Smile New forums added. Input?

Dear members,

As you may have noticed, we have moved the forums around a bit. We have added a link to the Official Guidelines at the top, so that it will be easily accessible for our members. Please try to check them regularly, as they are updated from time to time.

We have also moved the Introductions forum to the top, so that all new members will be welcomed by our community.

In addition, we have moved the Suggestions forum to Questions, Comments, Concerns? We would love to hear from you if you have suggestions about how to improve TTL.

In the Challenges section we have split up some of the forums, as sleepy suggested here, so that members can receive even more support. We have also added some new forums (marked in red), and renamed others (marked in green). We split up the Depression Forum into Depression and Suicide, and we split the Life's Challenges forums into several parts as seen here:

Depression
Discuss depression with people who care.
Depression, Troubled Loved Ones

Suicide
Post about suicide here.
Suicide, Lost to Suicide, Suicide Prevention

Mental and Physical Health
A place to talk about other mental and physical illnesses.
Abuse, Anxiety, Bipolar, Eating Disorders, OCD, Physical Health, Self-Harm, Sexual Abuse, Substance Abuse

Personal Issues
Discuss challenges related to gender, sexuality and relationships here.
Family Issues, Female Issues, Friendships, LGBT, Love and Relationships, Male Issues, Self-Esteem

Life's Other Challenges
Discuss other challenges you face here.
Employment, Faith, Grieving, Other Challenges, School

Feeding the Fire
Sometimes the only way past it is through it...
Creative Depression Writing, Depressing Music and Movies, Depression Poetry, Venting

Treatment
Discuss depression treatment here.
Alternative Treatment, Depression News, Exercising, Prescription Medication, Therapy

As we have just renamed some forums and added others, we will have to move some threads to more appropriate locations. This might take a while, so the forums may now contain threads that does not fit the description. Please help us keep the forums organized by reading the forum description prior to posting. To make it easier to know what the forum description is, we have added it to the bar right below the "new thread" button. For instance, in the Depression forum the title bar reads:
Quote:
Threads in Forum : Depression - Discuss your experience with depression here.
Thank you for all the suggestions you have made so far. It makes it much easier for us to improve TTL. If you have any comments or suggestions about this, please let us know. We are also planning to go through the Lighter Side section and make some changes there. Any input or wishes are welcome.

Best wishes,
Ella

Looks and feels good Ella.

I think its better because its not as categorised as it was. By that I mean tons of sub -threads in one main thread. I give you a big thumbs up! =).

Mitch.

Even cranky old Mozart ( and I have seen many websites since 1756 ) likes the changes. Thanks for all your great work. I am happy to be one of the DJ's on board.

I think the new lay-out is good, being bipolar I think it's very good to have that forum when you don't know really where else to turn!
