Word limit or topic not allowed?

Hi, I've been trying to post a thread in the parenting forum and keep getting redirected. I posted another thread in that forum and it worked just fine but this particular one will not post.

Is there a character limit? I think it's about 500 words.

I see that the only banned topics are religion and politics, completely justified, but this isn't about either of those.

Advice?

Re: Word limit or topic not allowed?

It sounds like there may be a glitch somewhere, I'm sure the other mods (who are more tech savvy than me) will be along shortly to find out for you what's going on Can you show us what message you're getting when you try to post the thread and what the thread contents are? That way the tech savvy of us will be able to see exactly what's going on

Re: Word limit or topic not allowed?

Thank you.

This is what I was trying to post....


Does anyone have first-hand knowledge on whether ADHD affects reaction time in sports? I've read numerous articles with just a bit of info in each but haven't found any conclusive or extensive studies so I thought I'd ask here.

My 15yo daughter plays volleyball. She's very energetic, very fast - faster than most, and could be at a higher level. But her reaction time is slower than other girls.

Her game knowledge is fantastic. She's able to zone in on the court and knows exactly where to be and what to do at all times. But since her reaction time is slower, she starts moving later than other girls. It makes her either look slow or like she doesn't know what she's doing. Also, if anything unexpected happens it takes her a second longer to know how to react than others.


We're trying to determine if this is an ADHD thing or just her. We’re also trying to determine whether her ADHD meds make it worse.

She’s trying ideas her coach gave her, but it's a slow process and at 15 she's at the age where she'll be cut soon if she doesn't step up her game. The coach believes she thinks too much before moving. Not sure what she can do about that.

Are there any parents, or athletes, with experience about this? If so, have you tried anything that worked?

Thanks



And this is the error I keep getting (I've tried posting a few times over the last few days)...

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 176160768 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 8388608 bytes) in /home/addforum/public_html/forums/includes/functions_search.php on line 197

Re: Word limit or topic not allowed?

Looks like the same error I got when trying to post in chit chat, what I had to do was post my post in an existing thread then ask a super to move it into it's own thread

Or if you don't want to wait for a super to become available, you can post it in a section I moderate and I'd be happy to move it for you, if you'd prefer?

It's nothing you did, the forum software gets itself confused at times is my understanding

Try General ADD Talk, see if you get the same thing there, I can move it from there or medications section, if not you'll have to wait for a super to come and move your post out of here into general parenting for you

Fortune's online as well so I'll alert her to this thread, maybe she'll be happy to move your post for you

Re: Word limit or topic not allowed?

Try rewriting your post from scratch using the forum software rather than writing it in a word processor. I don't know if that will work, but your post has a lot of excess code from a word processor and that might be causing the problem.

Re: Word limit or topic not allowed?

If you're using a word processor and don't want to type everything out again. Copy and paste it into notepad. This will remove all coded formatting, then copy and paste it from notepad onto the site.

Re: Word limit or topic not allowed?

Hold up -- you may not have to!

I was able to copy your post from here to its own thread in the General Parenting forum:
http://www.addforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=183961

...Let me just strip out the extraneous commentary on the creaky forum and clean it up, and then you can go from there.

Update: OK...I could copy the thread, but now it's stuck with the silly title I gave it while I was copying it. I tried to change it to "ADHD and reaction time in sports", but then I also got an error message. Definitely forum gremlins at work!

People should feel free to try to reply there anyway -- and if it doesn't work, please report back in this thread!

Yeah, it's weird that it won't let us change the topic.
