    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.

    I think closing this forum is the best thing that could be done under the circumstances.

    I don't think the situation in the SC forum will improve regardless of the level of moderation.

    Instead of waiting until the current advertising campaign is complete, you should probably contact the advertiser to see what they want done. I think they would be willing to discontinue the current campaign, and forego any refund for the advertising, in favor of the forum being closed.

    I think all the debate about SCMUA should be moved into the MUA-Belize forum since they are responsible for it now.

    its just gonna move to another vmd forum if this one closes. i think strict moderation of this forum should continue.

    although there is a lot of bickering going on, there are many students that get great knowledge from this forum. lets face it, if most SC students came on this forum to get info many years ago, quite a few wouldnt be in the mess they are in now.

    Hopefully it wouldn't continue onto another forum.

    If they won't close this forum they should at least make this a sub-forum of MUA-Belize then, it shouldn't be its own forum any longer.

    This place has just become a sore on the butt that is ValueMD.

    a sub forum doesnt sound like a bad idea. however, what happens to the SC senegal students since most of those sticking with SC seem to be leaning towards that side of the split.

    However, we can't close the forum until the current advertising campaign is completed, which I believe is in June. Therefore, I will ask the current Mods and Supermods to pitch in and oversee the forum in the meantime.

    Can you explain the relationship of a forum and advertising?

    We have started our own forums, so a forum on ValueMD isn't necessarily needed or desired.

    VMD agreed to display the SC banner on the SC forum for a certain period of time. If we took down the forum before the period was over, we would be in breech of contract. Therefore, that is not an option since we fully intend to honor our commitment.
