Alan,

Welcome to hadit. This is going to be a little complicated (not bad), but I will give it my best shot.

1. Go to the Forum that you would like (Veterans Affairs Claims and Benefits Research, Success Stories, etc.)

2. Go to the top of the forum page.

3. There is a little box called --NewTopic--

4. Select --NewTopic--

5. A box will appear.... Write the question or statement that you would like in the box.

6. Go directly below the box, a few inches, and select Preview Post. Be sure the Post is the way that you want, and then you can hit the Add Reply button, which is next to the Preview Post button when you are finished.

TO Reply:

1. Go to the Forum that you would like (Veterans Affairs Claims and Benefits Research, Success Stories, etc.)

2. Enter the topic you would like

3. At the top of the page there will be a Add Reply button.

4. Select this Add Reply button.

5. A box will appear.... Write the question or statement that you would like in the box.

6. Go directly below the box, a few inches, and select Preview Post. Be sure the Post is the way that you want, and then you can hit the Add Reply button, which is next to the Preview Post button when you are finished.

TO SORT BY YOUR OWN MOST CURRENT POST:

1. Go to the Forum that you would like, remembering which forum that you posted in.

2. Scroll down to the bottom of the page.

3. In the lower right hand corner there are three four little boxes. Go to the Topics box

4. Select the little arrow in the right side of the topics box look down the list and select Topics: I started or Topics: I Replied.

5. When your choice is highlighted hit the go button, and your topics will line up with your newest post or reply at the top.

TO SORT WITH MOST CURRENT TOPICS REPLIES FIRST:

1. Go to the Forum that you would like, remembering which forum that you posted in.

2. Scroll down to the bottom of the page.

3. Select and Pick Z-A and click-go... the topics will appear as the most current at the top.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
     
    Note:
     
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
