Okay, my newest site is for weight loss surgery and I have both pre-ops and post-ops. I would like to "encourage" pre-ops to read one particular surgery board first before heading to the rest of the surgery boards. What I am trying to do is teach them about ALL the surgeries before they decide on one particular one.
The reason for this is the bariatric surgeons out there. About 90% of them do at most 3 of the surgeries not four. News media are just as guilty. They mention two or three of them. So the vast majority of pre-ops come in clueless as to the fact that there are more than just two or three possible options.
That is why I want to lock the four surgery boards to pre-ops.
Part of my TOU which they have to sign as part of registration is this:
Pre- Ops are to head to the Pre-Op Forum for information on all surgeries before visiting any of the individual surgery forums. You must have one post in either the introduction forum or the Pre-op forum before gaining access to any of the surgery forums. Post-Ops, please put a date in your profile to gain immediate access to the surgery forums.
So far, I have locked the forums involved from guest posting. Guests can read but not post.
