Wordspace is the social network for Talking Minds. Here you can: join and/or create your own support/social groups (subject to user level); make new friends; accumulate user activity points that can be used to add extra features to your account; communicate with other members; upload photographs (appropriate); send gifts; and improve your user-level to gain more responsibility.
Features include:Viewpoint (Blog)
Viewpoint is a place where you can share your experiences, and comment on other members stories - sharing success and empowering each other. Viewpoint is designed to allow you to keep a journal, share your journey, and discuss anything that you wish - blogs do not necessarily have to be about mental health or substance misuse topics.
Every member can create their own blog, or comment on other members blogs (subject to privacy settings). Viewpoint is designed to allow members of the community to share their experiences, stories, and journals with other members; therefore,registered users can choose whether they only want certain people to see what they have written. For example, a member may only want people on their friends list to see what has been written.i-Sermo (Forum)
i-Sermo is your internet discussion forum for i-Society. You must be a registered member to be able to fully access this forum.User Activity Points
When using the Wordspace facilities, each member will earn activity points. For example, joining Wordspace automatically earns you 500 points, or commenting on someones profile earns you 10 points. These points can then be spent to add extra features to your account or purchase upgrades.User Level
Once registered, each member begins with a basic Wordspace account. Howvever, the more involvement you have, the more activity points you will gain. These points can then be spent to upgrade your account. With each level upgrade you will gain access to more features such as accessing the instant messaging system (available at Silver Surfer level).
Additionally, when you reach the Gold Bar level you can apply to be given moderator (i-Scribe) privileges. As an i-Scribe member you will be able to moderate the content such as that submitted on i-Sermo.
