Should we name these forums?
Or is the beyondblue forums clear enough, do you think?
Some suggestions that came through our blueVoices group
Be keen to hear your feedback below. Do any of the above
names take your fancy? Do you have a suggestion of your own? Do we need a name
I personally like this being known as "the Beyondblue forum". This way it's clear and is easily associated with beyondblue as an organisation. What does everyone else think?
Yeah, I tend to agree with SM.
Some of the names I have thought about include:
BB Conversations, or BB Discussions
But, then, if it's not broken, why fix it.
Beyond Blue Forums works well for me, but I also like Hideaways suggestions of BB Conversations or BB Discussions. I also like to think of the forums as a Community.
To me BB Collective sounds a bit too Communistic! Ha. Ha.
It is great people have made suggestions. Like Hideaway also mentioned, if it's not broken, why fix it.
Cheers from Mrs. Dools
Hi Chris B,
I also like to think of the forums as an online community.
The link to the sign up page says something about joining the Beyond Blue online community and this seems appropriate. When struggling with anxiety and depression as a sufferer or carer you can become quite cut off from the broader community and family and friends. Also a lot of support services come and go as funding becomes available or disappears.
I think it would be good (if there was a new name) to reflect this community appeal.
dear Chris, I too still like the site staying the same and known as 'Beyond Blue Forum', because the name has now become a huge awareness in the community for depression, everyone knows what it stands for.
Do you or the team have any suggestions or ideas. Thanks Geoff.
I like both bb Buzz and bb Neighbourhood but my suggestion is bb Crossroads, that is, if you decide to name it.
Yes, I thought the name "bb Crossroads" was an interesting one too. We all come here to meet at different crossroads, while at the same time we are at different crossroads in our lives. Thanks for your encouraging comments. I think I'm old enough to remember Crossroads, the soapie, but I don't. Wobbly walls! what have I missed out on?!
