    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

    You now need to type in the characters to create emoticons. Here's a few I've found that are working:

    • Happy - colon right parenthesis :)
    • Wink - semicolon right parenthesis ;)
    • Raspberry - colon dash small p :-p
    • Laugh - colon dash capital D :-D
    • Blank Stare - colon dash line :-|
    • Too Cool - capital B dash right parenthesis B-)
    • Sad - colon left parenthesis :(
