Hello everyone!

My name is Dav and I have banked with Monzo for around 2 years now.

I’ve worked here for about 6 months and I’ve been on the social media team for a short while too. Really looking forward to getting stuck into the forums here and learning some names and faces! :raised_hands:

Here’s a little bit about me:

I can usually be found playing Mario Kart 8 on my switch, and if anyone has any game suggestions I would love to hear them. Also if anyone fancies a race, I’m so down for that.

I just bought an Audi TT from '99 and I know nothing about cars, so if anyone here is into cars, please let me know so I can ask you for help should I ever break down :sweat_smile: I’d also be interested to see some other cars if anyone else here has a TT, or just anything else of interest!

I’ve been a drummer for about 3 years now, although I haven’t played at all recently. I just bought a saxophone too, but I have no idea how to play it. If anyone out there is into sax, again, please let me know so I can learn from you!

Thats all for now, thanks to everyone for reading!

Hello and welcome :wave:

I have Mario Kart for switch but I rarely get time to play it :cry:

I have an Audi A7, not as sporty as the TT but it still moves! :smiley:

Hi everyone :wave:

I’ve been lurking the forums for over a year and have only just decided it’s probably best I actually make an account. I have just re-joined Monzo after switching away to another bank (what a big mistake that was) and I’m so glad to be back.

During the day I work for an IT support company as a web and digital designer. When I’m on my lunch break I tend to usually shoot for the Monzo forums before I check any other social media :see_no_evil:

Looking forward to getting involved in some topics! :eyes:

Hi @Eco & welcome :wave:

By now, your stealth-skills will have worked wonders - you’ll already know the helpful, friendly and different opinion-based voices here, which helps to make it massively entertaining and positive to be part of the :monzo: community :+1:

Hey people! I just joined to submit an idea of the ability to order payments that are coming in and out on the same day, now I just need to find out how to submit a post… o.o

HI Simon & welcome :wave:

You’ve managed to post a reply in a topic, now to go for the biggie - a topic!
Click/tap on the Monzo logo at the top-left of this page and you should see ‘+ New Topic’ at the top-right under your avatar image;


Click/tap on that to create & post a new topic.

If only the button would appear!

Then it’ll likely be a trust level issue as you are a new user.
Have a read here and try to get to Level 1, then it may appear as if by magic!;

Interesting:

Users at trust level 0 cannot

  • Send personal messages to other users
  • “Reply as new topic” via Link button (UI removed)
  • Flag posts
  • Post more than 1 image
  • Post any attachments
  • Post more than 2 hyperlinks in a post
  • Have actual links in the ‘about me’ field of their profile (will be silently and temporarily converted to plain text)
  • Mention more than 2 users in a post
  • Post more than 3 topics
  • Post more than 10 replies
  • Edit their own posts after more than 24 hours

It says post more than 3 topics for trust level 0. Am I trust level -1? XD

Our Trust Levels differ slightly from the default ones so don’t take those exact figures as gospel! Welcome :blush:

I also recall a new user recently reporting the same, or similar, thing and without doing too much, the ‘+ New Topic’ button appeared without prompting.

Greetings all - a quick note to say hello. I’m a new applicant for a Monday card.

I spend most of my working life abroad; Mexico, SA, Europe, the UAE and more recently in northern Iraq - wherever the clients need me to be.

The rest of my working year is spent drumming up new excuses to travel…

Welcome to the Community @WRG :tada:
I’d love to travel alot more than I have, most recent for me was a month in Australia :slight_smile:
Most of the UAE I’ve seen is inside Dubai Airport haha!

Welcome and enjoy your Monday card :wink:

Out of interest, what is it that you do for a living? :slight_smile:

Hey! I am also working in AML but from a ‘RegTech’ perspective. Just joined the Monzo community!

What exactly are you working on?

I think when the username is ‘anon’ followed by loads of numbers that means they’ve deleted their account. So sadly you’re not going to get a reply :slightly_frowning_face:
