I'm assuming someone knows this, but just in case they don't, I cannot access about half of the threads on various boards, I get time outs and other errors when I click on a lot of the threads.

I have no idea what you're talking about. When you used to reply to someone's post it would automatically take you back to where you were before you posted a reply. Now it goes to the end of the conversation which means you now have to search backwards to continue reading.

The other problem I am having is I am trying to fix my siggy and it won't let me. It says someone already has my email address.. No kidding! I DO! it's never been a problem before.

For those of us who have been around here for years, it has been a disappointing trend to see the board virtually dying on the vine.  We've had 'posting contests' in the past to tally up to a certain number (in the thousands, btw) of total posts on the Fantasies board alone.  It's a shame, really, that it was once so vibrant and alive.  People could come here and find acceptance from others.  I know things have to change, but this hasn't been a positive trend for iVillage at all.  I know you are not to blame Thia, and you inherited a big challenge.  I wish you well, but it's never going to be what it once was to a lot of us.

Nhgal,

When I changed my preferences, I see now when I go to a board/topic the address in the bar above ends in #new so I know it takes me to the latest posts. You don't see that?

It's not just that. The boards have really gone downhill since all these supposedly "upgrades" happened. First it was the one a few years ago, then we all finally got used to it and they go and freakin' change it again. The pages load a lot slower, they don't go to the last read message like they used to even though it's set up for that. It's just a lot of things like that and it pisses people off.

What's the sense of coming here if you can't do anything like we used to.

Matt,

If you go to your profile, and my preferences, then chose the tab "Edit my preferences" , and make sure there is a check mark in the box "Sort topics by time of most recent post "

Let me know if that helps

Cmthia,

Will all due respect, the lack of posting on the board has little, if anything, to do with posters lacking power.  These boards have gone from extremely active and popular to a huge disappointment over the last 2-3 years.  I know because I've been around for a long time.  And each time there is some sort of "transition," things only seem to get worse and not better.  Clearly, there are numerous reports of missing posts with this latest move.  Additionally, the posts are not sorted by any logical manner anymore. 

Overall, extremely disappointing, and while I know, or would guess, that you're not making the decisions around there, I think you could escalate the disappointment that many of the posters feel.  Basically, these boards are becoming irrelevant, and I don't think that's what anyone wants.

Matt

Hi Loverwife,

Can you go over to Jess's update and let her know your issues? http://www.ivillage.com/forums/ivillage-women/around-ivillage/ivillage-h...

She wants those who can't see replies on their phones to email or pm her.

I am not able to see any of the replies to any posts on my phone...extremely annoying.  I didn't have this issue on the old boards.

Well many of our posters are on the east coast and have no power or are dealing with hurricane aftermath.

Stick around, it will get busier after they are back up and running.
