FRAGILE: Mental Disorders LJ Community [Aug. 21st, 2007|11:27 am]
After Silence
haulliefree

Since I know so many who struggle with mental illness I am going to plug Penny's NEW site here on my LJ, and of course everywhere else tonight ;) If you have a mental illness please join and find comfort and support with others. It's very new so there are only a few members but hopefully the community will bloom with many supportive and inspiring members. Everyone no matter who they are, no matter what diagnoses, deserves an equal opportunity to speak out and be heard regarding mental illness. Even now there is hope.

[fragile] shadows & reflections: 
a safe haven for those struggling with mental illness

Moving Now [Feb. 28th, 2007|10:59 am]

Sorry for the short notice guys, but I just talked on the phone with our new host and they will perform the move right now. Moving today will save us time and will avoid the need to close the board for 48 hours.

During the next 2 days, you may randomly access the board on the old or new server but all information are saved in our database so no posts will be lost!

Again, I'm sorry for the short notice! We should be moved shortly :)

Looking for MAY 2007 Submissions [Feb. 15th, 2007|01:26 am]
After Silence
haulliefree

Hello Survivor Friends,

The Survivor Digest is currently looking for MAY 2007 submissions for our next zine for survivors of rape, sexual abuse and domestic violence. If you would like to get involved now is a wonderful opportunity for you to spread your wings and fly.

Every single person here has the potential to speak out, whether you're telling your story, writing a short story, painting, drawing, writing lyrics and poetry or inspireing others with a single quote...you make the difference and together we can truly break the silence, one VOICE at a time.


CLICK HERE TO READ ALL OF THE DIGESTS

What is The Survivor Digest?

The Survivor Digest is a quarterly Zine (magazine) that was released in August of 2006 which includes columns, stories, poetry, creative writing, original artwork, campaigns and resources for survivors by survivors and whatever else we can come up with to help make an impact in the lives of survivors and supporters worldwide.

Participants interested are able to send in their materials via e-mail to the digest for consideration in an upcoming issue. A new digest will be released every 3 months for sale online via the 'Voices of Strength' web site and the next edition will be released May 15, 2007 so now is a great time to get out your pens, start typing, pull out your paint brushes and do something important for the worldwide community. Empowerment = Passion on the road to recovery...

For Additional Information Please go to: http://www.voicesofstrength.org/survivordigest.htm

What is a Zine?

"Zines are publications done for the love of doing them, not to make a profit or a living. Most zines are photocopied. Some are printed offset like a magazine, but with a print run of hundreds or possibly thousands instead of hundreds of thousands or more. In a zine, you might find typos, misspelled words, improper grammar, and brilliant or radical or just plain honest ideas that simply aren't allowed in Time, Newsweek, or People Magazine. Zines are different from e-zines, which are "zines" published on the Internet (via personal web pages or email lists). -Underground Press

What kind of material can I submit?

Any of the following items are up for consideration in the up and coming survivor digests, however we are FULL ON LONG LINED POETRY so please do not send poetry for the May edition unless it's about 10 lineslong.

*** Columns/Articles, Artwork, Poetry, Creative Writing, Survivor Stories, Campaigns, Photography, Resources, Inspirational Stories, Quotes, Graphic Art, Foundation Information, Organization News, Awareness Information, Letters to VOS.

How do I submit my Material?

Please send all materials to me, Haullie Free with the below information included. If you are sending picture attachments please make sure they are clear and un-sized so that they are big enough to re-size. If you are sending file attachments please make sure they are not already formatted and do not press the "enter" button when you type a story to move down a line cause that takes a lot of editing.

I don't believe this [Dec. 12th, 2006|03:27 pm]
After Silence

the_ick_factor
I honestly do not know what to say... I have never been so stressed over AS before. We finally fixed everything that needed to be fixed, including the chat... and our host informed me that they are performing some "some vital upgrades" to their company and we may experience downtime. This is what I replied:


"Steve,

Thank you for letting me know.... although I must say this couldn't be happening at a worse time. We had problems for days and when the forum is finally running smoothly again, members see it gone once again.

Will this be fixed in the next few minutes or hours? We would have appreciated being notified that this was going to happen so to have the time to let members know about it and give them an optional url to visit in the meantime.

Please kindly let me know if anything can be done to speed up the process.

Thank you,
Vera"

What I was really thinking was "ARE YOU KIDDING ME????"

I don't know what to say, honestly. This has nothing to do with our website or forum and is totally out of our hands. I spent all yesterday night up and this morning trying to fix everything, and when I'm finally done... they start upgrading shit.

I'm sorry, that's all I can do/say... I apologize.
