Triggering Prefixes. - May 19th 2013, 12:35 AM

HEY GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! .

Random question, you know with Triggering prefixes (for those who don't know, warning that a thread may be a spoiler or upsetting to people battling with certain things, whether it has bad language etc), what if a thread deserves more than one prefix? .


“At times the world may seem an unfriendly and sinister place,
But believe that there is much more good in it than bad.
All you have to do is look hard enough,
And what might seem to be a series of unfortunate events may in fact be the first steps of a journey.”

If a thread needs more than one prefix then you can use the general one, the one that makes the most sense, or one that covers the triggering content not covered by the forum the thread is in. For example if you have a suicide thread with strong language in the Depression and Suicide forum, you can (usually) just use the strong language prefix since the content is covered by the forum. I've also seen people just extend the thread title to include the extra warning or you can warn people at the beginning of the thread itself.

As Kate said, basically use the general prefix if it deserves more than one. That way, people will know that it can be triggering on more than one topic, whereas if they saw, say, Triggering: ED, they'd know it is just triggering for EDs.

I agree with Kate. When I post a thread that has many different triggering topics, I put a prefix on it that covers what I mention and talk about the most in my thread.
