    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

    Hi members!

    I'll start by saying that I know everyone would like the old boards back, but they are no longer available. And honestly, they were not working well anymore, which was why we needed to implement something new.

    We want to make the reading and interacting on the new forums less confusing, and in order to do that we need you to tell us exactly what you find the hardest to do. Give us as many concrete details as you can.


    • Is it hard to read because your board/conversations move too fast?
    • Is it because the What's Happening Now feed only shows what's new?
    • Is it because you can only see 15 posts at a time on the What's Happening Now page?
    • Is the page too cluttered?

    Tell us exactly what makes it hard or confusing and how you'd like it to behave.

    We will pass all of your comments and suggestions along to our engineering and management teams and keep you informed about what changes are coming.

    Take care,
    Annie

    I find it hard to read in part because part of the last reply to the post (not the original post) is shown. I don't always remember what the post was about so I have to guess what it was about from the response. I think that the original post should be shown. We all know that new replies have been posted when the post shows up at the top of the list. I also find it difficult and distracting because part of the response is shown. It takes up room that isn't really necessary. I find the page too cluttered.
