I'm going to add my 2 cents here about the message boards. (Let's hope I don't fall off the soapbox!) I do not understand why iVillage cannot go back to a more simple time. When we had the old board format (of a few years ago), we could hardly keep up as cls. Now hardly anyone is interested in our boards and frankly, I've pretty much lost interest in mine. I've been here for 14 years - it has become a way of life. And I miss my boardies. I don't think the problems going on now with our message boards are going to be solved any time soon. If at all. iVillage IS the message boards. The boards came first and then the people came in droves. There have been way too many changes over the years - most have not "panned out." We need a more simple format. Facebook draws in boat loads of people and we could do the same. There's no friends list - We were strangers who came and together we formed a bond that all the Facebooks in the world cannot do. I'm weary of wondering when things will be "fixed" and of wondering if we'll have message boards at all one day.
