New Forum Idea--Counselor's Corner

Postby FSF Lensman » Sun May 13, 2012 10:40 am

I think we could add more to our sense of community by creating a new forum in the 10F section called "Counselor's Corner". This would be a place where members could post RL milestones that have happened to them lately...births, marriages, illnesses, deaths...and get the community's support for their lives outside FSF.
Thoughts?

I like the idea, also get a chance to air any of the problems they have and see if others in the community might have a solution. It might not replace a shrink but sometimes, if you don't have the money fo one, it could help on a temporary basis. I know I'm still hurting from losing Linds.

I think this is a good idea, but my only concern is quite simple. When it comes to giving advice about say an illness or a death or another tough RL situation, we must remember that our advice can only extend so far, and the people seeking it must realize that as well. I'm not sure if anyone here is a psychologist or a medical doctor in RL, but we just have to be careful because if someone needs professional advice, it is not our place to give it

Personally, I don't think we really need more forums. We have some now that hardly get used, like the Klingon section.

Hence why we need new ones people will use. We've tried getting some of the older ones active and some of them have gotten more active but others just won't, and need to be replaced with forums about topics that people will discuss

Hey, if you want to try and revive some of the old ones, go right ahead. We have done that with some success as of late, and I think the new posting requirements have helped

If any ideas come to mind. Actually, have one for the Star Trek section, after starting a rewatch with DS9.
