    I don't know about that . . . . read the med student and residency groups down the main forum page. Looks like it gets worse and worse . . .. .

    im still trying to find my perfect avatar...

    every time i hear that word i think of the ultima series of PC games
     
  10. Nah, this just makes the addiction more maladaptive- you come on all the time for no reason at all, and waste time making useless posts to reach the 2,000 mark... and repeatedly change your avatar, etc. and when you get bored sometimes you change your screenname. :)

    Yeah, it's all fun and games until someone offends you and you get involved in a lengthy, life-force-draining debate with someone whose arguments are confusing due to really poor spelling and logic skills ... :laugh:

    If you can avoid the Troll Pit, SDN is a *great* addiction! It's getting me through my senioritis by keeping me at my desk so I can study between posts :rolleyes:

    I think 12 years and 4 months later, it may be too late.

    There has got to be a way for threads to have an automatic lock after 2 years, a DNR if you will. I say two years as the application cycle can last more than a year

    Some threads have legs, though. Perhaps a thread with no activity after a set time might work?

    I was thinking more time than that... Though I do know there are some posts that are bumped just for the lulz in the lounge. I'd hate to not be able to do that.

    some threads I think there's value in having it running over the years

    residency program threads. It's neat to compare responses from 5 years ago with more recent ones.

    another example, when we get updates on famous cases (there was a thread like this recently)
    and also, someone who came in with a crisis and then comes back after finishing some training to say "Thanks guys your advice worked"
