    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

    Qs. re allowed topics?
    hootyowl2 posted:
    I have not been on WebMD much for some time, so the rules may have changed and I probably forgot them anyway. I was just wondering what kinds of topics are allowed ? Can we discuss the new healthcare disadvantages, or can we post related links ?

    If there is a link on these pages, I have not found it. Sometimes links are in very obscure places and in very pale print, so I miss them. I guess they do not want people to find them.

    Hooty, the rules haven't changed. As far as I know you can post any links. You just can't mention DR names. If you succeed in posting a link let me know How ya did it. I'm on a new Laptop & for some reason can't post links. There is a tab above the reply boxes & I have used it, but to no avail. A window pops up asks me to enter the URL address clik OK & it's gone. WebMD did have a link to help us understand Obamacare a few mths ago. If you use the WebMD search bar you may be able to locate the Info.

    The Links to WebMD's Rules are posted in Blue letters at the bottom of this page.
