Welcome to the "I Wish Someone Had Told Me That" board
Here you can read or share an inspiring story, personal note, or just about anything on your mind, related to family-building or health challenges. (Be advised that its illegal to post someone else's work (e.g. poem) without the author's permission so please be caution about that.) Please use this board freely. And if you have any question donít hesitate to contact this Board's moderator.
At FT, we must try to remember board ediquette.
Confidentiality and Privacy are important not only to you but also to your fellow members. We highly encourage the following practices:
- 1. What is said in one post should not be taken to another post by a different member.
2. Avoid mentioning your/others personal information publicly. This includes but not limited to full real names, employment and phone numbers of the employees in their own buildings, address, email addresses, etc.
3. Similarly to the above please don't expose fellow members' or nonmembers personal information in your posts.
4. Please don't discuss other members' personal affairs in your posts. This includes any item from their private life and health condition. After all, you probably wouldn't like someone else discussing your private affairs in public.
If your post is concidered "sensative", its best to put a tag in the subject line so that it alerts the readers. The (ment) for mention tags are:
- (preg ment) for pregnancy
(child ment) for children
(infant ment) for infant; obviously LOL
(nb ment) for new borns or baby announcements
(m/c ment) for miscarriages; also may include still births or early losses after birth
(loss ment) for death of a baby/child or other death in the family
These tags will help readers decide if they want to view a particular post on a particular day. If you didn't add it in the title, and I catch it, I will adjust your title to reflect the nature of the post. Also, if you need to know what some of the abbreviations mean, visit the acronym page first.
For those that don't know, they have this neat feature called Private Messaging ("PM" pronounced pim, pimmin, pims, pim'd) on this setup. This neat feature allows you to email someone without really emailing them. Its private between the two of you. There are several ways to do this:
- 1.) Go to your Profile and into Private Messages. Then create a new message and type in the recipients name.
2.) Go to an old post of theirs and click on the "pm" button at the bottom of their message block.
3.) If you saved them in your Buddy List, you can click on their name through that in your Profile Home Page.
4.) Find their name on the board, click it to bring up their profile and click on "Send [namehere] a Private Message!" in the 5th block down.
Infertility has its effects on people and some days are harder than others. Sometimes you will notice in a signature "angel" when refering to a child or baby. It is usually understood to be an "angel in heaven" as in "death of a child". If you have used this term to describe your living child, you may want to change it so people don't assume the child has passed on.
Posts that are flammatory, or disrespectful, will be removed. If you have a problem with a poster, on board or off, please contact me or use the "Report" link below the posts. Debates will not be removed but certain posts within the debate may be removed if it is concidered flammatory, antagonizing and/or insulting.
Lastly, lets remember that this is a board and words/tones can be taken out of context. Please don't assume someone is being snippy or rude. Don't be afraid to ask questions about a posting-tone to help clarify. Boards have no voice or physical gestures to see to get the tone of the post.
