^ Your request has been noted. A more senior moderator than me will get back to you about it.

I'll be sorry to see you go though.

I think it's a real shame if LmaoZedong leaves SAUK because there's room for all sorts of personalities on this forum. The World would be a very boring place if we all thought the same about things.

Take care Zedong x

Please can my posts be deleted. Sorry, I feel really, really bad to ask that because I know there are a lot :/. I'm not sure if I can help with that at all? And also no judgement if it takes a while.

Once the posts have been deleted can I have a ban, please. I'm very certain about this. Some of the things I have seen on this forum are so upsetting to witness on a MH forum. I no longer feel the love I used to feel for this place. Thanks for the support I've had on here over the years, especially from the admin team who have always been so patient and kind with me over many things. The support and kindness I have received on here is very much appreciated more than I can put into words.

Biscuits sweetie – can you clear your PMs so I can send you something before you leave OR can you message me a way to contact you offsite? I really really need to tell you something! ❤

If I don't hear from you I'll hit up one of the mods.

I'm really sorry you're feeling this way biscuits. It goes without saying that you are such a valued and appreciated member on this forum! I for one would miss seeing you on here. But of course only you know what's best for you.

As others have said it's a real shame to hear this biscuits and you will be very much missed it you leave

One thing I would say is that it's a very unusual time right now and people react in all sorts of different ways, sometimes when people are feeling very low themselves they can be negative or less understanding towards others. This time will come to an end eventually though and things will go back to being more normal.

What?

SAUK without biscuits would be like... well, tea without biscuits - it's unthinkable!

If you're still logging on, biscuits, then you will see by now that you have a fan club here and I hope you'll reconsider; whatever has made you feel this way, there is a lot of love for you here and I'm sure I'm not the only one who would want to support you through whatever is troubling you.

If you do take a ban, then we all look forward to welcoming you back in the not-too-distant future and hope that you take care of yourself whilst you're away.

This place simply wouldn't/won't be the same without biscuits
And that is to the detriment of the entire forum
So if whatever has happened can be sorted out, then that can only be a good thing
And just as everyone above has said, we'd be very glad if you do reconsider

But you do what's best for you. And take good care.

Yeah, biscuits, whatever it is that made you feel that way, I wouldn't let it influence you in that kind of way because all you have done is show support here, and you are responsible for lightening the mood which is so important with users like me. I feel like there are a few users that are really supportive here, which surprised me as I was going through that depressive mood swing a few days ago, was the problem to do with that? I deleted my posts, I feel the timing is a concern for me because I feel utterly hated in general and I honestly don't know what the cause is but you shouldn't let it influence you. Whatever it is/was about me, I'm honestly sorry, my only intention was to simply help others and myself, and to express my point of view on things.

I've only just seen this here

The thought of not seeing any more posts by Biscuits is terrible.
On some of my most miserable days she has made me smile and she's always been so kind and supportive to myself and other members. I shall miss her terribly.

Things like this make me not want to come here

^ Honestly you were doing the right thing offering your time and support to other users on here, don't just copy the behaviour of others whatever you do because negative behaviours can spread - as can positive ones. Next time you see an elderly person behind you, hold open the door for them and others will copy the behaviour and the world becomes a (slightly) better place, one step at a time.

Hi Moderators - I started a Dating Thread in the Penpal section yesterday, and it appears to have vanished - is there any reason why?

I'm not a mod but, just to quote from the SA and Relationships forum rules:
Quote:
SAUK is a site for support, first and foremost, and that making posts asking for a relationship, or hinting at this can be counter-productive and can make people feel uncomfortable. While the discussion of dating, and the issues around this, is allowed, posts advertising for a romantic relationship or private messaging other members of the forums for this purpose are not allowed.

I see. I didn't know this rule was in place.

I am sorry and apologize if I made anyone feel uncomfortable.

^ It's not so much about making people feel uncomfortable, but it is, as I understand, similar to the reason that we don't have "likes" on posts here: it's not a popularity contest and if there were threads aimed at people linking up for dates, there would inevitably be some who feel more rejected than they do now and that could be damaging.

If you're looking for dating with others who are disadvantaged, you could try searching for "Outsiders" on Facebook (they used to have a website, but it's no longer available; it was set up for people who are disabled, but the terms of disability which they recognise include anxiety disorders, autism, personality disorders, bipolar, schizophrenia etc. - it isn't all people in wheelchairs).

People who feel more rejected? I've been single for 21 years mate. Last date I went on was in 2004. I thought I might be able to meet someone just like myself, in a similar situation. As I've heard there are others who have met their future partners on sauk. I did state I'd be looking for friendship first, which is why I posted in on the Penpal section.

Thanks for your suggestion. I don't use social media due to my low self esteem. So that wouldn't be forme.

I feel quite stupid that I wrote the post to begin with now. How embarrassing.
