Hello everyone, Some of you may know that when making posts on the forums you are limited to 2,500 characters. We'd love your feedback on this, so we have two questions for you. How do you feel about the current character limit? How would you feel if there was no limit at all? We would love to hear your thoughts. Project TeamBeyond Blue

Hello everybody Some of you may remember our big update in July 2022 with a brand new look and feel for our Forums, and we thank everyone for the feedback and support while we’ve improved on this new experience. Coming up soon we’ll make our next big change, and this time our login, registration, profile picture upload and account management features are getting a refresh. What does this mean? The software that runs the login and registration experience will be swapped out for a new, secure platform to handle your anonymous identity while you use the Forums. We’re really excited for this opportunity to improve the experience of using the Forums while also increasing the security of your information. It also will finally resolve an issue many of you have raised with us - that you haven’t been able to update your profile pictures / avatars. As part of the change we’ll be moving that feature into the Forums itself - and in the not so distant future you’ll be managing it in the same place you manage your notifications (https://forums.beyondblue.org.au/t5/user/myprofilepage/tab/personal-profile). From this point on, we’ll be using this space in the forums to provide updates on the work that’s in play, to get your feedback and comments and really bring you along this journey. When can we expect these changes? At this stage we’re aiming to make this improvement at the end of March 2024 - and if there’s any changes to that timing we’ll be sure to let you know. We would love to hear your thoughts, feedback and questions! While we can’t respond super quickly to all questions, the aim is to send answers to any questions we’ve received. Thanks for your support.

Hello, it’s AL2. I finally found all my replies just recently from over 10 months ago and was replying to everyone who sent wonderful advice to me!!! I’m so sorry I couldn’t find them before. I was in the middle of replying to another C.M. When I was interrupted, I turned iPad on again and now can’t find the reply I was writing to thank someone. I am logged in and keep going to either my discussions or my thread but can’t see any of the lovely people who wrote to me. HELP please again!!!! I have tried everything I can think of!

Hey Divine Goddess, this post is specifically for you!I was just thinking that if you didn't know how to read a thread/post, then you might not be able to access any answers provided - bit of a catch 22...I see you are okay accessing a TOPIC using the blue buttons and links, and have ably demonstrated how to start a conversation, but the thing you need to know is that most TITLES (and particularly those of threads posted) and basically anything written in blue, link to the content (- even the links at the bottom take you somewhere relevant) and from there it is easy to click the REPLY button (once signed in) to add your say.Just hover over everything to find a link.Have fun exploring and do check the FAQ if you haven't already.
