TRIGGER WARNINGS AND WHEN/HOW TO USE THEM

Everyone has their own pasts and traumatic experiences or things that ''trigger'' them or cause them to stumble in their recovery and daily lives, and we as a group strive to do our best to avoid that happening. A ''trigger warning'' is simply something in the title and/or beginning of your thread that warns those reading about content in your post that may be triggering or upsetting to them. The following is a list we will continuously adapt around those in our group who are bothered by certain subjects or issues. Please let us know (privately) if we need to add any for you, and respect that we ask for these to be used.

At the end of the day, your own common sense and discretion is what you need to rely on when deciding what warnings to include in your posts. Think about what warnings might be listed on the 'viewer discretion' if this were a movie/show/game. If a Mod feels like there is something that needs to be mentioned, they will message you privately so you may edit your post.

  • Suicide (mention, allusion, act of)
  • Transphobia, Homophobia
  • Racism
  • Abuse (verbal, physical, mental, sexual, or directed at children)
  • Self-Harming behaviour (mention, allusion, acts of)
