I just noticed on the main board page that there is a new channel... iVillage en espanol.  Am I just seeing this or is it new?

And when things are being removed so there will be room for the current stuff. It doesn't add up.

Hi,

Yes, it's a new channel. iVillage is starting a partnership with Telemundo (also in the NBC family), so we can share audiences. We'll be officially announcing it on iVillage this week, but we wanted to get the boards live before that.

Laughing

...keep going!

And the space issue? How is it that things are being added when there's no space for what we have.

Jess...I hope they don't think we're going to jump for joy over them taking the time to start something new when the boards are *still* in such a *huge mess*!!! Absurd!!!

Hi Shy —

We will never not create new content as needed (such as expecting clubs or good suggestions by members). The rub is that we have 15 years of data, with an obscene amount (90%) of it being ignored. The system drags because it has to go through all that data. If no one is using the data, it makes sense to lighten the load so that the data that is being used can be done so quickly and efficiently.

HTH!

Erin...Is the deletion of data script being run on a separate server? If not, it should be. That would leave another server freed up to allow fixes to the boards to be done. The dragging of the system is only one of the things that needs to be fixed. Now today I did not have to log in again and that was a nice surprise. This has happened before, though, and then the next time I come back to IV, I'm having to log in multiple times again. Most of the time after logging in the first time, I can refresh the page and I am indeed logged in. This trick doesn't work for everyone though. Could they at least fix that problem? That's a cookie issue, shouldn't be hard or time consuming to fix. Then there's the siggy problem. Mine is working okay and I never change it anymore, so it's still the same. That's not the case for a lot of people, though, as they're only seeing old siggys from last year. It's important to them. If they would fix things like this, it would give hope that they care about our boards.

Hi Donna,

I'm honestly not sure how they are running it. But I do know that they said they cannot change anything while the script is running, so no fixes will be done until the data deletion has been completed. However, I have inquired about what this entails exactly.

I know the login issue is in part to the slowness. Because it's two systems, it's not keeping up with each other due to one area lagging. We've always had an issue with the cookies not keeping for some members though, so I think that's just part of the original system (I know I've had people mention it from way back when I first started!).

I'm not sure what the signature issue is, if it's that it wasn't migrated or if that is what was migrated over, but I have a feeling that's part of the can't fix until the data deletion is done.

I'd be happy to help anyone one-on-one if they like. You (or anyone) can reach me at techtalk@mail.ivillage.com. :) Whatever I can do I'll try.

Thanks,

Erin

No, it doesn't help. If my closet is full and I can't add any new clothes to it, I purge what I'm not wearing anymore so that things fit. If I buy even more clothes to add to that closet that's already so full that it doesn't function, I'm going to make the problem worse, not better. The point is to get rid of things. WHY are you adding new clothes to the closet before the old ones are purged? Nothing makes sense anymore. I've been here a long time, and I have to say that there was a time when I didn't feel like things were so secretive and ridiculously run. I never felt lied to, or deceived, or diminished. About the time the L&S channel started getting messed with, all of the deception started. I'm guessing whoever started that fiasco is responsible for this mess as well.

Erin...Thank you very much for your reply! It helps us to not be ignored.

So, everything is tied up while the deletion of data script is being run. That has to mean they're not running it on a separate server. Are they near bankruptcy again like they were in 2000 - 2001?? Do they not have money for another server or for a larger server? While the data is being deleted, do they not have any techs working on anything else at all? Except for starting up a new channel that is!! Grrr!!

It's frustrating to us hearing that they were able to add another channel while nothing is being done to fix board problems. When things are explained to us, even though we can't do anything about it, it at least allows us to feel that they care about what is important to us long time loyal members.

Thank you again for trying to keep us informed as much as they'll allow you to inform us with what little information you are given. Anything new you hear coming down the pike, please pass it along to all of us no matter how small it may seem for we would like to know what is happening.
