    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

    Everything Changes!

    I logged on to WebMD for something today after being gone for many years (since late 2007 or so). Hi to all the oldtimers! (I see FCL - FunnyCoolLady is still around). I decided to stop by the old discussion boards where I wasted plenty of time in the past. Wow, how they've changed. They used to be hopping with discussion all day long and Caprice (I think I recalled her name correctly...) was kept busy moderating.

    I suppose that, like eveything in life, things change. there are probably facebook groups filling the same niche nowadays...

    Happy New Year!

    WebMD changed to this new exchange concept meant to enhance community here and things ground nearly to a halt. Its almost as though the spirit of Obamacare pervades....lol.

    All the moderators were "let go" (fired) a bit over a year ago and ever since then, things haven't been the same. Many of the boards I frequent have ground to a hald while others still get new postings but not as often, maybe once or twice a day.

    Hi, ESG (waving)! Pleased to see you back!
    There's nothing inherently dirty about sex, but if you try real hard and use your imagination you can overcome that.

    Caprice along with all the other moderators were fired about a year ago. She posted more about it on a private board I'm a member of.

    Not that mean ol Obamacare, again??? Damn, everyone wants the A.C.A., but no one wants Obamacare! Just ask the masses? They have proven their minds abilities, don't even realize they are and the same?


    Happy New Year, Kram!!!

    They got fired??? I never heard that? How horrible!!! Now I understand why everything seems so different? Wrong, what they, whoever they are, did!!! Bring them back!!!


    Can we start a new blog, one called, "Bring them back"? Maybe they would listen then?


    Anybody else feel that way? Do you want our moderators back? If enough do, we will see what we can get changed? The power lies with the people!


    I say; BRING THEM BACK!!!

    Ah, I didn't know that. It's a huge pity. It's almost as if WebMD has lost interest in their image these days when you consider how the boards were then and how they are now ...

    I agree. I used to love coming to these boards and see all the questions and answers. Now, they're so slow some of them rarely get any posts while other are lucky to get one or two new posts a day.
