The SDN Community The SDN forums are nearing their 3-year anniversary, and have grown to over 16,000 registered members. In order to continue to develop SDN as the best resource for pre-medical students, please follow these simple rules for the forums. If you have any questions or problems, please feel free to contact me. Advertising Services We do not allow people to post threads or to send private messages or emails to users here that advertise any products or services. If you use SDN for free advertising without written consent, we will permanently block your product's name on the site. Discussions The reason SDN has grown to become the largest pre-med and medical student forum is because of the great people that participate in the forums. Everyone is here to help each other, and to make it into (and through) medical school. We do ask that you follow some simple guidelines while at SDN, and ask you respect the following: While debating and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate insulting posts or personal attacks. Offenders should be reported (use the "report this post" option) and they will be warned and/or banned if necessary. Multiple or repeated posting in order to increase your post count is not allowed. No padding! Advertising and spam of any nature is not allowed. If you have a strong religious or personal belief that you feel the need to force on everyone else, please don?t; SDN is for student discussions, not proselytizing. If you can't say something nice, don't say it at all. Discussion of illegal activities such as software and music piracy and other intellectual property violations are not allowed. Any threads/posts of these types will be deleted. Thank you for making SDN such a great place!
