    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

    Did you know that one has to open a discussion and reply that way by pressing the submit button.

    When I was trying to reply by just looking at the front page or current post and not opening the whole thing, this site will no longer let you "submit". I tried this the other day and it didn't work then either.

    For example yours on the time capsule, I didn't open it to read it, I press more then read it, replied to it and pressed submit. It never took. But if I opened it up to read all of it and then replied, then submitted it, it works.

    We should be able to reply to any posts without opening it up if it has many replies wouldn't you think? Deb

    I've been experiencing the same problems, along with losing posts again. I also see double and triple postings in all the communities I frequent. Started for me on Halloween. Hope we can get rid of those ghosts soon.

    Thank you for giving me the heads up! We are aware that the gremlins are at work and trying to resolve.

    I appreciate any/all detailed info about problems. If you experience again, please let me know what browser you are using as well (Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, etc.).
