Closing the boards?

A poster posted in a thread that the boards will be closed after the first of the year.  Do we know if this is true or not?  I am just wondering because if it is, and some of the busier boards and their members do not know, and want the chance to know how to get ahold of each other  off the boards, it would be really nice if they had a heads up and aren't shocked when they go to get on the boards after they have been shut down and have lost all their connections.

Hi Tracy -

As of this very moment, we have not been told that the boards are closing. Right now, it's business as usual. We have been condensing boards so maybe that's what the poster is referring to?

Thanks,

I did notice a few boards had been condensed, but I know that is normal practice. I just thought I'd check, her exact words to a post about if people were still around was "Since they are closing Ivillage after the first of the year, it seems somewhat pointless, but I do meander over occasionally. " And I didn't feel like asking where she got the information from.

Erin, the poster in question is referring to the article in mediabistro.com that was cited here a couple of weeks ago, the one that says that iVillage is being incorporated into today.com

Here is the thread, in case you want to read it or say something. I think her comment that the boards are closing has alarmed a few people.

Hi — I was out, sorry I haven't responded. I believe Melissa responded to the thread.

Thanks! :)
