I don't understand this site

Hidden

I signed up for what I thought was a public forum on the ADAA site, and one of the things I liked is that it's a .org instead of a .com

But now it tuns out that I'm really a member of "healthunlocked.com"? I don't get it.

I also thought there'd be a button at the bottom of each page where I could go to ask questions like this, but now I can't find it. I guess I didn't understand what I read when I joined up. I'm confused.

Thank you, Gratitude First. So...is this a site run or sponsored by the ADAA? I really don't understand what's up here, and I don't know who to ask. I appreciate your reply.

Sorry, but I don’t know anything about who runs or sponsors this forum!

Hi blue-bayou, as far as I know this forum is owned/rented/run by the charity ADAA. However the actual website which consists of multiple health forums run by different charities is owned by Health Unlocked which also includes Everything Unlocked. It was originally set up by a doctor turned entrepreneur with two of his friends, hope this helps.

I felt a little confused when I first joined, yesterday. I am still learning how to navigate.

I am glad you are here and I hope to talk to you more!:)

I think I've been on this site for maybe 2 weeks now and I am still figuring out how to do things. People here will help you.

Yes the platform is run by Health Unlocked and sites join it and I presume they pay for it. It saves sites having to run themselves as HU take care of all maintainance and also monitor them too. It's easier to deal with trolls as well which is another good reason they join. x

I'm trying to quit the site because I'm so disappointed in it. Not the people here, but just with the site itself. I'm sorry I ever joined.

I tried to quit earlier today (about 3 hours ago) and signed in now only to see if I'd been "de-listed" or whatever.

I want nothing more to do with this site. Why doesn't a site administrator respond to this post and explain about the site? Why are only members (who don't really know) responding? That's one of my many complaints about this site.

I'm glad others get help here, but I'm done. I WANT OUT! If I have to resort to posting streams of obscenities to get the attention of an admin, I will.....

You should be able to delete your acct on your profile page.

I tired to delete/unjoin at my "profile page" and I'm not even sure I found the page. What I did find did not say anything about deleting my account.

HTF do y'all communicate with admins? Or do you? Does anyone ever communicate with site administrators around here???

Okay, I tried again and see absolutely no way to unjoin. I think I'll end up starting several conversations, all laced with obscenities and insults. Maybe that will get the attention of someone who can delete my account. (I'll wait a little bit and see if anyone deletes my account before that. I submitted what I thought would work this morning, 3+ hours ago, and....here I still am.) I HATE THIS PLACE!!! LET ME OUT!!!

I guess you found out how to cancel your account coz you have gone. How to do it is to click into your avatar then settings. Scroll down to the bottom and you will see the option to delete your account.

Admins don't routinely read posts so click on members above and then click on admins to send them a private message.
