How to post in menstrual_cups forum?

I just joined livejournal to post a question to the menstrual cup community, but the only option for posting I get is to post to myself? How do I get my question in the right forum?

Thanks.

Hi! I put up a post yesterday about a group order to Femininewear. Is it okay for me to re-post this a few times over the next two weeks to keep it fresh on the list? I'll stay within the limit of two posts per week. - Katie

Sure, I don't have a problem with your reposting it a couple of times as long as you stay under the post limit.
But use your judgment...if it's been a slow week, maybe hold off on reposting it if it hasn't been pushed too far down the page.

posting no more than twice a week?

Does the rule about posting no more than twice a week only apply to an original post or does that also apply to replying to other people's posts? Don't wanna break the rules.

How to post?

Hi all :)
I'm new to using a menstrual cup and new to this site, just joined yesterday after reading your site for a few days and would like to ask a question about cups, but I can't see how to make a post. It's usually really obvious on other forums so I guess I'm just not seeing it. Help?

Re: How to post?

One way you can post is go to your LJ home page and go to the "communities" menu and select "post an entry." When you get to the posting page, make sure you select menstrual_cups so that you don't post to your own journal by mistake.

Re-usable Insteads?

Hi,
I was just wondering if there is another alternative that works like Instead? Due to the heaviness of my period the other cups make me a lot more tender as I get pretty swollen. Also the other ones have leaked through the holes or shift and leak when I play sports and it's very hard to get to a bathroom in time. :( Please tell me someone had made a reusable version of Instead. I like instead a fair bit, but it isn't very environmentally friendly.

This is the sort of question that should be posted in the community proper. If you need help joining and posting, let us know!

Posting more than twice a week?

Hi ladies
Is it ok to post comments more than twice a week? Does the twice a week rule only apply to new threads or does it apply to comments too? Thanks.

Re: Posting more than twice a week?

Comment all you like (within reason, of course)! The twice-a-week rule applies to new posts only.

Group living tag?

Hi,
I was thinking it might be useful to add a "group living" tag. Unless we already have something like that? We get a lot of people asking questions about how to change a cup in dorms, etc...

Re: Group living tag?

I put up a dorms tag - the friends & family tag has been used a lot for other group living situations, so I think that should cover it. :)

Selling tag?

Hi Ladies
Is there a tag for Selling a cup? I can't find one. If there is one I'd appreciate someone showing me where! Thanks.

I'm sorry, I know this is stupid, but I can't seem to find where I should click to start a new thread on the mainpage. I'm sure I'm just missing it, but could someone point it out to me? (I have used it before, but I can't remember.. sorry.)

From the main LiveJournal page, click "Post". Under "Post to," select "menstrual_cups" Write your entry and click the "Post to menstrual_cups" button. Voila! :)

Leak/Overflow with Heavy Cycle

Hello Ladies,

The Diva cup was my 1st cup of this type and I used it last month on vacation. I have a very,very heavy flow. I had 1 overflow problem(after 4 hours on my heavy day) and it was not much. I used a overnight pad during the day as habit and cause I was not sure about using the cup this 1st time.

For the small leak I found it helpful to go to the ladies room and release some suction of the cup and let it expel whatever was in there(at the full) till I got back to my Hotel and could fully remove,clean and reinsert. For the next 2 hours till I got back to the Hotel I was fine.

It was a little messy but I didn't feel ready to empty at this time. This was a technique I also used with the Instead cup. I gave up on those due to my heavy flow and that it would not stay put. Has anyone else tried this???

My cycle is about to start and I will see it this technique will work this time around. Good Luck Ladies and thanks for all the good advice.

Thanks!

Friends pages?

If somebody has added the menstrual cup community to their friends will they get our journal entries on their friends page automatically? I just looked at my friends page and my own journal entry has come up on it? I don't want my journal entries on cup users pages as it won't always be about cups. So I am seeing this because it's my own journal or is everybody whose a friend of the cup community seeing it on theirs? I hope you understand what I mean, I'm new to LJ and I find it really complicated compared to other forums. Sorry if this is rambling.

Re: Friends pages?

Nope...adding the community to your friends list does not place your personal entries on cup user's friend pages. Nor does it give members access to your posts that you label friends-only. When you write an entry, just make sure you are posting it in the right place by selecting either your own journal or a community from the drop-down box.
I don't see any personal entries on the menstrual_cup page, so all seems well. :)

Someone asked a question related to abortion and I think moon_magick78 is trying to start a debate: http://community.livejournal.com/menstrual_cups/1950603.html. She's also broken the 2 posts a week rule for the past 2 weeks at least, though at least one (in which she argued against the basic rules of the community) was deleted for being off-topic (not to mention that it also contained a drama-tastic "I hate you all and will never be a part of your horrible community again" sort of thing). It'd be cool if the mods defused this before it becomes something cruel to the O.P., who is by no means inviting drama.

Is it against the LJ rules for a minor to ask for people to send them mail? I mean, a self-proclaimed 15-year-old is asking people to send her things that have been in other peoples' vaginas. . . not to mention she's going to have to give out personal information like her address online. It sounds sketchy, and I wouldn't want the community (or the kid) to get in trouble for it. Here's the post: http://community.livejournal.com/menstrual_cups/1961757.html.

Moderators, femininewear always has a "signature" which contains links to her website. Does this count as advertising / spam that we wouldn't want in this community? I personally find it irritating and I'd prefer not having those links on her posts/comments.

Thanks.

I concur. Plus, having it in every comment seems a bit much.
