Vanilla Survey Results

It's been a few months since we announced our exciting move to the new boards software Vanilla.

Back in February, we asked you to complete a survey so we could hear what you thought about some potential features and changes that Vanilla can offer. We also sent this survey out to our boards volunteers.

Post of The Month

Shaunie is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey Novocaine

This sounds really difficuly and scary. Sorry youre going through such a hard time im glad youre getting some sort of help. Experimental therapies sounds good. I hope youre taking good care of yourself aswell and doing things you enjoy and doing small things that could make you feel better like nice relaxing bath.

Mindfullness and grounding technics can be really helpful. In times where i felt disassociated i would be vaguely suggested to stay midful and present in the here and now. Which can help your concentration aswell. Like even picking up something around you & noticing how that feels & what is around you helps to be less in a dream state of mind. Loking at everything in details & concetrating on your breathing. I know its quite hard to rememeber to do in times of high anxiety but it doesnt need to just be when you get to that point. Can be any time of the day just to help you feel better and get in rountine of doing it & remembering

Its also okay to not know what you want to do after school. Even people who seem to know what they want - end up not wanting it and alll can take some time to know and feel better and that is okay too, youre on your own lil journey. But there is always hope

Take care"

  • Vanilla Survey Results

    Hey everyone!

    It's been a few months since we announced our exciting move to the new boards software Vanilla. If you haven't already seen this thread about our news, make sure to have a read!

    One of the exciting things about Vanilla is that there's some cool new features like post reactions, spam zapping, peer moderation and badges. Back in February, we asked you to complete a survey so we could hear what you thought about 4 potential features and also 3 possible changes that Vanilla can offer.

    We also sent this survey out to our boards volunteers. We asked them about 1 more potential feature as we're interested in mods being able to record private notes that can be attached to profiles. This feature is called the mods warning tool which allows mods to communicate with each other and keep up to date on any information they might need to be aware of. We wanted to share these results with you too and you can read all about that in the report.

    At the end of this thread you'll see a report that summarises all of the responses we got from both members and boards volunteers. We decided to merge both responses from members and volunteers because there was a very high level of agreement between the two groups. We've made sure to mention any significant differences between the two groups and there's also a summary of how your responses will influence any decisions made about the boards.

    We hope you enjoy reading through this report, if you have any questions about anything, let us know in our Vanilla FAQ thread or send us a PM.

      I'm surprised no-one has commented on it yet. I think it's so, so exciting - can't wait to migrate!!! (and the survey results are brilliant!).
