This is the main message board. If you notice, not much on this page is directly related to MT. This is where we go to talk about anything else non-MT related.

    And its gonna kill you to post on the Company board rather than the main board?
    What is the Main Board for? All general topics seem to get moved to the new gab board.
    update to main message
    You put them on the company board, not the main board. They are still there.
    Main board is for MT topics. Non-MT goes to the Gab board! nm
    this should be on the main board, because
    It's the MAIN BOARD
    I thought we could gather as MTs at the main board and discuss pets, TV, etc. if we wanted to. This was more a comment on the show rather than an attempt to open up a discussion about sex change anyway.

    FWIW, I thought the show was funny last night. I did feel a little squeamish when Zachary was on, though. He seemed to come away with the impression that he was being discriminated against because of his look, or the way he? is, and didn't seem to understand that he can't sing. What's new, though. I think my favorite so far, though, has been the "I shot the sheriff" guy.
    What is the main board for?

    A week or so ago, I responded to a post from someone who was asking about Files To Go. My message was wiped from the board after a very short time. This morning in my email box was a digest from MT Stars by a person asking where her post went...she was asking about keyboard trays. I can't find either one of her messages on the board.

    Why are our messages being deleted from the system?

    Main Board

    I'd like to thank the administrator for helping me with my question about the main board. Being new here, I looked around for "instructions" but must have overlooked them. It's nice to see the administrative message at the top of the main board explaining how to use it -- I took the word "main" litearlly, as others new to this board possibly have.

    I do have a question. When I signed up at Yahoo-Groups , I signed up to receive daily digests, which are digests of the main board. Is there a way to receive digests of the boards listed on the left?

    Main Board

    Does the active topics selection at the top of the page show all active topics for each category at left or just certain ones?  Thanks.l

    why are you posting on the main board ??
    of the Main Board here??? huh? hmmm....nm
    Again, the Main board is for anything that would not be a topic that should

    be posted on any of the boards in the left column.  If your post is about equipment questions, then that should be posted on either the Equipment or Technical boards.  If a new MT has questions, posts should be made on the New MT board.  Questions about a particular company?  Post is on the Company board. 

    We receive well over 5 million hits to this site per month.  If everything was posted on the Main board we would have a major problem on our hands.  That is why posts are deleted. 

    Thank you. I moved it to this Main board. (nm)

    Moved to main board for more to see...sm
    We are not endorsing nor advertising this product. This post was on the New MT/Student board and is a nice discount for all of our MTStars posters, so I thought I'd bring it out for everyone to see.

    Thank you Danny!
    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?
    The main board is used to discuss many different topics. sm
    There are many posts on this board that if you were to be really technical about it, should be put on the company board, word board, productivity board, religion board, etc., but they're allowed to stay here and be discussed. If you don't like this topic, then feel free to skip it. But it really isn't a political discussion per se, so it shouldn't have to be taken somewhere else.
    I think y'all should have to stay on the main board.
    That way we youngsters can read your posts and go, "Wow, we're sure lucky we didn't have to put up with all that bunk." Thanks for paving the way for us!
    The Main board is fine for this subject. (SM)
    Non-MT topics are fine here.

    If you would like to take this up with the Administrator, you can e-mail her at admin@mtstars.com.


    In other words - the main board should not even exist then.

    I asked on main board, don't know why I didn't
    think to ask you all!  We are still all a team, right? I am going to return to transcribing, I was an MT for 20 years and QA for 10.  I figured out financially that I would have to transcribe 1500 lines per shift to make out OK.  Of course, if I got paid 12 and 13 cpl like the old days, the requirement would be less! But I'm figuring a 9 cpl start. I would have to do 1500 to keep afloat until I get moving up or transcribing faster.  Anyway, is 1500 lines of work easy to get on a steady basis around the average MTSO anymore?  I used to work 2 jobs for years long ago, and found it was easier that way. When one ran low, I jumped on other one, and always had work. That's my biggest fear, quitting my hourly job, going back to MTing, and then finding no work. I don't know if 1500 lines per shift is out of the ballpark to expect these days? I used to type a lot more than that, but I'm a bit more fidgety these days! What do you think? Sound possible as far as the MTSO's side? Or is my goal too high? I just don't want to end up homeless trying to break away from this company.
    Main Board is for any topic. Don't start the flaming. NM
    you're welcome; use Main board for general MT questions
    This also involves AHDI, so I think it should be discussed here on the Main Board, not just MQ's
    Post word questions on the Word board NOT the Main board.
    We had problems with the Main board and some posts were removed. You did not offend

    I am aware of the religion board, just thought main one would be more active...thanks anyway. nm
    To the service who posted a job ad on the Main board, the reason your post
    was removed is because all job ads are to be posted on the Job Seeker's board. Any "well-deserving MT" knows to look at that forum for that "chance to work for an excellent company and make an excellent line rate". Feel free to post your ad there.

