There’s a simple solution to this - just invest in a cheaper, lower resolution monitor. That way, less lines appear on the screen. It works for me…
DECEMBER NEW MEMBER OF THE MONTH
Well, our clever bots have been doing the numbers again to decide who will win our prized 'New User of the Month’ badge.
Either they’re still taking it easy after the Christmas break or there was simply one super stand-out new contributor, because they’ve only picked one rather than their usual two badge winners!
So extra congrats to our winner:
@Wineman74! You got stuck in with some d’Arenberg chat and made us chuckle with a typo which suggested you’d been a member of The Society for over a millenia. We look forward to getting to know you better!
Hello to all our new members (there have been quite a few of you in the last few days - starting 2019 right, I see!) - why not start a topic about something you’re passionate about?
I’m glad my typo was appreciated!
I look forward to reading and contributing in 2019.
Hi there, I’m wondering whether I’m the first new community member of 2019 - or has someone else beaten me to it :0)
My name is Terri, 43 from London. I’ve been a member of the Wine Society for a long time but for some reason never joined this community - until I saw the message a week or so ago about the live tasting chat (the one with the Turkish wine) which I thought looked great and is ‘close to home’ as my parents moved there about 15 years’ ago!
So - I love wine. I’m WSET 3 qualified and am waiting for the results of a French Wine Scholar exam I took in December (through the Wine Scholar Guild). An interesting fact I suppose (am I going on too long here?!) is that I quit my corporate life in June last year to follow my passion for wine and communications (in effect I write, organise, and event manage for living). It started with the summer in France and then started my first job in the wine industry around October.
I’m always almost accompanied by my border collie Rex who is way more popular on Twitter than me!
Looking forward to getting involved in the Community!
JANUARY NEW USERS OF THE MONTH!
Those savvy Community bots have been hard at work behind the scenes again, and they’ve picked two of our newest recruits to win our ‘New User of the Month’ badge.
Congrats this time to:
Welcome to all of our new users - I hope you’re enjoying taking part and I look forward to chatting with you all soon.
What a nice start to the year. Looking forward to more virtual tastings
