    Support after Westminster Attack

    Heya all,

    Following the attack in Westminster on Wednesday, we want to offer some support resources. No matter where you were during the attack, it may have brought up feelings of fear, vulnerability, anxiety, worry, etc. If you are feeling uneasy, one (or many) of the links below could help!

    Okay guys, I think we're all in total agreement that spam is a real nuisance! Spam is the enemy, not each other

    Everyone's being excellent at reporting spam, and we do respond to reports as quickly as possible.




    Just some clarification on this Robert - we do actually use a CAPTCHA in the registration process. To be specific, we were using Google's reCAPTCHA...

    Chats tonight (Tuesday 21/03/2017)

    Hey everyone,

    Men-only and women-only chat are both on tonight from 8 - 9:30pm. Anyone is welcome to attend the one that they most identify with most at the time of the chat, whichever that is. For any of you wonderful non-binary folks out there, the same applies - you're welcome in whichever space you're most comfortable.

    Eddy will be modding for men-only, and for women-only...

  • Hey Lostsense,

    Mica mentioned this a little bit in her comment, but we added in some paragraph breaks just to make your post a bit easier to read, hope that's okay. We're more than happy to remove these breaks so your post is back to how it was?

    All the best,

    Looks like the setting was disabled on your account. I've enabled it for you now, and for future reference or anyone else having trouble finding it, there's a little tick box under profile > user settings > account:

    Ah yes, we had quite the outbreak this morning!

    Capchas are something we're looking into, and we're also tracking the spam and where it's coming form more generally. Most changes we make to the boards take time and also some staff discussion, which is partly why nothing drastic has happened yet. For now we are going to continue deleting it as we see it.

    24 hour cover isn't...

  • Hiya Lostsense,

    Thanks for sharing your story. As emotional as this post was to read, it is really empowering to hear about your success in reporting and getting legal justice. Its a hard path you chose to walk by bringing it all the way to court, and you did so very bravely. Your strength and perseverance are so admirable!

    Hmm. They should appear on every post you make. If they're not showing it might be a problem at your end - maybe something to do with how well things are loading on your device/browser?

    Hey Robert,

    Yep, there has been a ton of it recently! We can't be around all the time, so sometimes things do take a while to get deleted but as evie_rose said, we're doing our best to keep on top of it. You guys reporting it is still a massive help to us.

    We're working on some ways to reduce the amount of spam coming through soon, so hopefully this won't be the case...
