The Wolfhome Administration has noticed an increase in posts/topics being reported for not including proper Trigger Warnings. Trigger Warnings are deemed to be a courtesy, but they are also now officially required as stated in our Forum Rules. A more detailed explanation of what is acceptable & unacceptable regarding Trigger Warnings is quoted below. If any posts or topics that are posted or created that violate these regulations, please report it to a Forum Moderator or Forum Administrator.
: Used to alert people when an internet post, book, article, picture, video, audio clip, or any other media that could potentially cause extremely negative reactions (such as post-traumatic flashbacks or self-harm) due to its content. It also alerts others about content that may be upsetting or disturbing in nature. Sometimes abbreviated as "TW."
We all have different experiences through life and it is impossible to censor everything to appease everyone.
