    Anyone else annoyed with ValueMD lately

    Advertisements



    I am getting really annoyed w/Value MD. Lately every time you start a new thread they try to go back and find other threads similar to it and combine them.

    Some threads are similar & some are not. I understand they want to limit the number of threads but come on! I tried to find out clinical experience of my fellow classmates this semester due to the new preceptors and they combine my question with an old thread!

    Look I like VMD but recently these combinations by whatever moderator have gotten out of hand. We dont want to read 30 previous posts to get to our post or to see the response of other posts.

    Come on now..let VMD be what it is..

    I was the one that went and lumped the two together. The two threads were similar, and hence in order to avoid repetitive threads on the matter, I merged the two together. If you have a problem with that, it's on you. I will keep doing it that way.

    I have a pet peeve, people posting unsubstantiated rumors all the time. Another is people posting the same old questions because they are too lazy to do research on previous threads. Or how about people who come on here to bash others publicly like you are doing right now. Learn to choose your battles. A PM would have got you a lot further.

    No one is forcing you to come to this forum. Love it or leave it.

    Truth of the matter is that is what this forum is all about. If someone has previously posted on something then it's up to you to do the research and look into it. If that means reading 30 other threads then so be it. Your not the only person that comes here new and those other 30 threads might help someone else. If a moderator merges your post with another thread then it's because they feel that it's best for the ENTIRE POPULATION not just you. I would suggest that you keep posting but do a search first. Most of your questions can be answered by doing a search.

    Maybe Juni should realize that Banker has a point and not get offended (sensitive, I suppose) so easily. I agree with Banker since sometimes you perform a search, a find an answer to your question that was posted two or three years ago... well, maybe I'd like a more recent answer, from a current student for example, or how about this... A DIFFERENT OPINION! So if I ask a question like.. what books that are not required do you recommend buying, I dont want my question to be merged with a thread in which the same question was asked a while ago.. I may simply want a fresh perspective.

    Moreover, since Juni has a problem with "people who come on here to bash others publicly," how about removing that little "thread hijacked" icon, which bashes about 1.3 billion people.. uh, Muslims maybe? Nice one Juni.

    .....

    Nice......you correlate Muslims and hijacking and then try to pin it on Juni? A great first post. Hopefully the only person posting useful information here (Juni) will not leave the board in exasperation. We need him here, not vice versa.

    As far as too many threads, some people apparently feel the need to start one for every random thought that pops into their head.

    Start a new forum

    Why not start your own forum? One that let's you post info relevant to your particular school and class. I have been thinking of doing this myself. I even know a site that will let you do this for free.
