Not that way. I'm cheating because I've created a new profile with my old user name, which ivillage.com never seems to have heard of before. (But I've pinched myself. I exist.)

Now, when they first flipped the switch, I couldn't do anything. I couldn't log in, couldn't create a new account (under this or any other name). But now I can create a new account and log in. I'm fairly certain this will cause no end of trouble when ivillage tries to integrate the former worthmore with the current one. But, hey, I'm not the one who tried to roll out a major system change waaaaaay before it was ready.

So, if your account hasn't been on ivillage.com (but rather ivillage.ca or ivillage.co.uk or ivillage.elsewhere) try creating a new profile. It took some persistance because I kept getting bounced from .com but eventually I got in.

I miss everyone.

Whew!!!!

I was worried for a minute.

As you can see, I am still here, (don't say drat) and still have my smiling golf ball. ;-)

I would be happy if they could just get the Nr of New Posts to show up.  I hate rechecking posts over and over.  ;-/

Glad you are back.

 

We only miss what could have been. I know I don't miss what it really was.

I'm so glad you responded. It's hard to tell when one is invisible, alone or just uninteresting. I should get my picture back. That might make things feel a little closer to normal. I'm a bit worried, though. The momentum of the board isn't what it was earlier this year. I imagine it naturally goes through highs and lows but I had about given up on getting back in. Who are we going to lose in this change? That's what I'm wondering. And I would never say drat re: you. We need as many different perspectives as we can get on our issues. Our blindspots get big in our affairs. We need lots of people looking from lots of different perspectives so we can see how big whatever we're fighting is. It's the only hope we have of wrestling it to the ground. So hooray for me that you're here.

Me too.

So far I see a BIG  W in your name. <frown> Frown

It says that you are "new" and you have 187 posts.

No idea if someone has added to the string of posts, unless you can remember what it was the last time you looked. Surprised

Take a chance and add you icon to your profile. (It used to be connected to Gravatar)

I can only imagine how much revenue is down due to lack of advertising hits since they made the change. It will get back to normal soon, I am sure.  Question is can they ever make it up for the savings in changing servers and software?

To ALL:  Post away.  The sooner you get back on the horse, the quicker you will get down the road to mental freedom. Smile

Glad to see you're here Worthmore.  It's very quiet around here and I'm missing everyone, too.  Hopefully it will get back to normal real soon.

Here, my dear! Still here! I couldn't get in for a couple of days, but still here. And not planning to leave anytime soon, 'cause I need this board.

It was my birthday yesterday and I wondered if xAP remembered. Probably not. Every day I still have to remind myself why I'm NC. But that's OK--whatever it takes. The worst is if I let myself have arguments with him in my head. That can unsettle me for hours afterwards. But I know I'm on the right path now. An honest life, and peace in my heart. I can't have the second without the first, and now I know it.
