It's Friday Five time! Friday Fives are all about acknowledging our favourite posts and our chance to give an extra shout out to the members who posted them!
As we go about our work, mods, mod squad and staff have been nominating their fav posts and then I've picked my favourite 5 out of their nominations. So, this is about thanking YOU, our members and our regulars for creating such a strong community here and acknowledging that it's you who make this place special (and a place that about 20,000 people visit every month for help).

Friday Fives Time!
Today is my first crack at Friday Fives, and I wish i could post about more than five. Like maybe a Friday Seventeen?... but that doesn't sound as good... hmm
Friday Fives is one of the ways we say thanks for all the awesome things you share and create on the forums. Here's one of the reason's why:
Forums are interesting places; for every person that posts there's about 10 people who read the post and get something valuable out of what they read. Another way of looking at that, is every time someone has the courage to tell their story on here there will be at least 10 other people who read it who are going through the same thing but aren't ready to talk about it yet. For those people, what you share makes a HUGE DIFFERENCE.
No joke, what you write and share on here saves lives, cool right?
Friday Fives for Friday 28th of August

I'm up for a Friday Seventeens post (Friday Fifteens would kind of solve the catchiness issue though. Can that be a thing? haha)
Seriously though, awesome work guys. I love coming on here and reading/contributing to everyone's posts
