I know from some private messages and some public comments that there are a few organisational suggestions for how the board is laid out. In the first instance I am copying Tiger's comments here - she puts it so more cleanly than I seem to manage!
"It's a shame that there can't be sub forums and private chat areas here, I think that would help enormously. It would also be good to have a document area where people could write an account of things that help them, coping strategies - well all sorts of things really. One thing I think we can do, and I am toying with making this a blog post, is to be more precise with our question headings. Then we can scroll quickly through the forum to see if our questions have been answered already, or if there is something similar that would help. On looking through the blogs and questions I note that there are duplicates - and some blogs have questions in them. If it's been answered already other members might not respond to it a second time. It's a bit of a minefield, especially when you are worried and looking for answers. The more popular and busy the forum gets, the more pages there will be, so perhaps categories would make it easier.
This is not a personal criticism of ANYONE, but simply an example of what I mean - a question headed 'my daughter' or 'help' may not get the best response because there is nothing to suggest what the question is. It would be great if we could have a system whereby things were catagorised and therefore easy to find. e.g. 'SYMPTOMS - sore eyes' or SYMPTOMS, FATIGUE' and 'MEDICATION - methotrexate.' or CENTRES OF EXCELLENCE - referral query.' and so on."
