Note: The Invite Company button only becomes visible 96 hours after the first post is made in the thread. Also, the OP (thread starter) must make at least one additional post in the thread to make the button visible. Only the OP can see the Invite Company button.

That's it :)
Please what will I do when I can't find the company name on the drop down?

FPA Forums Team Note: Select "Other Company".

I don't want the company to use my real name and surname in their reply. Do you ban them however from mentioning names?

Most companies are smart enough not to post private client information in public threads.

If you are worried and want to reduce the chances, after sending the invitation, post a reply of your own in the thread specifically asking the company to address you only by your username.

If a company does use personally identifying information in your thread, hit the Report Abuse button on the offending post and specify what information should be removed. I or one of my moderators will do some editing.

Ahhhh...the good old days where, if we don't have a type writer, write/put our words down on paper, sealed the letter in an envelope, go to the post office, buy a stamp & stick that to the envelope and drop that into the letter collection post box.
Then we wait...and wait... and wait some more for a reply to our letter.
Ah yes...the good old days!:p
