ADHD debates (private)

I noticed that one of the threads in the Adult ADHD forum got moved to the ADHD debates (private) forum.

Why does this happen? Is it the original OP that makes a request to have it moved or did an administrator just decide to do this.

I'm noticing I can't access the thread anymore without a password which I don't seem to have. I'm wondering if this was done to kick out some people from the conversation (maybe I'm one of them lol though I don't think I said anything outside what's allowed).

Re: ADHD debates (private)

No - threads moved there are not to kick any members out of the conversation.

When threads start getting into politics, religion, and "hot topics" and such - they may be moved into Private Debates as to not violate forum guidelines.

Please message a Super mod if you would like access to the private debates forum.

Re: ADHD debates (private)

I was wondering the same thing.

How do I find out who the super mods are?

Er. Never mind. Just found out.

Thanks Bellavita. Yeah, I'm too lazy to message a supermod lol. Amazing how just one extra step is enough to deter my interest.

Private forum sounds like a good practice though.

Re: ADHD debates (private)

Btw is there room to debate this policy? It's more than a little frustrating being shut out of a conversation I was really interested in and put effort into. Feels a bit punitive.

Seems like if a thread is going to be suddenly moved, maybe all those who've already taken part in it could at least be given temporary access to that thread?

Re: ADHD debates (private)

On second thoughts, I think I've lost interest too.

I'm not up for putting in effort into things that are this badly mishandled at the end of a long day, and my temper is shorter than I'd like when it comes to this kind of thing. So I'll just go back to lurking.

Whatever this policy is meant to do, it might be worth considering that it has a deterrent effect on users who aren't already strongly integrated into the forum community. Seems like the final effects are cliquish.

I remember vaguely that's usually how it s being done with threads moved to debates. The active participants of the thread were informed that the thread has been moved to debates and, I think, given the password. If I remember right. Didn't happen this time though. Anyway, the thread has died a pretty quick death in the debate section.

Re: ADHD debates (private)

I vote for debating this policy, like another member mentioned. No disrespect to the mods, but it seems this move to a passworded subforum makes it more cumbersome than it needs to be.

Re: ADHD debates (private)

I agree with you hypoxia, it took a lot for me to muster up sustained attention to read and reply on that thread.

What strikes me is that I've seen bigger and more heated debates than that as well as utter garbage being let slide but something I think that was being debated reasonably was made private

Re: ADHD debates (private)

As a former moderator, I always messaged all active participants with a link to the thread when I moved a thread to debates, and told them they are welcome to message a supermod for the password. I'm not sure why this did not occur in this case.

yes, thats how it usually happens. this time it seemed rather abrupt and strange.

to newer members who said they found this frustrating, i just want to point out this isn't usually how it happens. normally we get a heads up along with the password. im not sure if this case was handled different deliberately.

Re: ADHD debates (private)

Sometimes just pushing a different set of buttons is too much for me.

Re: ADHD debates (private)

[color="SeaGreen"]1) Just a gentle reminder that the majority of us (moderators included) are human beings and therefore imperfect. A lot of us also have ADHD or similar diagnoses. Sometimes things fall through the cracks. We try to communicate our intentions/reasoning with members when appropriate. Sometimes we fall down. Sorry.

2) Debates is an intentionally separate place from the rest of the forum; its purpose is to allow for civil discourse on subjects that aren't allowed in the open forum (including politics and religion). Usually a thread gets moved there if someone starts to respond and then says "I'd love to answer that, but I can't say xxxx without bringing up a forbidden topic."

3) If a thread is moved and you no longer have access to it, please don't hesitate to ask us what's up. We move threads for all sorts of reasons (including simply making a mistake). We may not be able to spell out the details, but we will let you know as much as we can.

Thanks,

Tyger

Re: ADHD debates (private)

Well, maybe I could handle a few more buttons after all. What is the password?

Re: ADHD debates (private)

Little Missy, check your PMs.

If you need a password for a private section, it's best to start by PMing the person in orange who's associated with the forum in question (for debates that would be mead823 or sarek). If you see that any one of us oranges is online, though, don't hesitate to PM any of us. We'll be happy to help you out.
