I saw a reference as to Chiropractic Orthopedics being deleted as a specialty. I don't remember the notation being clear about why that was. I'd like to discuss the reasoning was behind that, and consider putting it back up. I hold Diplomate/Fellow board certs in that, so I can speak to it. Deleting the entire program, seems to have been a major edit, and so I will wait to hear. DanaS 3/19/2014
I am researching adding DABCO onto the recognized certifications page, however, it would require a caveat. DABCO was the board certification bestowed by ABCO, until approximately 2006 or 2007, who is listed with a website on the specialties page. It was an American program, 3 yr post-Doctoral; consisting of 36 week-end seminars provided through an accredited American Chiropractic college; followed by a Nationally administered Board Certifying Examination. This Board was affiliated with the American Chiropractic Association. The ABCO does claim to be maintaining the certifications, but they are at least difficult to reach. It is believed that the board proper dissolved and most doctors are maintaining their certification via the ACO, using a FACO credential, or DABCO FACO. Many doctors pay their ACO dues and continue as DABCO. I believe this could be represented on the chart. DanaS 03-19-2014
- I am unaware of that being deleted. And we certainly need a good article on this specialty. What you indicate is essential to a proper discussion of the Board(s) and their status, and should indeed be included in that article. We just need to reference it all. If you need help, I'll jump in. ChiroWikiSysop 11:49, 20 March 2014 (MST)
Good work... it still needs expansion regarding the nature of the extensive course work and a history section to explain the differences in the degree designations. On the right track ChiroWikiSysop (talk) 11:26, 28 March 2014 (MST)

Long day and web connection too slow, the correct link that will work is http://oregonchiroassoc.com/ I also edited the OBCE on the state boards page, but there was something wrong with my syntax and it needs to be cleaned up. on this computer today I can't get back to it. DanaS (talk) 19:47, 29 March 2014 (MST)DanaS Today I corrected the OBCE HTML syntax and so that's all working now, where it was not. I was unable to determine how to edit the state assoc URL, since it is in a php format, and is perhaps "From the ACA"? Bottom line is it seems inaccessible. See proper link, above.

OK, oregon assn link fixed on template for state associations. Not on page for regulatory agencies.. that's for the State Board, regulations etc...
BTW: When you put a reference in an article, a.- dont sign it, that's only for messages on talk or discussion pages; and, b.- check out the Editing help page (navigation panel at far left), and see templates for references... you start one with </br>
<ref name="make up name"> (add template here; fill in data), and end it with </ref>
Great. I fixed the syntax on the Oregon Board Chiro Examiners laws & regs page yesterday. The state was broken both Assoc and Regulatory. Now fixed. There are others that need fixing - we will talk about this. DanaS (talk) 11:42, 1 April 2014 (MST)DanaS
Still struggling with the Citation format somewhat - look at the UWS website reference. --DanaS (talk) 16:22, 1 April 2014 (MST)DanaS
Great ideas.... you are already a great contributor to WikiChiro. Before we add a new section to the Navigation Panel, we need a couple of articles to add there... take the bull by the horns and start it, and I'll jump in a help you ChiroWikiSysop (talk) 09:22, 4 April 2014 (MST)
