Hello and welcome to The Mix forums!
This thread is a quick introduction to who we are, what this place is for and how to get started.
Who are we?
We are The Mix community - a pretty mixed bunch of people who are interested in or affected by the issues covered by The Mix. We're from all over and all walks of life.
Most of us are from the UK and between 13 and 25, but some are older or younger. We talk about things happening in our lives and provide each other with information, advice or just a friendly ear. Though, being an internet forum, we do have a whole section for general banter
What is this place for?
These forums are a moderated, judgment-free place to ask for advice or talk about anything that's affecting you or playing on your mind.
We have forums for:
- Health & Wellbeing
- Sex & Relationships
- Drink & Drugs
- Home, Law & Money
- Work & Volunteering
- Student Life
- Travel & Free Time
As well as discussion boards, we also run live chats most days, and of course, there's loads of information on all the areas above on the 'Get Info' part of The Mix.
If you haven't already, you can register here.
Make sure you've read our Registration Rules and Good Manners Guide as they'll give you a good idea of how things work around here.
It might also be worth taking a look at our Mods and Moderating Policy.
Why not fill out your profile a bit too? You can add some info about your interests, add a profile picture, an avatar and even a signature.
Once you've done all that, feel free to get posting!
Why not start by saying 'hi' and introducing yourself in our Introductions Section?
If it's all a bit confusing, post in our Help Desk and someone will get back to you.
