    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?”

    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

Advice For Newbees


Berta

Question

I have noticed lately that new threads are being opened for questions about posts that have been started in other threads.....and/or in other forums here.

I usually search for the older posts because I don't remember all of the issues when a new question pops up, without explaining the background info.

I am not willing to do that anymore. It takes too much time.

If you make a post, please try to get back to the original post, with additional questions.

If you cant remember where the original post was, go to your profile and under posts it will pop up and you can click on it and continue the original thread.

Thanks

Is this a matter of cross posting, or just not searching old threads? For my work search for prior ticketed deficiencies we have a small field underneath where we can type stream of conciousness words like 'software engine; menu items;documentation......." etc that helps the forum group similar things like it together within a greater general topic. Does this form have 'tagging' as an option that could be enabled?

Just a thought from your friendly neighborhood programmer.

I think that feature is here but ,for me, I like to read a new post, that is in the same thread, for the same thing.

Some of the threads here go back many years,with updates from time to time.

Berta:

I see that you're a longtime contributor to Hadit.com. Thanks for the very good advice and it makes sense to leverage the work that has already been done by others in this forum. I try to search before I ask a question but need to be better at it... Anyway, I have what is supposed to be my final C&P exams tommorrow and have to drive 3 hours to get them done so hopefully I'll get my claim resolved in a reasonable time frame after that? I'm generally very optomistic, but after some of my own recent experiences with the claims processes, I've changed that now to be "causiously optomistic" after all of the stories I read at Hadit.com. I know they are as unique and varied as the person who makes the claims and the opinions that they express, so we'll see? Anyway, thanks for all of your help and contributions to folks like me over the years...it's been very helpful...

Ditto - time has just gotten too valuable - especially if it's time when

we are feeling decent.
