             I found a really interesting site while completely bored. I read the rules but am unsure if it would be okay to post.
   Its a site where you type in you name as it was given and it gives you the meaning and an over view of what your personality traits could be like.  Mine was spot on and I was so interested and amazed that I forgot about my pain.  There is no signing up, just type in a name and boom...thats it!
Thought it might be fun, but dont want to break the rules so can someone let me know.

Scratch it, I would be promoting someone elses personal web site and I dont think that falls under allowable web links. It was really interesting anyway the way your first name has an effect on your personality sometimes!

There's nothing wrong with linking to someone's web site....even if they have something to gain from it.....as long as you are a legitimate member of a web site and do something there to congtribute to the community aside from just spamming commercial links!

Personally, as a very experienced webmaster myself, I don't think you should worry about it too much.
Conditions: Reactive Arthralgia/Reactive Constellation, Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome, Sacroiliitis, Costochondritis, widespread Tendonitis, severe back pain & spasms with numerous spinal problems, barely able to type anymore due to severe full-body runaway inflammation, and on and on. Typical daily pain levels exceed 8.5(!)

Medications: Methadone, Dilaudid, Oxycodone, Marinol, Cesamet, Lidocaine Patches, Flexeril, Zanaflex, Soma, Desipramine; many herbs & supplements.


Previous medications: Oxycontin, Opana, Fentanyl patches, Kadian, Avinza, MS Contin, Lortab, OxyIR, Baclofen, Testosterone (oral, patches, gel), Cymbalta, Lyrica, Neurontin, Amitryptyline, every NSAID known to man, Prednisone....and many, MANY more.

Exit - I'm not so sure. I think a moderator needs to evaluate this. Links to other webistes can be problematic, especially if there is something to gain. You may want to read the rules for this forum.

Right you are Lyn. As long as you have nothing to gain by posting another website then it's ok. The only offense I can think of is that the Chronic Pain Moderators may deem it off topic.

I couldnt really understand the writing of the rule when it came to other peoples personal web sites...I have nothing vested in this site and do not even know the person.
It might be off topic, but I think its just as important when your in chronic pain...especially if your stuck in doors feeling to bad to go out, that people share the cute little things they come across that maybe you wouldnt come upon yourself. It helps to do silly little things that let you take the focus off of pain and what the pain is doing to you. And hey alot of us are all on the internet alot anyway.
In my opinion, and its only my opinion, anything intersting and fun is worth a post if it can get your mind somewhere else if even for a minute. Its not a big deal,just thought it may be something silly and fun to do if your having a bad day.

I guess it's a bit of a grey area, Freya, although Chutzie (our chronic pain forum moderator) probably needs to weigh in. The thing is there are lots of things that could distract us and if we all started posting them here this board could get cluttered pretty fast. Plus there's the issue of evaluating other websites and whether some of them might without your knowledge be spammers, etc. I like coming to this board because it's focused primarily on chronic pain issues, and I know I can go to other things any time I want. If it's a useful resource, then maybe doing what the moderator above suggests is the direction to take - submit it for consideration in the resource section. But just for my opnion I'd had to see the site get too cluttered with off topic links.

Sorry I took so long. Yes, it's off topic but when you're in pain some kind of distraction is often helpful. I can't see any problem with posting the site.

Freya - since Chutz gave the approval, would you like to share that website? I'm always interested in those kinds of things too. It's interesting!

Just a word of caution - if the website asks for your full name, and any other details like birthdate, etc., be careful it's not set up to just get your info. I'd really see how credible the site is before putting in my name or anything, considering identity theft issues these days.

Wow, I wish I would have kept the web site adress, I figured it wasnt really worth all the back and forth for such a little silly thing. I dont really post off subject matters very often, it would have to be something that was really interesting or fun and leave you feeling better for having done it or read it.
You didnt have to add any personal info except your first name or just your last name. Thats why this site seemed very reputable, you were not asked to give any identifying information. Tons of people have the first name Tom or Jane or the last name Smith or Jones(unless your last name is not common at all) so I guess it depends on what you feel comfortable with and what the site demands from you. If they claim to need everything except your S.S#, I would never feel okay about that. But just a first name without a b-day seems safe..or visa versa if you wanted to see what your last name means.
Anyhow, Sorry Red wish I wouldnt have assumed
If I come across it again I'll give a quick post!

Those can be just awful, I can just imagine what mine would say although I look so young. I've always said its mother natures backwards sense of humor to make me appear 15 years younger than I actually am while leaving me feel so worn out inside!
