Why do I have to meet certain requirements before I can access chat?

62 posts in this topic

I'm not sure how big of a transgender community we have, especially in chat, but you are still very much welcome in chat and to talk about it.

hi helpneverhurt

I sent you a PM. You do need to be a member for a week and have a minimum of 10 posts on the board before you can have access to chat

Hi Mary,

I've just PM'd you the details! smile.gif


To anyone else wishing to enter chat:

Please read the chat guidelines found here then respond individually to each of the six points listed. You can post in the Help Desk where we're more likely to see it faster or send your answers to any board mod - Brittany, Kate, Ruth, Tracy, Susan or our chatterator - Sasha. Thanks! smile.gif

Like many of the others, I would like to say the wait is hard, but I understand and even more, appreciate it. I know that when I am able to join, I will be in a safe community of people who have been through the similar trials and who offer real support and care.

JoyfulKatie, it looks like you are all set to join. You just have to PM Sasha (the chatterator) or any of the blue Board Mods with the answers to the following questions:

1) The date that you joined Pandy's.
2) The number of posts you have made.
3) That you have read and understood the chat room guidelines.
4) That you agree not to use the chat PM system unless its to talk directly to a chat moderator.
5) That you will remain respectful of all members and Pandy's staff members.
6. That you agree not to enter the chat room whilst you are "in crisis" which we define as being actively suicidal, actively self-harming or threatening to self-harm, in need of medical attention, or in need of police assistance.


Be sure you have read the Chat Guidelines which you can find here: http://pandys.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=140809

Hi Palash,

You're very welcome! We've worked hard to ensure our chat rooms are utilized for exactly those reasons. They are not for crisis issues - support and conversation and joking when appropriate. smile.png

I totally understand and support the decisions you've made. Moderators make a board, and I really appreciate the effort that so many have put into this.

Hi blackrose,

We have these requirements in place for the safety of all, not as punishment. It allows new members to look around the board, check out the various forums and get an idea of how we operate. I think you'll be surprised at how much support is available here once you post. This post explains all of this in more depth.

Take care,

Susan
