I didn't want to let this go unanswered. I believe Jess said she'd share as soon as she gets more info on timelines/projects. I have also passed this on to her. :)

I do not think this will ever be fixed. The cost of the boards was lowered when they moved them inside. There is obviously no technical support team. The CMs are quitting...taking their payroll costs with them. There are enough hard core members to continue to provide content, so the ad dollars keep coming in, if maybe at a lower rate. I think IVillage has realized they can make as much money with a vastly inferior product. We stay because of the friendships we'vemade here, and we are obviously a loyal bunch. This is as good as I think it is going to get, and we who stay are proving to IVillage every day that they don't have to offer a quality product.

I was out last week (on what we'll call an 'adventurous' cross-country move) but I wanted to let you know that they are still working on the boards. I don't have an update myself, as I'm just back at my desk for the first time this morning and am not fully in the loop, but I can say that I know the plan is not to just let it remain as is. Things aren't all what they seem to be on the surface in that just because there is no obvious change, it doesn't mean iVillage is moving forward without any thought and/or concern to our communities. There have been a lot of changes amongst various departments in iVillage which have affected the end result, but we are still on the radar. I'm sure once Jess has something new to add, she will pop back in with an update.

Since we are 6 months into this tech nightmare- 6 MONTHS- it's hard to remain optomistic.

And add to that that Jess hasn't posted in 32 days.   Not encouraging.
