Number of Forum Accounts You Can Have
- That would be one .
- Caregivers - only Caregivers are allowed in the Caregivers Forum. Please give them the privacy they need to be as open as possible in their discussions.
- People With A Possible Financial Interest - We recognize the dangers of self-promotion in as wide open a field as ME/CFS and FM treatment is, but we also want people on the Forums to have access to as many legitimate treatment possibilities as possible so, for now, we're allow people with a possible financial interest in this field onto the Forums so long as they identify themselves as product representatives and/or practicing health practitioners and don’t make a pain of themselves promoting their products. They are allowed to put a link in their signature to their product/practice that simply states what it is without touting its benefits (see signatures below). We’ll see how it goes.
- No Slam Policy - Signatures that slam or detract from ME/CFS or FM or other organizations or that involve personal attacks are not allowed. Signatures that promote organizations, ME/CFS or FM initiatives or contests are.
- Product Reps and Health Practitioners - are allowed to identify their products and areas of employment in their signature if they do so without touting any benefits. Stating that “X” product relieves pain in Fibromyalgia, for instance, is not allowed. Putting the name of a product with a link to a website is. Stating that your health coaching practice improves the health of ME/CFS patients is not allowed. Stating that you are a health coach for FM and ME/CFS is and providing a link to your website is.
