Ok I'm going to be leaving I village if this new layout is how it's gonna be. I can't read any reply to any post. And can't tell if I'm signed in or not. Obviously I am now. I would ask if this is the new layout, but I won't see your reply

You can hardly post anything. I had to take and cut out code just to make one ticker even plausible to post and I know HTML very well, so I assume others who do not might struggle. 255 limit is too restrictive IMO it should at minimum be 1000 so 1-2 tickers fit with some text or an image. IMO again there shouldn't be a restrictive limit because some people post sigs with their miscarriage tickers or anniversary tickers and their other kids, etc.. This really limits the creative expression behind the user.

We agree with you completely about the image restriction.  I ran into the same problem when trying to load my sig line.  I know this is something on the list to be fixed after the major fires are put out.  Hopefully it'll be fixed soon!

I love iVillage, but right now, I'm frustrated, too. I'm willing to give them the week to fix things. I have enjoyed this board with  you ladies, and I hope we can continue to connect on our journey to April 2013 and beyond.

Give it some time to be fixed :)  I know that IVillage was a great support for me through my losses and pregnancies.

Hi there,

I'm sorry that you are so frustrated right now.  Please know that the issues you are experiencing with not being able to read replies has been reported and our tech team is working feverishly to get it fixed.  It is a known bug and certainly not how things are supposed to be. 

Also, I wanted to share a link with you to our iVillage Help topic.  CD Jessica will be posting updates to the message board fixes there (and feel free to post any questions/comments/concerns there as well).
