I might be seeing something's mostly at night, like a bunch of dots are moving around in a pattern.

Wow! I know that this post is in the last year, but I see those dots as well too! For some reason they are always pink, don't go away when you put your hand in front of your face, and get bigger and darker in color when they are closer to your face. They also can look like ladybugs or spiders sometimes. I'm just shocked. I always thought I was the only one who could see them. My Captcha says <wakee> I'm already awake!

Hey Admins, I made a post on this thread a couple days ago and it never showed up? I was wondering if that was intentional or it just got missed. I wouldn't have thought it would be removed for content, because there have been posts about this topic before (the topic being gender identity). Thanks!

I think it was deleted. While we allow diverse characters in stories, we limit the discussion of CBer's own personal identity.

I don't know what the original post was about, but I wasn't aware that CBers weren't allowed to talk about their personal identity... Cultural identity seemed ok to talk about (culture thread) so I'm curious why we can't talk about gender identity. It doesn't seem like an inappropriate topic or anything, and I feel bad that a CBer felt brave enough to open up about their gender identity only to have the comment deleted.

Certain kinds of personal identity, not all.

Same as Fidelity! 

Except, there was actually a whole thread discussing gender identity and that didn't get deleted. I understand that the admins are just doing their best but maybe you could make a list for yourselves so you agree on what can/cannot be posted? I just feel like there have been a lot of inconsistencies lately and it is kind of hard for us to know what is acceptable and what isn't. I'm not trying to attack the admins or anything like that, I understand that you can't have like a group huddle or something every time a comment comes in (as that would be a) extremely inpractical b) ...slow, and c) kinda annoying for you) but could you at least just make sure you all have the same rules? 

I understand if this isn't possible, but it is kind of annoying/confusing for us when we don't know what's okay to post and what isn't.


We do have common guidelines, but they are applied to variable comments. Each Admin applies the guidelines the comments being reviewed.

I...don't get Cricket. I've never even opened one. I just found this one day and here I am. No association what so ever with Cricket.

Heh, that's fine. I only came because my sister introduced it to me. I felt like I should be reading Cricket if I was on  here so I recently started ordeing them but if I'm being honest I don't feel like reading them.

I hate it, I hate the bright lights and the screaming, I just want to dive underwater and stay there, where its dark and cool and silent.

I feel like im trapped inside my mind, honestly.
I feel like no one will ever accept me for who I am, that I'll have to keep running from myself forever and ever.

oh my gosh, why cant life just be easy? 
Why cant things go they way I want them to?

I get this. I do. I hate the screaming and the crazyness... and I'm... scared. Sometimes I feel just like this. I hope everything gets better <3

I hate it when people call me he. I'm a she and I think that people should respect that. Even my dad sometimes calls me a he. It really annoys me, even though it shouldn't. I don't even know how people mess the two pronouns up with me. I have a high piched voice and look like any other girl. When I was little, I wore dresses and skirts just to remmind people that. Its mostly my family that messes up my pronouns, but it also sometimes happens at school. I guess that this is more of a rant then a connfession, but I just needed to get it out.
