Default rants and raves

so its obvious that this is not a democratic site but a dictatorship, instead of asking what is best for us ( the members that make the site ) were being told this change is for your own good. foooey. just my opinion, prolly get disciplined for this, oh well.

I agree
Rants and Raves sounds much better than Banter...

i'm not upset. i think rants n raves was a confusing concept, though, because i thought a rant is where u vent, yet the whole section was in the "lighter side". so i don't know if rants really belong with raves in the first place.

I tend to agree with you Blue, Venting really does need it's own forum!
Rants and raves can be about anything, and some ppl would like to vent some depressing things on there.
Where as Banter is self explanitory, I'll have to google it to know for sure but it sounds like more of an up thing!

I agree with Surf. We use these forums on a daily basis and we know the rules that belong to each one. Now it's all been separated and moved around. Not liking it one bit.

Maybe if both venting & banter were in the same section, it would be easier.

And what if we want to vent about something not at all related to depression? Venting about something silly? Does that go here, or in banter?

*sigh*

I'm really gonna miss calling it R&R. Banter is not at all a fun name.

Yeah but, others join everyday, at least we now know where to post, I think it will lessen the confusion around rants and raves.
I had A Thread I posted on rant-n-raves that got moved because my venting was too depressing.11

Frankly, I think the changes make more sense than the way things were. "Rants & Raves" seemed to be a misnomer, and I can see why "Banter" and "Venting" were created.

Though, I do agree with folks who say that not all venting is depression-related. Would this sub-section be better suited for another part of the board?

it's hard when things change, always, but I agree. then new members will know where to post. us veterans already know...
as for Mousey - happy vents... um.. I guess those would go in banter bc they are lighthearted.
everything light-hearted goes there. everything annoyed or angry goes in vents. it's not just depression stuff.
