    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    I should talk - I have not been on here for such a long time. The new format seems to have accomplished sending board members away. I hope everyone is well and enjoying the summer months. Best wishes.

    Hi Geraldine, Hope you're well. I think we've all lost interest in trying to manuever around the board! But we check in occasionally. And that's a used to be such a nice place to "meet" everyday. But hey, we got you to come look for us this time! lol

    It is very hot here in Florida. I try to do things I have to outside after dark! Last night I was re-potting some plants. I put my ti plant in a bigger pot and moved a saga palm to a better pot to give to a friend. I heard rumbling and thunder earlier. Think it went in other direction away from us. My green pepper is growing, I've had a few already. I found the wisteria my grandson mowed down a few weeks ago is growing again! Seems we get more tired now in the hot weather.

    take care, Linda

    Hi Linda, Happy to hear you are doing well. I live in a state bordering Canada so our weather is good. Our summer is a busy time because our winters are severe.

    Do you know why they changed the format? It seems strange that anyone can start an exchange board. That means that there are so many exchanges that it is difficult to find anything. What were they thinking?

    Oh, you know they thought they should make it new and improved...some things are good the way they are! Must have wanted us to have more access to information. Now if I can find if we can be informed when someone writes on our post......
