Hi all,

For all of you looking for the "missing" posts about the debate sub-forum...I felt it deserved a thread of it's own...hope I haven't missed anything. If I have, just let me know!

Just want to say this forum is great! I do get overwhelmed on occasion, but its ok. Better then getting bored. And isnt getting overwhelmed inherant with us anyway.

The more I am here, and the more I learn how to navigate this site, the easier it is to work with.

Thank you Andrew and Ian, I dont know what I would have done without this place!

Very great forums, 2 whishs

I like vey much all the informations posted here.

The various opinions make the wealth of these forums.

There just 2 things i would like see :

First you should really find a way to organize some very very long subjects ( like add is history... ). When a subject has 10 or more pages it s too difficult to follow and to contribute without repeat someone else contributions.
May be you could find a way to index such subject instead of letting the posts be in chronological order. For example a tree interface ( like the file explorer ) could be a great help.

Secondly it would be nice if someone ( myself ) can post a general interrogation to obtain some opinion on his posts. Lately i post less and less as i have see that my contributions causes no reactions, have no answers.
Maybe i spell too bad, sometime i fear that my post are taken for trolls, ... well i don't know..

As a moderator I am always willing to help you edit and correct spellings in your posts before you post them. I would only think of doing it if you came to me with your blessing first, otherwise, I feel its intrusive and rude.

When I read a post with more then two pages, I pull up a blank notebook page and use it as a reference...quote certain questions or quote certain statements I'd like to comment on and then when its time for me to make my post I press the reply button so that my post has more options for quotes, etc. Do you think this may work for you?

good luck
Cherity

p.s. you could be taken for far worse then a troll at least they are adorable.

Never did I dream that I would join or even enjoy an internet community. But this has been an amazing experience.
I came across this delightful forum while I was particulary down and confused. Finding out about your adhd as an adult creates all sorts of questions and new thought processes...emotions and inner conflict.
To have a place to air your ups and downs, a group of folks basically going through a most similar experience, well, this group is invaluable to me. I wouldn't change a thing.
Thank you everyone from the bottom of my heart <3

Wow, xav!!!

thanks for these gret ideas. i have no idea how to implement the first idea, or, if it's even possible. I agree though, when a topic runs 10 pages or longer, it tends to take on a life of it's own. That's a tough one because, as a moderator, when a topic veers off from the original topic, it's sometimes still ties in, albeit somewhat loosely. so, what to do with it, especially when it starts to generate responses that pertain to the original post. when a response post sparks responses of it's own, pages add up, however, that's when some the most interesting and genuine conversations turn up. It also makes it hard to follow a thread if you are starting on page 10 ....

when threads get that long, i wonder if a good way to break them up a bit would be chronologically?

another thought just occured to me. i'm an innatentive type ADDer -- organizing is *not* my strength!!! so, it's no wonder i'm having trouble with seeing a good way to organize long threads. i agree though with your assesment of the problem.

Quote:

i'm not sure what you mean??? i've seen some people respond to each response within the thread they start. it's a nice way to let people that you appreciate them taking the time they took to write a response. though most times, i respond when i identify a similar experience to the one posted. responding itself is its own reward because i get to explore the issue and the impact it has in my own life.

i'm ramblin' and i'll stop now. but thanks for your thoughts. as a new mod, it gives me good information to chew on!!!

Thanks again, xav,

Wheezie

Idea for a new private forum.

I love this forum and and the people who have been so wonderful and kind. Even those who are not always kind but honest. There is nothing really that I would change but I would like to see one thing added one day and that is a private gays, lesbians and bisexuals with ADD forum. I think it would take off but then again,, I could be wrong who knows. Just a thought.

Hey xav, you can change the way you view a thread by clicking on the "DISPLAY MODES" button at the top right hand corner of the thread, and selecting one of the other display modes.

You can also make this permanent by going to your user CP, Edit Options, Thread Display Options.

Hope this helps!

Andrew

Perhaps you could start a thread in one of sections of the forums, and if there's significant interest, we might consider acting upon your suggestion!

I thinks it's great. I've been involved in other Forums that felt uncomfortable to me, so I left.
In here, there's every possible perspective and viewpoint imaginable on or about ADHD. More importantly, there's a concerted effort to try and maintain civility as well as accuracy.

I know that it isn't exactly the samething but I would hope that our members would treat you and your relationship with the same care and respect that they would a heterosexual relationship.

IF you are in need of support at the moment then please by all means make your post. The nice thing about the forums is that we don't see color, gender, sexual orientation, disabilities. What we do see are people who are experiancing a lot of the same issues we ourselves are faced with every day. Most members come here after being tired of being judged harshly and the last thing they would do is judge another. We have good and kind members who know that when your backs against the wall-strength lies in numbers.
