    A quick primer on making the most of our new discussion forums:

    1. The forums are divided up into 5 main areas, each of which has topic-based sections within:

    2. Before posting, search the forums to find existing discussions by using the search field in the top right corner of the Forums homepage

    3. Create a new thread in the most appropriate section of a forum by using the ‘Create New Topic’ fields at the bottom of that section page (for example, Behavior & Discipline within For Parents, or Getting Things Done within For Adults). Click the checkbox within ‘Create New Topic’ if you wish to be notified of replies

    4. Reply to any thread by using the ‘Reply to’ fields at the bottom of the thread; click the checkbox there if you wish to be notified of replies

    5. Receive email notifications of new threads within a forum or specific section of a forum by clicking the Subscribe link in the top right corner of that forum/section page

    6. Click ‘My Profile’ in the site header and then ‘Edit My Profile’ to update your Display Name or bio

    7. Want to see a new forum or section added? Email us at customerservice@additudemag.com

    8. Enjoy, connect, learn!

    Hi Penny:

    How do I remove my own response post to someone else’s question that I wrote a week ago?
    I’m feeling that I revealed way too much about my personal life/marriage and it’s also way too long. I would like to remove my entire post. Can you advise? It’s the last post to the question about receiving more affection from a spouse.

    Thank you!

      You should see a link to Trash at the top right of the comment window. I think I found it and deleted it for you.

    Hi, thank you for the info. I haven’t been here for a while – it looks as though things have changed. Change is often good (congrats on the fresh start) but also sometimes frustrating. 😉 My user name is still good but the forum looks completely different, I see none of my posts or those I’d read before that had info/advice important to me, and I don’t see other members here I used to see.

    I’m lost and confused. Where can I find the old posts/info?

    Thank you. 🙂

      The new forum started in June. The posts on ADDconnect prior to that were not carried over to the new forum here. Please feel free to start new threads and discussions.

      Hi,

      I have the same notice at the bottom of the page, is there a wait period from when we first register on additudemag.com to when we’re allowed to start threads?

      Thanks,

      Hello,
      When you log in and scroll all the way to the bottom of https://www.additudemag.com/forums/forum/parenting-adhd-kids/, do you see a section titled “Create a New Topic…”? If not, could you please tell me what error message you see at the bottom of this page?
      Thank you!

      Yes I do see it there.

      But how do I create a new topic not pertaining to that particular forum?

    I just tried creating a new thread for the first time and it didn’t show up. Any ideas on why?

    Thanks.

      It likely got stuck in the spam filter, especially if there was a link in it. I’ve just cleared the pending and spam topics, so it should be posted now.

    Hello,

    I was participated in the old forum a few years back. I have returned and setup a new account, slowly getting back into nagging with the forum. I am not ready to post a topic yet, but soon, how do I go about it? I could not see the option on my page. I have started replying to threads that interest me, some replies have posted, and others not yet. Let me know if there are any issues with my replies.

    Thanks

      If it doesn’t post right away, it’s because the spam filter caught it for some reason. Those that aren’t spam are usually approved and posted within 24-48 hours. I did just approve at least two of yours this morning. 🙂

    Hello, My email comes up (or the first part of it) when I participate in a forum. I’d like to change this to a first name or pseudo. How do you do this?

      When you’re signed in, click Account/My Profile at the top of the page. Then click Edit My Profile on the left-hand side. That will allow you to update your username.

    Dear ADDitude Team,

    I created a post for the “Getting Things Done” Forum on September 25, 2018 at 6:03 am ( Post #100055).
    The post has not been published yet. It currently states: “Awaiting moderation.”
    Can you tell me when the post will be published?
    Many thanks for your help.
    Greetings from Germany

    I cannot make a new thread.
    Down where it says to make a new thread there is a message that says You cannot make a new thread.
    I joined today.
    At what point am I allowed to make a new thread?

    EDIT: Nevermind, I figured it out.
    It was saying I cannot make a new TOPIC.
    Once I am in the topic I can make a new thread
