Well!!! I seem to remember some ancient Popeye cartoon – in which Olive Oyl – when asked what she thought about Popeye replied, “Uhmmmm. He’s LARGE!?” Guess that’s where I am with THE NEW AND IMPROVED FORUM at the moment.

My thoughts and questions:
I have asked the powers that be if our profiles and pics will be returning. They are checking. Clearly, some of us have very long histories and it is more than a little work to replace them.
Badges. I know some MPIP peeps were fans of these. But, “remission”?????? Unfortunately, that’s not a term applied to melanoma. The “powers” will be changing the “remission” badge to “NED”. So that’s good. As for me, I’m waiting for the day we can click on a “CURED” badge!!! Right?
The return of the ‘word’ style typing tools will be nice. We had them for many years – then a couple years ago they disappeared with no warning – never to return – until today.
Busy. Twitter/FaceBook lite – is it??????? Or in the words of our wise mouse – New Coke? Coke Zero? BAHAHA! Whatever it is. C’est la vie. We will get used to it. Small bit of irony for this roll out…. It seems that the last two days that this current iteration of MPIP posts reaches back to, was the time of a website update as well. Check out these posts by some of my gang back in the good old days/albeit dark ages of melanoma – Jag, Charlie S, Yawn – https://forum.melanoma.org/recent-topics/page/1186/
Pages for different categories of posts may help some find what they seek. Though most of us learn from the whole. The search button seems to work better than before, so that is nice.
What do you melanoma peeps think of it????????????????
What ev. We will adapt. That is something all melanoma peeps and their loved ones are good at. No matter the “format”, this forum is filled with smart, caring, melanoma wise peeps. We are individuals, gathered here as a team, with a common cause and determination. No web design boxed us in before and it won’t now!!! Love and hugs to all of you. les
Not liking the new format at all. Was an exercise in frustration to even reply to you Celeste! As with every other format change over the years, I am concerned other long termers will just go away. Yes, I will adapt, and while fuming trying to teach this old dog more new tricks, raising my blood pressure just to say “hey I’m still alive” I’ll claw my way in here again! I’m still pissed they took out the live chat…and that’s been years! Anyway, I hope others will fight through it, and stay in here as well, but some will undoubtedly go away, as in every other “upgrade?!?”.

Took me a minute to figure out how to reply to YOU!!! HA! Crazy every time, isn’t it? GUUURRRRL! That chat room was a CRAAAAZY place! I’m not sure I was ever brave enough to comment in it back then, but I sure laughed a lot. Glad you are hanging in here with me. Some days I’m not sure I should…..but so far, I am! Wishing happy holidays to you and yours!! love, c
Yeah Celeste, I still read everything here everyday. I still learn more from you than anyone else ever. The time , energy, compassion, research, and devotion to others you always make time for is beyond amazing. Been a little slow in here this year, but it’s been a weird year for everyone. I still get biopsies regularly, but still holding at 14 primaries. Covid struck some family members on the mainland in past couple of months, but so far they’re holding strong…so there’s that that everyone is dealing with too. Ready for 2021 already so I can just get on with the routine cutting without freaking out about being in a dr.s office!

Selfishly hoping you never stray too far away from us.
casagraysonParticipantI always have to wonder why things need to be “improved” when they were working pretty well…

Adapt and adjust. Something we all have a lot of experience with this year.
Wow, this is the new improved version? Interesting….I guess it will take some time getting used to. Was wondering since so many are viewing this thread, does anyone have contact with Mike’s family if he is having a hard time posting. I seem to remember that someone was in contact with his wife at one point. Love to know how he is doing as would many many here. Mike, if you are reading this, we love man!!!
