    Unintentional misrepresentation?

    I really don't want to be an a$$ here, but I think there's a problem.

    danielkh's new signature gives people a false impression that he is a moderator here. As far as I can tell, he is not.
    I realize he is a moderator at the new StreetDeck forums, which is all well and good, but what is the point of advertising that fact here?

    Personally, since there is now TRULY no affiliation between mp3car & SD/DigitalWheelz, the signature constitutes misrepresentation, intentional or otherwise.
    It could very well lend itself to some confusion, especially to new members believing that daniel is a moderator here, which he is not (at least not according to the Forum Leaders page).

    I think something needs to happen to prevent any confusion and/or misrepresentation.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    I have removed the confusing signature.

    Actually my sig said I was a mod on the streetdeck forums, followed by the streetdeck forum link, followed by the disclaimer so that people here don't think I officially represent Streetdeck.

    No biggy. Thanks for fixing it.

    Please, if the new one is in any way confusing are misrepresentative, rather than post a thread publicly that I won't even know about if I'm not watching, then send an infraction along with removing my .sig.......

    (I mean, come on, the list of people you would report this too ain't that big. Doesn't need a worldwide forum)

    ...A simple pm would have taken care of it. Either to the admin's or better yet, to me.
    My opinion is my own.
