I think Bob is asking for that info to be placed in your signature line, like his or mine. That way whenever you post, it's automatically included.

Any info you care to list will aid in a more correct answer to your questions.Possibly even a neighbor you didn't know about. This afternoon I met a nut that lives less than 3 miles from my home in Indiana--we are in Florida now.  Bob

Bob -

This suggestion comes up every six months or so, yet it's worth repeating.  And repeating. . .  And repeating. . .

I've had my info in my sig line ever since TPTB changed over from the old BBS software that crashed constantly, to the current Simple Machines Forum software BCM is using now.

I'd like to add something else to your request:

If you're using a BBS "handle", like several of our members (Highway Yacht, Artvonne, Dreamscape, etc. [not pickin' on you fellows, just using you as an example]), might I suggest that you at least include your first name in your sig line?  Really helps, especially when directing comments to multiple posters.  Plus it sort of brings you into the "busnut family" a little more, too!

FWIW & HTH. . .

RJ, now I love that suggestion. It is confusing. It is a little to put names with faces, when you finally get to a rally, if you know some real names. I know I had that problem when I was at the bussin 11 rally. I met a couple of people there, that I later learned were ones that I have talked to online, but didnt know their real names til it was over.  Huh I love to see pictures of members that I can put a name to also. FWIW, Ruthi

Hello,
My name is Bryce but most people just call me "BK".
I don't have a bus conversion yet.
But I am a certified bus-nut because I'm head over heels in-debt on a couple buses for our Charter bus fleet!
And that's all I got's to say about that!

Bill did it right I think! He put Cable on his bus and was a sinch to figure out who he was at the rally last year. He and his wife made great neighbors for our short visit there.

Depending on what goes on in the other parts of one's life, the internet search engine gives malcontents an opportunity to make trouble.

The world is an ever changing place where rats are empowered, and honour and loyalty are worthless.

If you can't fathom what this post means, best be thankful!

I will, for the time being, remain:

happy coaching!

Okay, I'll bite. VictorAlphaNova, I can figure that one out. And if I ever have a question for you, I'll just call you Van for short. And BusWarrior=BW for short, Busted Knuckle=BK for short. But the one that I keep forgetting (shame on me, since he posts more knowledge to this board than many combined) is Luvrbus. I refuse to call him Luvr for short, so why don't we just stick with Cliff? (Damn, I hope I got that right). Take care all, Whisky(too much tonight)IndiaLimaLouise Grin

Hi all
My name is Tom, this in my first post after lurking for a couple of years, I got my baby (finally) on November 23, 2010. She is a 1984 TMC MC-9 with a '98 6V92T and HT740.  I am still in the planning stages, all I have accomplished thus far is to get the seats loose from the floor and ordering seven of the required filters.  I have already got a wealth of information from this web site and I look forward to getting and hopefully giving a lot more.
