Seriously, Guys?
 
I've been checking the New Posts page recently, and it has come to my attention that there are certain threads that have been created to vent, and I would like to point out that this is not the point of this website.

KidPub was not made as an outlet for your personal problems. KidPub is a children's writing website. If you would like to vent your feelings through a piece writing, then go write ahead and do so. Write as much poetry or as many stories as you'd like. But if you want to sit at your computer screen and write angry messages about how much you hate somebody who the other members of this website don't even know, then this is not the place to do it.

I would also like people to know that when you write something in very small text and make it colored white, people can still read it. It is not invisible.

This is also not your private diary. This is the internet. Anything you post on this website, even if you delete it, it's still there. If you're posting messages about how much you hate someone, you never know - maybe they'll be surfing the net one day and just happen upon your message. Especially if it's your parents and they know that you have a KidPub account. What if the subject of your hating message reads it?

Hey, it's not private.

This is a children's website. There are nine-year-olds on here. Even if you white out what you're writing, everyone can still read it. Much of what people post on these threads is not appropriate for this website.

I'm not saying that venting is wrong. All I'm saying is that KidPub is not the place to do it. I know many of you are going through hard times, but if you are really, truly depressed and are having as many problems as you're letting on, please go talk to someone you know in real life! Don't rely on your internet friends for support. There are people who love you and will listen to you in your own life.

I don't want you guys to start venting at me for this. If you are totally against what I'm saying and want to argue, get some real reasons and I'll listen to you. I don't want to start a fight because of this.

Please take into consideration what I'm saying. There are members on here who have been hurt because of these "venting" threads. (I'm not just talking about the Emotional Venting Thread, though it's included in this. There are multiple threads like it.) I've posted angry messages on here myself, and now I regret them, and wish I hadn't. I feel like these threads are highly inappropriate for this website. Maybe I'm making a big deal out of nothing, but I would like for you all to take this into consideration.

As far as I know of, there are only two-- are there others? o_o

Three that I know of. The ever wanted to say something etc one is kind of.

L.S.Trendom 03-17-2013 04:54 PM

Someone else, older and probs more mature than most of us, shares the same opinion, it's not appropriate for KidPub.
And I agree, it really isn't the best topic for KidPub.
However, I think we do need an alternative for people to go to. Maybe, like, a private forum on a different site, or an email group, or something. Because, generally, we trust each other on KP and I don't know if that would transfer as well to other sites, and some of us really need support.
And I've also seen KP make a lot of difference for people. Helped them get through depression, help them work on stopping cutting, possibly even saved their lives.
So, yeah, basically I think we shouldn't stop people from venting, not until we find an alternative…

Maybe chatzy. Since it can be anonymous, too.

You literally took the words right out of my keyboard. I have trying to tell people this, they just don't get it. Thank you so much for putting this out there!

There's another one that's for more specific problems.

AlgebraAddict 03-17-2013 05:08 PM

....Oh. Right. I didn't think of that one.

Confuzzled 03-17-2013 05:10 PM

You need to post this on the NSP.. more reads.:D But their would probably be a fight anyway...

Those are the two that I was talking most about, but I left it a bit vague because I'm sure there are more specific ones that I just can't think of.

I agree that the KidPub community can help people, but it's just that people vent so excessively and sometimes they make it more serious than it is, and that is the reason that I believe this should stop.

I think a good thread to replace these, would be something like, "Hey guys, I have a big problem and I would like someone to talk to. Could I email someone?" and people would respond if they were open to listen to the other person's problems. Instead of people just telling the whole world their problems.

It's not really a big problem for the people whole just stick to the main site. I feel this is strictly more for the people who go on WB.

Lily09 03-17-2013 05:17 PM

The main two are the EVT and the Cutting thread. The EVT and the Cutting thread should be trigger warnings in itself, especially the Cutting thread. If you know you will be triggered by it, don't go onto it.
On the topic of talking to people IRL, I don't really have anyone. I don't trust anyone enough to talk to. I cant talk to my friends because they dont understand, and my parents? My brother wants nothing to do with me, my dad told my depressed aunt to go kill herself, and my mom would think im overreacting. LST, DragonRider, and Cheeze are my best friends. They are the only ones I fully trust and they are the only people I know that love me and are there for me. They've stopped me from cutting several times and they have saved my life. If I never knew them, I'm pretty sure I would either be dead or in a hospital of some sort.
For some of us, KP is really the only place to go.

Lily09 03-17-2013 05:18 PM

And emailing, yeah, that's a good alternative also...

