This helped me and another posted that it worked for her too. Don't get to the board by using your favorites. Go to www.ivillage.com  and get there the long way, then resave the board to your favorites. Log in like normal. This worked for me and I've been allowed to start new threads and post on some of the existing threads (but not others). I still can't see anyone's signatures or pictures but I guess they're working on that.
Hopefully this works for you ladies and we can get our board back up to speed. I know some of us are approaching our 20w u/s and we don't want to miss any gender announcements!
Thinking of you ladies!
