Copying zeal’s OP from Coronavirus Thread #2
A continuation from Coronavirus Thread #ssp
This thread is intended as a safe space for all regarding the current Corona outbreak. Please read the following for some guidance on how to approach it. A note on SSP and spoiler tag usage in these times
For “shitposting”, memes, and suchlike, we have the separate Coronavirus shitposting thread to help keep some potentially triggering content separated. Feel free to use that as an outlet for jokes and suchlike as everyone knows what to expect in there.
Please also be aware that while as a community and a group of moderators we’re trying to keep this thread as accessible as we can for all, it’s also an outlet for people to express their own frustrations and personal situations. While we’re hoping to catch a lot of potentially triggering content, we won’t catch it all, so please be aware that when engaging this thread you may encounter distressing things. If you think what you’ve read may also trigger others, please flag it to the mods and ask us to spoiler. Please go easy on each other both when responding to something you think is out of order and any flags raised; most of us are stressed and not always our best selves at the moment - it’s unlikely that any posts are intentionally harmful or flags are personal.
For those of you struggling financially because you’re out of work, have extra demands on you or you don’t have your usual outlets for mental health available and you need to spend a little extra on home entertainment, please remember we also have the DiS Community Hardship Fund available. It’s there to be used in times like this, and yes, it does include you.
Finally, please look after yourselves as much as possible. We all want to be there for our loved ones around us, but we can’t help our family, friends and communities unless we’re in a fit state to do so.
