    Hello all!

    Hi there. I'm the mom of a 4 year old and 2 year old and am the new producer for this site. Mom forums have been incredibly helpful to me over the years as I've dealt with TTC, pregnancy and parenting. I've met some wonderful moms (and dads). I am excited to be here and look forward to getting to know all of you.
    Oh and feel free to give me feedback about the moms site and forums. Have a good day!

    Hi, Kristi,

    Why are the dads in parentheses?  Of course, more moms than dads post, but why not call the section "Parents?"  We've brought this up before, but it fell on deaf ears.  I hope you'll consider changing it.

    GL in your new position!

    Welcome!
    Can you please get someone to fix Boston Moms for Google Chrome? Ever since the Globe split from Boston.com the forums have looked totally messed up on chrome, if they even work at all.

    Thanks!

    They're all messed up for lots of people.  I can see them on my Mac, but not my PC.  Just a bunch of links that go nowhere.

    I can see them at home but not at work. Weirdness.

    I use Chrome and haven't had a problem at all.  The BDC forums software is the quirkiest I've ever experienced!

    Re: Hello all!

    It's really hit or miss.  Kristi, I would like the ability to like posts like they have on other forums.  I would also like more content over here -- I know it was summer, but there was about three weeks where the links on the main page were just the same thing.  I think it's really nice that BDC supports local bloggers, but I think we could have maybe a few fewer links to parenting blogs and more to resources around town, news & events, that kind of thing.  Also, it would be nifty if the "last updated" information on the Most Recent Discussions worked consistently.  The count is usually correct, but the "last updated by name is usually a few hours out of date. 


    I also think it would be nice if BDC would push out a banner when you're going to make changes to the page/navigation. 

    And for the love of God and all that is decent and holy, please stop linking to Mom's topics from whatever troll-gateway/main page you guys link our posts to.  This is generally a happy, productive place and that just kills the whole thing (witness the BF thread).  It's the internet, it's a free country, I get it, but must we set up a neon blinky sign to light the internet trolls' way?

    Unless it's Friday, then link away.  Trolls are Good Friday Fun.

    Re: Hello all!

    Kristi, welcome, sorry if it seems like you are getting a to do list right away, but honestly, the globe should do a story about us! I know so many of these women from the wedding boards and we have "graduated" to TTC, Pregnancy and now babies. It's a real, genuine and special community.

    My cousin is now planning a wedding and I was so bummed the wedding boards aren't what the once were and she won't have quite the same community I had.

    Re: Hello all!

    I agree with ml! This board is definitely unique in that we've really "grown" together and even have made a few "real life" friends from these boards.

    I also second the "like" feature - at the very least we need that option for Lemon's posts. :-)

    Re: Hello all!

    Hi Kristi - I'm a relative newcomer, but I'd second the request to change the forum to Parents. I've been so impressed with the intelligent, thoughtful women I've encountered on here, but the fact that this is just a Moms forum (and there isn't even a corresponding one -- that I can find -- for dads) is just so strange to me. It seems to suggest pretty blatantly that women are the only ones concerned with these topics, and that's just not true (and pretty backwards for 2011).

    Sorry, I know this wasn't your doing! That's all the feedback I have -- otherwise, this is a great site!

    I agree that it should be called Parents.  We even have a couple of dads that post.

    Ditto calling it "Parents", and everything ML said.

    ETA: And, hi.   :)

    So, i"m confused. The forum IS called Parents...or are we talking about something else?

    Re: Hello all!

    That's true -- these forums are titled "Parents".  BUT the area on Boston.com where you find the forums is called "Moms", and that has been a point of contention for some time now, since moms are not the only parents who benefit from the articles, links, etc. that appear in addition to the forums.  As we see here, a number of dads are also very active in this "Moms" community.  

    Just to clarify the points made above.  :)

    The link/path does say Parents, but see "Moms" at the top of this page?

    Jen and Kristi, thanks for bringing this and the other issues to your team!

    Jen and Kristi, I can't no longer post using my smart phone.  Do you know why that is the case.

    There's a Droid user and Blackberry user in CC that just commented this morning that they've never been able to post from their smart phones and are wondering if it's "them" or BDC, too.

    Re: Hello all!

    That's an Apple issue I believe.  iPhone doesn't and, Steve Jobs has been very clear, won't support Java and Flash.  And I think these boards use both.  I've given up on trying to use my i-stuff to respond.
