    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!

    Have you been glued to the TV or computer watching the Olympics?

    I don't usually watch half of these sports throughout the year, but something about the Olympics makes me really interested. I just can't get enough! Love the personal stories of the athletes.

    Do you have a favorite sport, athlete, team or story? What about Oscar Pistorius? The fastest man with no legs!

    We have a quiz that is updated with new questions as the games proceed - Test What You Know About the 2012 Olympics - Guess I need to watch even more, scored a 61%.
