As you can see we are in the process of making some changes to the boards. Several things are being worked on right now but if you have questions, you can post here, email me at entcm@mail.ivillage.com or send me a PM. I'll do my best to assist you, get you the answers you need and make sure any errors or concerns make it on the "fix-it" list.

CD Jessica will be updating message board fixes over on our iVillage Help topic in this thread:
http://www.ivillage.com/forums/node/119781336
That's also a great place to leave any feedback/concerns/questions you may have.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, comments or issues. I'm here to help!

Brenda, regarding the posts that Chris cannot see - I can see them. In fact, I see all the posts/threads in the "fun and games" folder as well as all of them on the board. I hope that helps.

Hi Terre!

Just double checking here; I can see a number of game posts, but I have to admit, I'm not exactly sure if I'm seeing all there should be. For instance, the first one I see is "How prissy are you?" and it only shows two posts; the latest is 06/10/2012. The next one is titled Are You Iced Tea or Iced Coffee...and the latest reply on that one is dated 4/13/2012. Is that what you're seeing... and is it correct? I just assumed there were some more recent posts that didn't make it over yet.

The first post I see is "Re-posting Three Word Only" (dated 10-15-12) game which Chris and I play. The second one is "How Prissy Are You"  and I believe back then there was only one reply (other than my own).The rest of the posts seem accurate, we didn't get a lot of reponses back then. I didn't realize how old those posts are (which is why I requested this folder be eliminated).

Still can't get it to work.  :(  Patience, right?

Family is having a very hard time.  Moving in with my mom hasn't been as easy as I thought.  She isn't dealing with this well at all.  I knew this would be hard, but never dreamed it was going to be like this.  Jenna is dealing well though.  We have kept her schedule and things the same.  Not changing anything she is doing to keep things as normal as we can for her.  And my sisters.......Oh my.......let's just say Karma can't come quick enough!!!!!

Ahhh...ok, I'm not seeing the "Re-posting Three Word Only" discussion, but I am seeing other current posts in the rest of the floders. (And once all the fixes are in place, I'll take care of your request about the folder; as it is now, we want to hold off on making any additional changes that aren't urgent.)

Hmmm... are you getting some kind of error message when you try to upload a pic, or is the change just not sticking?

I think you're wise to keep things as normal as possible for Jenna; I just wish your sisters would wake up and realize that there is strength to be found in coming together as a family, especially for your mom's sake.  It's been my experience that adults often have a harder time coping with radical changes in the family structure because they're wrestling with their own feelings of guilt for not doing enough when they had the chance. Hang in there, sweetie; you are an amazing woman and a fine example for your daughter. I know your dad is proud of you!

I do get an error message, but don't ask me what it is right now.  LOL!  I can't remember 24 hours ago.  I will try again in a couple of days and see what happens.

I know there is a lot of guilt on both my sisters parts.  I made every effort to let them know that day before that things weren't looking good and they didn't deem it necessary to interupt their life at the time.  Plus one sister has been arguing with my dad and not spoken to him for two weeks except for a couple of nights before his passing and some harsh things were said.  I can't imagine living with that.  But still, this is a time to come together, not fall apart.  And I bet dad is not in the least bit happy right now.  As for mom, I am getting very concerned.  Took her back to the doc yesterday.  Her depression is getting worse.  Hopefully we can get some legal things done this week which I thing will give mom much less stress.

LOL... I totally know what you mean; if it wasn't for my computer, I wouldn't even know what day of the week it is most of the time! Tongue Out

My thoughts and prayers remain with you and your family. I hope things work out so it's less stressful for your mom and she can cope easier with those feelings of depression. I know that seeing her rally even a bit would ease some of your own worries. {{hugs}}

  • Here is the error message I keep getting when I try to change my avatar....
  • The signature is too long: it must be 255characters or less.
  • The file 060.jpg could not be saved, because it exceeds 2 MB, the maximum allowed size for uploads.
  • Failed to upload the picture image; the user_pictures directory doesn't exist or is not writable.
