  • Introducing myself

    Hello, my name is edittide, and I work for an online editing and proofreading company. We have a list of sucky customers, as well as some who are not on the list yet but will be if they keep it up.
    If you build it, they will come and try to get it for free.

      We would love to hear the (anonymized) details of your suckiest of customers! Because pain shared is pain lessened.

      One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world.

              Well, it's Monday morning, and all the complainers are rested and ready for a brand-new week of complaining (I also work in the Complaints Department)!

              I have a dumb question for all of you: Where can I add a signature in my profile? I went to the user CP and found all sorts of fields to fill out, but I couldn't find one for the signature.
              If you build it, they will come and try to get it for free.

                That option isn't available to new users right away. Due to spammer problems over the years, we had to restrict certain things from new members. They'll automatically become available as you establish a posting history.

                  Thank you! I am very familiar with the problem of spammers, and I can appreciate that.

                    You should be able to add a sig now, as well as send private messages.

                        Oh! I thought I had just missed the option to add the sig early on. But the policy makes a ton of sense; we have had similar problems on other boards that I am on.

                          And restrict other things from certain members even when we've been here a long long time because apparently we can't be trusted to use them properly
