Trigger warnings

If your 'post' does include graphic or descriptive content or content that might be distressing to others, you should consider providing a 'trigger warning' in your post.

A trigger warning is a statement at the start of your post that alerts other users that the post may contain distressing content. The trigger warning should be positioned at the beginning of your post so readers can make an informed decision about whether or not they continue to read the post. It should also include a link or information on available support services.

If your post contains images, photos or videos, you should consider providing a trigger warning first and posting the content in the comment section or feed below so that other users can decide whether they want to see your post or not.

We've created some templates you might like to use in your videostory or post.
