A lot of people just used that thread to dump complaints about their day and not really use it to seek advice or help, and I think that's what people's problem with it was. This new subforum is all about seeking help, so it has a completely different objective than that thread had.
And the subforum's a terrible move, imo. I'm sorry, but it's the same deal as the old depressing thread. People dump their complaints over there and it will get locked afterwards. I'm not using the subforum. I'd rather solve my own problems than having people on a forum not helping me.

Snow day, all yeah.

I think the difference is that the subforum is specifically about seeking help, and is more about larger problems. Like, that thread was really just "What's something bad that happened today that you will probably forget about?", but the subforum is more for people who feel like they are at a dead end in their life, and need advice long-term. Maybe I'm wrong, but that's just how I interpret it.

I'm sorry that you see it that way. A lot of people actually have taken advantage of the subforum and to be honest I feel like some people have already gotten some helpful advice. I'm not sure if you even read the forum at all.

I did read through it all. I just choose to not post in it because even if I post my problems on here, everybody will ignore it. It's like I'm a speck of dust that nobody notices while the much bigger pile of dust gets noticed instead. I'm sorry, but that's how everybody sees me around here except for one person.

Then I think you should get your eyes checked, because that's not true at all.

Nothing is better than people finding solutions for their own problems. The new subforum is to help those who struggle to find solutions by themselves. You're welcome to use to new subforum and you are free to choose not to. It's up to you.
