Just a quick note to our RHUers who visit all of our worlds:
We have a Twitter Account, a secret facebook group (in order to join, you must find the page on the site that gives you directions on how to apply), and we have this Main Site.
There seems to be some confusion among our RHUers as to how these worlds interact.
Twitter shares the Site stories, so if you want to have updates every time a story or picture posts, please consider following our Tweets! (And if you re-tweet some of the best stories, you'd make us happy!)
RHU Facebook is a place to share your woes and get instant feedback. We also find stories there and share them to this site, with the Original Poster's permission.
RHU Main Site is where our greatest focus lies. We find and share all kinds of stories, laughs and pictures here. Here is where you can find monthly themes, stories that are shared, and advice can be doled out in complete confidentiality.
The confusion seems to lie in the difference between our Facebook Group and our Main Site. The breakdown is actually simple.
Our Facebook group, for all intents and purposes, is still Facebook. Drama, flame wars, and butthurt is always a risk, and it DOES crop up sometimes and run amok before the moderators can step in and quench it. We do our best, but we have had narcs (people who will take your venting straight to your boss and tell on you) and trolls in Facebook. We try to get rid of them as we find them, but there is no guarantee that they are ever completely gone. It is a problem we are continuing to struggle with.
If you were to choose, please choose our Main Site and do not bother with Facebook. Send your stories to our RHU email: [email protected] and remove anything from your story that would identify you in order to be completely anonymous. Facebook is, despite our best efforts, an "at your own risk" place.
Furthermore, our Facebook group has had stumbling blocks. We had to revamp how things were handled, because some folks were attacked, and subsequently removed (wrongly or rightly) and there are still bruised feelings all around. Our RHU site is still anonymous, and if you feel you were wronged in the group, please consider being part of the main site only. Change your nickname, share your stories.
The Facebook group gives us stories; it does not receive much benefit from the site. It is an entirely different world with different rules, and to some degree, a different culture.
There are a very few who truly did something wrong, and in those cases Freddy Himself had to step in. They have been dealt with.
Remember, RHU is meant to be a place where you are safe and supported. You can vent about your job, share pictures of silly things you find in the retail world, or dispense advice to those who need to know how to handle something in their workplace. We are LGBT(etc) friendly. Personal attacks and trolls get the boot.
