    FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

    -Can I donate?
    Yes, thank you, your contribution helps a lot.
    To donate via Paypal please PM @Serge.

    -Is this site pro-suicide? What do you support?

    We are pro-choice.
    This means that if you wish to live, then we support your right to do so, and if you wish to die, then we likewise understand and support you. We do not encourage death, we simply accept that different people have different circumstances and thus they may decide an earlier death is a better outcome than lengthening a perhaps painful existence. We like to be open-minded.

    -How can I send PM's to other users?
    The permission to send and recieve PM's will be granted automatically after you write a certain number of posts and are active for a certain amount of time. This is to avoid spam, low effort/lazy PM's, trolling, and not waste anyone's time. Once the permission is granted, you can send by going to the information tab of the user's profile.

    -Is there an official Discord?
    Yes! Please check the sticky thread in the main forum.

    -Will the site ever close? Should I worry?
    No. Our servers are offshore, and we have taken precautions to avoid any issue that can arise. Please don't create panic by making threads about this.
    Downtime may happen rarely due to maintenance, upgrades, feature changes or similar.

    -Can I edit / delete my posts and threads?
    Yes. You have 6 hours after posting to edit / delete the content.
    If you really need something deleted after that period, you can ask a Mod to remove it via PM.

    -How do I get alerts from a certain thread?

    At the top right of every thread there's a button that says "Watch thread".
    If you want to Watch a particular thread without having to post, simply click the button.
    By changing your alert preferences, you can automatically Watch threads after you post in them, or after you create one.

    -Can I discuss methods / make farewell and memorial posts?
    Yes. We do not censor our users. If you have more questions about this PM a mod.

    -How do I change my alert preferences / the tag under my username?
    From your preferences panel.

    -Is there a "Dark" mode?
    There is! Check the bottom left of the page: There's a button that gives you the option of switching between "Light" and "Dark".

    -Can I change my username?
    Unfortunately no, but you are free to create a new account.

    -Who are the mods?
    You can see the list in the Members section.

    -Can I follow / block a user?
    Yes. Click on the user's name and you should see "Follow" and "Ignore" buttons there.

    -Can I trust other users?
    Most users are sincere and empathetic, but we can never 100% guarantee that people won't lie. Don't trust strangers without understanding the risks first.

    -How can I stay safe online?

    If you are worried about your privacy, take precautions like you would anywhere else: Don't post personal information (real name, address, phone, email, pictures, etc), unless you are comfortable exposing it to the internet.
    You can use a proxy / VPN if you want to go a step further, but know we take heavy privacy precautions on the site already.

    -Can I close down my account?
    You can PM a mod to get your account banned. We do not delete accounts, nor mass-delete content.

    -Can mods or admins read my PMs?
    No. Staff cannot read your PM's. The only way that staff can see your messages is if you send a screenshot of your PM to a staff member. If a PM is reported, only the reported message can be seen by staff.

    -I regret requesting a ban, can you unban me?
    Please post your request in the ban appeal section, mention the mod, and explain why you have changed your mind, we'll consider your case. Notice you will be granted one unban at maximum.

    -I have been banned, what can I do?
    If you are banned, you will be given only one appeal.You must post this appeal in the ban appeal forum. Please read the instructions before posting your appeal.

    -Why was X banned?
    We do not discuss reasons for bans or warnings with other users, as they are personal and private.

    -Why are there different colors for usernames? What do they mean?
    Depending on the amount of posts you will be assigned a rank on the forum. Each rank has it's own color. A list of all ranks & how many posts are needed can be found here:
    0-9 -> New Member
    10-99 -> Member
