This also involves AHDI, so I think it should be discussed here on the Main Board, not just MQ's

    What is the Main Board for? All general topics seem to get moved to the new gab board.

    Look on the company board, they are discussed
    almost daily. 
    This is also discussed on the company board

    And we've discussed this before on this board. Life is not that
    simple for me. If I leave the state, I leave my elderly parents that I care for and I leave my minor children because they legally cannot cross state lines without their father's permission. He's not going to OK that. Besides, I'm happy doing MT. Who ever said I was not happy doing MT? It works great with all the family I have to care for. I just wish I hadn't wasted time and money going to college, especially when the job market in my state got oversaturated with other college grads.
    Not biting ... it's been discussed in heated detail on about pg 3 of this board. haha

    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

    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


    AHDI Board Salaries?
    This is from the AHDI website. There are links to a "BOD packet," and to a financial statement, which they are calling "privileged" i.e., you have to be a member to access these.

    http://www.ahdionline.org/scriptcontent/bodmain.cfm

    I'm not a member, but if you are, have a look. Maybe their salaries are listed? Or maybe in the financials link?

    I would bet a lot that no one on the AHDI board is driving a 1986 Honda.
    why are you posting on the main board ??
    x
    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. 


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

    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.
    AHDI Board Members Salary Info
    Unless things have changed, I don't believe the board members are paid.  They do receive reimbursement for travel and a food allowance.  They go to board meetings every month or so at different places around the country and stay in the nice hotels.  
    Main Board is for any topic. Don't start the flaming. NM

    you're welcome; use Main board for general MT questions

    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.

    An operation involves cutting, procedures do not.

    It involves all of the fingers from about the mid-palm to fingertips. I also have
    stiffness and pain in the knuckle of my middle finger, same hand. No swelling, redness, or warmth of the joint, though. Thanks!
    This story involves a rude physician, as well.
    He was dictating along, never pausing. I heard a door open and then close, a clunk (toilet seat being lifted) and well, the sound of rushing stream of water. He never stopped dictating, even while zipping up and leaving the restroom.

    Like you, I was highly insulted, especially since he seemed to have a smile on his face when he was dictating - like he knew I would hear this - I never made eye contact with him after than unless he asked a question.

    this was just discussed on the
    company board. Go to it and scroll down to about 6/19 with comment from Oh, yes, it a full moon for sure. I thought there was another one, too, but I did not see it. Good luck to you.

    Yes, I'm sure an any problem always involves hundreds of ants, but it's still an ant problem.
    How funny.
    I didn't know it had been discussed either - sm
    I don't visit here often.

    I have two kids at home (12 and 13) and I roll in the morning and then start to slide at the half way point myself.

    I start at 7:30 and take a break about 11:30 or so for lunch, then work some more.

    If I am really dragging... I start day dreaming a bit. Okay, a lot. Means i have to go back and read everything more thoroughly but the typing part gets done a heckova lot faster.
    Try a search as this has been discussed here before..

    if you discussed (in ANY way) business, yes.

    This is the big problem here and what we discussed
    Never had famine, still donít.I had 2 children and worked out of the home. How can you let yourself go downhill and just say I sit here trying to make it. That is why this profession has gone down because of no one wanting to leave the house to have a job, just want to sit at home because they have a child. What happens when no money at all, do you still just sit there trying to make it. I had more get up and go, I guess, than what I am reading on here now days. I always wanted to have things like a roof over my head, food for the family, nice vacations and I worked for it. No wonder the companies are offering less and less money to do this job because they have found people willing to wait on things. Before long the workers are going to have to pay the employers to have a job.
    TOOOO MUCH!! Which is why it was discussed BEFORE we had kids! LOL
    He is adament that the kids will have balance, structure and guides (apparnetly as long as his mother does not object)...fine by me as I was raised that way...however, trying to get a kid to face facts when they were told it was not their fault and they they should be in trouble.....well gee...that is not a recurring line I want used in the house and have yet to get him to admit he was wrong since she told him he was not!  Hence, huge morality issue he needs to learn for his life.   Talking to him all you get is "they say"  instead of I did, I was wrong, etc....she has it in his head he is right, they are wrong!!!!  Our actions are our doing whether good, bad or indifferent.
