Fixed some formatting for you

Hi, Lynn - in your medicaid lien discussion, I tweaked the formatting a bit. TaxAlmanac is runs on wiki software, which will read certain things as "instructions" rather than literally, e.g., if you put an asterisk or two at the start of a line, it'll give you a bullet, or bullets, thinking that's what you're asking for. Clearly, you wanted asterisks, so what I did was click on the edit tab on the discussion, and surround the asterisks with the "<nowiki>" codes, which basically lets it see an asterisk as just an asterisk.

While I was there, I linked back to the prior discussion you referred to, so others don't need to go in search of it for the backstory.

Most of the time it's probably better to pull up the old discussion and add your new question/comment as a follow-up to it. The golf-cart thing is a good example of that - bumping the old discussion might've been a better choice. (Anytime you add a new post to the end of an old discussion, it'll jump back up to the top of the list, so don't worry that nobody'll see it.) On the lawsuit question, I can see it both ways. You're starting a new discussion for a completely different facet of the issue, so putting it at the end of your other discussion might have confused the issue; on the other hand some people might not have seen the original question, which explains a bit more about what's going on. Linking back to it seemed to resolve that pretty well - if people want more info before answering, it's clear where they should go to find it.

Anyhow - there's no hard and fast rule on this; as long as you're not literally duplicating a question you - or somebody else - already asked, nobody's going to get really bent out of shape. Just figured I'd give you some info for future consideration (for whatever it's worth!!).

Thanks (and a belated welcome),

MAgnetic Marketing


I am intrigued and definitely would like to try some kind of additional marketing. When looking at the dan kennedy information, I saw his deluxe kit cd rom on ebay.

Is this what you are talking about?

I also live in a smaller community, not in an urban, sprawling suburbia scene. What's your opinion on how this works with a smaller population density?

Fletch, You mentioned in a Business Growth forum on Getting 150 tax clients to connect with a TPA. Forgive my naivete', but what's a TPA? Thanks much Anchorman 11:35, 9 December 2009 (CST)


The FAQ has some info, but in general, you go to the top of the page, click "edit this page" and make changes within your own posts only. Make sure the squiggly brackets that start and end each post are still there when you're done, and try not to mess with the part at the beginning from the squiggly brackets up to where it says "text=" as that all is used to format the post. You can click "preview" at the bottom of the page to check that your edit is correct, and then click "save page" to actually post it to the discussion.

Hope that helps.

I was thinking more about your post(s) in my recommended readings thread. While the website certainly appears to be very similiar to those "get rich schemes", I'm having a hard time thinking you would recommend such, and figured there has to be something beneficial about it. Can you provide any more feedback on the material? Do you think the site you listed is the best place to buy it (for a $1) or ebay? If nothing else, if it's only a $1, it's obviously worth the risk.

I apologize for dimissing the idea so quickly in the thread - I hope I didn't offend.

Great profile recap you have, and I love your humility!

Have a great stretch run to 04/18!

All the best.

Hey, I NEVER (well, hardly ever) read these messages. Contact me at

Prior contributions

Hi, Fletch! Yes, you can do this easily. From this page, look at the left margin, and just under the yellow search box is a section called "toolbox" - click on the "user contributions" link there. You can also click "edits" next to your name in any discussion post.

In either case, you'll want to click "500 views" and may need to roll back a few pages to see everything, since you've contributed quite a bit here!

Please let me (or Belle - her answer is even better!) know if you have any other questions.

Did you just set up a second user name?

Somebody just created "fletch2" - if that isn't you, it's one we'll put on our "watch closely" list as they may be trying to impersonate you (for lack of a better term), or add more weight to their posts since people may assume that they are the same person as a long-time and well-known user here.

Let me know, please?

Password glitches

Actually, I didn't do anything... so I deserve no credit. But thanks!

At any rate, glad you are back, and sorry for the extra hassle of having us suspect that your own substitute user name was up to no good. From now on, though, they both should be good to go.
