    WHAT? NEW message boards?

    Dr. Leslie, I am in hopes of you maybe explaining that a little more? What is going on here? Why the change in the first place?

    Have we done something wrong? I'm not sure I'm going to like this? Can anyone explain this to me?

    atti_editor responded:
    Hi Dennis,

    The new message boards will launch later this summer. They are a new and improved version of what you have now and will come with better ways to search for topics and conversations, and the ability to add tags to more easily find and filter your posts. They will also address the posting problems that many members have been experiencing.

    This change is not in response to anything that you or any member has done wrong but is a positive change to help improve the communities and all that they have to offer.

    We will be able to share more information with you in the coming weeks, but if you have any more questions or concerns please don't hesitate to contact us at [email protected]

    Yours in health,
    Addie -- WebMD Message Boards Management

    Thanks for the response, Atti_editor! So good to know that the boards aren't going away, and that WebMD is still committed to supporting them and improving them. I'd been beginning to wonder if the communities were slowly dying from lack of use, but with better support and a better interface, perhaps they can enjoy a resurgence and we can help more people.

    Viva la renaissance!

    Thank you so much Addie! I am sorry for not seeing your response earlier! (I do that sometimes, just ask anyone here). LOL! And, as Roh says, I also appreciate the work you guys do to keep these boards hot, and happening! Hopefully, with the new improvements, we can help many more that need to come here for help, or reassurance. We do love to help!

    Thanks again, Addie!

    Thanks Dennis and Roh (and everyone else here)! We are excited to finally be able to share these improvements with you and will be sure to share more information as we get closer to the new boards
