You not only posted on this forum, but another forum asking for
advice, not once, but at least twice, panic stricken.   If you didn't want the advice you shouldn't have asked and you surely shouldn't have come back her bashing people for their advice.  We are not medical professionals.  It could have just as easily been something serious and because of the lack of $$ you didn't go to the ER and you'd be singing a different song today. 
People around the coast are being interviewed and are using the slogan from the civil war "the South will rise again" - ick.....that was a "Confederate" slogan....Just caught up.....
They don't ban you from 1 forum and not another!
Believe me, I know!! Probably just some temporary glitch in her settings. This sounds familiar, and I can't remember how someone said to fix it. But she wouldn't be able to post for help if she were banned!
Went on another MT forum (will not
name names) and saw work wanted postings for MTs in India.  Don't know how I feel about this.  All I do know is that I don't want my job outsourced like so many other jobs.  The other MT forum is supposedly not an Indian forum, but they seem to let the Indian MTs post on it.  I won't comment on there because I don't want to be called a bigot.  Just worried about my job is all.  Can't type for 2 cpl and buy groceries. 
because its an MT forum.
Which forum?
Under which forum do I post that I am looking for work?  .  I looked under "Job Seekers" but that doesn't seem to be the correct one, or am I misreading it?  Thanks.
why don't you go to the IT forum? sm
their tech support is fabulous and they usually respond same day. They have their own forum at http://textware.com/board/itmainforum/index.html

No need to just be frustrated... they will help you do something about it.
If you are familiar with this forum at all
then you should have enough insight to realize that posting such vague information without any shred of credibility will get you a less-than-desired response.

Either way, even if it IS true - what kind of friend shares such an important secret? What kind of employee leaks information?

Hope I'm asking in right forum. sm
How much would you charge for a "normal" report? Had a GYN doctor ask me that. She wanted a special rate for normal reports. I said that I would charge whatever the line count came up with. Sometimes they adjust their "normals" and add on, and then I would not consider it a normal. If they did not, what would you charge?

Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.
Stay away from MQ forum! LOL...nm

Yes, they own the forum you are posting on.
Look way down at the bottom of the page.
on job search forum
There are usually companies on there begging for op notes people.
There is a forum for Pets under
If there is a board for a particular topic, the topic is supposed to be taken to that board. I will be emailing the Administrator.
The MT forum that went to a pay site has
weekly updates, at least they used to.  I haven't been to it since it became a pay site. 
Job listing on a different forum for
a very, very good hourly salary base, plus shift differential, etc.  I wonder why some places pay so well and others (especially working at home for a transcription service) seem so cheap.
Oh, get OVER it. This is an online forum,
There was an offshore forum before
see Word forum - nm
Go to the IT main forum sm
it states there is a work around until the next revision comes out, right there under announcements.
Moderator, what's going on with this forum?
It's often down lately and I haven't been able to access it for a day or so. Just wondering what the problem is?
Ok which forum board did the ...sm
post go to about whether the illegals would leave with the state of the economy?  I have checked the Gab and the political.  What gives?  Did it just disappear?  Huh? 
Send her to the CS forum.
Before she signs up for the course, she can get a guest pass to view the forum. She can see what really happens after graduation. Many grads now are having a hard time finding a job. Some graduated last year and are still job hunting. Of those who do find jobs, many are working for 4-5 cpl, which there is no way you could make decent money at that rate.

I wonder what "graduates" told her they were making $60,000 a year. Probably affiliates looking to gain commision off selling the program.
That forum is too scattered &
I need things laid out in steps and explained to me like I am 2 LOL
This forum makes me HUNGRY!!
I wish I had some kind of rotating dinner thing where I visited a different one of you each night for dinner!!!

You all must be super cooks!
On another forum they were talking about the people
There are over 50,000 people packed in there.  If the structure holds, and that's a big if, the bottom level will flood.  The upper level is 35 feet high so all those people will have to be on one level.  The problem is magnified with 50,000+ people, the possibility of no electricity, no air conditioning, no food or water as the dome has not been designated as a diaster shelter previously.  It will basically become a giant indoor swimming pool isolated as an island.  It will be days before rescue can happen.  I shudder to think what they will find when this is all over.
Is there a new format on Forum Section

or am I the only one experiencing this....

about two or three days ago, I've noticed that when I go to the main board, other forum or topic options were not listed on the blue portion of the page, and it feels weird to go back to the home page every time I want to change topic/section.

