We reconsidered! A couple months ago, late February to be exact, The National Academy of Hypothyroidism announced that we would be closing the forums. Well, March came and went and the forums still stood. We are nearing the end of April and have decided that we were wrong. We will not be closing the forums after all! Some of you are probably breathing sighs of relief and maybe others are a little perturbed at our indecisiveness (we apologize), but we’re sure all of you are wondering, “What made them change their mind?”
One of our big reasons for closing the forums because we felt it would be slightly redundant with the launching of our Facebook page. However, a few of you consistent forum writers pointed out to us that, although it is a big site, not everyone enjoys or even has a Facebook page. We understand and respect your wishes not to join a site in order to share your knowledge and questions with us. Although the forums aren’t closing, if you do have a Facebook, we suggest you take a look at our page and all of the information we share. Also, feel free to let us know what other information you’d like to see on the page, as well as here.
Don’t worry, the forums remaining open doesn’t mean that we won’t be adding new features like we originally discussed!
