't be acceptable. That doesn't mean that these ideas can't be explored but this isn't a way around normal rules.

    Don't insult people - this is a chance for people to feedback to other users, to entertain each other and to hopefully grow in confidence. Don't be a twat.

    Don't steal - A couple of things about copyright - The basic rules of the forum state we own everything published. That's required as a publisher. But we don't own your work and wouldn't pass it on as our own. That applies to everyone else as well - don't be stealing other's work and publishing it here and don't nick other people's work from here for other projects. Anyone doing that won't be here for very long.

    Report things you're not happy about - you can familiarise yourself with our report post functionality here

    So, have fun, help each other out and we'll all look forward to seeing what you come up with
    We're James, Aife & Mike: the staff team here at The Mix.
    If you have any questions about this place, feel free to
    ask over in the
    Help Desk or send us a private message.
