Can we add a new section to the forum?

Level 15

Evidently having a little fun in this place is not permitted, so can we add a "fun" tab ------ you know, a place where we can still answer questions but not have to have starch added to our collars so that we can be completely serious.  Intuit doesn't want the doors locked, but yet they can lock a post when we evidently start having a little fun.

Obi-Wan - are you inviting Austin to dinner with you since he was the one that accepted your answer as the solution?  It's a good thing that he was able to read Rick62's mind and know that was the answer he was looking for.  

To point out once again the stupidity of how the "solutions" work, I have deemed that this post has solved all of my problems.  Thanks to everyone for helping me out with a perplexing issue.

I'm all for Jeff's idea!

Why so serious?  All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

On the flip side, my response got accepted by the power as solution.  That should get me just enough points to exchange for my dinner tonight, I hope.  Why else do I stick around here otherwise? /s

What's for dinner - McDonald's?

You get it right, Anna!  For the stimulating conversation & sparkling personalities! 🤣

McDonald's?  Are you kidding?  For an accepted solution, I thought I would be entitled to a free meal at the ACME VIP canteen.

I love it when someone posts something.... odd....

Then there are many responses by the original poster; that individual selects one of their 'own' answers as the solution.  Just odd, but typical of the thought put into this forum by Intuit.

Hey, @IRonMaN.  That's cheating.  You're not supposed to mark your own post as the solution.  At least give us some credit for helping you solve this perplexing problem. 😉

Obi-Wan - I'll forward on my Intuit commission check for this month.............................. just to show how I greatly appreciate the help. 💰

How much are you getting paid that makes you think my check will cover all of that?  You might get a break and they will allow to purchase the butter portion of that meal.

Are we comparing pay now?  Thought Intuit's policy says compensation is confidential.

Well, no big deal.  And I'm not boasting.  While some would be proud to tell others that they earn a six-figure salary, I best them by having seven 0's in my pay.  For my exceptional performance, I was also granted an option I can exercise at any time to add more 0's to my pay.  And having these 0's preceded by a decimal makes my compensation package extra special - I dare say that no one who works can make anything close to what I get - unless, of course, you guys are paid at the same rate as me by Intuit?

I used to make that kind of money, but they gave me an offer of a fancy new job title but they said I would have to cut my pay if I took the promotion.  The promotion to Ex-AllStar was worth the money.

@IntuitAustin  - lock the d*mned door so the DIYers can't get in the barn & we will stop teasing them.

But, but, but, we tease each other so why can't we tease someone else?  It's good natured and not nasty.  Trust me, I know nasty when I see it.

Again?  When have I ever been in trouble.  Ok, let me rephrase that.  When have I been in trouble in the last 10 minutes?

And sign me up for that rant and rave room.  Sounds like home away from home.

I would never sell my soul to Intuit.  Actually, I wouldn't sell a slightly burnt Ford Pinto to Intuit ------ but that's just me.

Of course, now, I'll have trouble spelling stimulas/stimulus just like gaurd/guard 🤣

It's not as if spelling is my strong point anyway.

They really need to get rid of these stupid sub-forum categories.  Things like "COVID Connections" and "Talk Talk" seem to be designed to draw in DIYers.

"At least that thread was locked"

Wow; if that is how to get it done, then vote me in for Rant and Rave, too.

"They really need to get rid of these stupid sub-forum categories."

There are some I've explored where "you can't get there from here." Once I figure out how to get there, I try to figure out why it even exists.

Welcome to the party QB.  The other thing I find interesting is, Intuit was able to find a post that was done by someone that doesn't belong here.  However, nobody from Intuit seems to be able to see all of the EasyAcct questions that have popped up in the last few weeks.  They tell folks to come here, to the promised land, but there isn't anybody around to lead them out of the desert.  Kinda sucks.