    Thank you.
    MT Week prizes are posted on the Main board. Watch for them and then
    follow the directions to enter. If you see a post that has a winner announced beneath it, that prize is no longer available.
    You realize you are posting this on the main board, right? Not everyone at this site works for MQ.

    message board
    Thank you, I will check the board.
    Then why are you on this message board?
    Is this the same message board that did not want to talk about
    Take this to Pressure Valve is an idea. Or create a new board "Roe vs Wade" or "Why Young People do Dumb Things."
    One guy posted on message board, saying he was on his laptop in the car.
    He said they are doomed if they do not open up the highway going the opposite direction, as you said. And, fuel is an issue, needless to say.

    Mandatory evacuation should have been ordered soon, they are saying, as opposed to voluntary.
    Use the Post a New Message box next to the Search box, top of board. nm

    A message on the Phillips board of Yahoo
    I'm trying to get a feel for who they are and if they would be a good employer if I worked for MQ, and then MQ sold to Nuance.  This is PURE SPECULATION on my part.
    Yes, venting generalizations on a message board is about as unprofessional
    as a business owner can get. I'm glad I DID NOT apply with this company! Sounds too high maintenance, high stress, negative, dictatorial and critical for me.
    Inside is a great web site/message board
    Re above message - just posted on technical board. Need help badly.
    oh wow, so that makes you smarter than me because you corrected an error on a message board???
    Congrats...how have I not been supportive? I never called you anything nasty or said anything negative...I merely stated sometimes you have to suck it up...ESLs are never going to get any easier...you just have to adapt...and the pay will get better once you prove yourself...I think you just don't like the reality of the situation...sorry for being honest...
    Whining incessantly anonymously on a message board is far from "fighting back and standing up for
    your rights".  Sheesh. That's how silly you all are.  Blah, blah, blah on here 24/7 and I guarantee you that's the extent of your yaw.  Otherwise, you'd be sharing some pertinent communications you've had with the people who MATTER - like your supervisors, managers, etc.  And I don't like change?  Sweetie, I go with the flow and have changed with this career every step of the way - starting back typing on a manual typewriter with 8 colored carbon copies and matching colors of "liquid paper" and listening to tapes, and now using state-of-the-art platforms with voice recognition as well.  I'm happy, and still love my job. Thank you for your unstated concern!  You have a problem with your work flow, dictators, you call your superiors and have it taken care of.  If they don't "change" it to your liking, that's your answer - the handwriting is on the wall, so to speak! You're getting what they want to give you regarding work! Pounding your chest in words on this message board under an assumed name is nothing short of ludicrous.  and over and over and over and over and over again....ya, ya, ya, cherry pickers, Indians, cherry pickers, Indians....yawn yawn.  Ya take up good board space and don't realize how totally FOOLISH you look... snore.... But its your "breath", and your precious energy wasted, so go for it!!  Heavens you should direct your complaints to the proper channel!!!!
    Venting-why do people keep putting nm and THEN writing a message?? nm means no message - sm
    Please put sm if you have a message and NM if there is no message other than your subject line.  It makes it easier when reading these messages.  thanks so much and have a nice day everyone. 
    At least you know. You are the main one doing it. DUH
    small message. nm means no message
    Flame=200 views, sm=see message, nm=no message
    See the Main page...
    for a brief history of MTStars, see the main page.

    Forget the affiliation with MQ or anyother company involved in offshoring "MTStars is staunchly against the offshoring of American Private Health Information".

    Many companies like MQ, Cymed, Spheris etc etc. are banned on MTStars to post any jobs as well for advertising and sponsorships.

    I love to visit these boards because I know I am on 100% US MTs site.


    it's the same main page, but when I go to look
    up something and get results, it is the results page that is really different.
    Yes, after all this is the main reason
    Staying at home is not just to take care of kids, but to maybe take care of an elderly parent or for that matter a disabled family member, which could include a spouse.  When I chose this profession, I was on-site and spent 17 years there putting my children in daycare.  You really do not know anything about me and are entitled to feel how you want.  I just don't think everyone should be so negative about someone wanting to stay home, supplement their husband's income, while being with their children.  Different strokes for different folks.  I wanted to simply say that the time you spend with your children can never be replaced.  This is after all a job that can be done at home.  Transcriptionists are not the only ones with at-home businesses.
