New Member to VA

Hello Everyone,

I am currently being diagnosed with Arthritis and other medical conditions which correlate. I am so pleased to have found this website and App as I feel that It has helped me to realise that I am not alone and through our experiences, we can come together and support each other, especially through this Pandemic.

I am going to keep my introduction short and sweet although BT says its good to talk.

And look forward to hearing from you all. ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Doing ok thanks. It's a lovely sunny day in London.

    Working from home but going out for shopping and a walk in my lunch break.

    How are you?

  • I am as good as I could be. Sounds like I should take a leaf out of your book, as the weather is very nice. I doubt I will today, I will be working on a few projects and my personal admin, which should keep me busy, lool no time idle thumbs and all of that.

  • Hello,

    When I first signed up to VA, I was greeted and congratulated with a Level 1 acknowledgement. Can you inform me as to what the Levels mean and how they work? please.

    Thank you,

    Maybe ask in the help line chat area?

    The "Levels" are represented by stars in a box after your forum name, they are based on the number of posts you have made, "likes" etc. Other than that I cannot explain them although I too have asked.

    Plus, there is no need to keep swapping between areas of the forum, just click on "Recent Posts" at the top left hand side of the page and you will see everything that has been posted and discussed since your last visit.
