    Hi

    I want to ask if it would be a good idea if the mods and admins could make a subforum about personal affairs. This could include familiar, personal or even technical problems or questions, where we could help each other. What do you think about this?

    Nobody here is qualified to give professional help. We do have various forums where you can ask technical questions, post your opinions on personal issues. etc.

    Anything on a more professional level isn't going to work here...

    I think it's a good way for people to set themselves up to be mocked. There are quite a few helpful individuals here, but also plenty who would thoroughly enjoy the ammunition of people disclosing their "personal problems".

    Not a bad idea Mr S. however this is not the best place for personal issues. But both Sherry and Dis have points.

    Sure you can ask or try and discuss personal issues but i would think long and hard about it before you post.

    My opinion is "ask away". Plenty of people here have asked for and gotten assistance for all sorts of issues from personal to plumbing. Many here ARE professionals and if they are willing to help, why not use them? Just remember you often get what you pay for and you are still responsible for any advice you use. Caveat Emptor.

    There's a pet forum, a computer forum, a health and lifestyle forum, even a law and legal system forum. And of course general discussion for all the stuff that doesn't fit anywhere else. If you really want to ask for advice or opinions, knock your socks off. Some people do. Others try to be helpful. But I'd think long and hard before giving out too much personal information, or following any advice you get here.

    Don't sell yourself short!

    You are qualified to give assistance on how to administrate.

    I've helped some people here, but due to HIPAA regulations, I am not able to discuss this matter any further.

    Now who's going to trust a doctor that has as much time to talk about nothing as you do? :eek:

    Hell I switched doctors because I found MINE standing in a gas station eating a donut.

    I'm sure that your doctor was heartbroken as you sound like a charming patient...a true joy to care for.