We probably should do that more, I agree. I have the e-mails of ME, LST, Pokey, Sophie, and some others. Most of us have the e-mail of at least one other helpful person.

camikat 03-17-2013 05:25 PM

Yeah, emailing is a good idea. Skype could also work...the IMing part of it.

And the video chatting. Then you'd know they are real people. Also texting.

I agree. KidPub is a site for writing, not venting.But I also agree with LST. We should have another part to this website or something along those lines in which people can vent. A lot of people just hate their lives and they just rant about it on the internet. Maybe going to somebody you actually know would benefit those people...

I agree with both of you guys.

There are a lot of us who would go to somebody IRL except we don't trust anyone enough. :/

I agree with you, and see what you're saying. Obviously, people still need a way to vent, but I don't know how. I can see from you angle, but we need a better solution.

I understand what you mean by KP isn't meant for venting. My only objection is that sometimes, I vent on here because its the only place I can go. If I have to vent about my parents or my friends or stuff I can't talk to my parents about, sometimes, the best place to do it is on here, because people don't know who I am on here, that way, it's harder for people to judge me.

People on KidPub know who I am, more than anyone I've ever met in person.

I think we should have like an "Alternate" website if anybody really needs help.

I know many of you are going through hard times, but if you are really, truly depressed and are having as many problems as you're letting on, please go talk to someone you know in real life! Don't rely on your internet friends for support. There are people who love you and will listen to you in your own life.

I don't want you guys to start venting at me for this. If you are totally against what I'm saying and want to argue, get some real reasons and I'll listen to you. I don't want to start a fight because of this.

Please take into consideration what I'm saying. There are members on here who have been hurt because of these "venting" threads. (I'm not just talking about the Emotional Venting Thread, though it's included in this. There are multiple threads like it.) I've posted angry messages on here myself, and now I regret them, and wish I hadn't. I feel like these threads are highly inappropriate for this website. Maybe I'm making a big deal out of nothing, but I would like for you all to take this into consideration.

No your not making a big deal out of nothing. I mean writers block is just to talk about books write NES and ask questions about KP. I think games like the moment threads are fine, they keep the WB going but I don't think we should have threads were people just vent. If you want to make a thread like that make your own website its really easy! call it the venting website.

Oh and if you want to vent don't do it in cyber space.

On the topic of talking to people IRL, I don't really have anyone. I don't trust anyone enough to talk to. I cant talk to my friends because they dont understand, and my parents? My brother wants nothing to do with me, my dad told my depressed aunt to go kill herself, and my mom would think im overreacting. LST, DragonRider, and Cheeze are my best friends. They are the only ones I fully trust and they are the only people I know that love me and are there for me. They've stopped me from cutting several times and they have saved my life. If I never knew them, I'm pretty sure I would either be dead or in a hospital of some sort.
For some of us, KP is really the only place to go.

Did I really help that much? *is surprised* I always felt kind of... useless.
You are, and I can honestly say this, one of my best friends. *tackle glomps* WHY MUST WE LIVE SO FAR APART. *shakes fist at Life*


KP is very much like a home to some of us. I know it is for me. We reveal our true selves without fear of being judged or shunned - instead, we are surrounded by people who want to help us, even if they don't know us IRL. We feel loved when we feel like no-one IRL cares. We get to know the true people, their fears, their pains, their lives. We support each other and help each other through the hard times. We help each other climb back onto our feet when we feel down. KP is a global family. Without KP, I would probably have kept quiet about the bullying, and quite possibly started cutting. I would never have felt comfortable enough to talk to anyone IRL about my problems.
I know this is a kids website, but if people on here are hurting, they should have the freedom to talk about it among friends. If people don't want to be triggered, then they shouldn't go on threads like the EVT or Cutting.
This is a small, tightly-knit community. I would never have made as many friends on other websites had I not had the freedom to show my true self. KP has really helped me (and others) develop as a person, and I think we shouldn't change that.

That's me! *waves*

I agree. Except for Heather, I don't consider anyone closer to me than on KP.

Could I email someone?" and people would respond if they were open to listen to the other person's problems. Instead of people just telling the whole world their problems.

I would like to bring back what I said earlier.

Does anyone agree that we should make this thread? I think it would be a great alternative, because you can still turn to people for help, but it's not public.

Well, I highly doubt that anyone is willing to give me their e-mail.
So no, I do not agree.
Maybe we should write....
To: <insertnamehere>
From: <insertnamehere>
do not read unless you are <insertnamehere>
Also a great way to test us KPers reliability (not reading posts that aren't meant for us)
