Off-Topic Forum

The MPIP Off-Topic Forum is a community bulletin board that provides the melanoma community with a safe space to share experiences and to give and find support from others who can relate to having or caring for someone with a melanoma diagnosis. Please note: if you have an urgent question about melanoma to ask the community, visit the main MPIP Forum.

MPIP is the oldest and largest community of people affected by melanoma hosted through the Melanoma Research Foundation. It is designed to provide support and information to caregivers, patients, family and friends. Once you have been touched by melanoma—either as a patient or as a family member or friend of a patient—you become part of a community. It is not a community anyone joins willingly. But if you must be part of this group, you will find no better place to find the tools you need in your journey with this cancer, and the friends who can make that journey more bearable.

The information on the bulletin board is open and accessible to everyone. To add a new topic or to post a reply, you must be a registered user. Please note that you will be able to post both topics and replies anonymously even though you are logged in. All posts must abide by MRF posting policies.

 I really can't see why.  He seems like such a nice fellow.

The once dynamic community has left. Some return in dribs and drabs and go away again.  It sure is pretty, but it doesn't have the sense of "being" that the old board did.

The chat room is difficult and now hardly ever used, but it sure is pretty.

It's no longer easy to look at posts and scan replies, but it sure is pretty.

Someday this may develop a "community" feel but it won't be the one we were used too. 

I've made a lot of friends here who are now drifting.  There are a few who post now and then.

It's just another cookie cutter corporate identity site "sanitized" for better appeal to the large donors. "Look what fabulous things we do for patients and caregivers"

Just my humble opinion.

It's about kickin' Melanoma's butt! "Meh. Get on with it. Do not feed rabid monkeys. To fear is one thing. To let fear grab you by the tail and swing you around is another." in memory of NicOz

So Bonnie,

Posting from PhotoBucket...

I went to share and direct link for layout pages and copied the http stuff.  Then I opened the little image icon next to the smiley and pasted into the URL box.  Then (since my pic was giant!), I had to do a redo so  I adjusted the height to 500 and it automatically adjusted the width and hit okay.  (I don't know what the other stuff does.  I will futz with it later as I gotta go and do my P90X workout now so I can hurt.

But I am gonna hit the spellcheck button 'cos it is also nifty and new.

  

 HMMM- so futz isn't a real word?  Who knew.

Take good care, K.

You thought they were collecting the garbage when they went down the aisle with a plastic bag in their hands repeating, "You're trash, you're trash, you're trash" ?
