Gonna be shilling the fuck out of the Discord for a little while. I really want that server discovery status and we're going to need 1,000 members on there (so far we have 50-something).
For those of you who don't know what Discord is, think of it as the modern equivalent to IRC. It has a bunch of text channels but now it works on your phone and also has the option to voice/video chat. It's a great platform both for 1. current Bluelighters to hang out and talk, especially while tripping/under the influence & 2. for us to expand our userbase and do some outreach to younger generations who don't really use forums.
Anyways, everyone join the Discord and then go follow our social medias. This is incredibly important and it really helps us out.
Hey guys, i was wondering if anyone could help me please?
So my phone perma died the other day, so i bought a new one. Install discord and authy etc but when i try to login the Hcaptcha thing just keeps spinning. Theres an option to open in browser if you are having Hcaptcha issues, but it just does the same thing and never loads.
Anyone had this issue and resolved it before?
i have been a member since 2008 that should get a reward hahahahaha i see admin 2021 like ehhh OK................ -who else was here for long>?
2008 you say?
Well, if google mechanisms keep putting you on blocklists, you need to try to change your site code and maybe try to hide some materials from the searching bots so they will see only the information that will help you to get more visits and don't put you in blocklists. Also, if you are trying to promote your social media, I suggest you use **** that help corporate accounts and influencers get live followers and likes from active users. I have been working with those guys for a long time. They helped me a lot with promotional campaigns on my social media.
I just thought about this but wouldn't methadone clinics be a good place to have this site's web address and a brief description?If any of you guys could take a few minutes to do this, assuming you're on social media, it would help. We're making a concerted effort to try to boost our presence so we can attract new members and counteract google's blacklisting of us.
We could make posters with QR codes and links to our Discord and forums.We have safe injection sites but I've heard many don't go in for fear of someone seeing them. I was a user for years and when I was working Noone suspected it
Just a thought. I don't have a busy life so I could help.
Sorry to hear about your phone woes. Discord tries to take steps to ensure bot accounts and fake accounts are created I'm sure. Plenty of activity on the forum though if you're not on discord.So I was looking into the Discord thing because I used to be in another forum that kind of completely moved to Discord. When I tried to log in it asked for my phone number, and no way around that. I have no problem with whoever knowing my IP, nothing to hide here, but my phone number is sacred (though it could be tracked anyway, who are we fooling?)
The point is, usually they send you some code to your phone with a number you have to post back and so on and fact is that I won't get that message because the phone number I would provide has no phone connected to it. The whole procedure won't work.
Now I read that of course, Discord is not really connected to the forum, and forum users might be under another username on Discord because not everyone would use the same username as does @xtcgrrrl
What's the real-life incentive to join the Bluelight-Discod community?
@deficiT Thanks for your answer. I was looking for nonjudgmental information and found it here, plus as you say "a fabulous community".In regards to the real life incentive, I'd have to say Bluelight has been a refuge for thousands of people over the years that have sought a nonjudgmental place to discuss sensitive topics they can't get good advice about elsewhere. We offer unconditional support to people struggling with mental illness, and we have a veritable encyclopedia of years worth of drug use data, studies, and anecdotes. As well it's just a fabulous community to be a part of and a great way to meet people of like mind.
I don't know about your leaflet idea because that's quite a lot of paper to try to distribute to billions of people but I hate almost every social media platform. But unfortunately this day and age the internet and social media is the most practical way not to mention fastest way to get your ideas into other people's brains. (That sounding kind of creepy)I can't bloody get the hang of discord. I mean I went and registered, but then you just sit there on this initial page and there's no obvious menus or chat links or anything that tells you anything...
I should add that I'm an odd one out of my generation in that I loathe and despise social media, which appears to be very anti - social since about two thirds of people just use it to mindlessly insult total strangers, and TikTok in particular is Satan's brain fart Xd
If anyone wants me to design & print some good old-fashioned leaflets to hand around at appropriate venues explaining what BL is and does, I can do that
