What Could've Caused my Uneven Eyes? Doctor Answers, Tips
Plastic surgery Q&A forum shows useful range of provider styles (21 MDs respond). Some are promotional while others are serve-first. @philipyoung suggests an appt. @brentmoelleken provides his own thought leadership. @yoashenzer gives a nice explanation and refers to other MDs, so feels more collaborative. @richardrand offers a counterpoint and recommends against surgery and suggests OP could be less critical of himself. Likewise @rachelstreu suggests that surgery would probably produce little change. When providers recommend against the surgery, their trust levels can rise significantly.

What size and placement? Under the muscle placement or over?(photos) - Breast Augmentation, Breast Implants, and Plastic Surgeons Forums
Excellent example of how healthcare is changing; breast aug client gets "second opinion" type information from another plastic surgeon. Note @kosepuus gives significant detail with her OP, along with pics, which are normal for this procedure. @drpelletiere shows his/her expertise with the details in response. Note @kosepuus follows up with pics to support her next point (here a pic is worth WAY MORE than 1,000 words ;^). This helps elicit another great response from @drpelletiere.

Liver transplant for cholangiocarcinoma - Cancer - MedHelp
Several patients/families advise each other on liver cancer/transplants. @wayne1343 gives a standout contribution that shows that laymen/patients can be very well informed. Note that several participants suggest hospitals and physicians around the country for the specific procedure under discussion. This is remarkable as it shows how patients are partners to physicians now; they do not have the training of med professionals, but they often become very well informed in forums like this one.

Soft Lump on Head - Cancer - MedHelp
Thread useful for learning since it exhibits effective and not effective posts. OP @johnny2020 gives incomplete info, so MD @bhumikamd asks questions to get more complete data. @johnny2020 answers the Qs, so the MD gives OP a medical reference and encourages further discussion. OP gives the forum an update after 10 months. Several other posters pile on, but their posts contain little data & reflect the need to be heard. I don't mean to diminish this need, but without giving details or framing what kind of help they want, they reduce the chance they'll get responses. And none did.

vocal cord cancer - Cancer - MedHelp
Excellent example of a cancer patient having a detailed discussion with a physician in a public forum about patient's recovery from radiation and chemotherapy for her throat cancer. It shows that MDs can and do have medical discussions in digital public; @heinrikmd serves @lolita620 in several rounds of questions. Note that specific (technical) details greatly increase the quality of the interaction; vagueness acts as a wet blanket. @heinrikmd's first response indirectly invites more detail.

Outsourcing Accounting Services & Finding The Best Vendor
CEO of consultancy seeks advice on evaluating firms for outsourced accounting services offers good/bad lessons; @keithperry offers a high-quality contribution, and he sets the bar high; @lynneholloman means well, but her suggestion is not substantial, so she should have added more substance or stayed out because comparatively she makes no impact; @keithjohnson looks bad for politicking; @billhite qualifies that his firm offers those services but doesn't come across as selling, only offers the provider's POV, so useful; @jdfloyd offers a great source & shows that contributions need not be long, but if short, specific; @molliemossman stands out b/c she reframes the question, OP may not need to outsource, she recommends self-sufficiency; @gerrilazarre gives a fine, in-depth response. All together a high quality thread!

SaaS Commission Plans - What Works Best?
Superb discussion in CFO forum advising CFO of SaaS firm on B2B sales commission structure; look at the depth/breadth of advice in the forum; OP doesn't come back in to debate, but if he had, I'm sure it would've increased the depth substantially; several members qualify their advice by explaining their roles, and this makes their advice more helpful; stating your point of view explicitly is best practice. Several contributors refer to each other's comments, too, which increases the quality of the discussion.

2016 IASB Rules Changes & Lease Accounting
CFO discussion about evolving accounting regulations and how they affect OP's books, leases and firm. Overall superb example of high-quality service to forum members in esoteric subjects; note how members know each other and refer to each other in their contributions; @molliemossman gives a comprehensive response that has a tinge of self-promotion but includes many useful links and substantial ideas. Note that 2 members give their email addresses, too.

When is the right time to find more office space?
CFO asks forum for advice on relocating corporate office; several excellent detailed contributions; all contributions are substantial, and no contributor promotes him/herself; in fact, note this forum's "flag as offensive/promotional" link; it's clear that this forum has a strong service culture, which generally increases the level of trust and depth of contribution

What is the best places to get hosting?
Useful to compare helpful and not-so-helpful contributions: @changedcreation gives a useful process suggestion; @timerider asks the OP for more info; @geekghost gives some of the best tactical advice; @aronmatt3 offers a name but it's fairly useless as s/he doesn't qualify the suggestion; @kimmyyong similarly doesn't qualify, so advice useless; @jgrieg interjects some humor with advice; @promocodegirl and others give pricing/coupon suggestions. Overall, this is an excellent example of the depth and breadth of advice that prospective buyers get; note that the thread continues for several pages!

SEO Selection.
Excellent example of forum members serving a business owner asking advice on selecting an SEO firm. @joeroxx kicks it off with a comprehensive set of suggestions; @kevinpeter adds some process tips; @joeroxx comes back in to respectfully disagree with @tedel's advice. Great example of how prospects self-educate and of how people serve each other online.

Cloud Accounting Software Comparison Discussion
Superb thread advises OP on how to organize a vendor evaluation/selection process for cloud accounting software. It has numerous useful contributions; note @LenGreen asks several basis questions to help the forum give better responses; @KenStumder drills down with more business questions; @BobScarborough synthesizes the thread thus far and offers some advice. Excellent example of serving, not selling. Note that many of the participants are finance professionals but none offers his/her services. #kudos

E-marketing advice please!!
@julian provides a standout response that gives read value without promoting himself. Note the value stems from his setting the context and providing extensive detail. These two elements show that he understands the situation and has significant expertise in helping people with email marketing [and related]. Well done.

Is door-to-door solicitation practical in business... - The Corner
I picked this one because it uses two ways to add value. The responder offers a detailed response, but he also uses a pinch of irony and humor, which can add significant value if done respectfully and carefully. I don’t recommend using humor until you know the character of the venue well enough; it is likely to do more harm than good. However, in this case, @stingray is a “Super Advisor” who obviously knows this forum very well. It adds to his credibility and authority because he shows his confidence. Most important, it adds value but doesn’t substitute for it; he delivers high quality detail.

Quality and Quantity - Shall We?: General discussion at CallCentreVoice
OP (Brent) asked the question and interspersed the “Answer” within the thread that we reference here. He illustrates another best practice that any discussion participant can do: synthesizes other responses while referring directly to them. I call this “moderation” because it combines discrete ideas and often adds insight to them, which elevates the entire discussion. Note that anyone can play a moderator role; it is an excellent way to add value while showing your mastery of the subject. Well done, Brent!

Off-the-charts engagement help OP member @humber plan her mommyjob (tummy tuck + breast augmentation). Note the detail in her OP in terms of the medical (weight loss, former operations) as well as their emotional meaning for her, as well as her family situation; she owns her feelings, which makes it easier for other members to relate. @cherrypie99 offers a standout contribution because she reminds all that she's speaking about *her* experience & the detail abt her recovery is useful. Note how @humber serves as moderator by responding to contributors, another best practice. @vex pops a great question, and response from @humber about complications.

Robust thread on whether to mention client names in resumes. One of the most valuable kinds of service: @Tony Restell & @DenLin comment on several of the other comments, respectfully pointing out flaws in the advice. When done professionally and using facts to support one’s position, this helps the questioner evaluate all the other advice in the thread. It also gives other contributors the chance to argue their points.
