Basic Drug Discussion Forum Guidelines
We are here to promote harm reduction by providing accurate drug information and specific resources for reducing harm from drug use.
BDD is what we call a Question & Answer Forum. Almost every question posted can be fairly easily answered by a large percentage of our members, and anything that is more advanced should be moved to Other Drugs or the Focus Forums.
Therefore we do not encourage megathreads here. Their only real advantage is to facilitate ongoing and in-depth discussion, but the type of material BDD covers is simple and therefore doesn't benefit from that. They also make it difficult to find information and confusing for noobs.
If you're unsure where to post, post here anyway and allow a moderator to move it if necessary.
SAFETY FIRST! BDD is a harm reduction forum. Please keep this in mind when posting. We are not here to help you get as high as possible. We will not allow posts or threads promoting or glorifying dangerous drug use practices. We are here to promote safe, smart, and responsible drug use. Any threads or posts that are counterproductive to that goal will be closed.
NO FLAMING Be respectful. Abusive, offensive or harassing behaviour will not be tolerated.
CLOSED THREADS If your post gets closed, contact the person responsible for closing it. Do NOT start a new thread in protest. Any issues about how the forum is operated should be taken to PM with a Moderator, Senior Moderator, Admin, or posted in Site Technical Help.
Posting Tips & Rules
NB: this list is not exhaustive.
NO DRUG PRICES
NO URINE/ HAIR DRUG TESTING QUESTIONS
NO PILL OR SUBSTANCE ID THREADS If you have an unknown substance, there is no way for us to know what you have without a test. Otherwise it's purely speculative, and your subjective experience of a drug will differ from someone else's. A false sense of security based on speculation could be dangerous.
NO ASKING WHAT TO SAY TO DOCTORS TO GET CERTAIN DRUGS. Anything besides the truth is scamming, and we don't condone scamming doctors.
NO LEGAL OR PHARMACY LEGALITY QUESTIONS Laws vary widely from place to place, making it next to impossible for us to give you an accurate or valuable answer. Seek legal counsel if you're in need of an attorney.
NO QUESTIONS ASKING IF A MEDICATION OR DRUG IS RECREATIONAL This would not be harm reduction, but rather "how do I get high", which is not Bluelight's mission.
NO SWIM OR DISCUSSION OF MEDICATING ANIMALS
USE THE EDIT BUTTON TO ADD EXTRA DETAILS TO A POST
NO "URGENT REPLY" REQUESTS If you have an emergency, contact your local Emergency Medical Services.
NO POSTING TRIP REPORTS Please direct these to the Trip Reports forum.
