Scarleteen's purpose and mission is to provide information on all things related to sexuality, including general health, body image, mental health and well-being, gender issues, and orientation. We're here to educate, and encourage everybody to participate with this in mind.

Scarleteen receives no public funding of any kind, running entirely on private donations, and the bandwidth costs get heavy given the sheer number of users seeking reliable sexual health information.

For that reason, we must emphasize at this point that in order for all of our visitors to continue to receive that information, posts that aren't conductive to the site's mission be taken elsewhere. An occasional friendly or joking post in a main thread is fine when appropriate. But it's important that they don't detract from the topic at hand, nor become a habit.

This forum is the place for light socializing "fun" threads, and all is usually good. But to users racking up a bajillion posts here alone, who aren't very invested in the purpose of the site, we ask you to please visit one of the many chatboards available via a quick Google.

Thank you!

I believe a reminder is necessary; Scarleteen is in a financial state where we simply cannot support unnecessary bandwidth usage, which means any thread not conductive to the site's mission. This area is currently being cleaned up/archived to reflect such.

We ask that all users (especially those who participate in sites for social purposes/general discussion already, or can easily find them through a quick web search) please bear this in mind. Any thread or post hereafter deemed far outside the scope of what we do here will be subject to deletion.

Thank you for understanding. [Smile]
