Forums Letters to the COW Team I’m embarrassed

    I don’t really think my brain-jar picon belongs up on the top there with the real pros in the “Broadcasting” forum. I’m honored, but I’m waaay under-qualified to be put on a banner with those guys. My take is that to rate being up there, you should have the engineering chops, probably an EE and/or an FCC ticket, and I don’t. Not by a long shot. I think it implies a level of expertise I can’t rightfully or honestly claim. If it’s not too big a deal, Aaron, could you please put my jar back in the “nosebleed seats” of the Broadcasting forum, where I’m just another guy with an opinion, take it or not, as you wish.

    I wouldn’t want people to get the wrong impression of my skill level in engineering. Not when those other guys up there have put in the time and work to be there legitimately.

    Also in other fora, like the Vegas forum and the Photoshop forum, and even at this Communication feedback forum, the pictures are completely messed up. I guess something is wrong with the forum. I hope it is not a virus….

    Hello Theo,

    What do you mean by “the pictures are completely messed up”? Can you post a screen show or elaborate on what you are experiencing?

    It started sometime ago in the Vegas forum, but now it pops up everywhere…
    Also now a lot of people have the same black and white picture from old movies or so. And even this cow appears very frequently…

    The old movie and COW pics are images where the user hasn’t uploaded their mug shot. Hopefully users will soon realize they should upload their mug shot so those pictures show up a little less frequently.

    But also the names appear randomly on top of the fora. E.g: why does my name appear on top of the Communication Feedback forum?

    Abraham, can you please take my pic off of the top of the Broadcast forum and put me back in the “cheap seats”? That’s what this thread was about in the first place. I don’t deserve to be up there with those guys. It implies a level of expertise in engineering that I don’t rightly have a claim to.
