It was a simple question, actually an oxymoron, "a casket coming with a lifetime warranty?"

Is there a TV board or are you allowed to post
What EXACTLY are we ALLOWED to post on the MAIN board?
Just about every other post has been saying post this on this board or that board....well what goes here?
WHY is this person allowed to post on the equipment board?
Post jokes and comedy on Comedy board. (NM)
Reminder: Jokes go on Comedy board. (SM)

This has been an issue before.  No exceptions.

Thank you.

Should just post all their open positions in one post and only be allowed to post one of those a day
I am not allowed to say where I work on this board.
Post about Companys on the Company board, post job ads on the Job Seeker board
I'm not allowed to say that name on this board or I'll be banned..sorry..
If you'd care to e-mail me, I'll share, but I've been told not to say that name on this board or I'll be banned.
They are not allowed to post here. It is removed. (NM)
Are we allowed to post links for other sites?
I thought we could not do that?
I guess I'm not allowed to post the link.
Sorry you feel that way, but we have never allowed offshore MTs to post on the MTStars website.

This is not something new, it's been this way since the beginning.  The ONLY difference we made was to allow US based MTSOs that offshore the ability to post job ads because they hire US QA Editors.

No, we do not set up specific company boards. Posters are allowed to post discussion about MQ here
or on the Company board, just as any other company can. 
umm.. are we allowed to post pictures with the direct link code listed?
because I did and it won't show.. the image has not been moved or deleted.. it is a little gif of MC Hammer dancing to Grammar Time. Darn.
And its gonna kill you to post on the Company board rather than the main board?
This post should be made on the Company board. See that board. Thread locked.

cherrypicking co-worker issue (meant to post it on this board instead of MQ board) sm...

I need opinions please...I work on a very small account with just a handful of ladies.  Because of the nature of the software (trying not to get too specific here) we can see who is working online and what reports they are working on in real-time...

We have one cherrypicker on the account.  Instead of using FIFO method, she retrieves the reports by author ID - usually picking the better dictators of course.  She knows I busted her and she did admit to it in on our work e-mail (not too bright) which I am saving just in case she gets out of hand - so far I'm still able to make money since really most of the dictators aren't bad. 

But every night it's starting to wear on me since she's screwing up turnaround time.  I don't really want to cause a big uproar being that it is such a small account and I need to work with her almost every night usually one on one.

What would you all do?  I want to handle this as delicate and professional as possible because we can't really afford to lose anyone on this account.  In other words, I refuse to stoop to her level by cherrypicking right back.

My boss has asked me several times why so-and-so does so much more than I do...I just bite my lip at that point but one of these days I think I might explode and just open up a can of worms....

Post belongs on Ask the Dr. board. See that board. Thread locked.

Post word questions on the Word board NOT the Main board.
Jokes should not be sent out to us MT's in

Waste of time to MT's. I think the supervisor should use more discretion in the use of company email. !

Had a mailbox full of jokes from supervior TODAY !

Maybe these jokes are more

What did one banana say to the other banana?

Answer: I find you a-pealing?


What did one orange say to the other orange?

Answer: Orange you cute!
why would you post this on the board????..nm
jokes in imail
I for sure, would be forwarding those right on to someone in corporate, maybe even under the Ask Frank site
My kids can tell better jokes than that
The things you post on this board clearly
say that you are a lonely man! Get a woman and then get a life!

See post on Word board. NM
Sorry, will re-post this on MedQ board.
I'd like one, too! I answered your post on the other board.
I'm sure they'll need an experienced technician to work at home, though. Just like any other job, they don't hire newbies without experience to work at home right away. It's better to learn in-house from experienced people than to try to go it alone. You can't troubleshoot over the phone and fix someone's computer if you've never actually done it in real life. College merely lays the foundation, it doesn't make you an expert in the field.

I've been trying to find an at-home tech job for over 10 years now. It's not easy. Too much competition out there with all the youngsters and Y2K layoffs. Totally saturated market with much lower wages than 10 years ago. People generally don't quit at-home tech jobs because they're hard to come by.
Productivity board post
Please view post on productivity board re: SH back up from technologically challenged.

a question and webmaster emails are not going through, so...   has anyone heard of  s/l "obtrex, optrex" TVT?  "Patient is post obtrex TVT." 
Post a resume board?
Wasn't there a "post a resume" board? I am not seeing it.  Quit my other job for full time and it is not even half time.  Going broke here.
Your post will probably get moved to the Gab Board. We
I see your post was moved from the other board...sm

Hey Blondee,


What language did you're folks speak before they came here to the great melting pot?....Did they come through Ellis Island, Angel Island, on the Mayflower or in the bottom of a ship in shackles...We're all immigrants....unless, of course, you're a Native American or Inuit.


I speak a few languages and had gotten called outta my office at any given time to translate in the ER or OR. If it helped to save someone's life and/or calm a family's nerves, that was cool with me.


It would be nice if everyone just spoke the king's English. 




Theodore Roosevelt on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN


Are we "SLOW LEARNERS" or what?


Theodore Roosevelt on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN


"In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man's becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."


Theodore Roosevelt 1907

There was a post on job board this morning
Post on prayer board ???

Is that for real? Is it someone here or was that a fwd that was posted? A few things jumped out at me as being inconsistent with the situation presented.


You should probably post this on the Company Board
Thank you for an excellent post. I wish we had our own board. nm
Read your post on the other board....
It discussed not having health insurance any more, not being an employee, having 2 IC jobs, etc. You speak of this as the CURRENT/FUTURE situation, not in the past. I know the subject of Keystrokes not hiring ICs has been addressed many times on this board.

I don't mean to make you defensive, but you posted pretty much 2 separate messages about a single job and they give conflicting information. I'm just confused.
5 jokes in my company email as of 7 p.m.

I agree that this is improper use of email, especially by our superiors !

My imail keeps telling me that I am 98% full, and need to delete messages without jokes being sent to fill up my mailbox, too. What would happen if all of us MQ MT's began sending out jokes via MQ COMPANY EMAIL. I don't think that would set well with MGMT ! We just don't have time to read jokes via company email. We are struggling to get in our lines in order to pay our light bills, etc.

Personally, I would prefer to only receive WORK-RELATED emails from my supervisor. I would prefer to read the jokes on my own time and of a subject of which I choose to read jokes about. It is just not what I want to do when I sit down to work -- read JOKES in emails from my supervisor.
