    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.

    Okay, so there's been (yet another) huge upheaval here.

    What I am curious about is whether or not having the additional site to meet on at medhelp.com is actually helpful or harmful. If it's more harmful than good, I'm going to close it up. At this point, I think that things are going the wayside.

    Do you have an opinion? Is having the additional forum helpful or harmful? Should we leave it up or take it down?

    I think it's important that we have another website to fall back on if things with WebMD go under. It appears you are able to moderate the forum, right? So that in itself is actually a step up from this website where there is no moderation. Even though drama took place over there too, it's a safer place because you're able to delete threads/responses. Are you also able to ban trolls who are just showing up to cause problems?
