Happy to know that they do go away eventually.  I perfectly understand the need for them however :-)  Thanks!

PS, thank you for adding in the shortcuts at the bottom of the page.  Now if only I could get the same response on the ipad.

I understood and I didn't mind. I think the content and the people on this forum make it worth it. Thanks for all the hard work!

Erica,
 i am sorry to hear about your shoulder. I have had bum shoulders all my life. From age 6-30 i have had about 16 disloacations. I was able to do the Leathal Weapon straight jacket trick with no problem (giving away my age if any one has seen it). I had reconstruction on it a coupke years ago in my many sugeries i have had. Hope it not to serious or your writing arm, luckly mine wasnt lol. Take care,
Noah

P.s what ever to keep the trash out is ok by me :)

Oh my goodness Noah! That sounds so painful and inconvenient! Luckily for me, I was not in pain for too long.  ;D

Yes Erica it has been no fun. The last 5 years really. After the shoulder was the elbow, on my writing hand of course. I had cubital tunnel surgery ( carpal tunnel but in the elbow). Then had 4 back surgeries. The last one was 3 level fusion in jan of 2013. And a year almost to the day had emercency removal of  massive inflammed gall bladder. :) fun times. But as long as i have art i can stay realitively sane. Lol enough about me and not want/mean to hijack thread, sorry. I am glad you were not in pain to long. I dont wish it on anyone.
 Thanks again,
Noah

You have been through so much. I'm glad you have art (and now us!)  ;D  as a stress reliever.  :)

Being a very new member, I think the security questions are a good idea.  A few of the questions are very simple if you are involved in Calligraphy, but some of the questions required me to use google to fine the exact word you were looking for...LOL   i.e.  a BROAD pen vs a FLAT pen.

No biggie.  It is nice to learn that these questions will go by the wayside after a time.

Thank you Nathan @nathan32935 , I knew that some folks would have to google search but also knew the answer would be readily available. (And if not, I sometimes have folks email me and I send them the answers.) We had some problems in the past with trolls and bots and the security questions have been a compromise to address that. But you’re almost there (where there are no questions!)  ;D

Thank you Erica for accepting my membership in the forum and for the wonderful resources you and others have created. As a beginner in calligraphy, this forum is invaluable to me. I agree that is a good thing to have the forum as a safe place free of spammers even if it takes a little more time to be able to post.
