Please can I repost to all a request from Fibromyalgia Action UK Vice Chair - Des Quinn
This is obviously a polarised debate and while the images are innocent and uplifting the admin team need to think about the site as a whole. The lack of a technical way of having image posts on a separate area means that a policy requires to be set that will be in place for the whole community. Remember however that the healthunlocked site has its own rules and procedures as well.
The technical solution not being possible means if we allow unlimited image pics then some people will be put out by them OR they may find that the get in the way of what they are coming here for. I think our primary reason for the HU forum is so that people with fibro to communicate and support each other through information and kind words. Facebook is a perfect place for images and videos but that also suffers a bit from noise getting in the way of the support but they can have separate pages that can be full of images or be focussed on having none at all.
Since there is no easy solution to this can I ask that people limit themselves to one image a day until the admin team decide on the best way forward. We have also made an approach to the HU admin team to see if they can advise on a course of action and a technical solution in the future.
We will hope to get something updated policy wise soon. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
