This post was written by Lovett, a Moderator on Fibromyalgia Support. Lovett is one of the 200+ Volunteer Moderators on Ben's Friends Support Communities. Rather than just posting this on the Fibromyalgia site, I thought every community would benefit from this discussion. :)
A link to all medical papers or links to research that previous members have found. Members should be able to post links there. Currently these are buried in the body of discussions & they are hard to find. The content of these articles is so incredibly important & it would be much easier for new people to find.
A link for uploaded pictures & images. If patients who wanted to share their scans for informational purposes, again if they could post them somewhere outside of the discussions, it would make it easier for new people to find.
I would like to see some kind of button on the discussion page where we could put basic information for new members. Right now we often repeat the same information over and over as new people come on to the site. I think that would be very helpful.
Also, a button on the discussion page to link to a list of known experienced Eagles doctors would be very helpful too.
Thanks a lot for asking us!
