It's based on the number of posts you have. As your post count increases you bed will change...

How does one go about closing an account?

Threads are locked for various reasons. Sometimes they're locked because they're duplicate threads (these generally contain links to the larger, more pertinent discussions). Sometimes they're locked because emotions are running high and the moderators want to give folks a breather so they can calm down and then they're reopenned. Sometimes they're locked because they have drifted from the primary purpose of the board (marital intimacy). Sometimes they're locked for good because the discussion is more of an argument than a discussion and is unlikely to ever be resolved. Often it's a combination of several issues.

If you feel that a topic has been wrongly locked, you can pm any of the moderators (who will share your PM with the other mods) or email the OG at og@themarriagebed.com.

It is the number of times the thread has been looked at. It is NOT an accurate number of different people looking, however. For example, I may look at a thread once and then come back to it later, which means the view count has gone up, even though nothing new may have been added to the thread. So, what you see is just a rough ballpark of the number of people who have viewed a thread, and should not be taken as accurate.

"watching a topic"

Hi!

What does it mean if I am "watching" a topic? How do I find topics I'm "watching"?

In your profile, you have an option to be alerted if someone replies to a post you are watching. By watching a topic, you are asking the boards to alert you if someone replies to that post.

Often times, when I post a reply to a topic, it gets posted to the thread upwards to 3 or 4 pages after the particular comment to which I am responding. By the time it gets added to the thread, my comment is totally irrelevant to the discussion. Why for is this?

Your post will be posted in order of time posted. If you are responding to an old post, your post might come after several others have posted. The other problem might be that your time stamp is incorrect. Click on the "Profile" link at the top of the page and scroll down to "Timezone:" Greenwich Mean Time

This is why quoting a bit of what you are replying to is helpful.

You can look at the time and date stamp to get an idea of how old something is, and if it's going to be separated from what you are replying to.

This might be addressed elsewhere, but I couldn't find it.

On each specific forums page, to the left of each thread topic name is some icon. For announcements, it's an "i" in a triangle, for stickies, it's a push pin, and for most topics, it looks like a sheet of paper or post-it note.

Just curious...what does it mean when that sheet of paper is shaking and moving in and out (as opposed to not moving)?

It means it's a fairly active topic. There have been a number of posts to that topic in a certain period of time.

Just ask the OG.

Click on "new messages" above in the lighter blue bar
Then click on the "New PM" button
Then click on "og" in the box on the right and click "Add"
Type your message requesting a new username in the message window, including the name you want
Click "Submit" at the bottom

Congratulations, you've just sent your first PM to the Oversight Group

Hi I am new to the boards and when I am not logged in I can read all of the boards, but when I am logged in it will not let me post on certain boards. I don't really understand why. I was trying to post to a person about a miscarriage because I had one recently and would have liked to discuss further about trying to get pregnant again. Why can't I get on those boards logged in?

After you join the boards, you have to opt in to certain areas to see them. Go to the User Control Panel (left side of the screen, light blue banner), then click on Usergroups. Once there, you can opt in one at a time to whichever sections you want to see. You have to hit submit after each choice, but it doesn't take very long.
