I go straight to the forum I’m interested in. Access from my phone all the time and I do t see a new posts or unread posts link - I would use these if they’re available on the mobile site

I tend to go straight to Introductions, and then when I've finished there, I start clicking around wherever catches my eye. Unless I need to post something then I go to the section for that. :)

I didn't know there was a new posts button. Normally I just browse, but a lot of the time I check my notifications.

I use the Quick Links menu (on my phone screen that's at the top left and looks like a square button with triple horizontal bars) and mostly go to new topics or unanswered topics.

I also use unread topics but I keep accidentally marking all topics read on my phone screen so that doesn't help. Tell me if you are expecting a follow up on a conversation; I don't mean to ignore you.

I also use "active topics" but not very often.

I always think it would be useful if I could vary the criteria for "new topics" (the age that new" means)

I am an erratic and chaotic user of Havoca. My moods dictate the way I decide on what to do on the site. Sometimes I feel positive and so go straight to the Introductions and respond to new users with a cheerful 'hello and welcome'. My wording is different for every new user to make me seem more interesting. If my positivity holds out I will read a few new posts and support the author with some caring and supportive words. I avoid the Emotional and Physical Abuse forums because I struggle with them. I tend to be almost obsessed with the Sexual Abuse forums because it was such a major part of my growing into an adult. I crave understanding as I sometimes cannot understand myself.
Every so often I dip into the Humour forum but I am never sure if my humour will be taken as such.
I do look at other areas but a lot of it goes over my head.
I love it when someone starts a new quirky topic such as this one I am responding to now.
I don't always use Havoca just to wallow in self pity!
When my moods dip I tend to repeat stuff I think I have said so many times previously. The anger, frustration and sadness take over me and I need to tell everyone on Havoca that I feel sad and need them to listen and comfort me, at this point there is nobody in the world that matters other than myself. I regress sometimes to the little boy that suffered so much.
Havoca friends then rally and bring me back to a peaceful state of mind. I then try and thank the people that saved my sanity on yet another occasion.
I tend to look for specific users posts as I am fond of their style. I am almost a weird sort of fan of their work.
I get excited when I see that someone has Sent me a PM, I like to think that this level of support is sent from the heart and just for me. I have specific users that I genuinely feel are my friends that I might even meet one day but perhaps in another life.
I am not brilliant on these sort of sites for working my way around and sometimes feel overwhelmed with there being so much to access.
Ultimately I have found a massive amount of support from Havoca and I wonder if my life may have come to an end late last year had certain users not responded as they did.
Finally, this is a great topic/ thread.
Perhaps I have over done this reply!!!

I mainly use the forum to rant and rave whenever I feel like expressing negative emotions. I realised bottling up emotions causes more pain, prolonger pain unresolved anger. I have made the goal of venting on this forum so I can let the energy be released from me instead of letting it fester. I thank havoca for designing this forum well. I have changed a lot and no longer afraid I can stand up for myself. I am not ashamed of what I went through. I feel like I have power and freedom.
My priorities:
Me, myself and I
