I have been reading your site for a while (I read every post) and was wondering what I would have to do to become an advocate? I really enjoy helping people, and I believe that this would be a great way to do this. I just completed a two year stay at a residental treatment center, and I am now ready to be home with my family. I thinks that this gives me an expirence that can be hard to come by sometimes.

Check out http://www.scarleteen.com/forum/Forum19/HTML/000007.html for an explanation of how people get to be advocates.

But remember, you don't have to be an advocate in order to help answer questions .

Apart from "Ask Scarleteen" and "Emergencies and Crises", board users can post answers to questions in any of the forums - we just ask that you follow the guidelines, and make sure that your information and advice is as accurate and responsible as possible (it helps to have read the articles on the site).

Well, Miz Scarlet - as you've probably picked up - runs the place, so she picks the advocates. Basically, if you want to be one, you've gotta post! You've gotta be here posting continuously for a few weeks or months, before you'll get consideration probably.

If she likes your advice, you might just get the call!

For the longest time I hoped and hoped that I'd get picked to be an advocate.

Then I realized, I don't have the time. Ever. Often, it's 2 or 3 days in between my visits because life happens. So I am content to be a long time poster and supporter of Scarleteen.

And just the same...I can help people here without the title.

Thanks for all the replies...I never knew that there was more than one message board. A friend of mine sent me to Ask Scarleteen when I was in need of an answer, and I found the answer in another thread. Hence, when I tried to reply a "thank you" note, I wondered why I wasn't being allowed to reply to posts. I searched for a place to ask where I could be "activated" to create replys, and was sent to the main page for the boards.

You should see the withdrawls I go through.

It was so difficult to be away for 2 weeks. Even though it WAS Australia...I managed to fix myself at Wake Up! in Sydney. Only, what will I do in Chicago? The horror...

I was refering to Scareleen Seperation Anxiety, and the fact that I doubt I'll get internet access.

Really. Can't hate a place until I've been there!

And you want to know what's really scary, BruinDan?

You have the same sense of humor and personality as my brother. Only, he lives in Kirkland and works for a computer company. You should hear his stories. You know. Makes the grocery store sound entertaining.

Argh, he's been cloned?!
Sounds sort of like a bad sci-fi movie where no one ever shuts up.

Well, I've never set foot in Kirkland but if I do, I'll meet up with your brother and we'll have a jolly old time.

I remember a few years ago someone else said something very similar...I think I reminded someone of their older brother or older cousin or something like that. I guess assholaciousness is a common trait these days.
