For those of us answering questions, sometimes it would be VERY helpful to have more info about a person's history. Could MH perhaps include a section of the profile that would allow for entry of a person's past medical history? You could even develop it to have a drop down menu for most disorders/diseases, and then blank spots for any "write in" issues that weren't on the list. Surgical history and medications could also be valuable in a profile. Of course, this would be optional, as not everyone would want to display that info.
I just know that in a lot of cases, if I KNEW someone had a history of certain conditions, my answer would be a lot different.
If something like this is possible, or in the works, I have some ideas, if you're interested.
Members have the option to share more information about themselves in the “About me” section of their profiles, and anyone who responds to a question has the option of asking for more information before rendering an opinion. Please feel free to do so anytime you feel the information would help. In the meantime, we'll pass your suggestion on to our developers. Hope this helps!
