I am so disappointed in I Village.  I used to come to these boards all the time and I made so many friends and loved to chat and discuss weight loss and fitness issues.  It was so much fun.  Then they decided to revamp the forum and all heck broke loose.  We started having trouble logging in and staying logged in.  I could read the boards, but as soon as I tried to log in to respond to someone I would get knocked right back out.  I have read that some others are still having problems.  Now everyone is gone.  There are hardly any posts.  I guess everyone got tired of the issues signing in and have gone elsewhere.   It's such a shame.

Hi Carol,

I know, it's been rough. Aside from the issues I find people moved towards facebook, which isn't where I want to be. I don't want all my friends and family knowing everything, kwim?

I did hear that they are working on a few issues, so maybe we'll see a bump back up in traffic? Hopefully? :)

Oh, I've actually asked if we could remove that folder since it's not being used often and people don't scroll down. Why don't you start your journal up in this folder? I'm not sure if they'll be able to keep specific posts or not, so it's a perfect time to start fresh! :)

I would like to say that after being away for a while, I find the forum working much, much better!  Whatever they did to fix it, worked.  The only problem I had ths morning was when I hit post and thought it didn't go through so I hit it 2 more times, and posted 3 times.  LOL  Now I've learned to be a little patient and give the post time to go through. 

So I'll be around more now!

That's awesome Carol! I've missed you (and everyone else!). I know they are still working on things, it's a slow process and a whole new team. I can't imagine having to wade through other people's programming missteps while also trying to do your regular stuff. Not a position I'd want to be in!!

If you need help with anyting, let me know. There is a new section in your profile that shows where you've recently posted/commented in addition to the posts you've started.  It can be found here: http://www.ivillage.com/forums/user/. It doesn't show going all the way back, just from when they turned it on, but it helps a ton while they figure out the notifications. (It's also in international date format, i.e., 08-11-13 vs 11-08-13 - but my understanding is that they are still tweaking things.)
