Rald's introduction

Hello, my name is Rald. I'm here because I feel like the physical people in my life are too intimidating to approach, and all my established relationships are too hard to upkeep. I feel so trapped with people. I'm currently in art school and I have…See More

    Chat Guidelines

    PURPOSE

    WOL welcomes people from all walks of life, regardless of background, culture, nationality, race, gender, age, religion, and sexuality, to come and connect with others in a friendly and healthy manner. In order to foster a feeling of safety and comfort for all members, the following rules and guidelines are in place for everyone’s comfort.

    This is a chat site where adult, mature discussions take place. While discussions can be wide-ranging, this is a site dedicated to individuals who feel lonely, and discussions revolving around that topic should always take priority. We should encourage members to open up about their experiences of loneliness, show sensitivity, ask insightful questions, and offer constructive advice and feedback when appropriate. Try to avoid harsh or critical statements and see the good in what people are saying.

    Our moderators and facilitators strictly enforce the following rules and guidelines in order to foster a feeling of safety for all members.  Failure to follow these rules will result in a warning. Failure to curb negative behavior after a warning has been given will result in a temporary suspension. Continued failure to comply with the rules may result in a permanent ban.

    RESPECT FOR MODS/FACILITATORS

    Arguing with or bad-mouthing a facilitator/mod’s decision about the rules, or speaking of them in a negative manner in the main chat is prohibited and will result in first, a warning, then a suspension (a minimum of 4 hours), and then permanent ban should such behavior continue to occur. If you have an issue with a facilitator's decision, that discussion should take place in a private chat or message.

    RACISM, PREJUDICE, or DISCRIMINATION

    We strongly enforce a ZERO TOLERANCE zone for this type of behavior. This is a safe environment for folks from all walks of life. Racial slurs or joking about any group of people in a negative way is not acceptable.  No Exceptions.

    TRIGGER TOPICS

    Discussions that are sexual, violent (including suicide and self harm) or include illegal activities (such as drugs) sometimes cause harmful triggers to other members. At any time, should a member advise or state in the main chat that they are uncomfortable with a chat that includes sex, violence, or illegal activities (drugs), other members in chat will respect this statement and bring that discussion to a private chat or end the discussion altogether. If it does not end, a warning will be issued by the facilitator or moderator in chat. Any further discussion on the matter in main chat will result in those members having their chat privilege suspended without further notice.

    UNACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR

    Unwelcome or aggressive name calling and threats are not tolerated in chat. Should a heated discussion or an individual member become so negative or aggressive in nature that unwelcome name calling and threatening occurs, the offender will be given one (1) warning to stop by the facilitator or moderator in chat. Any outbursts including name calling or threats by any member after that warning will have their chat privilege suspended without further notice. Joking between friends, is permitted as long as all parties involved are welcoming the joking. However, discussions that include sex, violence, or illegal activities of any nature that make any member uncomfortable are not permitted.

    In addition, limit the use of profanity, do not harass other members, pressure them to share their personal information (email, telephone numbers, etc.) or otherwise try to overwhelm the chat room. The primary focus is on finding support and making new friends. It is not a dating site, and members should avoid making unsolicited romantic or sexual advances toward other members.

    We do not tolerate spam or using this site for unlawful personal or financial gains. If you wish to advertise other sites, please get permission from Sean Seepersad first or such advertisements will be viewed as spam.

    As much as we enjoy helping folks in distress, that come to chat with personal issues, we have limited resources to do so. Overwhelming, or flooding the the chat room with total disregard for other members is frowned upon. In addition, limit the use of profanity, do not harass other members, pressure them to share their personal information (email, telephone numbers, etc.).The primary focus is on finding support and making new friends. WoL is not a dating site, and members should avoid making unsolicited romantic or sexual advances toward other members. This is NOT a therapy site and no one here is equipped to provide therapy. If you are displaying signs of serious mental health issues we will recommend you see a professional.

    REINSTATEMENT

    If your chat privilege has been suspended indefinitely, you will need to contact a mod or a facilitator (Sean Seepersad, Steve V, Casper, Dear Prudence, Koala) through the messaging system. Showing remorse and change of behavior is required before being reinstated to chat. Continued offenses will result in a permanent ban. If a member is not comfortable with a discussion that is not included in these rules, there is an option to block other members. Should a member become uncomfortable with a discussion taking place in chat that does not violate the rules, they should respect the freedom of other members and come back to chat another time, or block the member(s) whose opinions or expressions make them uncomfortable.

    Again, this is a chat site where adult, mature discussions take place, including politics and religion. Sometimes these discussions become heated. As long as the discussions are respectful (no name calling, no threatening, no aggression) those discussions are allowed. This is about respecting other members freedoms and vulnerabilities. Use common sense. Be a respectful adult.

    These rules are in place to respect member’s freedom of expression, as well as to provide an atmosphere of safety for vulnerable members.Sean, the site owner, has an open door policy. If you do not agree with the activities or rules of the site, feel free to contact him for an open and frank discussion about any issues you may have.
