    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,

    Please give us our old message boards back. I think you're going to lose a lot of users.

    Problems:
    * The newborn to 3 month board is missing.
    * The new format is hard to use--you can only see a couple discussions at once.
    * Our signatures are missing on replies, this is extremely helpful on the parenting boards especially.
    * The "popular" posts are old. Some of them are over a year old!

    Anyone else want to add what they have found?

    A lot of your posters have created groups on facebook and CafeMoms because of how much harder this is to read and post.

    you covered a lot of the major problems Jen__

    I feel like a lot of people got lost during the transition and never found the correct boards. Hardly anyone posts anymore.

    I'm kind of lurking here, but since no one is really posting anymore - they all left!!! I wanted come over here and complain, lol.

    I would really like an explanation as to why they felt the need to change it.

    I guess I will eventually see you all on FB or CM.
