Should we have a positive area on the boards?

Hey everyone,


A few weeks ago an idea was suggested about having a section on the boards for positive threads. In this new space, there could be threads such as sharing one positive of today, reasons were proud of ourselves, a hope thread, positive quotes and lots more positive things. Feel free to have a read of that thread if you haven't seen it yet.


We've been reading through some of your comments on this idea thread and it's great to hear lots of you are keen for this type of space. We totally understand that sometimes we just want to absorb lots of positive vibes, and a dedicated area for that would let us do that easily. We're also mindful that having those nuggets of positivity dotted around the boards (in Anything Goes, Travel & Free Time etc.) helps the forum feel more positive as a whole, so there may be a balance we need to strike.


We'd really like to hear what you think about this idea so we’ve set up a poll for you to vote on. 


If you have any thoughts or general feedback about this idea or how it could work on the boards, do let us know by commenting below or sending us a private message – we’d love to hear what you think. :)

    I think that maybe, mood depending, positivity can be just as overwhelming as negativity for some- and having a seperate place aside would be beneficial to both those who can't take so much positivity currently as well as those who could really use with it. I think it's a great idea (:

    Thanks so much everyone for letting us know what you think of this idea. It looks like the majority of you are keen for this type of space which is cool. 

    We have a few ideas of how this type of space could work on the boards and it would be great to hear what you all think and if there's any other ideas you have. I'll be posting up another poll shortly to see what you think :)
