    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

    Issues for Moderators - Multiple Postings and Dates on Posts
    davedsel57 posted:
    It appears there are multiple posts happening. Not sure if the member just is not sure their discussion posts and clicks the 'submit' button more than once or if the system has a 'glitch' causing multiple postings. It is getting quite confusing.

    Also, could a post be pinned for a while to encourage members to look at the upper right-hand corner of a discussion and see the date. Folks are coming on and replying to posts that are months, even years old hoping to get a reply from the original poster. In many cases, the original poster has not been back in the community for a very long time.

    Thank you very much.

    Thank you for raising this. We will look into it to be sure it is not a technical issue.
