[Dark] Depression/Suicides within the fandom (The revival)

TempFizzle
Wallet After Summer Sale -

It is sad how people who state their depression in the correct thread usually gets ridiculed, as if the thread only exists just to mock, blame or provoke. So why does this thread stay open when all it does is open a door to bullies to come into someone else's life they have no fucking clue who they are and pretty much try to degrade them? Perhaps even encourage them to die? This is an issue.

And this behavior is acceptable, mods? What the fuck. Irrelevant posting and antagonizing? Only visiting to troll? I'm not trying to be a hero but this is enough. I won't do a damn thing about it either, but I will refrain from this thread because of how people use it. Just like the vent and politics thread. Same here; just avoid it. The only help is to not focus on it, let trolls be trolls, do something worth living day-by-day because nobody here will give a shit if you die from someone calling you hurtful things on the internet, and anyone speaking out about it gets shit on.

Many might not care about what people say to others, but at least I have the balls to say no to it. If people followed the rules as good as they tagged images, or complaining about not tagging, the site wouldn't be so bad.

I'm done speaking. Let things as they go.

Of course it isn't acceptable. If someone here is bullying someone else, please report it.

That goes to everyone here — if someone is bullying or antagonizing someone else here, please report it.

No one should be trying to self-medicate themselves, or provide counseling to others, via social media. This isn't a clinic, and anyone who needs professional help isn't going to get it here.

Maybe it SHOULD be locked…

Why?

I think people should be able to discuss their depression here if they want. And some people who use this thread have found friendships or have gotten things off of their chest that have helped them.

If people are being assholes to others here, then report them and we'll deal with them.

Things seemed effed up right now, but they straighten out. /

In cases where abuse has not occurred, the negative opinions you perceive others to have of you are hyperbolic. /

Family can be toxic too. /

There are safer places for you to be.

I wish on sunny skies for all of you.

Those lines are some of the most heartwrenching shit I've read all day.

I see this:



And these:



And more recent stuff like this:



If you don't want to be here, that's your call — I'll be sad to see you go, but we're not going to let you complain on fan art images like this:



I think those are beautiful, and we're seeing more beautiful art day by day.

It's fine if you blame the volunteers on the site for your problems (whatever they are), but you don't get to post things like what you did on fan artist's work. For whatever reason you decided to attack that fan artist's work, that's not ok.

And if you aren't willing to use the site if you can't post things like that, then you should find a site that is more to your liking, and has rules that allow you to post things like that on fan artist's images.

But don't blame fan artists for it. That's you.

We take breaks, too — this place is like a fan convention that runs for 365 days a year, year after year after year.

Eventually you can't stand to be around it any more.

So take a break and do something else until you're recharged and feel like being back here again, otherwise it's too easy to burn out and burn all your bridges before you've crossed them.

Getting drunk and standing in the artist gallery bitching about what fan artists are drawing is just a cry for help, and there's only so many different kinds of "help" that the volunteers running the convention can offer you.

We have to protect our fan artists and the rest of the fans who are here. And if someone is being an angry drunk accosting people in the artist gallery, then we have to ask them to stop. Even if we like them.

Go have a snickers bar, and come back when you feel like having fun again.

I wasn't ready to see that.

The more I'm excluded the more I burn bridges, so I drink and turn into an asshole.

You've wasted enough time on me and now I need to find something else to do.


It's not much from me but thank you.

I hope you come back refreshed and feeling better.

I mean, we've talked before and I think you're one of the reasons I think this site is special and fun and can be someplace I want to donate my time. I like you. You seem ok, and I know the post you made was completely out of character and just weird. That's why we deleted it and didn't say anything — that's not you. So something must be going on.

Don't be gone long — turning your back on your support group, even if it's just a website full of pony fans — can do more damage than it solves.
