    Which do you prefer? Which do you frequent more?
    Why do you find one more helpful than the other etc.

    They both have their good and bad points.
    I prefer the forum, no pressure to think fast and you can go straight to the sections you know about.

    I don't think I've ever been into chat since joining SF. I guess a lot of the new members seem to have had such bad experiences in it, that I'm a little discouraged.

    The forum is more helpful I think.
    Chat can bring your mood up but when you need help I usually come to the forum. Unless I'm in a crisis I'll go into triggering.

    I spend the most time up here on the chat. But I don't mind posting on the forums but... Just that I'm not always depressed when I come here so most of the posts here don't really interest me.:eek:hmy:

    i freequent chat more, but i prefer the forum as i will talk there more than in chat, chat i use more so as a social thing than a help me thing. tho i help other people in chat. so pros and cons for both

    I find the forum easier, but I prefer chatting although i find it extrememly hard to keep a convo. I want to be social

    i prefer the forum

    i have never been 'inside' a chat room.
    not sure how all that works, but to be honest, not interested in doing it.

    came here some months ago for support, now i don't need support for myself, but i come here to check on much-loved friends and for some company.

    nice thread, interesting poll results so far - quite even. .. . .

    Chat when it's busy because other people being social makes me feel better and it means I can talk if I need to and get a quick response. I find forums daunting.

    Forum for sure. Chat isn't a very...predictable people not taking their triggering subjects to the designated room, arguments starting, supposed exclusive groups...etc...:unsure:

    both for me depending on how I am at the moment. I've gotten a lot of help in forum but also in chat in a different way I guess.

    I can't access chat. So... Yeah.

    The only reason I still come is that I have no self-respect and I'm terribly lonely.

    Forum, I havent really been in the chat room, because I hardly have anything to talk to my family so I doubt I can hold a decent conversation with people in a chat room. Lol

    Usually get a lot more out of the forums, both when I need help and when I see people in need of help. Chat is o.k. for light relief.

    Forum because I don't type fast enough to keep up with things in chat.
