  • Hello Guest,

    Another update, OFCOM has reached out directly. We have made the decision to make all content unavailable in the UK for the time being. People from the UK will still be allowed to register, but content that violates the Online Safety Bill will not be viewable to the public. This officially puts us in compliance with the Onlien Safety Bill.

    We would highly recommend that all users from the UK get some sort of VPN, and you should petition your lawmakers to let them know how you feel about this piece of draconian legislation.

Welcome to the forum guide for Sanctioned Suicide

This thread is an unofficial forum guide. It covers a variety of topics. It was put together by selected members of the community. Please take some time and read this thread before posting. It exists to give you an understanding about the site, forum functionality, and a guide to creating quality threads and posts.

Before reading further...

You MUST read the rules and FAQ, linked in your welcome PM, or above in the navigation bar. You will be banned without hesitation if you break the rules!


Mission Statements

Sanctioned Suicide is a forum that allows self-expression. Here you can find emotional support, and talk with like-minded individuals.
Sanctioned Suicide is a forum to discuss mental illness and suicide, as well as the moral and ethical implications of the act itself.

Currently, we have 10 prefixes. Each prefix has a different meaning. When you select a prefix, it will show next to your thread's title on the forum. While the use of prefixes is not required, it makes your thread more visible and easier to understand for users browsing the forum.

Story - For telling a story.
Venting - For venting.
Help - For asking for help.
Discussion - For Discussion
News - For posting News and articles.
NSFW - For posting NSFW, nothing hardcore please.
Resources - For resources
Recovery - For recovery
Games - For forum games.
No Prefix - If you don't feel the need for one.

You'll notice that not a lot of detail was put into describing what the prefixes represent. The prefixes mean what they say. We want users to pick and choose which one they feel would best represent their thread, as sometimes someone might be telling a story, but also venting. Or someone might be asking for help, but might be venting. There is not a strict adherence, but these prefixes serve as a guide for thread creators to use. You can always select 'No Prefix.'

What is the PPH

The ONLINE (AND PRINT) Peaceful Pill Handbook is series a of books to provide research and information on voluntary euthanasia and assisted suicide for the elderly, those who are seriously ill & their family/ friends.

Quality Posting and Etiquette

Aside from our rules about respect, we have guidelines about posting quality and etiquette.

Creating a thread

When creating a thread please ensure that the thread has discussion value, especially in the Sanctioned Suicide forum. Our rules about low effort and low quality threads exist to ensure that only threads that meet a certain quality will be posted.
Threads that lack discussion value should not be posted. When creating a thread in the Sanctioned Suicide forum, please ensure that the created thread has a minimum of two sentences. While moderators will not necessarily delete a thread in the Sanctioned Suicide forum for having a OP of less than two sentences, it is typically frowned upon.

The off topic forum is more laid back, it would be alright if OP has just one sentence, as long as there is discussion value.


When responding to a thread, please ensure that your post offers a substantive and quality reply. Please ensure that you read the original post in the thread before replying. One word or one image replies (Unless designated as a forum game) are frowned upon, and will nearly always be deleted if posted in Sanctioned Suicide. There is no set minimum for a reply in off topic, so as long as the response is appropriate for the thread.


Often times, topics of a controversial nature are posted on this website. The expectation here is for constructive criticism or a fair spirited debate. As per our rules, we do not allow insulting, bullying or harassment. Personal attacks, hostilities, and ad hominem responses will be deleted, with warnings issued depending on severity.


Topic and tone is going to naturally deviate around in a thread from what was originally posted. This should happen organically. A thread is derailed when the topic and tone suddenly change. Derailing typically happens as a result of loss of civility in a thread or lack of quality or substantive posting.

Flame Wars

Flame wars are fights in threads that are the result of incivility. If you get into a heated argument with a user, and the argument becomes uncivil, if you further argue, you may receive a warning as well. The best option for addressing these issues is to report posts that violate our rules, not reply to them, and ignore the user(s) if they are attacking you.

Post Formatting

I have listed links for post formatting. If you are new to posting online, reading these will help you.

- Quality Posting Guide


If at any time you see content that violates our rules, please report the post. Moderators check reported content. Reporting content is the fastest way to have it viewed and addressed by a moderator. All reports are anonymous.

Following and Ignoring Users

When you click on a users profile, you'll see next to each other. Follow and Ignore. The ignore feature is our blocking feature.


By clicking follow the user will receive a notification that you are following them. By following a user you will receive a notification of any threads or posts they create.


By clicking the ignore button, you will no longer see posts that the user creates. You will still see their threads, however.

Watched Forums and Watched Threads

The Watched Forum and Watched Threads buttons allow you to see threads that you are actively apart of.

Watched Forums

Clicking on one of the forums, you'll see the 'Watch Forum' button. Clicking that will enable you to receive notifications about new posts and threads in the forum. If you have this enabled, clicking on Watched Forum will give you the ability to personalize your settings, such as if you want to receive email notifications, alerts, and if you'd like to stop receiving notifications.

Watched Threads

Any sort of threads that you create or reply too will pop up here. You will have the same ability by clicking this button to customize your notifications. If you see a thread that you like but don't feel like posting on it, at the time of the thread, just above the OP, you can click the 'Watch Thread.' This will add it to your watched threads.

Disciplinary Actions

When a user violates our rules, moderators will discipline the user. There is some terminology for discipline, as well as some disciplinary actions that may be taken against rule breakers.

Warning - Warnings range from 10%-99%, varying on severity. Moderators have discretion in their choice of what percentage to give a warning. Once a user reaches 100% warning level, they will be banned.

No PMs - Staff has the right to take away a user's PMs if they repeatedly send messages that violate our rules.

Threads for new users

Please be sure to read the OP before posting.
