    the problem with closing down the forum is that the frequent SC debates will probably move to another forum. the new threads will most likely start on mua belize because of the merger.

    i think ironclad moderation would be the best option over closing the forum.

    Public. It isn't quite ready for primetime, but should be ready by next week.

    Don't get any silly ideas, what has gone on over here will not be tolerated on that forum. It will be very heavily moderated.

    First of all, I think you should consider whether you really need to have a moderator for each forum. I suspect you could easily reduce the number of moderators and have several super-moderators such as teratos, steph, who act as moderators for all of valueMD.

    Second, if you do decide to select a moderator for the SC forum, you should pick somebody who is not affiliated with SC. It is a natural conflict of interest for a SC student to moderate the SC forum.

    Finally, in watching the forum over the years, you are better off picking moderator who has already graduated or who is at least in their clinical training. These individuals tend to have some perspective and are less likely to engage in promotion.

    i do like the new software that doc is using to purge multiple account users.

    making the SC forum every mods pet project would be the way to go.

    There is nothing wrong with heated debate --within the TOS.
    I agree with DrB on this. Closing this forum wouldn't solve the problem. People would just post the SC topics elsewhere(Either MUA forum or the Relaxing Lounge). And if a totally dead school like Kigezi has an open forum, why not one which is barely dead? (kidding kidding)

    Kigezi has closed and still has its own forum on this website. What is the difference between Kigezi and St Chris, other than financial obligations?
