What should we call these forums? Your feedback please
Should we name these forums? Or is the beyondblue forums clear enough, do you think?
Some suggestions that came through our blueVoices group recently included:
- bb Neighbourhood
- bb Alliance
- bb Exchange
- bb Buzz
- bb Collective
Be keen to hear your feedback below. Do any of the above names take your fancy? Do you have a suggestion of your own? Do we need a name at all?
Beyond Blue Forums works well for me, but I also like Hideaways suggestions of BB Conversations or BB Discussions. I also like to think of the forums as a Community.
To me BB Collective sounds a bit too Communistic! Ha. Ha.
It is great people have made suggestions. Like Hideaway also mentioned, if it's not broken, why fix it.

Hi Chris B,
I also like to think of the forums as an online community.
The link to the sign up page says something about joining the Beyond Blue online community and this seems appropriate. When struggling with anxiety and depression as a sufferer or carer you can become quite cut off from the broader community and family and friends. Also a lot of support services come and go as funding becomes available or disappears.
I think it would be good (if there was a new name) to reflect this community appeal.
Yes, I thought the name "bb Crossroads" was an interesting one too. We all come here to meet at different crossroads, while at the same time we are at different crossroads in our lives. Thanks for your encouraging comments. I think I'm old enough to remember Crossroads, the soapie, but I don't. Wobbly walls! what have I missed out on?!
