The "Wonderful Threads" forum was created so we could save important, pithy and popular survivor topics for people to read, be helped by, share in, feel less isolated etc.
I feel a bit concerned that pople who post in older and very big threads are making great contributions but missing out on being actively supported. For example, in the "Stupid Comments" thread, there are lots of very sad, shocking secondary wounds being shared, but replies to specific posters about their posts have gotten thinner as time has gone by, which of course usually happens in older threads - I just don't want anybody to feel unheard.
I suppose I wanted to just sound a reminder that people who are needing active support beyond just sharing should feel very okay about starting new threads on any of these topics in "my voice" or other relevant forum.
What do others think?

Maybe it would be better to keep them locked but still open to viewing as a resource. I also tend to avoid posting in the public arena because it feels uncomfortable to me.

When we switched to this board (or another earlier one, I can't really remember) a lot of the older threads got messed up. In order for them to be correct again, someone would have to go through and edit them and such. The original post is usually still there (I think), but it's no longer the first one, as you might have noticed. It's usually still on the first page, but down a bit.
So, no, it's not anything you are doing wrong. Blame it on the gremlins. :P/>

I went back looking at some old threads just a few days ago and never found the original thread that started it...weird...

I am new here and I agree it's a little confusing to follow some of the threads of the topics, but I am learning, and I hope it will get easier.
I am just grateful this place exists.
I have found myself the past few days wanting to come to this site first even before I read my email which is a huge change for me.
I suppose that means I just need to feel supported at the moment, since there is a lot of stuff going on in my real world including the wait for my abuser to be sentenced.
Thanks for being there.

Sharing has helped a lot. I saw as I read through the post that not many people were getting direct responses, I assumed the threads had become sounding grounds. And hope that my words might help someone else to feel less alone in the future. That said I do find making new threads really difficult, rather scary, and so generally avoid it.
