And what would you do with that extra time that's better than hanging out with
us over here?



If you feel someone has judged or criticized you, take a moment to think
about whether that's the norm here or if it was a drive-by posting or just
one person who may have been having a bad day.
(I don't think it's the norm)

Re: What's your honest opinion of the ADD Forums?

I know it's a super well known issue...I'm just adding my own frustrations to the fact that...

addforums.com does not work. It really bugs me that if I tell someone about this site and call it addforums...they'll likely visit this front page. And it's not like that page gives any easy to find links to redirect them to addforums.com/forums or something.

It's just frustrating. But I know you know it's frustrating lol...so I don't know why I feel the need to add my own opinion here.

I encourage more people to donate. I am not a moderator nor affiliated with the site in any way, but I think it is productive enough to do so

Re: What's your honest opinion of the ADD Forums?

I tried to donate once and something was weird with how it was going through. I guess if the improvements (that David has mentioned that will be made in the past) were to come to fruition I would be more inclined to try donating again. Every so often he posts about how he is on the cusp of making awesome changes, and makes a post about it, and then he disappears again. I would totally donate regularly if he followed through but his lack of communication/promised changes never seem to happen, along with basic site fixes so I am still hesitant for now

Re: What's your honest opinion of the ADD Forums?

Got to be honest, I find it kind of well.... boring on here. I suppose this place doesn't exist for my own amusement, but everything just seems very slow moving. I wish there were more people on here from around my own area that I could perhaps develop friendships with, but it never happens.

Most members (and mods) are not professionals and members cannot claim to be professionals because we have no way of checking the credentials of anyone and it could be dangerous, particularly if a member takes another member's post as professional advice and harm then comes to them because of what they read on the forum.

Of course everyone is not a "professional," but everyone can afford another person a sense of respect and decorum

Re: What's your honest opinion of the ADD Forums?

It's great but I wish it offered opportunity for more direct communication and a sense of group/with greater depth of support and exchange of communication. Please feel free to send me private messages about any ADD topic

Re: What's your honest opinion of the ADD Forums?

Not sufficiently interactive or supportive. Also, there are some very nebulous and arbitrary rules regarding admission to private forums. I've only been a member since 11/17/17 but since then I've contributed 85 posts, most of which were responses to questions about ADD experiences and experience with taking ADD meds and their side effects. Despite that I'm told I can't access private forums because that would 'violate the privacy of other members.' This site does not meet my needs, and I find myself contributing a lot more than I am benefiting. I think I am done with this site

You can access the private debate forums.

If there are rules about how long one must be a member or how many posts
one must make before being allowed access to the private/debate forums,
I'm not aware of those rules.

I thought you simply contacted a super moderator for the password.
That's what it says in the sticky post on the private/debates subforum.
http://www.addforums.com/forums/anno...php?f=277&a=93
Sometimes it takes a little digging for the right information, but it's there.
Or simply contact any of the mods to ask for help or information.
