• Hey Visitor,

    In light of recent events, all community members in the US should reach out to their representative in regards to the Stop Online Suicide Assistance Forums Act that has been introduced in congress. This bill, if passed, could criminalize this community and hold it liable for simply hosting information.

    You should be able to locate and contact your represenative by going to this website. You can also contact Lori Trahan, the one spearheading this bill by calling her office at (202) 225-3411 or by leaving a message on the contact form on her site.

    One of the best ways to combat this is to make your voice heard. We're not political activists, but we made this notice to let you know that you do have a voice and that you do have representives that represent you in congress.
Why.

I used to frequent a self harm recovery forum, and given the need for discretion for users who didn't want anyone else they lived with to see them there, the site implemented a panic button.

Basically how it worked, was once enabled, you could put in a URL of your choosing via profile settings, I think. Then a red ! button would be in one of the bottom corners of the page, and if someone came in, click it and it redirects to the selected URL.

I don't live alone, and get paranoid that I might be caught browsing or posting here by the person I live with. Would it be possible to implement such a thing here?

...Good point. Oh well, never mind. Thanks for the reply. :)
Best bet, and easier to not mess up pressing is if you're on windows, hit the windows key + D and it minimises everything and just shows your taskbar, make the desktop icons compact so the title bar doesnt show, only the browser icon.

This is very quick and effective. Then just pretend you're doing something on your desktop for a moment.

Hey, sorry it took me a while to get back to this, I haven't been on for a while. But this is a really good idea I hadn't thought of, thank you!
