    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

    It's been suggested that we leave a space between the start of a post and the triggering part.

    Write something innocuous in the first line. then leave some spaces between in and the subject matter. this should take care of accidentally triggering someone.

    Love the penguin one especially! Though I must admit there's something adorable about the capybara.

    Cute! At the aquarium in the town I live there are penguins and now my daughter is so obsessed with them! Every time I put her in the car she starts yelling, "Ping-gin, ping-gin, ping-gin!" because she hopes I am taking her to see the penguins. I ended up getting myself a season pass (she is free) so we can keep going back.

    ROUS'S? I'm LOVING that!! The Princess Bride is my favorite movie. The absolute BEST of all time. But now I can't look at the ROUS'S in the Fire Swamp as the bad guys...they're sooooo cute in those pics...
