    I think the groups could adequately provide this function, though I also don't see why there is any reason not to create a sexuality-specific journals section, when they are already split up by gender, and age. The logic for that (I assume) is talking to others with similar life experiences to oneself. I see no difference between that differentiation, and one based on sexual orientation; there are shared experiences and cultural connections that are specific to the LGBT community as well.

    I believe it worked great and will continue to work great in the future. Even better so with the more personalizable group function on here. :)

    The groups may work fine for that. I wasn't a member when they existed before.

    To be fair, I even question the "women's" journal section. Will keep reading and responding your comments and appreciate this discussion - please keep it up, Fapstronauts! Going to do my best to make NoFap's forums as epic as possible.

    I say either have a women's and LGBT section or no specified section at all. You must accomodate everyone in this aspect or no one. Try to make everyone happy or end up making no one happy. I think just the groups would be great. Women's groups, men's groups, LGBT groups, gamer groups, Christian groups. Much, much easier than making full sections for everyone.

    I've commented on this before and I believe the women's section doesn't allow for help from all avenues, which is why I made my journal in an age range instead. I think it is good that women have a place to go where they can receive support and avoid triggering the males of the forum, but I think it's more important that we are all in this together and learning to overcome our porn addiction. An LGBT sub-forum would further divide Nofap, just as a sub-forum for each religion would. Groups are precisely for this kind of thing, and I think it should be left to that.

    Also @alexander, I am one of the people who cannot see counters/signatures while on mobile Nofap. Any idea as to why that is?

    There are more and more women becoming interested in NoFap? Eventually there maybe another site just for them. Having no womens section is an interesting idea I think it should be tested. Maybe there could be a button to press if you only want female answers to your thread.

    My ideal vision is to keep our brand intact on one website. I think that women can help men and vice-versa. Religious people can help non-religious people. LGBT can help non-LGBT. We're all humans.

    Then I definitely think at least putting a women's section removal/LGBT section addition to a vote would suffice. I think I will do that now if it is okay. I'll post a link for the thread as soon as it's up.

    I don't post in women's often since there's more help in the regular section, it adds division to the forum but I suppose trying it out wouldn't hurt =)

    Hey, can we please keep "women's section" conversation in the thread that @Sun Bro posted? In this thread, I'm really hoping to focus more on design concerns. The forum sections have nothing to do with the upcoming redesign.

    You know hopefully we can have a better Panic button. Cause I thought you go there when you have the near irresitable urge to um, M or O or watch P and you go there and people counsel you and tell you "You can do it" and all that stuff and they try to deviate your mind from masterubaerjirating. But i tried it out to see and it was just picutres?

    That's why you need accountability partners on IM, or text, etc. What you're talking about, I guess, is an emergency hotline. Which isn't a bad idea, I would just expect that they don't have the resources to sustain one.

    hey alex, pointing out that you can multiquote would be nice! Also chatroom need to be rewritten, no one talks on it since it's always spammed by recent post that is totally unrelated to chatting IMHO. Make a separate section for recent posts.

    Female only website? NO JUST NO! Kill this idea with fire! Bury it deep underground at least 2000 km below the ground!
    Only female answers? NO! NO! NO! Kill this idea with fire! Bury it deep underground at least 600 km below the ground!
    And while we are on this discussion how about we make a button for the females to abolish all males from the website? That sure would be nice and fuzzy, right DannyCool?
    I think you really don't get the point here, or you just trolled me hard.

    I think the voting choices are a little biased, 2 choices should suffice indicating whenever to add the LGBT or removing the women's section which as far as I understand is why you started the thread in the first place.

    OK, I'll post an idea here, according to some the age sections of the diary has too many depressing entries so I was thinking maybe some tags will help categorise the diaries so if someone needs something it can get it whenever it's an uplifting story or wants to support someone trough theirs, I was thinking maybe tagging feels or simply whenever it's generally uplifting or need help, maybe even if it's eccentric or intriguing. The author could set the initial tags then the community could add or vote on which ones are the most accurate.
    It probably needs quite some programming and testing, but I'd be happy to assist if there's an acute need of that.
    There are the success stories but it's more personal if you can actually see the improvement from someone on a day to day basis.
