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" 
    Oh I love this one :heart:

    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:

    Lol this one
    “And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley

    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!
