What's DOS

2010-12-05, 16:25 PM

Does anyone know why it says "What's DOS?" above my avatar icon?  I know it stands for Disk Operating System.  No idea where it came from.  Have poked around my personal profile and can't see how to turn it off.

Well that is really unnecessarily confusing, and also annoying. I am quite an advanced computer user, and so you:

1. mislead others by mispresenting me as someone who doesn't know DOS

2. caused me unnecessary confusion when trying to get serious work done.

3. misses the point: people new to the forum are NOT inexperience with computers... rather they are inexperienced with the forum.

 

I am told I have a fine sense of humour, but this unnecessarily hurdle to success in a technical forum perhaps should be rethought... i.e. replace it with something like "New Member". 

 

My two cents,

D
