    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

    Please see the new Men's Sexuality exchange. It is suggested that this exchange be geared to men's health issues.

    How does one go about contacting an individual member to continue a more personal conversation? How do you go about exchanging email addreses?

    Would mind posting a safe email address in your "Story" section of your profile?
    I've posted mine and gotten some great new friends off here.
    I get NO spam from posting it here.

    I guess you would just ask them on the board for their email contact info...

    I too, have posted my email in my profile story. (I wish everyone would at least add something in their stories..) Several have sent me emails, and we have exchanged back and forth that way too. I may sometimes be slow to respond via email, but I do enjoy hearing from others.

    I do wish the new board had real time chat. I know some of us would be to addicted to ever leave. But it would give us even a closer bond to each other I think.
    JackOJoe replied to RuBare2's response:
    You should be careful about posting any contact information in a public area. You never know who is going to get it or what they will use it for. We can probably trust each other on here but unfortunately there are way too many unscrupulous people out there.
    Alexco35 replied to JackOJoe's response:
    I agree with you jack, thats why I removed my email from my story...but I wont mind giving it out if anyone asks on the board...

    I too have posted my email address in my story. I don't mind being contacted by others from here. It is nice to have discussions from guys on here, and possibly create new bonds and friendships.
