    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.

    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

i just want to re-iterate that discord has voice and video chat functions for free that have no time limits...

i posted this on the REDDIT page that was created:
 

Quote

no one using REDDIT i see? this seems to me a much better option...using this along side Discord- free to use- no overhead and much better tools already at your disposal(ie chat functions, direct msges, break out rooms, even video chat options) shame only 4 people have even looked here and 1 is the guy that created it....no one has been to the discord other than the creator of this REDDIT and one other guy from Hadit.... just a shame-
old dogs new tricks i suppose


i appreciate the want to keep this webpage but in 2022/23 hosting a page like this is not cost effective- giving free without needing contribution from its members constantly or advertising funds...and that takes away from the experience. millennial and gen z vets know REDDIT and discord...they use it for other services and programs....heck even moving the Podcast to something more friendly like YouTube would get so much traction(shocker but you dont have to show your face but this could help a lot with getting attention and traffic to whatever site used- YouTube is one of the largest resources for getting information)
these are all just ideas but i just want to show that we dont have to keep doing what we have always done- what hadit has been has helped so many veterans- but maybe its time to try something new and embrace newer ways to connect with veterans- i am in at least 4 veterans Facebook groups that have over 50k vets in them each- thats just one example- and its free...

as it was said before- there were some notable points made even if i dont agree with everything that was said in that "blog"(more like a childs temper tantrum and rant)... @Tbird has done amazing things for us all, and has built this community to what it is now and is deserving of retirement and rest- lets take what she built and build on it, not keep it the same just for the sake of nostalgia

@blahsaysme2uYou are right there are many ways to do this. This option worked for me, excellent tech support, and more importantly excellent security, Come to the meeting on Saturday get your two cents in. Stay tuned for more information.

Notice I edited the Zoom meetings.  I am not familiar yet with the scheduling and got every 8 weeks instead of every week for 8 weeks. 

Did not notice when I first posted util I looked the meeting bar to see if Tbird had corrected it.  I learned how to cancel a scheduled meeting today and then reschedule properly.  Sorry about the mistake.

I wanted to use Zoom because of their commercial commitment.  Corporations would not use it if it were not safe.  I could also have used MS teams for free.  Since we are already under attack, I did not want to increase the open door.  The waiting room option lets us admit only those who are members and have not been removed as members. I will turn hosting over to Tbird so she can do the admissions from the member list.

I had the wrong link but I edited. I went to the meeting but Lemuel never showed to open and start the meeting. So perhaps he meant to start in next Saturday since is the weekend after Thanksgiving. I haven't heard from him and I am hoping all is well with him.

I'm in the waiting room for the meeting. Lemuel has not arrived to open it and let us in yet.

Sorry everyone.  Got side tracked by guests and lost track of time.  I opened Zoom and admitted one from the waiting room.

It Turns Out HadIt.com Is Not Dead Yet!

After posting that the last day of hadit.com would be Dec 17, 2022, our membership rolled up their sleeves and jumped in to help problem solve.

We have Zoom Meetings on Saturdays between now and Jan 20, 2023 

So far, the good news is that it is looking like HadIt.com can continue.

We are forming a board of volunteers from our membership who want to be involved in the site’s future.

As far as me, I will still retire. I have a few folks in mind to lead the site into the future. If one of them accepts my offer, I will gift the site to them. They will need to form a board of advisors made up of members of our community.

* I have a list of members that I want on the board.
* I want the current moderators to stay if they want to.

We are still trying to fight various attacks on the site. Some of our content is currently offline. We are working on getting everything back to normal.
