Welcome to  the WiD online community, a place for everyone who is supporting women in identity to collaborate.   You are welcome to browse the forums without an account and if you don’t find what you want, register for an account and post your question.

We want our community to be valuable and an enjoyable experience, so we have a few housekeeping rules we need you to follow

Be friendly
  • Be friendly to other members, don’t insult people, don’t patronise or belittle them, and don’t make personal attacks.
  • Think before you post – would you feel comfortable saying what you’re about to write face-to-face? How do you think that person or group for people might respond?
  • Do not express discriminatory or otherwise offensive views. You know the kind of thing – there’s no place for racism, religious hatred, sexism or homophobia here.
  • We have a ‘swear filter’ on the site, that censors a small list of words considered to be inappropriate. If you try really hard you can get around it: please don’t. Please – no images or other media that include unfiltered swearing, and no links to any content that includes significant unfiltered swearing.
  • Respect the opinions of others and their privacy. Don’t post personal details of others without their explicit consent and don’t post personal email addresses (including your own) on the public forums.
Keep it clean
  • Do not post or link to adult content, which would include sexually explicit images or text and graphic/violent images or video clips
  • Be friendly to other members. There’s no need to be hostile and aggressive just because you disagree with someone. There’s a big difference between respectfully disagreeing and being rude or disruptive. If you think someone is trolling please report it and a member of the team will look into it.
  • Stay on topic
  • Please keep your posts relevant to the conversation and on topic.
  • You can help keep the conversation flowing by posting in the correct forum, keeping to the topic of the thread and adding constructive posts.
  • If you get the feeling that members are naturally going off-topic on that particular thread start a new discussion in another thread and quote in the members who seem interested in talking about topic.
  • Do not post the same content multiple times, within either a single or multiple threads.
  • Please check before posting that the thread is still current. If you’re adding to a thread that’s been dormant for more than six months, you’re probably better off starting a new thread instead.
