    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,

    Help!!! I posted 4 times on here and NOTHING is showing up. Where oh Where did my little posts go---Where oh where can they be found. Where oh Where is that big black hole.

    You would think the hole would be full by now.

    Haylen, I answered you about my garden----even that hasn't shown up.

    Yes, I did everything Rachael and all have said to do---NOTHING.

    Maybe it is telling me to get off the 'puter and get something else done, Ya think? LOL

    Hi Jan,
    It seems like a lot of my posts say "temporarily unavailable" and then show up hours later. I don't know where the black hole is but if I find it I'll let you know!!!
    have a great day - Jenna

    Things seemed to work really well for a few days and I thought maybe they had it fixed, but I see it's back with a vengeance. A couple of my posts have not emerged from the black hole.

    GGrandmaJan replied to mhall6252's response:
    Michelle, I know it is totally frustrating. None of my posts have showed up today.

    I am afraid our wonderful ladies are just going to quit posting if they don't get it fixed and Soon!!!!!!!

    I hope you are doing good with the new chemo. You are one amazing woman. I so admire your attitude and how you are dealing with everything.

    P.S. If my post ends up in the Black Hole---Well dang it---I tried.

    Hi again Michelle,
    I am wondering if one of their ads might have a virus? I noticed things really went down hill when the Virginia Mason Medical Center ad came on the top of the board?? Do you see it Michelle at the top of the board or is it just on mine as I live around the Seattle area? Just a thought.

    Haylen, If you read this could it be possible an ad has a virus in it ????

    Please, hope it is fixed soon.

    I have been trying to catch you for a couple of days.
    I went to grocery yesterday, thought of you, bought
    some fresh basil, small pkg, 3/4 of an ounce and it
    cost me $2.88. Can you believe that? Did that come
    from your garden? If it didn't, you need to ship me some
    and I'll sell it and we can get right. some of my prescriptions
    are cheaper than that. LOL! Better be a good recipe.
    I got my surgery date today.
    Sept. 12th. I thought we could go together, but I guess
    not. Tomorrow I meet new Oncologist. Looking forward to
    that. I think!!!!!!!!!!!
    Hope you are doing well.
    I have been having trouble with message boards also.
    love n hugs to all

    Every time i try to post this is happening to me. I feel so out of touch with everyone now! It's making my blood pressure go up. Just so you know, I have tried to post, could never forget any of you! Obviously, they need to do some serious maintenance on this site.
    I'm so happy for you. Sept 12th was my Dad's birthday so i know it will be good luck for you! He was a great Irish man, so all my lucky shamrocks go to you that day for sure! Just rest till then and take extra great care of yourself! Stay OUT of any germy places from now till long after your surgery. Take no risks and you will do great! That recipe sounds awesome! I'm gonna make it tomorrow. I have tons of cherry tomatoes and fresh basil in my garden as well. Sounds yummy and healthy!!
    Love, hugs and lucky shamrocks
    mhall6252 replied to GGrandmaJan's response:
    Well, I think they fixed the ad problem. I noticed it on the Diabetes Community board and it was a WebMD Facebook ad that was overlaying the menu on the left side! Something was definitely fouled up.

    The delayed or lost postings continue to be a problem. It's a pain, but if you can highlight your message and then hit

    "control c" (the CTRL key and the c key at the same time) it will copy the text and then you can paste it to a text file and save it on your desktop. If your message doesn't post, it will be easy to create a new one. But yes, I know, you have to remember to do that! I have the same problem!

    Faith - sometimes our grocery store sells "live" basil plants. You can actually plant it and grow it. And some of the nurseries still have basil plants left over from gardening season. I planted one big pot with 2 kinds of basil, parsley, chives and rosemary. It is huge and very lush right now! Add that to salads, top off tomatoes and mozzarella, need to make some pesto, etc. Good luck with your new oncologist!

    Hang in there, Sandy! This is not important enough to get your blood pressure up there. Isn't it funny how the little things can get us going? We expect so much from technology these days, does anyone remember how we did this ten years ago??? NOT!!!

    Speaking of technology, I had to call the local telephone company to get service for my mom's new apartment. OMG!!! It took 3 phone calls and two days before they could fix their database and get her address correct. For some reason they had the address of this specific apartment wrong, even though they had all the other apartments for the whole building correctly entered. They could not place the order for service until they had the right address. I had to argue with the customer service rep to get him to understand that I was telling him the correct address. This all started last Friday! So finally this afternoon the order got entered and she'll get phone service next Monday. That's as fast as they can go, and they probably don't have to do a single thing except enter a few computer keystrokes! And they wonder why local telephone service is dying! I could have had a cell phone in her hands and working in an hour...if only she could figure out how to use the darn thing!

    Time to go to bed, ladies! Hope everyone has a great day tomorrow.

    I hear you ladies! It has been a grueling day across all of the communities..

    Please know that fixing these problems is a priority for WebMD. And the moderators are facing the exact same issues...I will keep you updated as I hear about the engineering progress.

    Tired-ly yours,

    GGrandmaJan replied to Haylen_WebMD_Staff's response:
    Oh Haylen,
    So sorry for all the problems. You poor gal. All you can do is keep us up-dated. We really appreciate all you do for us. I am just happy to know it isn't my antiquated dial-up.

    As of about 8:45 p.m.Pac Time it seems to be working. I know the exact time cause that is when DH left for the casino. Wish him luck. LOL.

    We are hoping for a better day tomorrow.

    You are welcome!

    6 am here - testing boards and looks like today will be better. But an even better fix is coming

    If anything takes the sting out of a "low-sleep" night it's my 6 year old snuggling on my lap as I type this

    Jenna291 replied to GGrandmaJan's response:
    Hi Haylen,

    Thanks for listening to us! Clearly we are lost without our posts! Your help is so appreciated and sugar smacks right back to ya - love that!!!!
