This site is simple to use (minimal topics) and covers most things I am interested in. If you are looking for a site for mothers there are many out there. There aren't a whole lot of options for women who want to connect with other women but aren't mothers. I think mothers tend to follow the crowd more often than non-mothers so I'm not surprised traffic on sites focused on moms is better.

There could be some improvement here as I'd love to get email notices with my replies. I made a suggestion to Customer Service and they said the notifications are coming. I did notice on one of the boards there is a manual way to get them but it really isn't that big of a deal for me so I'll just wait.

Happy that it works for you, Owaitress, but most of us have been suffering with serious technical issues ever since the latest board reformat. It is no longer simple to use for many, many people. For example, it took me five tries to get logged in here today, and any posts that express discontent, including resignations of our Community Leaders have been sumarily deleted.

I get that. iVillage doesn't want its dirty laundry hanging in the wind.... many of us are just mourning the loss of the communities we built together.
