How fast will you be answered?Our boards are strongly moderated by staff and volunteers, but our community is truly so excellent that more times than not, there's little for us to moderate because our users are so great to one another, all by themselves.The boards are an anonymous service so long as you follow our guidelines about privacy, like picking a username you do not use anywhere else and does not personally identify you in any way, and do not post any personally identifying information.
Use for: Almost anything, be it simple questions or in-depth, involved discussions over time. Hablamos español: Tenemos voluntarios disponibles para los usuarios de habla hispana.
This service is also best for when you want both staff and volunteer engagement AND discussion with peers, or primarily peer-to-peer discussion. The SMS (text) service is a question and answer service available for those with mobile phones and the capacity to send and receive text messages.
Please remember or review our user policies and guidelines when using our direct services.
We cannot serve anyone under the age of 13 (due to United States COPPA policies), advise users about unlawful activity, nor replace the services of a healthcare provider. You can ask simple questions and have them answered quickly, or can have ongoing discussions over time -- be that hours, days, weeks or even months -- either with staff and volunteers, peer users, or both.
Additionally, before using a direct service, please search the main site or message boards first for answers, as we have a very small staff for our level of service. Longer or more complex topics are best for the message boards rather than for our chat or text services.
Message board posts are public, so if you're not comfortable having your questions or conversations be seen and kept public, even when your name and no identifying information is in them, you should not post on the boards.
