    It always strikes me as inappropriate that when a new member appears their post labels them as
    "Newbie to Printing".

    This may be true, but in most cases they are not, just merely "Newbie to PrinterKnowledge".

    Agreed, so what would you suggest instead..:hu
    But is Management listening...
    Another one of my irritations is the PM system, “Conversations”...:tongue :hit

    Nice rose! Perhaps they could introduce ink cartridges filled with perfume or what have you, cooking smells for Stratman, fired off by an extra set of keys, that might sell more printers!

    Probably "New Member".
    One can only offer. You need to be more explicit regarding "Conversations".

    As I am not in the real world of Social Media, (TF) we should either call them PM’s or Conversations but not both, I suppose you can have a Conversation on some Media Apps, but our system is no more than an Email system, so is not a Conversation..:eek:

    Maybe I’ve outlived my usefulness, but if I want a Conversation I’ll lift the Telephone..:hu
    I like your idea of smelly inks, @stratman would be drooling with every print he makes... :D
    “New Member” would work but it’s a non-starter with our Management, anyway we had that before it was changed to the now:- "Newbie to Printing"... :duc

    And here I thought we've had some good conversations. :confused:

    I guess you and Emu think like the great Abraham Lincoln, our 16th president, that you can call a tail a leg but a cow still only has four legs, not five. :D
