    • Clarifying How To Use the Report Feature   06/29/20

      Hello. I have noticed a great deal of confusion regarding how to use the report feature and what is expected regarding reports, so I am making a clarification announcement to users who may be unfamiliar with how the report feature works. Please note we have this rule regarding reports: 16.  Do report. Do not make frivolous reports (such as "I don't like this person"). Frivolous reports will result in a warning and possible ban. a. When reporting, please give a reason. Reports citing what rule the post is breaking and giving some information are way more valuable and will get the issue resolved faster. (Reports with no explanations sometimes require mods to go through and skim the entire thread to find out what's going on. Please save us time if you can). b. Don’t waste the mods’ time. Report people for breaking the rules, otherwise don’t report. [Rules in their entirety can be found here.] We also have a wonderful tutorial on how to use the report feature created by one of our former moderators which you can find here. In essence, we enforce the rules as they are written. In a rare occasion there may not be a direct violation but the user is still conducting themselves inappropriately and how we handle that is up to the moderators discretion. We do our best. We also encourage you to use the report feature to report posts that have been edited down to nothing or if you double posted and would like your double post hidden. Also, please note that we do not provide updates on reports. We get far too many to be able to keep up with every one. You are welcome to message a moderator to ask about your report, but please know that we cannot and will not divulge any information on whether we banned the user you are reporting. Simply that we have taken appropriate action. I hope this helps provide further clarification on how to use the report feature. Should you have any questions not clear in these instructions, please feel free to message me or Nyx. Thank you.

  1. (does anyone go through this topic anymore? warning, this is long) 
     
    I don't know how to start this, and it's going to sound stupid, but I have been going through this existential crisis type of thing lately.  If I call it that. I have been thinking about my college and career in general, I am still currently in school. I think I am younger than some PULL members, I know some are adults here. So I wanted some advice (sigh being an adult lol). From when I was still in elementary, I wanted to draw, so I drew for a few years and wanted to become better. I thought maybe it will be my career because I still draw up to this day, but it's not anymore. I don't think I'm improving at art at all and I'm not that good in general, so I'm losing interest of staying with that career, maybe just a hobby. I don't want to become an art teacher or something like that. So when I ask myself, "what career do I want to go with?" I don't know. I feel stuck. I know you might be thinking, "no matter what age you are, it's still too early, just wait!" I do think it will come later, however they keep telling me to prepare at least. If I'm going to have a career, I want to work hard for it. I'm afraid of failing school and my grades. My other interest is being a musician, maybe a singer (or something else, it's possible that I don't have singing potential lol) or a dancer of some sort. I don't go through any lessons, but I want to start. My dad told me to have a career and job that you enjoy, because you succeed better. I was thinking of singing, because I have severe social anxiety, and honestly it's getting really bad. I feel if I sing it will help me become confident with my voice since I think it's too quiet or I am just bad in speaking in general. I also have been inspired to sing because it seems enjoyable. Of course being a singer for my career is a way harder, because of competition now days. (Not that I dream of being Beyoncé or anything). I also feel like playing instruments as well, I have been having a interest for that for a while. I'm sort of depressed about this, because I also want to do this for my parents. As their daughter, I can't help but feel like a burden. I have average grades, not that mentally well, or I don't do much. I tend to stay inside my house because I haven't been feeling good lately. Even my dad is trying to tell me to stop staying inside. I want to achieve more as a person and make my parents feel better about me. I'm not that close to them anymore but I would feel better if I could not disappoint them. And if your wondering about me seeking help, I do, I just haven't had the opportunity to see them yet. If you guys have any thing to say, I will appreciate it, thank you  
     
    (And wow, my posts are actually typed neatly for once)
    oops, so sorry that the text is big! it's being funny 
  2. My second year living in a dorm away at college. My second year having issues with roommates. General rundown:
    1st year: Roommates were completely unhygenic and ran everyone out of the room. We all got moved second semester.
    2nd year: Roommates are extremely entitled. They brought 0 furniture for the dorm (but they asked us to even though we get a couch and table etc). One roommate transfers, they basically drive two others out and they take furniture with them. Then they come to ME expecting me to buy furniture. They've broken my makeup, ate my food, threw away a friend of mine's clothing, acted like I didn't exist for almost 2 months and excluded me from so much. But they come into my room and hint they want my TV. Then the only time they text me over break is to ask what I'm bringing that they need. I like to share, but I was basically bullied out of using our living room so I have NEVER used any of their stuff. And I even bought 150+ kitchen sized garbage bags and they used them all in a month. I do my own trash, clean after myself etc.
     
    The issue: the RD gets PISSED if you try to move and after all the drama they caused with the other roommates she hates our entire cluster. And I can't live off campus because my scholarship dictates I live in the dorm. Does anyone have any advice on what to do???
