Joe Crumley from the ShopBot forum is a long time sign maker. He is going to be giving a course on sign layout and design.

Here is the forum were that will be taking place.

You must register to use the fourm and you can not use alias. So you have to use some form of your name.

As of today, he has not uploaded any content.

Gerald,

I agree with you. Today, you have to be careful about your name. I sent an email to the admin of the forum how I felt also. I don't have a problem with them know my name but the world doesn't.

Nils, we must be "those non-professional people within the cnc community that would waylay our best intensions"

Our interest in joining that forum was to hear Joe Crumley speak. That pompous message was definitely not from Joe.

Gerald,

Yea, some of us hear the beat of a different drum. It is hard for us to follow the leader because the leader usually doesn't know what he is talking about. Any way, I would like to participate but I like my security more. I might send a note to Joe.

Hey aren't you the leader here . I hope you know what youre talkin about .... or we are all in trouble

I do agree that real names in the clear is a No No ... Take that from a 20 plus year computer engineer.

Mike,

The only suggestion I have as pseudo leader is to go to the forum and participate by reading. You won't be able to ask questions or send in your stuff. I want the knowledge so I am going to give it a try.

Thats a silly requirement, but in the same way its not safe to use your name online, its very difficult to probe a name to be fake, so if you are really interested in asking questions, make yourself a plausible nickname.

For example, I once used my second name (the E in PEU) and my mother lastname (is not in my IDs) to avoid using my name, nobody knew who I really was.

John Doe won't cut it thou...

Guys, I would never suggest that you have to tell lies when you join a forum! . I mean, I try to run one myself.

Let's not use this forum to break the rules on another forum.

This thread has already served the purpose of informing about Joe's plans to teach, and the restrictions if you want to learn. So I will close this thread now.