check the emotiondepression forum
I read a post like that on the emotiondepression forum.
Sorry - posted on wrong forum -nm
I mean love the new forum page.
Regarding the Forum Matrix boards
I have often read and posted things that now don't belong on the main board because I like to hear what other MTs have to say.  I like other MTs and I trust their opinions because we are in the same line of work.  I don't post on the Forum Matrix boards because they don't seem to be MTs.  Maybe I'm wrong.  JMHO.
ya got that right - web bulletin/forum boards.NM
Forum for word expanders
If you visit www.productivitytalk.com - they can answer TONS of questions. I recently had to switch Expanders from Smartype to SH - and that website/moderators were my saving grace!!! Check it out.
don't know...I just don't....laziness?? but on this forum, who cares? nm
It means moved to another forum...
one that the moderator feels is more appropriate to the topic. 
Try the Medquist forum board
There's a whole forum dedicated to Medquist of people who work there. You should start there. :)
Yes this is a joke. MT1 comes to this forum obviously to try to get useful tips for herself but she
anyone else. MT1 what are the chances that you even work for the same company and you and I would be competing for the crappy OP notes? Highly unlikely. Why are you in this forum if you have all these best-kept secrets??
So can all of us start our own forum and get the heck out of here!
professional forum! I do learn a few things here and there on this board, but to wade through all the negativity before finding a positive message is getting exhausting! I seriously am finding it is the "professional" MTs that went about medical transcription as a career the right way, paid our dues, and have worked hard with a great attitude, are the ones that are successful at this job! It is the newbies expecting too much money for their quality or time they are willing to put into reports day in and day out. The just expect it to be so "EASY" for them. Well this isn't an easy job! Please "positive professionals" help us!
Does this forum not allow quotation marks?
My previous post (right above this one) should have had a definition of dysphagia included in paragraph #3.

I would type the definition of dysphagia out longhand in the glossary entry.

Dysphagia = trouble swalloing

Dysphasia = trouble speaking

NightOwl, which definition did you really mean to type?

Then, after seeing my glossary print that all out, just by me typing out dysphagia, I would then go look to see which definition I meant.

It took about a week before I committed that one to memory and was able to delete it from the glossary.
We need a Expander/Productivity forum

With all of the talk about expanders, autocorrect, autotext, and productivity we could use a forum for that on mtstars.

never got your email...I will try emailing you via this forum.
Great information. Maybe you need a productivity forum?
Spheris and HS do NOT post jobs on this forum! nm
Have you tried posting on the Instant Text forum? sm
Go to their website. They have a forum for problem solving. They seem to be real helpful.
This is quite morbid, but it was suggested by a poster in another forum that
perhaps knowing the great loss of life that will occur among those who were unable to leave the city, the govt believes this is the easiest way to contain the bodies.

It is obvious the local govt and the residents never believed this would happen. Did you see the reporter on Fox interviewing people on Bourbon Street having hurricane parties and joking about being drowned?
The Forum Subject is missing in the blue box...
don't know what happened with my format. All forum subject is missing. Now, I can't switch from one subject to another without going back to home page
Just make a "mean people" forum nm
MQ chose the public forum for us to ask questions.

Do you have any better idea?

They offered a job.  They are not producing the goods.  They don't return phone calls and they don't have any policy manuals for employees or contractors.

There is no other way to ask the question.  They brought us to this place through their misrepresentation of facts.  The fact is they offered work.  So why shouldn't they be looked at for unethical work practices?  I was looking for a job, they offered one.  It's not my responsibility now to go look for another job.  They need to reply as to why there is no work.

I'm very grateful to have this forum and for your hard work.
Questions like this should be taken up with your supervisor instead of a public forum. sm
I'm sure your supervisor could answer any questions you have. 
I made a sticky post at the top of the forum. I am not going
to get into specific debate over various belief systems and people's rights.  If you haven't read the sticky post, please do so.
Anyone on this forum working Smarter and not Harder?
I have been in this profession 28 years now; turned 50 this December.  Back in the day, I could sit down and type nonstop and be done with my work in 6 to 6.5 hours at 2000 lines.  Now it is all I can do to get 1200 lines, and I am working from sun up to sun down.  I work a full time employee position and part time IC position.  Full time consistently running out of work, so first of year, I will be subcontracting full-time, but will also keep the part time IC position- just so I don't have all my eggs in one basket.   What is the key to working less and making more?
