PostPosted: Fri Mar 02, 2007 10:30 pm    Post subject: How to Add a Poll Reply with quote

To add a poll, when creating a new topic, you should see it down at the bottom below the checkboxes like "Attach Signature". If you do not see it, let me know and I'll try to fix that.

Once you see it, you add a question e.g.:

"Do you like this idea?"

Then, add a poll option

"yes"

Then, click "Add Option" button to the right of the Poll option you just typed...when the page reloads, add the second option "No".

then, click submit, and you're done.

Again, if you don't see the Add Poll section below your post, let me know and I'll try to fix it.

Kevin

topic suggestions:

Perpetrator stuff (meaning perpetrators can post here to find help dealing with their specific issues)

revictimization

religious things

Also, in order for this topic thing to work, I'd say let's move around some topics to this tough topic place. That way it's got a good start and we get used to posting here,

What do you mean by perpetrator stuff? Do you mean like people who are survivors but they think they might start abusing or something like that? I suppose that would be ok but I dont think I would want a place for perpetrators to have here. I mean I know I am here but I dont post any of that sort of stuff and I dont think its right that anyone should do that stuff here even if they got their own area.

Im not sure what revictimization is?

Tim, revictimization is when a survivor goes through another abuse, either by the same abuser or by a different one. Esmerelda Confused

What I mean by perpetrator stuff Tim, is when someone wants to heal from having done those terrible things and needs to talk about it, there should be a place for that.

Right now, we're treating the perpetrators as if they are monsters. Well, someone who is not sorry about what he or she did, I suppose wouldn't be looking for a place to heal. I don't believe any of us are monsters and I think it must be awefully hard to know what you've done and not be able to talk about it.

I'd say it would help a lot to keep that stuff seperate, but I would like to see us help out ex-perpetrators.

well I knew what you meant but I really didnt want to say that i was tryingto change the subject. I still dont think its a good idea.They do have some programs here in some prisons where the abusers meet their victims and have to talk to them and I think they said that is good to help them understand what they have done. But i dont think it can be like that on here and maybe perp isues are more different from survivor issues. I dont know I dont really feel i got any right to say about it but I dont like the idea.

lol, you have as much right to say as any of is. We're each individuals and well, if you don't like the idea, you don't like it.

That doesn't necessarily change my point of view and I don't even know what Kevin's stance on this might be. He is after all the moderator here.

well It depends what perpetrator issues are i suppose and if survviors are able to help with them. i know its sort of the opposite sides of the same thing but that doesnt mean that survivors and perps can help each other. I sort of feel that if I mention my survvior issues I feel everyone thinks Im making excuses for my other stuff and I dont want to mention the other stuff here.

I found out before that people here mostly wanted to know why i did it well thats not a question I can to answer for myself even if it might be helpful to surviviors and why I did it doesnt mean that thats why anyone else did it. Also its like being sorry isnt a thing that you can ever prove to anyone its an inside yourself thing and when people keep on asking for proof that I am sorry and it isnt something I can make anyone believe in.

Having a topic for the issues of the perpetrators is not going to happen within this forum. It is something that annie would like to do, but if it ever happens it will probably be a completely different site...

As for topic suggestions...please make a "New Topic" for EVERY topic suggestion and add a poll. I don't have time to follow conversations. When I see a topic that looks interesting, I will look at the number of votes it has...Most of whether or not a topic exists will be based just on my opinion of the topic...but voting will help sway me if I don't particularly like a topic.
