The First Introduction of 2023

Hi there, I'm Pangolin. You can call me Pango, Pang or any other nickname you come up with (within reason). I have ASD Level 2 and ADHD-PI, which very much intertwine with each other and are relevant in my day-to-day life.

I've always been interested in forums over social media as I dislike media-heavy platforms. Reddit was about the closest to a major social media platform that appealed to me but unfortunately the ratio of discussions and media can greatly vary by subreddit. I was worried that the active forum for autistic people would only be very dated ones but I fortunately stumbled upon here. I've noticed an overall dislike of Wrong Planet though I don't know the context of it, so it would be appreciated if anyone can explain why that is.

Aside from that, I hope that we're able to cooperate with each other and that my time here will be pleasant.

    Welcome Pang.

    I'm also not a social media fan.

    Hi Verity, it's good to meet you. Are you the sole administrator of the forums or are there other admins present?
  • verityverity Administrator, Citizen
    I'm the technical admin. We have another non-technical admin.

    That's good to hear. Is there a private messaging feature on this forum? At the moment you're the first user I've spoken to and the most active one, and I would like to have individual conversations from time-to-time for both casual and site-related matters.

    I have not seen a platform like this for the autism community before and I find myself greatly invested in the maintenance of this forum.

    I will keep that in mind for any private support enquiries. Aside from that, I am more than fine to wait out the membership requirements.

    What upgrades do you have in mind? Assuming that they don't need to be confidential for whatever reason.
