Q: What is the Shop Talk Message Board?
A: Message boards are chronological records of
people's discussions about a given topic. At Shop Talk, most of
the discussions are about medical supply merchants or medical supply products.
The basic idea is that one person makes a message board post in one of
the boards. S/he is then responded to by another person who is also
interested in the medical supply merchant or product. More people
read these posts and add to the collective knowledge of the community.
Q: What's the difference between a chat room and a
A: A chat room is a place where you go and engage
other people in real-time. Text scrolls upwards on your screen as
individuals "talk" to one another. If you find something that someone
writes to be compelling, you'll type in a response and it will appear
on the screen for everyone in the room to see. Once you leave a
chat room, there is generally no historical record kept of the conversation.
Also, the topics in a chat room are wide-ranging and generally not as
well organized as message boards. Chat rooms are most conducive
to lighter, more socially focused conversations.
On message boards each message written on a message board
has its own page and shows up alone. People then read that message
and have time to think about and respond to it. Message boards are permanent
records of the information that can be referred to every day, even weeks
or years after it was written. Message boards act more as research
and publishing tools than as chat rooms.
Q: How are Shop Talk’s message boards organized?
A: Shop Talk’s message boards are organized based
on categories of medical supply merchants and medical supply products.
We group all of the medical supply merchants together, alphabetically.
Our medical supply product message boards are organized based on Medsupplyfinder’s
product categories and subcategories.
Q: How to navigate the Shop Talk Message Boards:
A: Many people who come to the Shop Talk message
boards choose to just read other people's posts. Using a specific
post in our “Diagnostic Instruments” category as an example, here is what
the basic navigation looks like:
Diagnostic Instruments / 3M Littman Stethoscope / Classic
Clicking "Diagnostic Instruments" sends you to the list
of all the diagnostic instruments included in the Medsupplyfinder database.
Clicking "3M Littman Stethoscope" sends you to a listing of all of the
3M Littman stethoscopes in the Medsupplyfinder database. Finally,
clicking “Classic II” sends you to a listing of all the individual messages,
in chronological order, that are posted regarding 3M Littman Classic II
Problem Posts :
When reading a post, you will notice a link that says
"Problem Post". You may use this to notify us of posts that require
About Us page. S uch violations include: spamming, personal attacks, hyping,
etc. It should not be used as a forum for disagreements.
Q: How to write a post to the Shop Talk Message Boards:
A: On every Shop Talk product page you are provided
with a box in which to type your message. Once you finish typing
the message, just click "Submit." Your message will always show
up as the last message on the board, in chronological order.
Important: Make sure to read your post carefully before
sending it, because once you've posted a message, you can't go back to
delete or edit your message.
Q: What does "Unthreaded" and "Threaded" mean?
A: Unthreaded - lists posts in strictly chronological
Threaded - Threaded discussions are grouped according
to a specific subject. This makes it easy to follow each small discussion
on a board. The difference between threaded and unthreaded is that
threaded takes the subject into consideration first, and the chronological
And I would rather have a replica watches sale
that had decent servicing throughout the decades than a watch that still has its original crown, seals and crystal. But I know that there are rolex replica sale
of people who prefer just the opposite. I've learned that a lot about buying and collecting rolex replica
has to do with aesthetics. There is very little interest in the mechanical movement of the watch, people always trust it to be good. Many collectors tend to be more interested in a beautiful dial, or rolex replica uk
pair of hands, than to making sure the movement is all beautiful and fresh. Nothing wrong with that, of course, and these watch replica watches sale
are fairly easy to service, but I always make sure that the watch is in good technical working order as well. It is really a nice watch. Thanks for sending the glasses for the replica watches sale
