Since the change I have not been able to load the "edit my preferences" page via Google Chrome or IE9. It is extremely annoying to me because when the change happened my new signature and tickers were lost and it reverted back to a signature from 17 months ago.
I'm a member of an Expecting Club but without signatures I find it impossible to get to know other members without seeing them, how far along they are in their pregnancy, etc.
I was an extremely active member of Ivillage with over 14,000 posts until 2010 when the first set of changes ruined the boards. Our entire EC turned play group moved to Facebook and while I have found an EC on fb for this pregnancy I REALLY miss the old Ivilage. I can't imagine why you haven't tried to go back to the "old" message boards when they were so popular at that time. Most of the boards have literally closed or are dead now. It's horrible.
