    Excellent, thanks.

    I don’t suppose you have a link to the actual document?

    It sounds like a few members behind the scenes are wondering who the hell this new guy is......

    Absolutely, I can tell you more about myself. Anything in particular you’d like to know? The thread title says it all really. Bathroom Design, Supply and Install. On a one man band basis. Tiling is nothing as magnificent as some of the stuff I’ve seen on here. Just your average tiling really.

    Oh, I enjoy gardening.

    Actually I’m enjoying this forum. It seems mature, sensible discussions.

    Anything else you’d like to know then please ask.

    Sorry to burst your bubble :)
    There’s no behind the scenes discussion going on, it’s very rare that kind of thing goes on unless you’re a complete arse! :p
    It’s just my nosey personality, and desire to actually know who I am talking with that’s all.

    What would be my top 3 things to know?

    Probably name, location and years in the industry.
    1. I struggle to understand why someone would choose to hide their Christian name, and I find usernames very impersonal.
    Family name, that I get, whole heartedly.
    (Yes my username makes that a hypocritical statement, but anyone whose been on here for more than 5 mins knows my name.)
    2. Personally I like to know roughly where guys hail from, mainly because it restricts the amount of general help you can give. Whether it be suggesting a supplier in a certain area or what products are even available around there, all the way up to offering to pop over and give someone a lift if they need it.
    For example if you needed an industry ‘professional’ to visit, no point me suggesting Gary from Glasgow if you’re in Devon. :D
    3. Knowing or having an idea on someone’s time in the industry and experience level, helps determine the level of advice our members will offer.
    Nothing worse than offering words of advice to find that you’ve wasted your precious time and energy helping out when all that was needed one sentence, not chapter and verse, but I’m a chapter and verse kinda person so you’re out of luck with me anyway. :D:p

    I’m glad you’re finding it enjoyable here, it will border on addictive if you don’t take a step back very now and then. Haha

    I think forums lend themselves well to people naturally choosing a username instead of the users real name.

    I have absolutely nothing to hide.

    The reason I mentioned that people might be asking who I am is become the moment I said my opinion on something on the forum that someone disagreed with, a question was then asked who I am. I tend to pick up on these things. As I said, nothing to hide. I’ve only got things to gain from browsing this forum.

    I completely understand why people would be wary of me. I can tell you hand on heart I’ve never been on this forum before. I just tend to go all out when I discover something new. I’ll probably ease off at some point. I have been a prolific poster on forums before but never a specific tiling forum.

    Appreciate your candour Andy (not another bloody Andy:rolleyes:)
    You can be as prolific as you like. :D
    I get your point about names. Obviously I do, I don’t use mine. :p
    And I was generalising, not being specific.
    Surrey, that’s my neck of the woods also.

    Oh and I’ve not read the post where you were quizzed yet, had no idea.

    When all said and doneAndy, it’s good to have you here, until it’s not! :tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy::thumbsup:
