If you wish to discuss bans or warnings please do so via PM. To place a complaint against a moderator, send a PM to a super moderator. All Moderators are equal, any decision made by a moderator must be adhered to. If a moderator tells you something you do not like, do not go to another moderator looking for a different answer. If you are caught doing this you will be banned. The moderators work as a team and respect the decisions made by their peers and will help enforce them unless an administrator tells them differently.
If you have an issue with how the forum is run, then notify one of our administrator and we will look into the situation. We have in the past and still do appreciate any input that you offer this forum. But critical input and/or judgmental postings towards the staff will result in you getting banned.

                    Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! We received our Discharge papers a couple of weeks ago quite unexpectedly since we thought we still had 10 months to go. A wonderful feeling.
                    There are so many things to be thankful for this year and the end of our Ch. 13 is one of them.

                    I hope you all enjoy your day. sammie

                        Happy thanksgiving everyone!! I am happy and thankful that this is my last year in bk also. Heading to the post office shortly to get money order # 59!!!!!

                        My Thanksgiving was good, until last night when I slipped on ice and banged my head pretty good. I ended up in the ER. a $150 co-pay, and who know what the rest of the bill will be, plus 3 staples in my head, ouch! No concussion so I'm thankful. Just a wicked headache.

                          I just sent my last online ePay payment today. #60.

                          I owe no one a dime. In fact, the trustee has a balance on hand of over $4400.00. Two creditors quit cashing checks and one surrendered the their account (17K). There have been no payouts from the trustee since 08/2014. Hope I get some of that money back. Even if I don't...I'm done!

                            Glad to see some celebrations going on, but sorry to hear of the cracked skull. OUCH!!!!

                            I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving. We had a houseful of family plus one friend who would have been alone. We are not in stellar shape or really anywhere near where we want to be, but we are on a better track as I have returned to work and have gained a paycheck again.

                            Still fighting the fight, but trying to keep it light.
