New forum layout, what do you think?
Dear Members,

We have moved the forums around a bit so that it will (hopefully) be a bit easier to find threads here and participate on the forum. Please let me know what you think about the new forums and the organization. I will explain the changes we've made here.

We have added a new Treatment and Resources category. This is to emphasize that there is treatment to be found for depression, and to explain what depression is and where to get help. We will post information about depression, treatment options and such in the new About Depression forum. This will not be a open forum for members to post in, but if you have any suggestions about information you think we should include in this forum, please do let us know by replying here or posting in Contact Moderators. :smile: We have moved the Treatment forums to this category.

In the Lighter Side category we have split up some of the forums, so that members can more easily see new chat threads and interact with each other. We split up the Diversions forum into Hobbies and Games and Creativity.

We have also added a Questions and Comments category, with a FAQ forum where we will post common questions we receive from members, and a Community Box where members can post general messages or ask questions to the whole TTL community.

This is the layout of the forum after our recent changes. We have added some new forums (marked in red), moved some forums (marked in blue) and renamed others (marked in green):

Does this change it so member journals can be seen by guests?

I would like to know that answer, but I like what I see so far. :smile:

XXC, the member journals are still invisible to guests, yes. They can see that the forum exists, but not read any of the posts in there. I hope this puts your mind at ease.

I'm glad to hear that you like what you see 20something. :smile:
