Hope you like the improvements, upgrade and new layout for the forums.

As you can see, we've moved a few threads to try and show how the new forums can be used. We think we've got threads in the right place, but if we haven't, please do PM one of us and we'll shift them to a better place!

We thought with so many newbies coming to the site who are on their way to diagnosis, it was important to give them their own forum. I'm sure a lot of us can remember how difficult and upsetting the pre-dx time was, and I think the new forum will help us give better support to people going through the ups and downs of wondering - as well as the frustrations of not making progress when you really want to!

The other thing we've added is a support forum for non-asd issues. Increasingly, ASD children have siblings with other issues (dyspraxia, dyslexia etc) and people understandably want to talk about those issues too. Although we are an Autism/Asperger's support forum, we thought it important to give people a space to share experiences with a variety of other conditions. We hope this will be useful.

See Me, Not My Illness is now a forum on its own, but is still invisible to visitors. All members can read the forum, so it's not exactly private, but it's protected from search engines and so on.

Most stuff has been left in the same forum that it used to be in, but the order of the forums has switched around. Hopefully people will get used to the new layout very quickly.

Whilst all the other mods and admins were working hard, restructuring the forum, I've been playing! ASDF now has its own twitter account. Feel free to take a look (and follow us!) and receive updates once an hour from the board! (Those posts that are invisible to visitors (ie those in See Me Not My Illness) will not appear on the twitter page.)
