Reminder to our Beauty Talk Community

Good Morning!

 

In an effort to keep our boards a positive environment and continue to remain the fun loving product-obsessed community we are, I want to send a reminder to please, play nice with one another!

 

Everyone was new to Beauty Talk at one point or another and we ask that you please do not take it upon yourselves to "educate" or "moderate" our new friends with guidelines outside of what we already have posted. (regarding posts, board rules, etc.)  This is what us mods are here for! Smiley Wink 

 

We're happy to participate, chat about product and help out when needed, but keep in mind that every post that comes through IS indeed seen by us and we will take the appropriate action. You can absolutely message us or flag anything as "abusive" if you feel it truly necessary.

 

Please refrain from any insulting, negative or bullying comments (this includes PM's) to other users, moderators or admins, whether they are new or seasoned. This is NOT tolerated and should it continue we will have to reconsider allowing any of the TSB threads to be posted or even individual participation/memberships in Beauty Talk. We would truly hate to do this so please- embrace your fellow BT'ers and share your passion for product with each other! Smiley Happy Please keep in mind this is not a new rule, nor is it being changed for anyone new to the boards- but is the same reminder we post every few months.

I always get from Amazon, but I'm a Prime junkie so free shipping!

@quotidianus: I need this coloring book in my life (yes to Darwin!). We have an alarming number of coloring books at home, but I find coloring so relaxing and therapeutic. Also: Is there anything better than a brand new 96-count box of crayons? 

Re: Reminder to our Beauty Talk Community

Very little is better than a brand new 96-count box of crayons.  Maybe puppy tummies, fresh sheets, or a really good scotch ... but it is a stretch!

Re: Reminder to our Beauty Talk Community

My mother always said to avoid crossing your eyes. You don't want them to get stuck that way. ( not a scientific fact. )

Re: Reminder to our Beauty Talk Community

I was always told if I made a funny face and the wind changed directions it would freeze like that( also NOT a scientific fact< however very useful)

Re: Reminder to our Beauty Talk Community

Grabs my pencils to join the coloring fun. Smiley Happy

Re: Reminder to our Beauty Talk Community

Darwin Awards Smiley Wink Let's start passing some out! Maybe a thread? Let's start a Darwin Awards thread! Haha. Jk. No seriously. I kid I kid, but not really. No I'm joking, except I'm not. Haha!

 

 

Re: Reminder to our Beauty Talk Community

I have coloring books and colored pencils too!! The Dover books are awesome!!!

Re: Reminder to our Beauty Talk Community

I'm so glad I'm not alone in my love of coloring!  My friends used to think it was 'so sweet' for me to keep coloring books around so when kids were over they didn't get bored ... little did they know!

Re: Reminder to our Beauty Talk Community

Ha!  I always have colored pencils/crayons around.  Last Christmas, I found a Lisa Frank paint-with-water book for my niece.  Bought two. Smiley Wink

Re: Reminder to our Beauty Talk Community

I think coloring is still my favorite activity. Of course, my son loves that I love it because it gives us extra mommy/son time. Smiley Happy

 

My husband paints and is trying to teach me the many ways and mediums of painting...he's so good, but I don't think I'd ever be able to sit down with a canvas and make magic like he does. So, I'll continue coloring in books with my son while he's painting a masterpiece. lol Smiley Very Happy

Re: Reminder to our Beauty Talk Community

Painting is easy once you watch a Bob Ross video ^_^

Re: Reminder to our Beauty Talk Community

love coloring! and i love the dover coloring books. i know, i thought i was alone too. when i would tell people i like to color, i would always be like "lots of adults do it, there's adult coloring books, etc. etc." like falling over myself explaining that i'm not a weirdo. except i always seem to use the phrase "adult coloring books" which sounds like i'm coloring in pornographic scenes. alas, its just flowers and plants.

just wanted an excuse to post this pic! the floor represents stability in the vast sea of unease that has been going on and the dog in the picture in my eyes is exhaustedly clinging to the floor like  it's an oar from a boat after drowning in a sea of the anxiety anger unease yada yada that's been going on on both sides of whatever went down that I am ignorant of. again this in just a ninja attack of random silliness! Meep!

You are an English teacher.  I don't care if you're a world famous physicist, you are now an English teacher.

Re: Reminder to our Beauty Talk Community

I sincerely apologize if what I am about to say offends anyone. That is not my intention. I just want to offer food for thought. It is always best to be kind and give others the benefit of the doubt especially if you do not personally know them. Better for you-no negative energy, a clear conscience, and a good night’s sleep. Better for them- not feeling less because of something you have done or said, and maybe they can learn something from the community. You never know what the other person’s circumstances are. Are they 12? Do they have mental health issues? Do they have medical issues? Are there educational or experience issues? IQ issues? All deserving of understanding and support. Those with a lot of experience have an opportunity to be role models and to influence in a positive manner. I know-beating a dead horse. But, please humor me :-) You great ladies all have a lot to offer. Sometimes, we may just need a little reminder.

Re: Reminder to our Beauty Talk Community

Everyone deserves courtesy and should act in the same way, whether they have been here for 5 minutes or 5 years, whether they are 13 or 70, whether they have an advanced degree or a learning disability. 

 

That said, all advice should be well thought out and articulated. It should be based on experience or sources should be cited. You shouldn't state as fact what you read in passing or heard a friend say as though it is an absolute truth. You should not negate someone else's experience when they say something does or does not work 'for them'.  Words like "I think" and in my opinion" make it much easier for someone to understand your advice. And if you think someone is giving inaccurate or harmful advice, it is very wise to say so and/or ask a moderator to step in. 

 

We are all also expected to speak in a manner that can easily be read and understood, as outlined in the user guidelines. No one is expected to speak flawless English, whether or not it is their native language. It is, however, common usage to restrict use of capital letters to the beginning of sentences, proper nouns, and the odd bit of emphasis. Anything else is considered shouting.  Punctuation instead of long run on sentences also makes writing easier to understand. 

 

Yes, medical and mental issues deserve support and people deserve respect at any age. This is not, however, a mental care forum or a teenage chat forum or many other things. It is primarily a place to discuss beauty related issues and share friendships with people of similar interests. Anyone needing support beyond that should address their issues with resources who can better help them. 

Re: Reminder to our Beauty Talk Community

Yes, yes, yes! You so eloquently put into words what I've been thinking, thank you Smiley Happy

Re: Reminder to our Beauty Talk Community

I'm guilty with the run on sentences, especially when I'm on my phone Smiley Sad lol. I do agree with post. Well said!!

Re: Reminder to our Beauty Talk Community

Nicely put.  I agree with you.  Kindness is a virtue, but not to the point where it enables bad behavior.  Everything in moderation, as they say.
