Some Board Changes

Recommended Posts

In the upcoming days, the site will be going through a major reformatting. You might see changes due to this, and I just wanted to let you know to expect these. These changes are necessary so please bear with us as we go through this process.

 

The Forums and the posts will remain as they are,so there shouldn't be any problems for you there.

 

Thank you all very much,

Jerry/Noxcuse

Well as everyone can see, some of our new sponsors are now involved with Heartboard. I hope this is not any inconvenience or trouble of any kind to you during this transition. This is part of becoming a bigger picture on the Internet to help reach our fellow man or woman with heart problems of any kind.

I ask one thing of our members, please, to help us find out which sponsors stay and which won't. These sponsors are willing to stick their neck out to help us reach the masses. In return, I ask that you visit any sites of interest.This process of different sponsors trying us out will rotate for 90 days or so. We will then find out through statistics, showing how many times their ads were clicked on, which ones can help us the most and those who cannot.

All the links of our sponsors are protected with anti-virus software so they are safe to visit. If no one visits, then like some of our other sponsors we attempted they will pull out. Obviously for Heartboard, it is in our best interest to have as many sponsors as possible. So visit as many of them as you like and even send me an email if you think a particular one is exceptional.

I hope I did an ok job of keeping this explanation simple and understandable. Please feel free to contact me or one of our moderators if you have any questions. Thanks everyone. :common076[1]:

I've looked around now and don't see any sponsors on the screen. I love my iMac because it's easy to use but it sure doesn't fit in with the rest of the world. Can't see the sponsors, can't use the emoticons, at Cleveland Clinic board I get all kinds of profile squares scattered across the screen. Very weird. I'm just not ready to give up my Apple (didn't someone else say that in the garden of Eden?)

Ok, I just turned on our Mac to check and everything works fine, so I do not know what to tell you. I will ask some people to see if they know the answer. Their 1st question will be what kind of Mac do you have so can you send me that info please.

All I know is it's an iMac and has OS 9 and OS X (10). We started out using OS9 then got brave and switched to OS X. Not long ago we downloaded or upgraded or whatever you call it to OS 10 point something. It was OS 10.1 but now it's higher than that.

 

As for MedHelp (Cleveland Clinic site) it seems I'm the only one getting all those profile boxes on the screen. I did visit the site at work (a regular computer) and was able to make some preference changes that followed over to my computer (it's based on my screen name and password I guess) but there was no choice for profile info being shown or not. Oh well, it's not my most favorite place to visit but there is a lot of information about heart problems. Then again, I tend to just ignore mine. That's going to bite me in the fanny one of these days.

Irene,

It's too bad you can't see the sponsors because many of them are for sites that have a lot of information about heart disease.

Here are a few of them that I can see right now on this page (they do rotate so every time one pulls up a new page on our site, different sponsors show up).

http://www.or-live.com/index.cfm?cmpid=goo...y_heart_disease

http://www.hearthope.com/

http://www.prevention.com/tab/0,7199,s1-1-...heart%20disease

 

My computer won't let me copy their ads so I had to go to their websites and get their URL.

The first is titled: coronary heart disease, 24/7 access to surgical videos lf latest patient treatment options.

The next one: End-stage heart failure, left ventricular assist device may increase survival in some patients.

The last: Coronary Heart Disease, signs, symptoms for men & women. Learn more at Prevention.com

 

This is just a sampling of what's been showing up around on the site. It will help a lot if your computer will cooperate, lol, and let you see the ads.

 

Also, on our main page at the top right are links the site has had for a long time:

COMMUNITY LINKS

Cardiology News

MedlinePlus

News-Medical

Disease Database

Drug Interactions

Drug Information

Reference Desk

 

Anyway, it looks like we're starting to get access to more medical information from experts as time goes by.

 

Good luck!

Denise

In case I was not clear we are almost at our (1st) 30 day period with sponsers. It is very important if not critical that you visit some of the sites you would like to stay. Of course, do not click on one's that do not interest you or you think will help the site. All site's from sponsers are safe to visit. It is up to all of you on who stays and who does not. After 90 days they will give us the results. Thank you for your help.

Just a note about sponsors... probably anyone interested in genealogy knows about ancestry.com, but it's a wonderful service. I subscribe and can attest to it's value, I can look up the ships my relatives used to come to this country, find them in US Census back to 1790. It's a great site and worthy of your patronage if you have the interest.

Thanks, flycaster, I'll give it a try. I've been trying to get information on my grandparents who came to this country from Hungary. I tried on the Ellis Island site, but that is very confusing. Also, there's very good possibility they changed their name when they came to this country, which makes it almost impossible.

 

I'd still like to find out about them, hopefully the site you mention will be able to help.

I found the ancestry.com site through one of our sponsors...Family history

I've been doing genealogy since 1980 and have used Ancestry since they have been available. I no longer have to subscribe since the local genealogy society subscribes to it. Ancestry is the only pay site that I have used and liked.

I really enjoy Ancestry.com too. I am also working on geneology!
