    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

    Our Community Users have some great insight into the variety of subject areas within WebMD Community; it is one of the many reasons our users come back—we all learn from one another.

    In the pursuit of learning as much about a subject area as possible, at the bottom of most thread pages you will now find a module titled <More from WebMD Related to this Discussion>. This module will display some of the terms used within the thread, and link you to more information about the subject from WebMD Health Centers and articles.

    Dear Olivia: This is a terrific idea, it can be difficult to give enough information within our word limit. It would be a benefit to have links to more info sources. Also, for those readers who ask questions far off topic (eg eye or derm questions on the Women's Health Exchange) the key words in their query might lead them to a better reply.

    In Appreciation,
    Jane
