22 Journal of Technical Writing and Communication Vol. 45 No. 1 2015 thread expresses itself in a collective nature, the initial posts new members often post to request advice embody the individual tale of the diagnosis story. The supporting actors now include site members, who take on mentoring roles and members’ doctors who often take on a role as villain. Interestingly, the initial diagnosis/request for help threads that people. This difference appears to be related to the levelof detail in the post. Messages written with a great deal of detail, like the above message, chain out more successfully than posts like the Hello thread which writes: «I am new here and don’t really know what i am supposed to do so please bare with me, i would love to chat.» The fact that these more detailed posts chain out more successfully would indicate that members are more readily accepted when they express a particular value held by the group: knowledge of the disease. By already exhibiting knowledge of the disease, the poster is establishing his or her legitimacy and the right to take part in the conversation on the site (Galegher,Sproull, & Kiesler, 1998). Responses to the more detailed thread generally kept on topic and offered the member advice. The responses give responders authority in their role as «advice giver» about medical information and take on two forms: authority based on experiential knowledge and advice based on the acceptable standards of care established by the American Diabetes Association (2008, p.
