How can I be helpful?


#1

Right now I feel terrible. I offend others when I just tell them to SBYP. Is their a nicer way of saying that? I try to use Happy faces to tell them I'm not mad but they still get offended. I also feel sad as I saw already so many people leave HS. I'm kind of depressed right now and when I'm honest people get offended. I just.. Don't feel my spot here


#2

Say "Please SBYP ;)" and they might not get mad. but if they are offended tag me, cause I want to see an example of what your posting that offending peeps.
don't offend the marshmellow goodness ^<^


#3

This is what I said before

People got offended by this ;-;


#4

Sometimes adding smileys or winky faces don't help.

You could say "I Think there's already a topic like this. -insert link here-
Maybe we could move the conversation over there?"


#5

The person who was offended was pretty much brand new to the forum, she might have not understood what you meant.


#6

Note that I was also brand new to the forum....

But I guess your right, should've let her know


#8

For someone brand new, that was actually really responsible of you to say and know that you're supposed to search before you post. You didn't say it in a mean way. It's not your fault.

I don't think you need to be much kinder but just in case:

"This is a really cool topic, but there's already one like it! Everyone forgets, but try to SYBP!"
