      You ARE good material, Parla. Your posts have been very helpful.

      You've met the minimum of 150 total posts and you are posting frequently enough for that requirement. All that you need is to be a member for 6 months You will be elibible on August 20, 2011 assuming that you still meet the "5 posts per week" requirement during that time.

        I had knee replacements in 2009, I greatly appreciated the help that I received from this site, but now I wish to unsubscribe. How do I do that?
        Thanks,

        @hess:

        Hess, I'm glad that BoneSmart has helped you. You will always be a BoneSmart member and can come back online and be active any time you wish. But, at your request, I canceled the weekly notifications you were receiving about new posts. You should not receive any further messages from BoneSmart. You could have done the same by using the User Control Panel link at the top right of the page.

        Best wishes to you for an enjoyable life!!

        Tashia, I have to apologize! We have been so busy with the forum and the changeover that we neglected to notice that you are now eligible for the BoneSmarties Club! I'm glad you would like to join and I'll take care of getting you all signed up. You will receive an email from me no later than tomorrow with some additional information.
