  1. I love that feeling when I find a song with lyrics that are so spot on it's scary. Guess I found a new cover photo. 
    Lyrics by Em Beihold. Photo by me.

      I think a lot of us can relate to those lyrics. And your photo is beautiful. :hug:

  2. Hello, I started on this website as Shortcake. A new, terrified member who struggled badly as so many of you do. This community of survivors helped me immensely in my journey to healing from what I'd been through. I hope those of you who are brand new find the same here as well. I stepped down as a site moderator near the end of 2016, and also away from the site for a majority of the last year and a half because I had begun struggling with issues not even related to what brought me here. However, I have been working through it all with the support of my husband and mother (
  3. You know, I JUST read what your profile pic says? LOL I am down with mermaiding. Adulting sucks.

      No, I couldn't see yours. Thank you.

      Glad to see your question was answered :) Thank you silentbird

  5. Hi I was on chat yesterday and you had given me some really good advise. I am reaching out to you I we could message each other. I am looking for extra support and not finding it in chat. That you

      Absolutely! Feel free :)

  6. Hi there!! I've been wondering how you put the pic in the background on your profile. Can't seem to figure it out. I really like your pic you chose :) 

    1. VintageCrayon


      Well when you look at your profile, you will see 2 options on the upper right corner of the cover photo area (background pic). One says "Edit profile" and one says "Cover photo". Click on Cover photo and click on "upload photo". From there you can choose any photo that you have and upload it as your background/cover photo. I found mine on google when I searched "Inspirational quotes".

      Ah I understand why it doesn't work for me. Mine does not have the "Cover photo" option.

      Thank you for getting this fixed!! I now have the option to choose a cover photo. :clap:

  7. Welcome to AfterSilence! I hope you find all the support you can get here We're full of awesome people.
  8. Thanks for the suggestion! Will discuss with other mods
  9. Thank you for taking the time to open this thread. It is VERY important that you read this. There are 2 pinned/locked topics in this forum (Welcome forum) that ask members to read before posting. I do understand that when you're new to After Silence, you're anxious to post and get involved in the healing process, and therefore may decide to just read those important sounding threads 'later'. Here's the problem....'later' never seems to happen. The reason those threads are there in every forum, is to enlighten you as to the specific rules and guidelines for each forum. Because there ARE certa
  10. This tutorial is for any member who wishes to: A. Block a member from chatting with them B. Block a member from messaging them C. Block a member's posts to prevent seeing them D. Block a member's signature. Please note: A. Please try to only use this option if your issue is not resolved by chat or board mods, or while you are waiting for a chat/board mod to resolve your issue if the problem is ongoing. B. Please only use this option as a last resort if a member continues to harass you after a mod has attempted to handle the problem. C. Use this option with care, and try to only use it wh
  11. This tutorial is for any member who, for whatever reason, wishes to remove someone as a friend. Step one: Click your username at the top of the page. Step two: Click on "Manage Friends".

  12. This is a tutorial for anyone who wishes to be able to manually accept or reject friend requests, instead of having people being automatically able to add you Step one: Click on your username at the top of the page. Step two: Click on "My settings". Hovering over each option here will give you a brief description of what you can do. Step three: You will be taken to this page. Where it says "Friends" there are two options. The first says "Show my friends in my profile". If you leave this checked, people you have as friends will be visible on your AS profile. If you uncheck it, it will no
  13. Very well said Courtney! I couldn't agree more.
  14. We are glad you like that safety feature! We agree that it also encourages members to get involved and communicate, and are pleased that it makes you feel more comfortable to share in the future Thanks for the love!
  15. To add to what NorskyCourtney said about Trigger warnings for details about assault/stalking/ anything of a sexual or violent nature, I also try to post Trigger warnings for anything that may contain curse words (venting, quoting something that was said to us in real life, etc). When posting about Self Injury/Harm (and always be sure to post in the correct subforum) I'd recommend always posting a trigger warning. Same for Eating disorder related posts. Other things that may require trigger warnings: Talking about flashbacks, nightmares, details about legal processes, etc. Venting that include
