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.

You can read all about the results here

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"

  • Easter Quiz! (Tuesday 17/04/2018)

    Hey everyone,

    Hopefully you've seen our thread about chat break week. If not, go read that, then read this.

    On Tuesday the 17th of April at 7pm, it'll be time for the...

    EASTER QUIZ!

    Those of you who have been here for a few months will have a rough idea of how these quizes usually work. For our newer community members, here's a breakdown.

    They run from 7-8pm during chat break weeks. We typically have three rounds of ten questions, each lasting about 20 minutes. The winner of each question is the first one to call out the correct answer. The rounds for this quiz will be:
    1. Entertainment
    2. The Mix trivia
    3. Open slot (pick your subject!)
    We invite you folks to write these rounds for us, and even host them if you'd like to. Hosting just means being the person to ask the questions for your round and picking a winner for each one. If you're not keen on this idea, the moderator can do it.

    There will be prizes for the winner of each round, as well as the overall winner of the quiz. We'll also give our round writers a little something for being awesome.

    Prizes
    The prizes up for grabs are...

    1) Hired, Fired, Fled: One Man's Global Quest To Beat The Rat Race (Amazon link)



    2) Case Logic SnapView ipadAir case in green (Amazon link)




    3) The Best of TV & Movies Board Game (Amazon link)



    If you're interested in writing a round for us, you automatically get a set of The Mix merchandise, which comes with a Sanctuary Spa gift set. The overall winner will also get one of these, on top of their other prize(s).



    If you'd like to get get involved and write a round, drop us a PM or post below.

          I could probably write one but I won't be able to do anything till tomorrow afternoon.
          I am human, I fight through the pain to allow the ones I love to continue to live a fulfilling life.

                Hey Jellyelephant

                Aw we've still got the entertainment round left if you'd like to write that one? Maybe you can throw in a few extra open themed questions to that round too?
