Procrastinators Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from chronic procrastination.

Two new forum boards have been added

At the request of a member, I added two new Forum boards:

  • Accountability Partners / Sponsors (Post here if you are looking for an accountability partner or a sponsor, or if you can be one.)
  • Success Stories (Share your successes here - large or small. Have you caught up on your taxes? Stopped showing up late for work? Even small victories can mean a lot.)

These are in the same section as the two check-in boards. The section is now renamed "Tools and Success Stories".

Reconstructed Forum Index (for use while forum button is broken)

No -- there are not any *new* boards today. This is an *old* thread.
But I had no way to start a new thread, so I'm posting this here!

And I probably posted it in the wrong section, because I'm not an admin here. I'm just an ordinary member. Oh well. This is imperfect!

Pleae don't reply to the bottom of this post -- because then I would be unable to edit it! And it will need editing when we have updated information! If you want to comment, click "Add Comment" at the bottom of the above threadstarter that says "two new forum boards".

How to find older threads (even while the forum menu is broken)

The "Recent Content" link on the left under "Site Content" still works and gives a list of threads in order of last updated.

Yes, if you do this (click on "recent content"), it will show ALL the threads ever, since the founding of the website, regardless if you participated in them or not.

They are not sorted by topic. Just by date. "Recent Content" has a mixture of it all: discussion/intro threads, articles, daily check-in threads, book reviews, 12step ideas, etc. -- all mixed together, sorted by date.

Note: For the date-order of threads, it displays the "most recent" as
the "last thread that was most recently replied to by anybody" --
regardless of how long ago it was started.
Sometimes *editing* a single post will bump its whole thread to a more recent status, but not always.


The "forums" button at the top of the page won't work.

Under "active forum topics" on RIGHT side of page,
the "More" link won't work.

BUT ... here is what you do:
Look to the ***LEFT *** side of the webpage
-- to the LEFT of where you are reading right now
and find "Recent Content" --
click on THOSE words -- "recent content".

That's where ALL the threads are -- all threads since 2005.
* make a contribution
* meeting lists
* p.a. meeting materials
* my account
who is chatting
Site Content
* Recent Content <<====
* Chatbox
* Articles
* Forums
--- Graphics
* Polls

How to specifically find a list of ONLY threads that you have participated in:

Method #1: to find posts you've participated in:
While logged into the website, click on the "Recent Content" link as explained above, and then after you've done that, notice that it says this:

Recent Content

All recent posts (tab) -- My recent posts (tab)

Printer-friendly version

Notice that "All recent posts" is a tab -- and "My recent posts" is a different tab. You can go back and forth between the two tabs.

Method #2 for finding posts you've participated in:
Go to your profile, as follows: You can click on your own name in the lower right side of the page, after you've logged in, where it says "who's logged in" (if your name doesn't show, then refresh the page and it will show.). Or click on your own hypertexted name anywhere on any page. OR ... after you log in, click on "my account" in the upper left corner of the page. Any of these ways (clicking on your hypertexed name anywhere, or clicking on your account) -- will take you to your profile. Once you're at your profile, just click "Track" -- and it will give you a list of all the threads you've ever posted in.

Regardless of method ...
The date-order of your "tracked threads" or "My recent content"
displays the "most recent" as
the "last thread you participated in that was most recently replied to by anybody".

For example: if there is a six-year-old thread that you replied to long ago
-- but somebody else replied to recently -- then that will display as being one of your more recent threads.

But other than those odd exceptions -- you'll find all check-in threads you've posted on -- in a somewhat reasonable order. This is also a good way to find any "special projects and master lists" posts you may have posted in. And any intro/discussion threads you replied to. Or any articles, polls, or reviews that you may have replied to.




Thanks. That was fast Smile

Thank you pro!

I haven't been on in like a week, and am excited to see new changes! Thank you pro!
