Hi again Sadie,
About the new menu for conversations:
How can we transfer Personal Stories from the old forums to the new section on the menu here, which does have the correct title?
We have had some wonderful long running posts from some great men, some of whom have now left us, such as Andy Ripley and Spurspark (Mark) and his 'Rocky Road' and from longstanding members such as Rob and Allister and others who have run the gamut of treatments and clinical trials, acting as pioneers for us all. There are many more names.
It would be a shame to have those stories locked away in the old forum, or even lost altogether.
The information in those posts is priceless.
And the new 'Treatment' section'...I don't think 'Getting Rid of Prostate Cancer' is a suitable heading.
We don't have a cure yet, unless someone is lucky enough to be diagnosed in time and have the perfect op carried out by the best surgeon around.
Surely it would be better to word it simply 'TREATMENT', (but I do agree with the next one, 'Treatment of Advanced Cancer', because there is a big difference).
Yes, there are suitable new topic titles on this site, but how can we transfer very valuable Diet and Lifestyle and Prostate Cancer Guidelines posts for instance from the old to the new.
One of our members, Art, submitted brilliant posts on tackling bureaucracy and how to complain etc.
Very important, since so many of us have had shoddy medical care at one time or another.
So, is there a way to do all this? All I could think of was the slow business of copying and pasting old posts to the new forums, as some have done, but how about the transfer of those important stories from members now deceased, but who inspired us all?
