  1. First of all, my apologies for the inconvenience these delays may have caused.

    Karen is right - there are dozens of registrations that need approval daily and that takes time. At times, I am unable to validate every single one of them right away as I have things in life to take care of, which is why we suggest waiting a minimum of 24 hours for approval. And at times, someone isn't approved because they did not receive their validation email. In that case, I wait a while in case the server is having a glitch or a delay, and resend validation emails. Most of the time, they are sent to a spam folder. After five days, the unconfirmed accounts are automatically deleted by the database, in which case the member would need to re-register and re-confirm their email address.

    So if you've registered and have had to wait days for approval, it is most likely because a validating email never reached your inbox. In that case, an email can be sent to us and we will take care of that for you.

    Hope this has answered your questions. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions and/or concerns.


  2. The reasons why guidelines in the "Share your Story" forum were originally changed were due to new replies to older threads were pushing new stories to the bottom, hence gone unnoticed and frustrating for those who just shared their stories in that forum.

    If a member were to update their thread in that forum, while it will remain in another page, it still shows up when you click, "View New Posts", therefore it does not get missed.

    At the present time, a second chat room is not possible but we will keep that in mind should our circumstances change. Should the staff decide to revert those changes made in the Share your Story forum, we will announce it.



  3. Booooooooooooooost! :wink:

    Please use the feedback form for CBS located here.

    Under "Regarding", scroll down until it reads, "Other, Not Listed".

    Type in your information and add a message.

    Hopefully we can all generate enough requests to allow CBS Cares to air an awareness commercial.

    It is a great idea. Thanks, Wren!

  4. Dear After Silence family,

    The private messaging feature on this board enables members to keep contact without sharing personal information such as e-mail addresses and IP numbers. That being said, please do not use the private messaging system to share personal information of any kind: Name, Address, Phone Numbers or any identifying information. Do not pressure anyone into providing you with their personal information. This is for YOUR safety. After Silence will not be held liable should you choose to share this information.

    You may share IM/E-mail information as long as:

    • It isn't posted anywhere on the forum other than on your profile.
    • It may be shared via PM as long as you're not being pressured to do so.
    • It does not contain personal information such as full names and/or school/work information.

    Do not use the PM system to threaten, harass or spam other members.

    Engaging in actions mentioned above will result in termination of membership here at After Silence.

    Should you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact a member of the moderating team.

    Thank you,
