Discussion Board is Now Live

Dear Friends,

During the past months, some of you suggested that having a Forum on this website may very much help, in order to let the discussions go beyond the subjects of the articles I published here.

I thought that is a very good idea and starting with today we have that available here http://www.cancertreatmentsresearch.com/community/

The Discussion Board can also be accessed from the Menu bar, at the top/right side of this website, and is visible under the label “Forum”.

To have some coherence in the discussions, I created a structure based on various topics where you can fit the subject you would like to address. However, as you will see, there is also space to initiate discussion subjects beyond those predefined topics.

Please free to start using this discussion board, and if you feel something has to be added or changed there, please let me know and I will do my best to implement that if possible and suitable.

All the best,
Daniel

      1. Thanks Ergin. I am glad you and the other friend here are appreciating the addition of a discussion board. The nice thing is that we can also add attachments, etc. When there is silence on my side, it means I am working on something 🙂
        I expect the same from your side. So, how are you? What are your latest investigations?

        Kind regards,
        Daniel

        1. Would be very nice if we could embed images. gifs / videos/ etc in a max size container but no minimum size.
          So if i were to insert an emoticon, it would be 32/32 for example, but if i insert a video, the video should be resized to 800/600 for example, regardless of it’s actual size at the source. 16k. whatever.
          May be asking for too much, a small relatively useless suggestion :).

          Many many thanks.
          Alex

        2. Daniel you will be too tired on future because of this.
          I tried to post a new topic,but couldnt.
          The title is Hormones and Cancer.
          On thursday blood counts and chemo.I hope no reaction occurs.
          I stopped everything today except metformin.She has chest pain and i am sure because of hormones and heart.
          I will write lots of things and my observations about hormones and T4 depletion strategy (what we are doing now).
          But i am not sure where to write?
          What do you think?
          Kind Regards
          Ergin

              1. Great! Answering your other question: I think is best that we continue writing on the main posts when the subjects are related to those, and we use the Forum only when those do not fit into the main post. That would be natural and helpful for all of us. That is my suggestion but you take what route you like.
                Have a great day on Thursday!

                Good night,
                Daniel

  1. D, is it possible to open up white board space and or a wiki?

    Sometimes you want to go beyond a forum or a thread to post consolidated info.
    For example, a distillation of the knowledge gained from a thread could be posted to a wiki.
    Or an index could help you find posts, words etc.

    Thread based knowledge quickly becomes unmanageable as has been learned on the Compass thread.

      1. Hi Daniel, it just popped up in my mind to share it with you that some online forums, in order to avoid spam, advertisement and other type of posts they do not want, use a basic leveling system so that users who have just joined the forum can not create topics until they reach a certain number of comments for example(or other activities). You could use a similar mechanism here to avoid spams and possible ads.

        1. Hi Pouya, thanks for the suggestion. Indeed, I have this option that comes with the forum option and I will use it if I see is needed. So far, the fact that only registered users can start a topic helps me in not having to deal with spams.

  2. D, that would be great!

    I was thinking of something like having a white board of amino acid metabolism, glycolysis/Krebs cycle, electron transport, fatty acid energy cycle … and then we could add to the drawing. Many times in biology words are not the best way to express things because there are complicated feedback loops and other interactions. A whiteboard could greatly help posters understand and communicate better.

    1. Hi J, thank you for the suggestion. I o not have a clear view on how that would work. However, I will consider a whiteboard and look into that if we see there are enough users who would like to use that.
