Help us save the confetti cannon!

Hey everyone!

As some of you may have noticed, the confetti cannon has sadly been taken down :( 

We'd really like to bring it back but we're struggling to think of a caption we can put next to it! Can you help us think of some ideas so we persuade our tech team to bring it back? 

Before we had a caption that said 'Celebrate the community's 18th Birthday by firing our confetti cannon'. It's no longer the community's 18th Birthday so we need a new caption! 

Help us save the confetti cannon!

    How about, release the cannon when you're stressed! (could be like a distraction) idk
    Idk, um.. or.... nah never mind, that's all I've got.

    Maybe something like:

    "Fire off our confetti cannon to celebrate young people supporting each other online"

    Um... How about, "Click this button to be pleasantly surprised!"

    Or, "Help us celebrate a random stranger's birthday by firing our confetti cannon"

    Or, "Celebrate the awesome human being you are with our confetti cannon!"

    Or, "Go on, click the button to celebrate your success!"

    Or, "Click this button if you want some fun"

    Or, "Click the button if you have nothing better to do with ye life"

    :p haha!

    Alternatively, just pick someone else's suggestion (way better idea) :joy:

    Thanks everyone for all of your great ideas! 

    We've decided to go for something simple and just have 'Click for confetti' for now. We really like your ideas about self-care and celebrating young people so we're planning to change the title on awareness days e.g. World Mental Health Day & Young Carers Day. We can also change the colour of the confetti which is exciting!

    The confetti canon will be returning very soon! Thanks so much everyone :)

    Heya @The Mix  "Click here for confetti!" seems good!

    I see the cannon is back now, only, when I click on it, nothing happens? I'm not bothered but I'm not sure if it's an issue others are having, so I thought I'd quickly bring that up :)

    Hey @kathleen0172

    Do you have an ad blocker installed on your web browser? It wasn't working on mine either but it does when I disable the ad blocker. It's not blocking it on all ad blockers though so if you use a different one, hopefully it should work for you!
