"I just tested Postive" A forum poll on how you like it now
« on: September 28, 2006, 08:28:29 PM »
Here's a serious poll. 

It's about the new forum and what we 'think' of it now that it's live and active.

There was much discussion about if we should or shouldn't host this new forum.  Now, after seeing it in operation.. Whaddya think?

Does it help or hinder this site?

You decide and vote please.... no ending vote date

Is this poll officially sanctioned by the Powers That Be?

I won't delete this thread as it is a valid question and one that was going to be discussed after launching the new forum for newly diagnosed.

Matty, no it's not.  This is just a gauge of what people feel about how positive or negative the new forum is.

I won't give my opinion one way or the other.... just yet.

edit:  for the record, I was in support of the new forum before it launched.

It has its pros and cons. Ann is always removing people from it, because of not obtaining confirmation. We have a lot of WW reading the posts and then coming back to the AM I infected forum with absurd questions. I have read some posts between some new diagnosed people which seems like it does help for some. I really don't see a difference than the Living With forum.

Hi Bailey

I have only posted a few replies myself in that forum, but from what I read from everybody I think it is doing extremely well...I think the guys here have been a great help to all those who have found themselves newly diagnosed, they have informed them, calmed them and given them hope...and that, as far as I'm concerned is the wonderful thing about this forum.

Hope you have a great weekend.
Hugs

To be honest, I wasn't in favor of the new forum.  I have only been in there a small handful of times as I've been feeling rather overwhelmed myself (not necessarily because of HIV) of late.  I just simply haven't had the energy to console others.  So my vote would be a "No opinion".

Perhaps such a choice should be placed in the poll, MBB.   ;)


Edited:  this paragraph out, just because I wanted to and I can.   ;)

I have a simple question.  Why are "we" polling in this forum and not the "Newly Diagnosed Forum"?   Why don't you ask them?  We certainly don't qualify as benefiting or not..

Just sayin..

I love the new forum because it unclutters the Living with HIV forum and keeps the issues from getting buried in introductions.
