  1. Hi, I am a really newbie here, I just want to know how I can actually change my name here, cos I use not so safe name right now :) thanks

  2. This is a reminder that if you are having concerns about another member on the site you should try to privately discuss this with them first to resolve the issue. If that is not possible contact a moderator through the help desk or report the message using the report button. Do not discuss the other member on the boards or in chat.
  3. When I first joined AS I couldn't remember most of what happened, just that what I could haunted me for decades. The memories flooded back shortly after I think because i had found a place that was supportive and understanding. Many members here understand what you are going through because we have been there. Just know that it will get better after some hard work but it does get better. You are not alone here.
  4. Kris, It is never too late to begin the journey. It took 42 years for me before I began to look for help and after I joined AS the walls blocking what happened began to come down. It has been a really hard road the past few years but I am coming out the other side. It hasn't been easy but I am stronger and I can get through it better now and face the memories as they emerge. It is always okay to ask for help and support here and you will find many others here that understand what you are going through because they have been through it too. Welcome to After Silence Astro
  5. After the recent forum updates there has been a lot of confusion for members regarding the dates of birth that are showing on their profiles. There are two separate dates of birth on members profiles: The "Birthday" is what a member chooses to show on their profile to other members and you can choose to show your full birthday, the month and day or not at all. The "Birth Date" is the date of birth that you register with and is only visible to yourself and to the moderators and administrators of After Silence, not to the other members of the site.

  6. Hi teleah, The site was down for almost 12 hours today and just came back up a short time ago, most likely just a few minutes before you posted. Have you tried logging in on your phone since you posted? I am still waiting to find out what exactly happened. Astro
  7. Hi Firebrand, Welcome to After Silence! I am glad you found us. This is a safe place with many people her who understand. You are not alone here. Astro
  8. Hi Kay, Welcome to After Silence! Some forums are password protected, such as the Female Survivor forum. You can post on the helpdesk, contact a moderator, section moderator or a Newbie Support Team member for that. The "Share Your Story" forum will open once you have made 10 posts. Many new members post in the Humor and Silliness forums to learn how to navigate around the boards and to get comfortable online. It is easy to get 10 posts. If you look under your avatar you will the number of posts you currently have. I hope this helps Astro
  9. Hi Tangle, A couple of years ago there was a catastrophic failure on the forum server and After Silence was reestablished on another platform. Because of this the "User Control Panel" is now called "My Settings". To find this you use the drop down menu located next to your username at the top right hand side of the page. Once you choose the settings, the "Email & Password" reset option is the 2nd tab down on the right hand side of the screen. Let us know if you still have trouble finding this. Astro
  10. Hi SrongStar, Please read some of the posts above for your answer. Changing icons has the same problems as uploading one to begin with. Astro
  11. You are not a crybaby. It doesn't matter if what happened isn't as "bad" as what happened to others here, if it caused you pain, physical or emotional, it matters. It hurts and you have every right to your feelings and thoughts. Try not to minimize your experience, your reactions are valid and people here will support you. I am sure that you will also be able to support others. Everyone's story is different and everyone here has a voice and insights that help others and themselves. I hope that you come to see that as you keep posting here. Everyone matters and everyone's story matters.
  12. Hi jus, As Minerva has already said, sexual assault does not have to include penetration and can still be very traumatic. You are not alone in this and it does not matter how "bad" the assault was, it is all bad and you deserve to be heard and supported. I do not know your story but I hope that you can find a forum that fits. Please let us know if there are any other parts of your story that may warrant a new "type", either here or you can PM me. Astro
  13. Welcome to After Silence! There is a lot of support here and you just need to remember that you can take your time. There is no hurry and there is no pressure. Look around and read and post only when you are ready.
  14. Hi Stayingalive, Welcome to After Silence, I hope that you find the help you need here. Astro
