Isn't it time we changed the name of this Forum?

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by MrTracey, Aug 30, 2011.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. FR20
    Recruiting Campaigns
    Full Recruitment plan
    A third of the Army, and nearly half the size of the Regular force in 2020?
    TA soon to be integrated in the Field Army (wef Apr 12)
    Deputy Commander Army (Reserves) appointed.

    'Just' TA?

    I think not.

    'TA' is now appropriate.
  2. FR2020 is, funnily enough, still about 9 years away.

    So at the moment we still are 'Just TA'.

    Recruiting campaigns dont seem to have gotten any better either, the new adverts on radio are embarassing to say the least.
  3. Why do you assume that the word 'just' is being used as a pejorative?

    For me the title means 'only matters to do with the TA' in order to prevent it being cluttered with other junk, rather than 'crap fit for STABs only'.

    Ooooh! Somebody got out the wrong side of bed this morning!!

    I agree with the OP, the title should be "TA Forum - Open weekends only".

  10. Bit sensitive aren't you deary?

    I bet you push to the front of the queue in McDonald's yelling "make way for a servant of the Queen!" Don't you?

    The CO's put the money and time into creating the forum so can call it "Fat Gareths embarrassing fellow TA soldiers forum" if they want.
  11. I think it should be renamed "Just TA, in particular the Royal Signals as they have no cap on MTD's or recruitment"
  12. I just thought I'd get it in before the cheesers started.

    Oh, and someone hasn't been to sleep yet. This headache isn't going to make itself go.

    May I just add, that I've met some really nice TA type people. There's some right fucking dickheads, but there are some people who actually care about it.

    I couldn't be arrsed having 2 jobs myself, it's bad enough lying in bed all day and giving duff advice out to losers on here WHO CAN'T BE BOTHERED TO READ THEIR PAY STATEMENT.

    That's just me though. Take me as you find me.

  13. But..........When exactly is payday this month!?

    *Runs and hides*
  14. I'm perfectly happy with Just TA, I only post about matters that just affect the TA in it. If I have a Gunner question I post there, if I have a question about Pay I post in that relevent area, unless of course its a pay matter about MTD etc

    But if you have a monk on about it why not call it "TA Matters", then you can have a ill deserved feeling of pride because you "matter"
