There are a number of changes that are built into the upgraded SilverDoctors.com. The site has been basically re-built from scratch. You should now see huge improvements in login, registration, site loading speed, comment submission time, and social features across the blog. One of the biggest changes is that you will now be able to redeem SD ounces (points) accumulated by commenting across the blog for actual physical silver or SD merchandise and apparel. Additionally, we are now rewarding any user an additional 100 SD ounces when making a purchase of 100 ounces or more from SD Bullion. We have also added a widget area to the right side tool bar which allows you to browse through articles submitted by a specific SD Contributor.

Accumulating SD Ounces- The Most Asked About Feature of the New Site.
SD contributors can earn SD ounces (points) across the entire blog. Obviously, the Doc can’t afford to be passing out one ounce rounds to everyone on a daily basis. However, we guarantee no other blog will have the reward system we do when it is all said and done with.
