    Quick question as I can't seem to find a quick questions thread (or a particularly extensive site breakdown/faq), but I was wondering what the precise function of the brainbent forum is. Is it just for venting/giving support? Is there a more definite criteria for what would belong in there as opposed to, say, the bbbbrrraaaaiiinnnssss forum (and indeed the other advice forums), especially seeing as there seems to be a lot of crossover in the type of things discussed.

    It's an offshoot of the brainbent fanfic/blog's old "group hug" thing. I think in practical terms on this forum that mostly means it's under the care of @Vast Derp and I think @rainbowbarnacle rather than just Jesse and seebs.

    In practice it seems to mostly be used for venting/not-okay rambling about whatever, whereas brains tends to get more threads about specific mental illness/brainweasels/neurodivergence stuff and advice tends to get used more for requesting-advice-on-what-to-do rather than just needing support. There is a lot of overlap, of course, but I don't think that's a bad thing. There's not really a "wrong place" for most stuff.

    Alright.

    Another quick question - what are the criteria to no longer be classified as a "new member"?

    (Maybe it would be a good idea to have a dedicated quick forum questions thread so that this forum doesn't get crowded)

    Idk if that title changes on it's own almost everyone here uses custom titles which you can set somewhere in I think profile preferences or personal details?

    I tried changing that and it didn't appear to work. What's more, my name displays in a different colour text in the user list.

    I remember when I signed up it said something about having to reply to an email? I don't think I ever got that - maybe that's the problem?

    I think it changes on its own after a certain number of posts, but you can change it immediately under personal details. Doublecheck you clicked the save button at the very bottom.

    It's possible that your name displays in a different color in the user list because your settings make it so other people can't see that you're online - is it a much lighter blue than the others? In that case I think it's meant to show that you're online but other people won't see your username in the list.

    Okay, so you guys were all right! I fixed all of the things from settings. I'm not sure why it told me I'd need to reply to an email when I first signed up but it doesn't seem to have made a difference anyway so there we are I guess.

    Ouija Nani the fuck?

    That's actually a seebs-patented idea in which it's for people who have very overprotective/controlling people in their lives. No confirmation email? Well shoot, can't spy on my loved one.

    Or something to that effect. I know it was a red herring at the very least.
