Question from an lesbian life board oldbie

Hi all,

I used to haunt the lesbian boards at iVillage quite a lot in the 00's.   I had a devil of a time figuring out where the lesbian life board went today.  I found it by searching for "lesbian" in messages and found a link to it.  I notice that this the link said "private media" in it and I think that may be why I couldn't find it by browsing on the message boards page?

Any how my main question is if the old "lesbian issues" board of yore still exists?  Anyone know?  Basically I'm trying to figure out when I first showed up at iVillage.  I think it was the late 90's but it might have been in the early 00's.  I was hoping to search the board archives like I used to do and find my first post.  But much of the old stuff seems to be gone or hiding from me.  Is there any way to access that old historical archived data?

When they changed the boards back to an old format, things didn't work the way they should have, and many people left out of frustration - Sometimes it's really hard to log in. They also "killed" some boards - They took down the craft board I visited often - My friend was the CL there until she resigned just before moving to Hawaii.

Anyway, under your picture it says you joined on November 3, 1998, but it may have been earlier than then. It says I joined on October 6, 2001, but I know for a fact that I joined in the late 90s - That's when I met one my friend mentioned above. Most of the people on that board were invited to a gathering at a memeber's house, and that was in 2000. I also called her on September 11, 2001, so I couldn't have met her in October, when I called her in September.


You were a CL on one of the lesbian boards, right? I made a few friends on this board, but I lost track of all but 2 (they have been together for about 17 years) - I'm in almost daily contact with at least one.

By the way, you went by several user names similar to your current one, but with different numbers. I'm currently skimming old posts, but it's hard since some are missing text - You don't see what the first message is. Also, some posts are completely missing, including many by and about me. LOL
