Almost everyone of my posts have been deleted. I'm sorry if I broke a rule although I don't think I did? The closest one that may have been an issue is where she asked to look at her xray image. I said specifically though I was NOT a radiologist nor did I give her a diagnosis.
My Fanconi post has disappeared, my heart question, now this (xray one)
I really enjoy this site and I don't want to upset anyone. Please tell me what I need to do (or not do).
Hi MommyTof4 and welcome to ehealth....It is a great site...However, you are not allow to put images on your posts....I am not sure about the heart question...The original poster's post was deleted because she put a website address on it...These are things that, per the guidelines, are not allowed....
We love you to post, but just remember not to add websites or pictures...Thanks much....Take care...
Oh, ok....sorry, I didn't realize that we couldn't post images at all.
Just a suggestion to save you guys having to keep reading similar posts.....the FAQ section says it's ok/possible under certain conditions.
Thanks again for clearing it up
Can I post Images?
Images can indeed be shown in your posts. However, there is no facility at present for uploading images directly to this board. Therefore you must link to an image stored on a publicly accessible web server, e.g. http://www.some-unknown-place.net/my-pictu
re.gif. You cannot link to pictures stored on your own PC (unless it is a publicly accessible server) nor to images stored behind authentication mechanisms such as Hotmail or Yahoo mailboxes, password-protected sites, etc. To display the image use either the BBCode [img] tag or appropriate HTML (if allowed).
I am sorry you are having so many problems with your posts. Sometimes, in the efforts to preserve people's privacy and prevent spam/ unsolicited advertisements, posts are deleted.
If I knew more about your posts, I could give you a more specific answer but here are some of the common reasons posts are deleted or under review:
- Posting personal information such as email addresses
- Including links to outside sources (exceptions include google images and the like, site addresses which end in .gov, and links to other ehealth forum posts) I have been guilty of this before.
My only sugesstion is that you retain copies of your next few posts. If any of them are flagged/ pulled you can review the post to see what, if anything, caused the problem. If you see no problem, you can send administration a copy of the message and argue that you have not broken any rules of the site.
One other thing- any time I have had a post pulled, I received a private message notifying me that my post was taken off the site. This explanation always included a reason- links in post, advertising, personal information, mean spirited post...
Hope you get this resolved soon and, again, sorry you are having so many problems.
