    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,

    Dear Members,

    At 12:00 PM Eastern Time tomorrow (Thursday, Feb. 25), our WebMD message boards will go to Read-Only status while we port over the past year?s content into our new WebMD Health Exchange. This means that you will be able to read messages that have already been posted, but you won?t be able to post new messages.

    Please be sure you have a support plan in place if you need support during this time.

    At some point, the boards may go completely dark for a couple of hours. During this time, if you need extra support you can reach out to our moderator team by writing to ExchangeWatch@webmd.net, understanding that that they are not Health Professionals and so cannot answer any medical questions. Please keep those for when our Exchanges launch.

    On Friday evening after 6:00 PM ET, the WebMD Health Exchange should be open and ready for posting. Later today, our moderators will be providing you with links to the Exchanges which correspond to your current boards. Be sure to save those links so that you can easily find your friends in the new community site.

    However, if you forget to save the links and you?ve already bookmarked your current boards/added them to your browser's favorites, your bookmarked links should redirect you to Exchanges.

    We look forward to seeing you all in the WebMD Health Exchange!

    Your WebMD Community Staff
