    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

    These new boards are too confusing.

    What board is this..?? I can't find my personals, digests, etc that I had. I need help. How can I add a exchange to me. The loong list they have will take a whole day. I still don't understand. What is the the things that says.. Poll 1, poll 2, poll 3. And how can anyone be a moderator. If anyone can explaining in simple terms without the maze that they have.

    Thank you

    Hi Cindigal,

    You have found your way to our Stroke Exchange; is this where you intended to be?

    If not, you may be able to found your community via this page . Or let me know where you used to post and I'll point you there. :-)

    Your personal profile information did not migrate over. We did post about this on all of our boards more than once over the past couple of weeks, suggesting our members save the information.

    Our digests have gone by the wayside.... for now at least. We hope to see their return in the future.

    In the meantime, you can add your favorite exchanges to your watchlist by bookmarking it (click on the link on the upper right). When you do that, you can easily get to it again every time you come in to our Exchanges (they'll be listed on the left under 'My Exchanges'.

    You can also add individual discussions to your watchlist so you can keep an eye on any new responses. And that information can be emailed to you once per day or you can click on your watchlist on the left to find that information.

    As for the polls... many of our members enjoy polls so when they post a discussion, they now have the option of creating a poll for others to vote on. But you don't have to if you don't want to. Most people will use discussions for just that.... discussions. :-)

    I understand change can be difficult but we'll soon settle in and figure it all out together. :-)
