Byron: Beeurd yes that's what I'm doing to see 1st posts too, it doesn't happen all the time though, which is weird... Anyway, are there any moderators or "Staff" here who could address this? Feb 23, 2021 8:32:39 GMT
beeurd: I only just joined but I did notice that the first post keeps disappearing. I used the dev tools in Chrome to inspect the code and it seems the div or paragraph with the disappearing text has a "display: hidden" style added to it for some reason. Feb 6, 2021 17:12:46 GMT
suzeebluecheese: The issue with the hidden thread starting posts is not just with new posts pending approval. I checked old posts from last Summer. No content. I’d attach a screenshot to illustrate but there doesn’t seem to be a mechanism to do that. Feb 1, 2021 19:12:44 GMT
suzeebluecheese: Yes, Byron. I have the same problem of the first post on a thread disappearing. It’s a bit frustrating as I can see all the replies, just not the content they’re replying to. I use an iPad. Feb 1, 2021 15:41:14 GMT
easilydistracted: I think they may still be viewable on phones as well Jan 10, 2021 18:02:03 GMT
easilydistracted: Hi Byron, If it's a post by a new user then it's it's a quirk of the moderation system - posts by new users are hidden until approved by a moderator. You can still read it if you select page source and read the raw HTML code Jan 10, 2021 18:01:29 GMT
Byron: Also, while I'm here, does anyone else have a problem with the first message of a thread disappearing as the page loads? Jan 10, 2021 17:18:43 GMT
Byron: Hi Thor974, I've checked in on here most days and I think it just is that quiet. Plus that requires scrolling down! Jan 10, 2021 17:17:51 GMT
thor974: just thought id mention it. is it me or the system ???? Jan 9, 2021 22:44:20 GMT
thor974: Hi All, this shout box doesn't seem to be updating, last shout on here I have is Dec 12th 2020. Jan 9, 2021 22:43:47 GMT
Byron: Thanks Mollymoo, I mentioned psychiatry-uk and right to choose and things went pretty smoothly, sorry to hear your experience wasn't so good, you'd hope that they'd be aware of these things! Dec 12, 2020 15:43:47 GMT
Mollymoo: My Doctor doesn't seem to know about "right to choice". Everything is such a battle. It's so frustrating. Dec 7, 2020 13:12:25 GMT
Mollymoo: Wasteytime - I'm pleased to hear you had some luck with the "right to choice" and have your diagnosis. I just found out about this and I'm going to do the same. I'm looking at psychiatry-uk. Byron you should check out the "right to choice" maybe. Dec 6, 2020 23:29:11 GMT
wasteytime: I am a 54 year old woman, not sure how people will take my diagnosis yet Nov 28, 2020 8:14:05 GMT
wasteytime: Diagnosed two days ago, I didn’t have to wait, I did the right to choose and had an online appointment. It was scary but actually all good. I would recommend but won’t mention the company Nov 28, 2020 8:12:09 GMT
Byron: Mollymoo - Hi, am just about to (hopefully) start this journey myself. I understand it could be anything from a couple of months to about a year depending on where you live. Am seriously considering self funding to accelerate the process! (I'm 42) Nov 25, 2020 10:36:57 GMT
Byron: adhddara - Video doesn't seem to be working? Nov 25, 2020 10:34:47 GMT
Byron: Sandgazer - nice one, love the positiveness, agree 100% Nov 25, 2020 10:33:53 GMT
adhddara: hey guys check out my chat with my dad about my terrible adhd 20s which culminated in many rehabs and attempted suicide. then i got diagnosed and found the right meds and im leading a good path now. here is the link Nov 24, 2020 18:08:08 GMT
