    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 have a 1-Year-Old and endless questions?
    Welcome! Join the group to learn, laugh and stay on track with your 1-year-old's growth and development.

    OT Admins?

    I don't really understand the concept of site admins on this new format of WebMD. It lists that megbrubaker and princessbootz are our administrators, and yet neither of them have posted for 2-3 months and we have had that same message about spring coming on the top of the board all summer. I am pretty sure that megbrubaker is on the next board now, so why don't they assign someone new? Anyone know anything about it, or what their duties are? I know I probably need to email WebMD, but after seeing the spring message for the millionth time I was just wondering.

    I also think they need a way to clear people out of the member directory as their children grow. There are a lot of people on the directory that have moved up and not posted here in months. It would make it easier to use if a person got dumped after X number of months of inactivity. They can always re-join a group if necessary.

    I'm the admin for the 2 year board. There's really not much that an admin can do. Basically, I can control the exchange announcements, the description of the exchange and the color of it. You can also promote others to be admins or demote yourself. The WebMD administrator can also do the same things --- and probably a few more.

    From my understanding, they are still making changes to the new exchanges. And I'm certain they would love some feedback on things such as cleaning up the member directory. BTW, have you ever seen some of the member created boards? I think people get confused with starting a post vs. starting an exchange, lol!

    Yeah I've seen some of the member created boards and think they are funny. One is like Emily's stomach ache or something like that. Poor confused people!

    Yeah and there's one called OMG Aliens and OMG Zombies, and Four year old's teeth turning brown. Like, really, I hated when WebMD changed the format, b/c it was different and everyone left, but it really wasn't THAT hard to figure out how to use. I noticed that on the preggo boards the admins really get into the discussion (because I lurk alot), and I think one of the boards has critque WebMD Wednesday. I would like at least one of those b/c I have a LOT to say.
