You realize you are posting this on the main board, right? Not everyone at this site works for MQ.

    why are you posting on the main board ??
    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.
    Do you realize how many posts we get to this site per
    month?  We do our best, but can't catch every single thing. 
    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

    Ah, on the main site. Rather an abrupt U-turn. Guess the business plan just
    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)
    do a search on Main Board
    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.
    thanks for posting...what a great site, too. (nm)
    Thanks for posting that site and info. nm
    It's not like he's posting porn site pictures.
    Admin will get around to deleting him again.  However, it sounds like Sam is not being consistent with his IP address, which makes it tough to ban someone.  Besides, we could be with he and hab job and coffee.
    This site prohibits offshore MTs from posting. The OP is in the US>
    This site prohibits offshore MTs from posting.
    Thanks for posting that site! I think I could use this! My ankles/feet
    are killing me. I wasn't aware that this existed at all. It would be great if anyone who has actually used this could post her opinion on it.

    I also wonder if it would work with a split/tented keyboard? Could you put it vertically?

    Thanks again, I'm gonna check it out!
    isn't it the posting by the visitors here that determine the web site's profit?
    just a curious question.
    Anyone had a positive result of posting a resume through this site?sm

    Once again, I am on the lookout for another service because work load is starting to slow down.  Quite frankly, I'm a bit scared!  We had no work for many days starting about this time last year, and it looks as if that cycle is starting again.  I was just wondering if anyone would suggest I post my resume here.


    and yet they are posting on MT board!
    and all that hard work paid off so they could spend time with the riff-raft on MT board. sweet. i bet her parents are real proud of all that money they spent on her education. hee.
    Posting on this board sm
    I agree with the moderator and the thing that bothers me is that some take up so much of some of the boards, that they seem to "overcome" and this is why in desperation, some say, "Please help me on".....xyz board because they know the board they should be posting on has only one or two posters. Albeit, these posters are helpful also, but don't you think it would be wise to allow only a certain number of posts per day on certain boards to allow someone else to get a word in edgewise? Then there would not be so many "lockouts" and posts on the main board. I was in a situation that was of importance to my future business and I did ask for help on a board which seemed to have only one or two posters lately, and I was shut down. This is not a punitive message, just a suggestion that sometimes we are desperate to be helped. This board is an excellent source of communication and I would hate to see anything negative happen here. Just a suggestion. Carry on the good work!
    Did anyone see the posting on the job seeker's board with
    the ortho emphysis? 
    Did you notice the posting on job board

    for the company hiring new grads?  I would be highly suspicious since they didn't give the name of the company.  It may be a legit company, but.....


    I tried posting on State Board, but is anyone else from TN?

    That particular poster is now posting on the new MT board
    noticed several posts from her over on that board, which is where I suspect she belongs, to be honest.
    CHS Acct Mgr posting on job seeker's board
    I have a sneaking suspicion that this is Ascend.  If anyone finds out what company this is, please let us know!
    Anybody having problems posting on word board ?

    I have tried several times but will not post, some type of error. 


    I was banned from other board for posting diff.
    Maybe you would have better luck posting this on the coders board.
