you're right we should keep new forums open for important things like GT4 and not waste peoples time with silly little things like health.

SHO IS a web community yes it is Honda based and a good chunk of it is Honda related but it is still a web community.

I'm not saying that people should replace their doctor with a forum but we have a place to go look up free porn and even a forum reserved exclusivly for questions about a specific video game (not video games in general) I just don't think it's a bad idea to have a sub forum where people can ask about health questions like should I take Robitussin or Nyquil for my cough not do y'all think I have cancer cause I don't feel like going to the doctor about this lump.

yes, I suggested it a while back and resuggested it just a few days ago because I think it's a good idea. There are way too many posts in OT that get drowned and people talking about their illnesses, surgeries, sicknesses, etc, and looking for cures/methods/help/suggestions should be able to readily access such information.

Don't forget I also suggested I be a mod for it!!!

I'd have given you credit I just couldn't remember who brought it up

I personally think it's a good idea and needs be I'll volunteer to mod it too.

you forget people will see a doctor and mention it in off-topic either way. this is a web forum designed to aid/help people where ever. if you can give free porn, why not give someone some background information on things they may not realize is potentially hazardous. I've been reading a lot of posts about people asking (myself included) for information on certain procedures and such. Like i said before, people are going to ask/talk about it no matter what, might as well make it organized, it's going to take up the same amount of space as it would anywhere else in OT.

For the person mentioning lawsuits, SHO could have been taken to court many times over. It gives people means and know how to revamp cars, disassemble emissions, disabling safety features on vehicles, street racing, questionable porn, porn to minors, drug chats, copyright infringment all over the forums, etc. What would the difference be in giving someone information that is of good value?

remember when boosted had that lump on his nuts (sorry to keep using that example but it was the most major one in recent memory). He didn't have a job and therefore no insurance so he wasn't going to go to the dr but when he posted about it we said hey go to the dr he did and they removed a cyst (I think correct me if I'm wrong there) so we actually ended up helping him.

it's simple enough, create the forum, those who don't need it or don't want it, stay out. for those who want it, it'd be a good place to post your steroid comments. "how to get ripped", "im going to be puny forever", it'd be like a mens health magazine in SHO.

it's good idea

ya..i barely see medical threads, of course your view will change when you have something you need help with, but seriously you can find info easier and quicker and more reliable on webmd or something,

also people might take sho'ers advice, if its wrong then what?....no one wins..

also this is a car forum mainly

i just dont see it being used that much.

just ask in o/t, there aren't 100's of medical threads..there are maybe 20 in a year...
thats my take

I'm seeing more and more of them these days and webmd may help find info but what I like about SHO is that you not only get helpful info but also peoples personal experience

if it's something really major people should not be making decisions based on what they read on a forum they should consult with a dr and in the past we have been pretty good about telling people that we don't know and they should see a dr

we have a porn subforum, a food subforum, an anime sub forum and most recently a Gran Turismo subforum (kinda has to do with cars but it's still just a video game)

I'm pretty sure people would use it if it was there and it would cut down a little on the clutter plus something that could turn out to be major wouldn't get buried under threads like
OMG Just got cut off by a bitch in an SUV


just my humble opinion

thats my take
a medical/health thread consists not just of "flu" "cold" "new virus threads" I have seen at least 20 this past couple months alone! I suggested it be where you contain information about losing weight, healthy eating, exercising, etc, etc, not just people talking about being sick.

WebMD and such requires you to pay for their information in a lot of things, as do others.

The whole "car forum" bit doesn't work too well IF you have OT forums that provide almost 50% of the postings on the site alone. (that's a wild stab at %'s)

but, personally speaking... I think it would be more relative and close to home for MANY more people on SHO than an RC forum which only has 21 threads itself.

look at the thread LASIK, perfect example of a health related topic. here are some others.

only 10% of visitors on this site are in o/t

check it out. there arel ike 800-1000+ people on the site, but only 100 in o/t


and you are counting obviously lol

some of those arent exactly medical or health.

hair removal.

and thats still not enough to me for a new forum

you have to think of traffic, also whats the point if people arent getting things answered or help? and the car bit does matter

I feel that if you created a medical forum that it would be a great idea because the people who were hesistant to post about a medical problem before in the OT forum will think, "hey, here's a forum that could probably help me out" coz it's more "official"...i'm having trouble expressing what i mean but i hope u guys kinda get wut im sayin bleh

no way. With some of the advice and knowledge I hear in this forum, some people would be stupid enough to believe everything they read, and end up with a leg for a dick, an eye for an ass, and directions for making cum shot juice for reducing heart failure.......

That, and we have way to many forums, and no doctors.
