Hey everyone!

Just to toss out a couple of friendly reminders about our guidelines.

Please remember that when you registered here at Scarleteen, you agreed to abide by the rules listed in our User Agreement. Take a moment and review the guidelines listed therein and note the following:
  • "We respond to posts as quickly as possible, but do not guarantee any post will be responded to within a set period of time, or at all."
  • "We may state that we will no longer answer a given user's questions on a given topic if:...a user continually "bumps" their posts or reposts the same post instead of patiently waiting for an answer to their question."

While we understand that it may be frustrating to wait for a reply, please understand that this is a free service and is provided by individuals who volunteer their time (in other words, they have outside jobs, lives, and sometimes issues of their own that must be dealt with as well). Also, sometimes there may not be anyone around at a given time who has the answer to your specific question and we need to wait for the person with the best answer for you to be available. Especially during times where we may be short-handed, you may have to wait a few days for the right person to be able to answer your question.

So in short, please do not bump your topic (unless it has been there for 4-5 days without answer) or re-post it (even in part) elsewhere. It is against the guidelines and it is not really at all helpful in terms of getting your post answered.

If you feel that you are in crisis and need help or an answer absolutely immediately, if it is a health issue you should go offline and call your doctor or pharmacist immediately. In the case of extreme emergency, head to the nearest emergency room (ER). If you are in crisis about another issue, please check out our resources sections for information about hotlines and other resources that might be able to get you immediate, real-time assistance.

Thanks!

Does this mean it's not ok to post here for an expert answer and also post the same question in another forum for the community to discuss?

Ideally, what you can do if you want to do that is just ask us to move to post to one of the areas where anyone can answer. We're always happy to do that. [Smile]
