Hi Jen! My understanding is that it will be phased out. The most important thing about the Forum is the people; we will still have those! :woohoo:

Do you know if we'll have access to it somehow? There's excellent information in the kids' section (probably in the adult section too, but I never visit there). Might we be able to have access to the archived stuff through a password?

I'm not sure, but I doubt it. When it's gone, it's gone. The information will build here fast, I'm sure. Plus, everyone is pretty quick with responses.

The old forum will be switched to 'read-only' mode in a few weeks, depending on speed of the transition. It will then be available for a year or more so that people can read the prior posts. This is the same procedure we used when transitioning from the first discussion group to the current one.

If you have ideas on how to make the transition go more smoothly, please send Sandi or me an e-mail.

Your username will appear in the box to the right. Is that what you mean by a signature?

No. In the old board, one can write a message that goes at the bottom of each post. Lots of people sign their names and then write their platelet counts, or their names and their kids' names, treatments, dates of dx, or a quote they like.

It's under Basics in the profile section. If you still have an account there, look at your profile and you'll see it at the bottom on the right.

I was wondering the same thing!

So, do we come here now to do our posting, or do/can we still post on the other forum?





Have a great day.

It looks like there is a signature capability in the new forum, but it hasn't been turned on. I've e-mailed Jeff who is in charge of the new web site and asked him to 'turn on' the signature capability.

I'll let you know what I hear back from him.

I appreciate your mentioning this. It is exactly why we have a transition and not just a switch.

You will be able to post to both forums for awhile (week or so). Then the old one will be switched to 'read-only' and you'll only be able to post to the new one. I'll post a message to both of the forums a few days before the actual switch.

Sandi and I have received a lot of questions and suggestions so we are making a list. If you have something you would like to put on the 'to do' list, please let us know.

I've added a new section at the top of the forum for questions about the new format. Please post any additional comments and information there. That way the subject can be separate from the ITP discussion.

Thanks.
